Okay - I'm having an issue with trying to configure two LCD monitors to run as an Extended Desktop display. Here's the situation:
You can see from my GPUs (HIS H687F1G2M Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-bit) that each one has one HDMI port, two mini display ports, and two DVI (1 single link, 1 dual link), ports.
My monitors: Main: HP w2338h Wide LCD Monitor. Second: Dell 1908WFP(Digital).
The HP monitor has two input ports: One analog VGA, and one HDMI.
The Dell monitor has two input ports: One analog VGA, and one DVI-D.
It does not matter how I configure the cabling on these monitors. There are only two ways that I can get both to actually display at the same time. One, I select "Extend these displays" from the "Multiple displays" dropdown in Control Panel>Display>Screen Resolution. However, this does not actually extend the desktop. The only function that it has is to display my desktop wallpaper. I'm unable to move anything from one monitor to the other. Two, I select "Duplicate these displays" from the same dropdown menu. While this displays working windows on both monitors, it's kind of pointless to me to be running the same tasks in two monitors. The whole point is trying to expand my work area.
I'm currently using the VGA input on the HP monitor, and the DVI-D input on the Dell.
Can anyone help with this?
