I've got a standard VGA-cable running from my (mini)laptop to my BenQ 28", but is it possible that I can ciew the same screen on my 47" LCD-TV as well as on my PC-monitor? Like a clone or something. If so, how do I do it? I've got both DVI and HDMI on my PC-monitor and on my LCD-TV....

With very little info on your lappy, all I can say is go to the video cards/chips control panel, extend the desktop and select clone mode. As long as you can get it connected to the TV and the GPU supports the resolution of the screen, it should do what you want.
