I have a gateway desktop (windows Xp media center 2005). It runs very smooth, I only have a few work programs on it. A dual monitor setup would make life soooo much easier.
I can only ever get one monitor to work at a time!
I show the radon x300 as the video card I'm guessing,
There is an option for a second monitor on the drop down, but, the only other place to plugin the monitor is the upper blue port (the onboard graphics, I believe)
Is there a way to enable that port? So I can extend my desktop?
I've tried my Tv, it works on its own, the original monitor, and the second monitor I bought, all work n their own, but not together,
I thought it would be really easy......
Here is a pic of the back
The setting for the second monitor is there, I have fiddled with it so many times, but nothing,
Only the monitor that is plugged into the bottom ( video card I'm guessing)
What am I missing?
Is there a driver that needs to be updated?
I tried to update the x300 driver, I'm not even sure if I'm doing it right, but well see...,
Do I need some sort of adapter? ( if so, is it under $20).
I could do it out if I had a bit of instruction. Any other info u need I will post , so keep an eye on this question .
Sooooo much appreciated
