I have a Dell desktop computer and monitor alongside the laptop. There is a 2nd monitor cable on the Dell monitor which has never been in use. The plug on this cable fits into the back of the laptop so I just plugged it in. This causes the Dell monitor to go into "sleep mode". When I unplug from the laptop the monitor then works fine on the desktop machine. So, my question is......how do I get this remote monitor to work with the laptop and override the laptop monitor?
