Sony Vaio VGN-TXN25N Laptop with Intel 945 Express Video has no Video Out on Windows 7

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-TXN25N Laptop, it has a Mobile Intel 945 Express Chipset Onboard Video Card.  I recently installed Windows 7 and now the VGA Out is not working.  Under the Screen Resolution settings 2 displays are showing, but no image shows up on the External Monitor.  I know the monitor and cable are working properly.  I have tries Fn+ F7, I have also tries (Windows Key) + P and nothing...any Ideas?

Fresh install.  Will an upgrade refectify the problem?

Just a Mass Storage Device that I can't seem to fund a driver for.

try this to identify the devices :

Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Information.
Now select  "Components" and highlight "Problem Devices".
All hardware devices with a driver problem will be listed here.
Make a note of the first line of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will show a Vendor number and a Device number (VENxxxxDEVxxxx) both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:   http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  Check the manufacturer's website first or google them
