Both screens wont work

No mention of how much ram installed ???

Are you using ACER GRIDVISTA
This program handles the multi screen out put


Standard Screen Properties,,,,,,,

Try this

DESKTOP>Right click properties

With both screens connected.
There should be two windows displayed ,
a highlighted white one and a grey one


Should display a number 1 on the screen it has attached.
Should display a number 2 on the external screen.

Once you get IDENTIFY to work then set resolution sizes of both individual screen.Apply and ok to save settings

If using GRIDVISTA then set the setting for the output functions and save theme as a theme BOTH or LAPTOP AND EXTERNAL MONITOR and its accessible from the desktop right click.

Good luck I have a couple of these I use for my Media Centre wirelessly networked thru the house.Great machines.
