I plan to connect my laptop to a 22" external monitor. My earlier laptop crashed a few days ago because of the video card problem.

I am not an expert in this, but still would like to know connecting an external monitor( I extend the monitor basically) would cause or load my system, and would it eventually cause any problems because of this?


Nope, you should have no problems with it. My feeling is that your monitor had nothing to do with your old laptop crashing and that it was a hardware fault with your video card. Sending a second signal out should put no load on your system.

    extending a laptop to a second monitor is extremely common these days. – MaQleod Mar 17 '11 at 18:26
