OK, whats happening is after i connect up the second monitor via VGA, (primary monitor is DVI)all tutorial's say go to display settings and alter from there where it should have a picture of two monitors, one with a number 1 and the other with a number 2.

if you look at the attachment you will see what i mean by i don't get given that choice, is there a patch or something i may download to rectify this problem? I'm running Windows XP Pro' version 2002, service pack 3. if that is any help at all.

You should be able to access that option by either:

-Pressing Ctrl Alt F12 keys simultaneously
-Right-clicking the Windows* desktop and selecting Graphics Properties
-Opening Windows* Display Control Panel and selecting Settings > Advanced > Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator Driver for Mobile > Graphics Properties


Hope this helps

Hello Danny O'Rourke,

Is there any chance that you can go to your device manager and take a look in the Monitors section.

Start > Run > then type the following and press enter:

devmgmt.msc

Expand the arrow next to monitors and tell me if you see 2 devices listed under it.

Hmm. Now the question is what happens when you Right-Click on that entry? Is there any option to enable or anything else like that?

yes, i have enabled it but it still only gives me an option to have a dual clone screen as the first attachment showed, the next few attachments are the other options i can access that i have found.
