To add a second monitor first make sure your laptop has a VGA connection (newer laptops have replaced these with HDMI or DVI, if you have these connections then use them)

now plug the VGA into the port, if the laptop is setup right it will pick it up automatically. if not you will have to do it yourself

so first right click on the desktop and go to screen resolution
in this new window there will be an option to either duplicate or extend with the choice of which monitor to use.

set it up how and as you wish if you are going for more than one screen it is recommended you buy a desktop with a graphics cards that supports up to 3 monitors

How to add a 2nd monitor


Most laptops have a VGA port so an external monitor can be added. Then you might have to press a Fn key combination to get the other monitor to display.
If you want to add a second monitor to a Desktop computer, you'll need to install another graphics card. A USB adapter card is available; do a search for different models available.

If neither of these answer your question, please explain exactly what you need a monitor to display from; you posted to the Network and Wireless Adapters section, which is confusing..

I have a dell laptop that I want to add a second monitor to. My monitor is a HP L1755 and my laptop has Windows 7 Ultimate on it. I can not find a driver for this... any suggestions?


Hi there, if i read you correctly you are trying to connect external monitor on laptop. As you use old Monitor for this you can probably establish only VGA connection . For this you dont need any special drivers if you use VGA external connector on laptop. You just need to find out right combination on keyboard to activate external monitor to be activated or right click on desktop then properties and display option multiple displays. Of course when you manage to activate mode for external screen please use lower resolution like 1027*768 for second display aka monitor to test .Cheers

You need to connect both monitors to a computer. Monitors do not daisy-chain (in general). The exception are some SCART-enabled monitors.

What is your source (desktop)? What is the make/model of your new monitor? Please add a comment with the video outputs/inputs for your source and second monitor.

Many newer desktops have two or three outputs. (Some video cards have display port outputs which with active adapters can support 2 monitors each.)

If your computer has two or more outputs and your new monitor has an input compatible with the extra output, get the appropriate DVI, DVI-HDMI or HDMI cable for your new monitor. See the next section if both monitors have VGA input.

If you have a desktop with only one video output, you may be able add a video card to support two monitors. (Depending on your computer, you may need to upgrade the power supply to support a video card.) Then get the appropriate adapter or cables to add the second monitor. (Note: if both of your monitors have only VGA inputs, check the specs for video cards carefully. Not all modern cards support analog outputs on their DVI, HDMI or Display Port connections. These digital outputs would require a digital to analog converter to give the VGA out.) However, if one of your monitors will accept DVI digital signals and the other VGA, add a card with one of each of these connections and a DVI cable to match. (This is an if needed extra; many monitors still ship with only a VGA cable.)

Then turn off your computer, open it and add the video card. Install the drivers with only one monitor attached. Then power down the computer and connect the second monitor. Turn on both monitors before turning on the computer again. Most of the time, the second monitor should be recognized (by Windows) and the appropriate refresh rate and resolution chosen. If not, you may need to enter the Display settings to set the monitor up.

I have seen some computers/video cards where only one output is initially enabled. You may have to go into the device settings to enable it. (Laptops often need their external video ports enabled in the BIOS.) Bad video ports/cards/cables do happen so RMA if needed.

The USB video adapter, http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812225007 , can be added to a desktop to give a second VGA output but it isn't the best solution. USB bandwidth limits are significantly lower than those for a PCIe x16 slot or an old AGP slot.

I hope this helps. Please add more information about your system if you want more assistance with this problem.

(who has done dual monitors with older and newer computers. My old Pentium 4 with a Radeon x1350 video card was fine for driving a VGA monitor and an HDMI monitor (using a DVI to HDMI cable). My second generation i5 and P8Z68 motherboard system is also fine using the on-CPU video graphics for those same monitors. A video card would improve gaming but isn't required.)
