    I recently upgraded my notebook with Windows Vista Home Premium.

    On the Display Configuration, I can see two monitors. I then click 'attached' on the second monitor, and click on 'extend my desktop to this monitor'. Upon doing this, I can only see the display on my laptop monitor. Moving the mouse to the second monitor seems to work as the mouse disappear from the first monitor.
    Fn+F5 seems to yield nothing as there is nothing on my external monitor.

    External Monitor: Philips 105S3

    Notebook specification:
    Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo Processor T2400 (1.83GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB)
    Operating System: Microsoft(R) Windows(R) Vista Home Premium
    Display: 14.1-inch diagonal XGA (1024x768 native resolution)
    Graphics Controller: NVIDIA(R) Quadro(R) NVS 110M with 128MB DDR discrete graphics memory plus up to 128MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory using NVIDIA(R) TurboCache technology
    Memory: 2 gB DDR2 667MHz SDRAM
    Hard Drive: 80GB HDD (5400rpm, Serial-ATA)
