T60P external monitor problem, setup external monitor as main and laptop screen as # 2 Vista 32bit

2009-02-23, 14:01 PM

I have spent hours trying to work this out to no avail.

 

I have a T60P with a  ATI Mobility FIREGL V5250 video card

 

External screen is Viewsonic VG2230WM

 

What i am trying to do is make the viewsonic my MAIN screen and then the laptop screen as #2 the extended screen.

 

I currently have it working in reverse however the options in the display settings are greyed out to enable me to make the viewsonic the main screen

 

Any help would be much appreciated, I found quite a few posts about this but no solutions.

 

Marc

This isnt a complete solution but it helps... you can just drag your taskbar onto the external monitor screen.

You should be able to use Presentation Director to create a scheme to accomplish this.
