Displaying one program on computer screen and another on a TV screen

    "Low end" desktop computer (perhaps a Dell Inspiron 560 or 580) is running
    64-bit Windows with integrated graphics (Intel GMA X4500) with the computer
    monitor connected to the VGA port and a television connected to the HDMI

    The desire is to display one running program on the normal computer screen
    while displaying another running program on the television screen.


    1. Can I have two programs running and have one displayed on the computer
    monitor and one displayed on the television screen using the integrated

    2. If so, can I change to have the same program displayed on BOTH screens?

    3. If not, does it take a different (more advanced) separate graphics card
    to be installed to be able to do this? What would be a fairly inexpensive
    graphics card that would allow this to be done?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance,

    Bud H
