I want to get 2 screens on my comp but >I have completely no idea how to do this...

My hardware is:

MSI Radeon 9250
I have a plug & play 17" monitor on the card entrance

Now my screen settings state that I can have a second screen attached to my comp but I have no idea how to attach this screen... It doesn't even have to be a big screen :S

Question list:
Which port should i use?
are there any USB screens?
Is it possible to play WoW on the 17" and run MSN on the other?
Do I need to buy something special? If so how much will it most prolly cost (in € if possible otherwise I have to calculate :tazz:)

assuming you have 2 monitors, and a video port on your mobo as well as one on your vid card. Most radeon cards support dualview, so it should work. right click your desktop, and go to properties. click display- if you see both monitors, select the other one and click extend windows to both. i use 2 flatscreens, and i stretch windows out over both of them, works well.

My problem is with what is called Dualview.

I want to have both monitors reflect exactly the same information. I am using a laptop and have a new Sony monitor. I can move icons etc. to the Sony but cannot have the application software open on the Sony. HELP refers to this 2 screen approach as Dualview and seems to indicate that laptops can only support it with certain computer display adpaters - either [b]S3 Savage MX or Trident 3D, Trident XP

Do I need to install one of these adapters on my laptop? How do I go about doing that? Can I do it myself?

Thank you
