Auto-detect 2nd Monitor not working after fresh Install of Windows & SSD

Hey all, I've been digging around for an answer to this, but can't seem to find one. I've got a Dell Studio 1747 that was slowing down, so I installed a SSD and reinstalled windows. After that, I had to go through all the win updates & download Dell drivers. Most of everything is working, but one annoying thing is that I used to be able to plug my 2nd monitor (for extended display) into the vga port and it would automatically detect and extend to that display. But now, there is no change unless I go into "Screen Resolution" and choose "Detect". It seems there must be some kind of driver or utility that takes care of this, but I can't find it to download. Can anyone help me with this?

there may be a keyboard or hot key driver that would help you.
