    I have a LCD TV hooked up to a PC, it works as its screen. About 20 feet from it is where I sit and use a laptop. My question is: is there a way to see the PC simultaneously on TV and a laptop? Thanks for any help.

    It would depend on the laptops graphic card & it's software & if you have a port at the rear of the laptop as to whether you can get dual monitor or not,the laptop specs from the manufacturer should tell you this,it maybe necessary to enable dual monitors from the graphic card software or you'll only get the laptop screen as default,if you see the option of two monitors or a monitor & tv you should be good to go,only real way to find out is do it already
