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

Discussion in 'Windows XP' started by Bud H, Mar 21, 2010.

    "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
    port.

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

    QUESTIONS

    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
    graphics?


    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
