I was wondering if anybody could help me out in setting up dual monitors on my system. I've been trying to set it up using a GeForce4 MX 4000 and the integrated Intel Extreme graphics. The system recognizes both monitors but the displays are a bit off. Mainly the monitor on the integrated graphics shows the icons and the wallpaper covers the entire screen and the monitor hooked up to the MX 4000 shows a small box in the center of the monitor that has the wallpaper and the taskbar on the bottom of the screen. Also the mouse only seems to move on the monitor thats hooked up to the integrated graphics. Any help on getting this set up and working correctly would be greatly appreciated.

Minimize all your open windows, and right click on the desktop. When the menu shows, select "properites" to open the display controls. Click on the tab "Settings" and click on your second monitor. Then there should be a check box that says "Extend my desktop onto this monitor". Make sure that is checked and click apply at the bottom.
