    you should be able to turn it on from your video settings, i have a inspiron 8200 with a gf2 go and it lets me extend the desktop or clone. i think if you start up the computer with the external monitor attached it used that one as the primary. :dunno:

    look for a function button on the top or second row of keys that has the moniter picture that you see on the back of a vid card, sometimes you can switch that way too
    you could also look at the manual online.
