I assume your using Vista? What graphics card are you using?

I am thinking that the laptop isn't setup properly. You should be able to configure monitors with whatever program is used with your graphics card. You can appropriately number your monitors, set up resolutions etc...

Okay then.

On the desktop right click.
Click on NVIDIA control panel.
Then select Set up multiple displays. (Have a look a the image I have)


Here you can setup your display's(I only have one, you should have two). I would suggest disconnecting the external monitor until windows starts up. Don't forget their maybe a switch monitor button on the keyboard like 'fn F4'.

Hope this helps.
