Connect both monitors to their respective I/O ports on your gpu. Power up your system, wait for it to boot. Then open W7 control panel. Select 'Apperance and Personalization'. Select 'Display'. Select 'Screen Resolution' You should now see both monitors in the display, if not, click 'Detect'. Under the picture of your monitors will be 4 drop down boxes marked 'Display', 'Resolution', 'Orientation', and 'Multiple displays'. Assuming your primary monitor is already configured. Use 'Display' dropdown menu and select your 2nd monitor. Under 'Resolution' use the drop down to select the monitors native resolution. Check it's orientation is correct and then under the 'Multiple display' drop down, select 'Extend these displays'. Click 'Apply' and you should be good to go. Hope this helps, good luck.
