I want to setup the dual display with another monitor. If it is possible, how do I set it up? Is there any hardware I need to purchase in order for this to work? Thanks.

Or do you mean using 2 external monitors? If you do then I'm out of ideas. :cool: :redface: :frown: :smile: :tongue: :wink: CKDom March 3, 2004 3:18:39 AM I'm thinking of doing word processing on the Notebook's screen and at the same time I can view movie on the Monitor screen. I tested plugging the monitor to the VGA port but it will just show you what the Notebook is displaying. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
