Well, I just bought myself a nice-low end computer to do my homework on. I find dual monitors assist me in this greatly.

The tech at the store (not a Best Buy type of store, more of a build it yourself kind of store) said that the ATI Radeon 9250 Sapphire would handle dual monitors if I used a DVI to VGA adaptor.

However, I installed it and I cannot get it to display my desktop accross 2 monitors, just the one plugged into the VGA port, not the DVI port.

Relevant info:

128MB ATI Radeon 9250 Sapphire
Asus P4VP-MX-UAYZ motherboard with integrated video

When I go into device manager, all I see is the ati card in display adaptors and in the bios I have no idea what I'm looking for.

................hope that's enough information
