    I was wondering if it's possible to set up a separate screen (if I buy a separate monitor) from my laptop. So I would have my laptop doing a couple things, and my monitor doing other things. I own an Acer laptop, if that's any help. Would I need to buy a new graphics card or something? Any help/useful links/etc would be greatly appreciated, I'm sure a bunch of you have done something like this..

    Cheers.

    Including your laptop specs would help a lot more.

    Almost all laptops comes with a monitor port within it itself. Check the right side of your laptop, that thing usually is on the right side.

    You can simply connect your monitor to the port, and assign whether to extend the display, or to duplicate the display or to turn off laptop display and use monitor alone.

    And, its not like you can let your laptop do something and monitor do something else. Its probably like, let laptop screen shows something, and let the monitor show something else. I know what you meant though. Just thought I would say this.
