Compaq Presario CQ40-515AX Windows 8 & external monitor - only have Microsoft Basic Display Adapter

Compaq Presario CQ40 Notebook
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (32-bit)

Compaq Presario CQ40 Notebook PC VJ985PA#ABG 515AX?

 

I have installed Windows 8 - but now cannot use func F4 to switch to external monitor. I get "Your PC can't project to another screen, Try reinstalling the driver or using a different video card." How do I do this?

 

When I look in device manager it has Microsoft Basic Display Adapter.
