Cannot Clone Screen to External Monitor Acer One Aspire

\015 On my Acer One Aspire I used to be able to right click, go to ''monitor output'' and change output to an external moniotr, but that item has disappeared from the right click menu. Now if i disconnect the laptop from the external monitor, i can extend desktop, but i cant get the external monitor to act as the primary monitor (what i really want to do is turn off the laptop monitor, not have both monitors going simultaenously. i was able to do it once, without the ''monitor output'' from the pull down menu on right click, but i am not sure how i did it cannot repeat now. also my fn 5 key does not work to switch monitors. ideally i would like to get the ''monitor output'' back on the pull down menu, and get fn 5 key back, failing that, just getting to clone the monitor to the external so i can shut off the laptop monitor would be great.\015

Something to try if you think the ability is being hijacked by something running in the system. First, start in safe mode, you can do this by hitting F8 or F5 on boot before the Windows XP screen comes up but after post. If the keys work in Safe mode, then it is infact an application issue. If they don't, maybe you F5 key is sticking. Restart and then do the following to get full boot without the issue.

From the desktop click START > RUN > msconfig. Click on the Startup Tab and the Services tab. So you can see what is running in your system. Turn things off one at a time until you get back the use of the F5 key.

If something hi-jacked the F5 key this would let you disable it.

Now, if the problem is the video driver. NVIDIA for example has it's own little interface. You may not want to turn it off. However, once you know that is your major issue, you can use the NVIDIA control panel to restore your old functionality. It is under the settings.

If you find out it's a video program, toolbar, or virus then take it out and check the box to not remind you that the configuration has been limited. You can even set a policy to keep the application from loading or remove it from the registry.
Hello,

go to start menu, scroll to control panel and click click on it.

If you are using XP, click display, but if your are using vista, click personalize.

Then click display settings and I dialogue box will pop out.

You will then see two boxes, with a bold 1 & 2. Drag the box 2 to box one, an information will come out, press ok.

Every other settings that is pertaining to your external monitor can be adjusted on the display settings.

Good luck.
