Larry, you should have a VGA external port on the left side of your laptop. That is where you plug your external monitor in. <Fn> + <F5> will toggle your display from your LCD to the external monitor and to both. Check your computer for something that looks like #3 in the image :-) Hope this helps, good luck.

If the LCD and an external monitor does not work (make sure it is properly connected!!!!) you have a GPU circuitry failure.
