like everything, dual monitors in Vista is more challenging.
I need to load vista on a drive again and put in my desktop.
Till then, try the advice of wheresthetruth.
In theory, "In Theory", you should be able to plug in both monitors and independently adjust both monitors.
One issue "may" be that the second monitor you are adding is only capable of a lower resolution than your other monitor.
To test that theory, move your monitor resolution down to a nice safe "1024X768" and shut down the computer.
Turn on the computer, when it's done booting, go to a clear spot on the desktop and right click.
A drop down menu appears, choose the last option-"Personalize".
A new box appears, the last option is "Display Settings"-double click it.
A new box appears"display settings" showing monitors 1 and 2.
"1" should be your current monitor.
"2" should be your new monitor. Set the resolution and refresh rates idependently of 1.
Apply and ok your way out.
You should now have both monitors working, if not try a reboot,
Let me know how this works for you.
Now the ATS "Dual Monitor" Dancers:
