Hi,
I want to add extra monitor to my Laptop.

Each monitor will show another OS system or another windows user.
Is there a any program for this?

can you just use the extended option in the properties of your graphics card and then drag the virtual machine on that monitor?

It's possible for you laptop to show another Operating System on your laptop using a Hypervisor

you could use VMware Player (download for free)

http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

or Virtualbox (download for free)

http://www.virtualbox.org/

You can download and install these applications, and run a completey different operating system inside.

When you've attached a monitor to your laptop, using Extended Graphics Options, you can show a different Window on each monitor if you wanted. I run four monitors with different operating systems on each!

You can switch users, and another user could login via Remote Desktop.

Just make sure you Desktop computer has enough memory and CPU.

if you could tell us what you are trying to achieve we could advise you on the best solution. VMware player and other similar software is for free and it will allow to create a separate partition/s with a new or more than one operating systems.
