laptops usually have toggleable monitor key in fn+F5 or fn+F8 (it is usually shown as separate icon on F keys) which toggles output between: laptop only, cloned to external, external only.

What kind of connection does the laptop use to connect the monitor? Just a VGA input? Usually when you connect a monitor to a laptop, it will switch to the monitor automatically. If you cannot get it to swap to the monitor with Fn keys as mentioned before... Then there may be a bigger issue with it.
