Well, you need a video card that can support a dual monitor setup. As far as a laptop I personally haven't seen this setup but if it is possible then thats how you're going to accomplish it. You'll find them with multi port setups on the back of the card itself. Also you need to make sure your case will support the addition. If not you can make the hole yourself or attempt to purchase a new case with the holes required. I've only done/seen this done on PC's but that should translate the same

External monitor only works if I start windows vista in safe mode


First after you boot it up normally (not Safe Mode) can you move the mouse far to the left or to the right do you see the mouse. If you do see the mouse pointer you are running dual monitor mode and the laptop screen is set as the primary monitor. You have to run it in Save Mode and set the external monitor as the primary monitor. Hit the Start button then select Help+Support and in the search box enter "dual monitors". Read how to set up the primary monitor.

Second maybe you need to activate the external monitor. When laptops boot normally (not Safe Mode again) with a external monitor connected you have to hit the Fn (function) key (probably blue near Alt key) and some other number key (it probably has a blue monitor symbol on it) I'm not sure which one. This key sequence is a toggle sequence. In other words when you boot a laptop it goes directly to the laptop screen then the first time you do a Fn + number key combination it will turn on the external monitor and turn off the laptop screen the next time you push Fn+number key it will turn on both monitors (external and laptop screen) the third time it will turn on only the laptop screen and so forth.

1. How do I watch the same movie on both screens on the Philips PET9422 37 9 in. Dual screen DVD players? 2. I bought a refurbished model but did not get a user's manual. How do I get one?


hi,
You can do the following to watch the same moving in both the screen.
1.Connect the AV out of both the unit together. with supplied av cord

2. If you want to watch the movie played on the first unit then put the DVD/AV IN switch of first monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of second one to AV IN.Now you can watch the movie played on the first monitor on both monitors.

3. IF you want to watch movie played on the second unit then put DVD/AV IN switch of second monitor to DVD and the DVD/AV IN switch of the first monitor to AV IN. Now you can watch the movie played on the second monitor on both monitors.

I have the manual of the same . As it is large pdf file can't sent through fixya. If you can sent your email id through fixya will sent you the manual
ok

I have CMV 946D Monitor and i am trying to connect it to my laptop via DVI cable and it doesn't work. my laptop is already connect to another monitor using VGA cable. do i need any driver or does DVI...


Sorry, but you can use only one port at a time, not both, It is either DVI or VGA. If you want to drive two monitors, you need to lok for docking station with dual video card.

Dual Screens with a VGA connection


The easiest way would be to purchase a video card that has 2 vga ports on it, allowing dual monitor support. Here is an example.

If you know go in grafik option, you have one option dual monitor (something like that, depend of grafik card, if intel that is so).Enable that option and turn off laptop. Put monitor cable in laptop and turn on monitor.
I don´t know am I help you, but that must work.

I want to use my laptop as a monitor for my desktop


Check VGA cord connection, possibly try another, shorter VGA cord, plugging in cords BEFORE booting up computer, with monitor power on also. No signal is just computer telling you that it is not connecting.
You may have to go into Setup when computer boots up and turn on or select external monitor as some laptops may require this. Good Luck!
This is a great place for solutions that will save you lots of $$$$. I love it and it is my first contact with FixYA! jaballou

Dual Monitor


To arrange multiple monitors
This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifDisplay in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.

Switch to alternate 2 computers and dual monitors


What you probably want is a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch that supports dual monitors. It's a simple device that allows you to plug multiple computers into one set of monitors, keyboard, and mouse and switch between controlling them.

I don't know of any that support mixing analog and digital connections for the monitors, but using a VGA to DVI adapter for one of the monitors should solve that problem cheaply.

Nx 5000 dual screen problem


What program are you using for the dual setup? Place a shortcut in startup. usually an external monitor is used in place of the laptop LCD. The Monitor may need to be #1 and the laptop LCD#2 http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/intel852gm/sb/cs-009064.htm?iid=search& This site may help too. Good Luck, Tim
