Hello I have a Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop it has a vga outlet....could I connect this via a vga lead to another monitor?
Thanks

Yes. There will be a Function Key combination to toggle the display on the desktop to the external monitor, just the laptop or both. (On My Laptop the Fn Key + F4)

on my dell it is F8 and has CRT/LCD on it. I bet yours is a different number!

Cheers

No not at all. Have a look at your user manual, every laptop is different but the Fn Key + F? will be designated. Post back the exact model number and I will, time permitting tell you what the appropriate F Key is. (Or another forum member will!)
