    Dual Monitor

    I just set-up dual monitor, just wanted to let you people know and ask if anybody or if you know of any problems that may occur to my motherborad, videocard or power supply by doing this. I have windows xp, A GeForce 2 MX 400 video card, my primary monitor is connected to the GeForce, the secondary monitor goes through the normal monitor input.

    I don't see how you'd cause problems... unless you aren't using the correct drivers.

    I had dual monitors setup at one time... but it sucked.
    One was 17 and one was 15, so it was quite annoying.

    I'll just wait till I can get dual 32" plasma screens...
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    same here, on the 15inch i just put programs like winamp, buddy list and some other stuff i look at sometimes.

    ScriptKiddie the 15 monitor is connected to the normal adapter i got with the computer, the 17inch is connected to the GeForce.

    hey phishphreek did your taskbar extend to the next monitor?

    I believe so. Its been a while. But I remember having to look to the other screen for time and such.

    At least m$ is finally going to have multiple virtual desktops (in their next OS), so you don't have to do this... similar to how the various GUIs for *nix work.

    Maybe because you bought your computer with a graphic card. I bought mine later.
