Extended Screen with integrated and external GPU

I basically need help with this. I was reading around. And had heard changing something in Bios. But my Bios doesn't have a Video tab or anything related to the Video. I have a external GPU that is an AMD Radeon HD 6450 and a integrated Intel 4000 in my Sager/Clevo(W240EU/W250EUQ/W270EUQ). Not quite sure what my motherboard is. Right now I am running my External GPU on a 28inch TV. While my laptop is just sitting on the table with it's monitor black and not working.

    I think by external you mean discrete graphics? Like your laptop has both the intel hd 4000 graphics and then also a radeon hd 6450 discrete graphics card? Then the external port (hdmi/dvi/vga) on your laptop is hooked up to a TV? Is that what I'm reading?

    If that is the case, usually on the laptop there will be a function key assigned to setting up external displays or extending your desktop onto a second monitor. It is like FN + F5, or something
    You can usually either duplicate the screen between the two, display on only one of the displays, or extend your desktop (Right Click desktop, go to Screen Resolution, select "Extend these displays" in the Multiple displays dropdown)

    Does that answer your question?

    No it does not. It is not a discrete gpu. It's literally an external gpu. I have a PCIe running out from my laptop. The way you mention is the simpliest way to extend the screen. Which I know how. What I am trying to do is basically run my external gpu on my monitor, while my integrated runs on my laptop screen.
