Hello,
I have connected my external monitor succesfully to my laptop. I can work with the 2 screens, pulling documents across from laptop to external monitor and back. However, I sometimes would like to display the SAME image on the 2 screen, and have failed to do so by using a combination of the fn-key and the f4-key. The image will just switch from one screen to the other, leaving the first one blank.
What can I do??
Thanks, Klavs Dahl Christensen

You probably have a laptop with either an Intel or Nvidia video chip. Either of these should have an Icon in "Control Panel" that should allow you to "clone" (ie copy) the laptop screen to the external monitor.

Good Luck
