Hello dj50551,
This may help.
Give this a try.
Turn the computer completely off, hook up the external monitor, and reboot. After bootup(and still not seeing the other monitor) right click in the middle of your LAPTOP screen, select Properties, this will bring up the Display Properties window. Go to the Settings tab(far right). Please ensure that there are two monitors that appear. You should see a number 1 and number 2. Click on #1, this is your laptop screen, and ensure that there are tick marks next to:
Use this Device as the primary monitor. And Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor.

Then Click on #2 and ensure that there IS NOT a tick mark in the first box but that there IS one in the second.
Please reply if you require further assistance. It may be that that monitor is not compatible with your laptop. I would also suggest that you visit the manufacturers site of the laptop ond make sure you have all the latest video and chipset drivers.

Just install the HDD. Without a Windows XP or Vista Installation CD or DVD or a Acer Factory System Disk , did you get Recovery CD's with the machine? You could try to buy one from Acer Support. If you don't have the OS software, you have a paperweight. Acer Support here: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Aspire5315/Aspire5315sp2.shtml#
