Hi,
What isn't fitting properly ?
The connection or the screen size ?

vga to vga works fine all you need to possibly do is connect the two and use Winkey+P keys
Select duplicate displays

Hi,
Okay lower the resolution and see what happens,
Right click the desktop back ground and click on screen resolution
Post what it was set on and lower it
Or use windows snap
Snap a Window to a Side

Not sure what you mean there's no monitor socket ?
