      there should be a external display port on the laptop either side or back.
      then you need to change the display (usually function & F5). In this case you would probably need to go into extended desktop. Not sure if all laptops support extended desktop though.

      good luck

      Unless you have a Mac with dual DVI it is highly unlikely you can do this.

      Could you use the HDMI slot for anohter monitor? Worth a shot anyway.
