I have a Dell XPS M1710, and since im now working from home a lot more I want to run a second monitor to act s my main monitor as im finding the screen too small and awkward to work with This is probly a dumb question as there are 2 video out sockets at the back, 1 is a dvi i think and the other a vga i think,
Do folks run extra monitors off laptops? Or will all that extra graphic processing end up killing my graphics card?
I have a 17inch TFT connected all the time (for photography)to either of my two laptops an HP & a Samsung. Using VGA-VGA. When first connected you can select either TFT / laptop or both screens by holding fn key and pressing the screen key which in both my cases is on the top row it has a box shape with a screen picture inside. Sometimes after changing you may have to reset the resolution by going into control panel 'Appearance and themes' Have win 7
