Connect laptop to external screen - divi/USB digital
I have a Sony Vaio laptop and a Dell Dimennsion 8400 PC.
The sony runs Vista and Office 2007 the Dell XP and 2003 and I want to switch between them easily from one screen (the large one currently connected to the Dell). I am using the Sony as the main PC at the moment with all the files on the Dell.
However in order to use teh large screen, I have to use remote desktop on the Dell to connect to the laptop.
This works fine however I would rather do it the other way around - vaio to Dell via remote desktop. However I can't get the vaio to connect the screen (Dell LCD 17") except via a VGA connection which looks terrible.
I tried connecting the screen via the USB connection (there is no Divi conection on the laptop) but I can't get this to work and it look from the options on the Viao that the only choice of external screen is VGA.
Any ideas? I don't mind buying a widget if there is one.
