I have a Bosto Kingtee 24m and when I connect it to my laptop i cant get them to display two different screens. when i have a regular monitor connected to my laptop I can get each screen to display different information. How can i get my laptop screen to display something different from my graphics tablet? Thanks all help will be appreciated.

never having owned or used such a device as far as i'm aware you can't use it like a monitor.


the display signal only goes one way from the tablet to the pc/laptop and not the other way, because it is an input device like a mouse or keyboard and not made to receive any display signals sent from the laptop.


to display anything different the display signal would need to travel from the pc/laptop to the tablet like it does when a monitor is connected.


so a monitor is made to only receive display signals and why you can use a 2nd monitor to display a separate picture sent from the pc/laptop along with the picture it sends to it's usual display.


hope that makes sense. :D
