1600 x 900 on laptop.  I want to split the monitor into two workspaces like a dual monitor setup.  Is there a way in Vista to do this?  Laptop is DV7 with 512mb ATI video card.

    You simply need to plug it into the either DVI output or VGA output that you have on your laptop. than go to the display setting the enable the secondary screen and set it to "extend".

    Let me know if you need more details. ^^

    oh you mean with in the one LCD .... no I don't think that would be possible. The only solution to that would be actually running 2 virtual PCs.

    Screen will always work as one single work space.
