nothing has happned there is still just one monitor when it shows it in display options. I dont know anything else that could be wrong. Cause i wouldnt think that there is some compatibleity problem. Do i need to install like a program to do it or something?

NO, you shouldn't have to. Right click on your desktop, go to properties, click on the display tab, click on the square "2" box and then check "extend my desktop". It should work just like that. You have enable it the monitor too.

yea i know that but it doesnt show up with the two monitors it still only has the one. it just has the basic one monitor showing the resolution size. It is probly something so simple if i dont need to install something. All the forums i have read say the same thing.
