I have a Gateway netbook LT4004u with an Intel Atom N2600 processor running Windows 7 Starter. When I hook up an external monitor to the VGA port, my 'Screen Resolution' options fore multiple displays are:

Duplicate these displays
Show desktop only on 1
Show desktop only on 2

"Extend these displays" is not an option. Is this because of 'Windows 7 Starter'? Am I just out of luck or is there some update I can get to fix this?
