    Hi, I have a customer who has a gfx card with dual dvi output that plugs into some spider presentation screens. He also wants to be able to view the screen on his laptop through a standard vga port. Is it possible to fit another card or adapter to get another output? how would this be best achieved? Many thanks,

    All he would really need is a cheap PCI graphics card (NV5200PCI), and if you can't get Windows to triple view, you need Ultramon.

    The main problem he will face is that most laptops don't have VGA-in only out. Thus he will need some sort of input card for his laptop. The only way I can think of doing it would be s-video out from PCI card and then s-video in on a USB TV card. There probably is a USB/PCMCIA vga input card but I don't know of one.
