I have an issue with my monitor.

I just installed Ubuntu 11.10, but the monitor that is plugged in doesn't appear anywhere. And by doesn't appear, I mean that in the "Displays" menu, it doesn't even appear as "Unknown", I just have my screen that appears and nothing else.

It is connected through VGA, and the monitor is recognized with no problem on Windows 7. It is a Dell monitor.

I'm not a pro with Ubuntu, so any help to diagnose the issue would be really helpful (and help me learn how to fix this kind of monitor issue in the future)

Thanks !
