How can I use a Laptop Display as a 2nd Desktop display? Tags: Nvidia Laptops Desktops Graphics Displays Last response: March 7, 2010 6:41 PM in Graphics & Displays Share Earl Barr March 7, 2010 5:17:23 PM I have an Acer Desktop PC and a Dell Laptop. I can run my PC Monitor as a 2nd display from the Laptop - no problem. What I want to do is use the Laptop Display as a 2nd display from the PC. I purchased a VGA Video Splitter - but when I connect it, the PC Monitor goes blank. When I go to Display setting on the PC, I do NOT see an option for a 2nd display. Assistance is appreciated.
