How can I use an external monitor on my Acer One laptop? I dont really care about having an extra monitor, I just want to be able to hook up an external one at times to have a larger screen to work on. Can I do this and have what is on my laptop screen show up on the external screen?

The Acer Aspire One has a VGA out connection.

To find out how to set what is displayed on the external monitor, please consult the manual.
