Hello Randy_46;

Most laptops have a vga or other port on the back or side to plug an external monitor in. Then in the monitor settings you would switch to external monitor. This all possible as long as you have another monitor or tv.

Check your laptop manual and see if there is an Fn+key combo to switch to an external monitor.
