External Display

I'm running Windows XP on a Dell Insipron 8600. I tried hooking up an
external monitor to the VGA connector on the back and no display showed.
Should it automatically? Without the need to make some change in Device
Properties to make it happen? I should say that the laptop monitor itself
has gone all white so that is why I'm trying to hook up an external monitor.

My neighbor also had trouble trying to install a wide screen LG monitor.
Nothing was appearing on the second monitor. He ended up calling HP tech
support and they remotely installed the correct drivers. For some reason he
had no luck when trying to update driver through the control panel.
