Yes you should have a VGA connection at the rear of the laptop but you may need to press a key combination (Fn+ F7 on mine) to activate it

Connect the monitor to the black or blue VGA connector and using the “FN” key

(Function) and the “CRT/LCD” key look at the top of keyboard “F” keys

Hold down the FN key and press the CRT/LCD key once

Display will change as follows

Press once laptop display only

Press again external display only

Press again both laptop and external display

You must hold down the FN key each time you press the CRT/LCD key

Depending in the size of the monitor you will have to adjust the screen resolution

right click on windows desktop-properties-setting
