Default Computer gurus I could use some help???

Hey guys,

I have a laptop with windows 7 and I have hooked it to my HDTV and it works fine.

So.......... What I am wondering is how do you get it to work dual screen so you have 2 things open at the same time?

Any help is appreciated!!!!

It should be controlled by the Display > Settings in the control panel. However if the video card or that portion of the motherboard is not set up for it you will not be able to use both the screen and TV.

If I am wrong though someone please correct me.

control panel > apperance and personalization > connect to external Display > and there should be a drop down box that will alow you to select duplicate monitors, extend monitors, or single monitor you will want to extend them.
