Using external monitor as a slave
by chrishe - 5/25/06 6:04 AM
I have a Toshiba Satellite 5200 Laptop running the latest verion of Windows XP.
This laptop has an external monitor port and I want use this second monitor as a display projector for presentations. In other words I want the external monitor to be an exact duplicate of the laptop screen.
Unfortunately the only way I've found to get this external monitor to work at all is by using it as display 2 on the Control Panel -> Display -> Settings tab. In this way I can set up two different windows to run in each display, which may be useful in some circumstances, but it's not what I want.
Isn't there a way of selecting this second monitor as a slave to the first? I've tried everything - I've even read the instruction manual! - to no avail.
Thanks for your help.
