I am using a Latitude E7240 and have an ACER AL1917W

Customer Question

I am using a Latitude E7240 for work and have an ACER AL1917W Monitor at home. My old laptop drove the monitor just fine but this new one will not start the monitor without a lot of coaxing, using the FnF8 switch between clone and extended screens. This laptop doesn't have a VGA port so it using a mini USB to VGA dongle. Would you have a method of charging the monitor to launch with the laptop instead of the switching game I'm playing?
