    I have an 'Icon' laptop which I baught in Tesco. Windows XP. I then purchaced a 19" LCD
    Screen from LIDL. I wanted to watch my laptop on the large screen, but it does'nt show me what is on my laptop I have to drag the page to the screen. I tried it with an old computer and it worked perfectly that was because It replaced the monitor which is not possible with a laptop. can anybody help or can anybody tell me if it just doesnt work with a laptop.

    Many thanks.

    Hello,

    Are you using a DOCK or just plugging the VGA cable from the monitor to the laptop ?
    Also have you tried changing the resolution on your laptop to see if it works at a particular resolution ?

    thanks for the quick reply. My friend downloaded an appllication called'UltraMon' which mirrored the laptop screen onto the external monitor. http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/. My laptop is an IQON and prob. may not have worked with Dell 8200!!! my friend was'nt willing to try. thanks again
