on your pc do you have two vga out puts?
you mentioned movie on tv, are your trying to display your tv over the monitor?
can you rate your technical ability on a scale of 1-10 (1 being low and 10 being high)

Nice attitude for someone asking help...

Normally I wouldn't care answering, noticing this kind of arrogant attitude, but here's a short answer:

If your computer has only one display output, it's not going to work. If you can connect two displays at the same time directly to your computer (I mean directly, not splitting one output to two cables) then the answer is yes, you can do it. this requires either two VGA outputs that can be used at the same time, or one VGA and one DVI or HDMI output, or two DVI/HDMI outputs.

An example is my own system. At the moment I'm watching television using Windows Media Center which is running on my display #2 (plasma-TV), connected to the computer with an HDMI cable, and typing this in a browser on display #1, connected to my computer with a VGA cable.

I asked three questions all relevant to the final answer.

I needed to know how many vga ports your computer had so I could tell you if you can use two monitors.

I needed to know about the tv thing, cause steps would vary dependent on if it was via tv, internet, or on your computer.

I needed to know your technical ability, to know on what level I should walk you through the steps.

I guess I dont have to ask what your personality is cause you made it quite clear its a zero.
