I'm trying to have dual monitors, one for my video game, and one for youtube/net

Hi, as the title says, i'm trying to have 2 monitors connected to my computer. One for video games, and one for watching youtube or netflix. So i can watch tv or videos while playing my game. The problem is when i have a full screen program on one screen and a video on the other, the game runs fine. but the video's picture is very laggy, yet the audio is fine. Running the game in a window fixes this, at the cost of a serious fps drop. Is there anyway to do this without running my game in a window? Thanks.

  3. You are going to have problems no matter what way you do this. Laptop's are not designed to do more than one monitor. You could possibly upgrade your gpu, but again it is a laptop and laptops are very hard to upgrade.
