What make/model of laptop is this ?

and is there any function keys on the keyboard that switch the monitor on/off then used in conjunction with the Fn key ?

My laptop is ASUS EeePC.
There is such function keys (Fn + F8) but nothing happens when I press it.

The most strange is when I plug the screen It switch on but then did not detect the computer...

Your second screen won't become active until you activate the VGA output and apply the settings as instructed here:
