I have a six year old Compaq laptop with problems of the the screen blacking out when it is moved . . . so I just bought an Acer V173 Monitor and attached it via VGA sockets. Whilst the Windows XP background screen comes up, no icons appear or access to Windows or programs is available on the screen while everything is fine on the laptop monitor. What is going on?

Sounds like it's multi-monitoring. Open something and see if you can drag that window off to the right or left of the screen.
