Default monitor question!

This could be a stupid question and I hope I don't make an idiot of myself in my first post, but I was just wondering if there was any way to hook up computer monitors to laptops and run the display through the monitor. I was just wondering but thank you in advance for any help.

Default Re: monitor question!

There should be a vga out plug on the back of the laptop, blue in colour. Plug the monitor into that, depending on what video device you have (nVidia or ATi) the setting to send video to the second monitor should in the display properties.

There should be a standard VGA port somewhere on your laptop. It will be blue and should look identical to the one on the back of your PC...if it's VGA. :-D
