well... its very similar to the last video I posted, excepted I used the Express Card 34 adapter.

it was relatively simple:

1. hook up video card/PE4H adapter/PSU/E2C2 ExpressCard on my queensize bed
2. install Radeon Drivers on laptop
3. plug E2C2 adapter into my laptop
4. reboot like 4 times
5. activate 2nd display
6. be awesome

most new laptops don't have the ExpressCard slot anymore as its older, so if you don't have one, check out my first video where I used the mPCI-E adapter to hook the same setup up to my Acer:

the first 5 or so minutes is disclaimers to answer the 3 questions I will get HUNDREDS of times :) 

I got a dual GTX 460 2WIN being shipped to me right now, so once I get it and another PSU (it needs at LEAST 30 amps on the 12V rail to run the 2WIN) I will post another thread

No... I just have to worry about accidentally knocking the whole thing over in the middle of gaming... or accidentally bumping into the power cable... not saying either of those things happened multiple times... :/
