any help appreciated
i have c pc with 2 ports for monitors i am using the dvi ouput to my plasma
tv (through a dvi to 15 pin converter) which works fine. however i cant seem
to get my other 15 point outlet to work.

I am assuming i have to activate some sort of dual monitor software? I am
using xp

    Does your video support output on both at the same time?

    Right-click the desktop and go to properties. then go to settings. you
    should have a picture thingy of two monitors. click on the second monitor
    (one with the 2) and click the checkbox underneath that says extend my
    windows desktop onto this monitor (or something like that)

    Thks for the easy question
