Re: Dual Display Problem
It should work.
With the ATI drivers though, make sure that the full suite in the drivers is installed, that allows you to change a very wide array of settings.
The ATI settings for Dual Monitor support if I'm right is very good, and shouldn't be hard to set up from there.
I found this that may help:
"Step 1. Install video card(s)
Most likely its already in your pc so this is easy or done already.
Step 2. Hook up your monitors to the video card.
Note: most ati and nvidia video cards have a rgb output and dvi output. If both of your monitors use rgb (standard monitor cable), you'll need a dvi-to-rgb adapter.
Step 3. Setting Up Windows for Multiple monitors
Usually when you hook up two monitors, they go into Clone Mode, meaning they both show the same thing.
However, you can change that in your Display Properties > Settings part
It should show two monitors after you've hooked them up.
Click on the Greyed monitor (prob number 2), and click the box
Extend my Windows Desktop onto this Monitor and click apply.
Hopefully the second monitor will come alive with its own desktop.
You will want to adjust the resolution and all to fit that monitors settings.
Once you do your good to go!
-in the Display Properties > Setttings menu
you can move the monitors to how they are aligned (ie if you have at the same level or if one is higher up than the other) When you do this, hopefully when you move your mouse to the other screen it will show up where you think it would
-Most 3D games will only be played on the Primary monitor.
Dvds and videos however can be viewed on either monitor (this depends more on your video card and if the secondary monitors/outputs can handle 3d overlays or not) "
After your sure thats right, the actual video cards settings should have more options for defining how it works more, and what reosloutions/frequency each monitor is running at.
