I"m not sure you can do it without changing the default screen on your original screen.When you hook up another screen to your laptop (not sure what graphics you have) you normaly need to go into the display area of control panel and select which screen is default so without being able to see on your screen I don't know how you would change it to the second display. If you've tied hooking up your vga to the new display and don't get a signal then this would be the reason.Their may be a way I'm not aware of so hopefully someone else has a suggestion that will work.

I believe the command is Fn + F5, but look at your F keys for one that says "CRT/LCD"
