Acer laptop problem

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hi all,
I have an older acer laptop that I used to use for email and other
things but now it won't power up without an external monitor connected.
Once it is running the external monitor can be removed and the lcd
works fine. Does anybody know of something that I could buy / build
that would trick it into thinking it has an external monitor connected?
