I found if I right click on the display boxes 1 or 2 in the settings of the display properties, it gives me the option to make either one the primary display.
I made 2 the primary display and after restarting I had clone monitors, I put the DVD in and this time when I clicked play it opened my media player and of course the movie wouldn't play.
The function key plus F7 switched the displays back and forth.
The computer has 2 Mobile Intel® 945GM Express Chipset Family Display adapters. I have no idea what that means, I am new to this stuff.
I am learning a little more about it the more I play with it but I think the problem has something to do with this being a laptop.
After changing the settings back to extended desktop, I tried the DVD again and now it opens the media player when it didn't do that before and wont play.
I only have this one movie DVD so I can't try a different one now. By the way, this movie has a Sony program to play it.
