    My daughter brought down her H/P laptop and wants to have me show her
    how to edit some photographs. I'd like to connect my Samsung
    SyncMaster 2253lw to the laptop and view on that screen, but I can't
    get it to display.

    I plugged my screen into the H/P and went to Control
    Panel>Display>Settings> and tried to figure out how to view on the
    secondary screen, but I can't figure it out.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks. I'll try that tomorrow. She took the laptop and is visiting
    with friends tonight.
    Wouldn't know where to find it. I don't own a laptop.

    You wouldn't know how to go to the manufacturers site and read/download
    the docs? How fucking stupid are you?

    I figured if I posted the question here that you would read it and go
    out of your way to reply with helpful instructions as you usually do.
    I consider you to be my own personal help desk, Voivod.

    Thanks for playing.

    No way. Never.
    Just got through hooking it up. Works fine. It was a frustrating
    experience, though, because I expected a *second* view of what I was
    seeing on the laptop. Not so. What I was seeing was an *extension*
    of what was on the laptop's screen. Once I figured out that I needed
    to grab the image on the laptop screen and move it into place on the
    larger monitor, it all came together. Now I have the image
    (photograph) filling the large monitor screen and the palettes on the
    laptop screen.
