hey everyone,

i just purchased a new monitor and hooked it up to my laptop (sony vaio cr25). in the display settings of windows vista i then configured the resolution and so on of my extended monitor. however, id like it to be my "main monitor", thus have all my files and task bar on that one. the problem is the checkbox for "This is my main monitor" is gray - i can't select it.

now im kinda stuck and dont know what to do. can anyone help me out here? thaks a lot :)

Monitor 1 is my laptop, and as you can see it is my monitor. i can't select anything.

What about the displays tab in the advanced settings? There seems to be some options there.

I don't know if the "video out" on a laptop if configurable to a main monitor.

But if I were to try it, i'd use the software provided by the video card manufacturer.
