I have basically made my laptop into a desktop (it already was that since the battery port is unable to charge batteries, runs only on A/C). I hooked it up to a 19" Acer monitor that I have and extended the desktop onto it and turned off the laptop monitor.
The problem I am running into is that upon boot, the Acer monitor loses the Panel and I am basically stuck without it until I get into the monitor settings on the laptop and turn off the laptop monitor. After this, the panel reappears on the Acer. Now, my laptop is a tad difficult to get to and its own monitor is beginning to die.
So, I am wondering whether there is a way to make the Acer monitor the main and only monitor it uses? If that is not possible, I would at least like for it not to lose the panel upon boot...
Anyway, thanks in advance. I will probably not be able to reply here until late Saturday evening.
