I want my video card to stop processing an image to my integrated monitor and only process images to my external monitor.

My problem is that I use my Toshiba Satellite M65 (which is a laptop) as a desktop: I use an external monitor, external keyboard, and of course an external mouse. I only recently started using Ubuntu after many years of Windows XP (thank you thank you) and I just realized that both my laptop's integrated monitor and my external monitor are 'on', displaying the same image. I want my video card to stop processing an image to my integrated monitor... Please help!

I figured out how to do change my Monitor preferences.

System > Preferences > Monitors

there I unchecked 'display same image on both monitors' and turned my integrated monitor off.
