I know my way around a computer, and if I couldn't fix something myself, my other specialty of google searching would inevitably locate a solution.

This one has me stumped. No one ever hits this forum but it's worth a shot. 

I have a Dell Inspiron 9300 at home.  I also have a 19" dell flatscreen monitor for the dual setup that I had with my old laptop. I went to setup the same scenario with this laptop.  The monitor connects the laptop.  I hit the Fn+F8 thing and it'll switch right over to the monitor.  The problem is it will only do one or the other.  The Display/Settings stuff that normall pops right up with the options for 2 monitors doesn't even act that theirs anything connected. I want to be able to expand 1 computer across 2 screens.  I have triend everything and am at a loss.

Any help would be appreciated.

Someone suggested updating my video card driver.  How do I find out which one I have and where to download it??
