Acer Aspire one 10.1 and HP 2009m LCD! Help!

by alejandrofutbol9 / June 16, 2009 2:07 PM PDT

Hey Guys. So, I bought the HP 2009m LCD to use as my external monitor. Plugged everything in, put in the settings for each screen and everything works great. However, I wanted to take it a step further. I decided that I wanted to use my laptop as a second monitor (extend my desktop). So here lies my question. The acer's highest resolution is I believe 1024 x 680 but the HP 2009m's resolution can be A LOT higher than that. Therefore, I was wondering if I can use both monitors (as extended desktop) and still keep the highest resolution for each. Is this possible or do they both need to be set to the same resolution? Any insight will be tremendously appreciated guys!!
Thanks very much!

Generally not

Generally not, unless the laptop has two separate RAMDACs for the video processing unit, which is extremely unlikely.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
