Thank you.Now I don't have to wonder in the back of my mind if I should try to do that.I don't like playing around with the bios.I think maybe laptops that want to use a crt monitor might have such a function or is that uneccessary also.

Not necessary at all

Not necessary at all. CRT, LCD, or probably anything that may come out in the future. At least on this subject, your friend is full of it and shouldn't be listened to. Probably goes for anything tech related, but we'll leave open the possibility that you are simply remembering things incorrectly, and your friend actually said something else.
