Default Adding Additional VGA Ports to Laptop???

I have a gateway laptop and coming out of the back of it is a single VGA Output port; my question is that any way to get TWO monitors hooked up to it? As in the main screen and two seperate images on flat screens?

Just to clarify I am not trying to get a mirror image on each screen.

Thanks for any help/ideas

Well, no, I don't think there's a way. My laptop actually has an S-Video out on it, though, so you may can work something out with that. However, I've never heard of/seen a monitor with an S-Video input, and it looks terrible on a regular television because of the resolution. If you have a projector though, or HDTV, I think it may work just fine!
