This used to be a simple task in XP your quote in post 1, so you have had it working on two monitors? like i said in post 3 windows starter does not support multi monitors put a linux distro on that should do it like kubuntu Kubuntu | Friendly Computing

My daughters netbook has windows 7 starter on it so I guess connecting an external monitor won't do me much good. I suppose one could try booting from one of the many Linux live distros. My netbook doesn't have an internal optical drive so I'd have to connect a USB drive or use a USB thumbdrive. I may not get to this for a while if at all.

netbooks are ok but limited intended for light computer work on the move but yes there are netbook editions of linux distros out there plus they make for it easy now with thumb drive install they have all the info over at there sites ubuntu and kubuntu are great for this just check there guidelines and the best thing its all free

What i meant by the xp comment was that i had done it on another computer with xp (at the time i didnt realize it was a limitation of win 7 starter). If I put the linux on instead, will I be able to extend the screen? I will try Ultramon first either way.

go and check here about the linux distros DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.
and look for the system requirements for the distros
