    I'm having difficulties with connecting my Acer Aspire e-530 (Windows 10 Pro 64bit) to my Linx 1010b (Windows 10 Home 32bit)! I want that Linx would be as a second monitor! But sadly devices don't see each other! Cable is fine, because I could connect tablet to TV also I can connect laptop to TV! Could it be because laptop is 64bit?
    Any ideas?

    I don't think you can do what you're after - you can connect a tablet or laptop to a TV to use as an external monitor, but it doesn't work the other way around (i.e. the tablet can't act as a display).
