Sony Vaio Laptop VGA Connection

I am running a widescreen laptop on 1280 X 800 resolution. I need to keep running the laptop screen at the same time as having an external display on a 4:3 ratio of 1280 X 1024.

How do i set the laptop up to do this?

If it is like my Vaio then just connect the external display to the laptop and then holding down the Fn key press F7 to toggle through the various combinations available.
