A vga splitter cannot make them show seperate images.

You will need them on different plugs on the video card.

You'll need a dual head video card. A card with multiple video outputs will give you plenty display options.

I'm not sure where the setting is but you tick a box somewhere that says 'allow directx applications to lock the cursor'

OP if you dont have a dula head video card, here are your options:

1. buy one
2. buy a second video crd
3. enable onboard video and plug into that as well as your add-onn video card (not always possible)
4. graphics expansion module, e.g. dualhead2go
