I use windows 7 on Sony flash 4 GB and change BIOS to boot USB.

I checked Video adapter Total available Graphics Memory 251 MB
I checked device manager display shows only one while Windows XP shows two display adapters.
You'll have to enable 2nd monitor by clicking "2nd Monitor" and checkmark "Extend desktop onto this monitor" so you can have extended desktop view on 2nd monitor. If' you are not that expert then don't mess with setting otherwise, if you accidently checkmarked "Use this device as the Primary monitor" on 2nd monitor, the 1st monitor will go blank or swapped as "extended" desktop
. You'll need 2nd monitor to change back to 1st monitor on netbook.
Netbook like Laptop should have "FN" key (function key) usually on Left side of laptop between CTL and Windows key (next to ALT key) and see the "F1, F2, F3....." keys have matching color coded icons on it which match color of FN key. If you want to swap to 2nd monitor, you can PRESS and HOLD FN key and TAP one of function key on top of keyboard that have icon look like monitor. You can plug in monitor on netbook and fiddle around it. It'll swap around when you presses the function button, don't freak out when Netbook's monitor became blank, tap the key and it'll turn back on.
I've used that several times before and even most recently, I had to move the 1st monitor to 2nd monitor and set 2nd monitor as a "primary" when I installed new graphic card in PC that have built-in graphic chipset and tape over the 1st monitor jack to prevent customer plugging in wrong jack or else they'll see extended desktop without "start" button & clock the screen. I was just "forcing" customer to use new graphic card jack which just became a "primary". The reason I do that because Onboard graphic chipset is wussy and problemic for system's performance. In that way, that'll keep them happy with fast performance on their system.
