i have two monitors hooked up and when ever i change my backround image it allways puts the same image on both of the screens yet it isnt likethe screens show the same thing cause i can scroll over to the next. Is there any way to set it up so that i can have two different pictures on the different monitors and not just 2 of the same

Just go to display properties, settings, advanced, and configure from there. My friend did it. He has one screen with CS:S on it, and then another with some random 3d pic. He has nvidia though, so advanced is different... but you should be able to configure it through there.
