BC help please!! - couple of questions regarding a dual monitor setup..
1) do i need 2 video cards for a dual monitor setup?
2) i heard there was an adapter that connects 1 video card to 2 monitors?
Probably, but you really should have a video card with a dual monitor output.
3) if i have a pci video card as well as a motherboard video card can i plug the 2 seperate monitors into each of these or is that not going to work?
4)once everything is setup, in windows what is the procedure for splitting the screens so they scroll from 1 screen to the other.
I believe that does work...but can be tricky (depending on the computer) getting both monitors seen. Once both monitors are setup, when you right click the desktop and choose properties, then over to the "Settings" tab, you should see two monitors listed...then you right-click the number "2" monitor and select "attached."
Also make sure the checkbox below that area "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" is checked.
(Someone else may have better answers for you.)
