    My friend has a laptop and wants to use the CRT she has attached to
    her laptop
    as the defalt monitor. I have never
    owned a laptop a don't know how to help her. If some can help me I
    would greatly appreciate it.

    It may be like hooking up a projector, which is really just a type of
    monitor. I think F12 comes into play to turn off the laptop's monitor, but
    it's been a while since I've done it. Just plug in the monitor into the port
    on the back of the laptop...I guess she's done this part already, right?

    Yes she has. She can't use adobe gamma for the CRT. XP Pro is on the Computer.
    I think the CRT is a ViewSonic P Series. I have no problem with changing
    monitors on my system but it's not a laptop.

    I remember when I was using a projector during visits to local high schools
    representing a local community college, I had to make sure the resolution
    was set to 800 by 600 or I would get a weird line across the projection
    image. But with a regular monitor, I'm sure the resolution capabilities are
    far superior. I could leave the laptop monitor on or I could press one of
    the function keys, F12 I think, to turn off the laptop screen and use only
    the projector. The projector plugged into the same VGA port that a monitor
    would. So what exactly is she having a problem with?
