The external monitor works with MS Win 7, with MS Win 8, with Debian
6, and with Ununtu 12.04 and with Ubuntu 14.04.

On another Acer "laptop" computer with Debian 7 installed, the
external monitor works with MS Win 8, and with Ubuntu 14.04, and not
with Debian 7. That computer has an nVidia graphica adaptor, that has
previously been mentioned on the list.

Does Debian 7 work with external monitors?

I have no problems with two monitors, but I do things the easy way and use the SMXI script. http://smxi.org/
