Acer Aspire 5100 Video Card Issues

Hello all!

I have an Acer Aspire 5100 laptop - the specifications are located at Acers Website if those are helpful.

I ran SUSE 10.3 with no problem. The video card for my laptop gives me the ability to use dual monitors. Unfortunately, with 11.0 this no longer works. My screen goes all fuzzy when I plug it in after configuring the double monitors while the computer was already started, and if I start the computer with the monitor plugged into the back, it shows up only on the monitor, and not on the laptop! I’m completely baffled, despite being fairly knowledgeable about computers (so please don’t give obvious answers such as “restart,” although I appreciate anyone trying to be helpful).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
