Re: Installing a second monitor to my laptop

Hi,

 

Do you mean second external monitor or just second/external monitor ? What is your machine, ít's very hard to impossible to install/replace video card on laptops.

 

Regards.

Re: Installing a second monitor to my laptop

I have a HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop and I want to install an external monitor to help me in my daytrading.  I wanted to know if it is possible to do it or should I just buy another computer set up with dual monitors.  Thank you.

Hi,

 

Normally yes (I don't know exactly the model of your machine, dv9000 series has many models). Hope this helps:
