can't run the feature "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"
the only option i get is
1. only use one display
2. the same on both displays
3. as one large horizontal desktop
4. as one large vertical desktop

I am using a 9500gt one LCD 24 inch and one 17 inch CRT

any reason why it is not working? I remember it working when I had a 8500gt

What happens if you select either option 3 or 4? To me, it sounds like those options would do the same thing.

3 and 4 only expands both monitors to one resolution. what I want it like two different work spaces.

Problem fixed. I had to reinstall the drivers over again with both monitors connected to the video card in order to work. When I first installed the drivers I only had one monitor connected so it didn't work. I don't know why dumb drivers. The option is called

Configured independently from each other (Dualview)
