Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate, 3.2 GHz / 4094 MB

Greetings Computing.Net,

I recently received two SyncMaster 213T monitors from my good friend, whom I helped pick out two newer monitors for his new home office computer set up. Anyways, the monitors he gave me work great and give my computer a whole new awsome perspective.

The monitors are connected to my EVGA GTX 550 Ti; one via VGA (with a converter) and the other through DVI. They work exceptionally when it comes to office work, research, multitasking etc. However, using them for those purposes is not my original desire. My intention with the monitors is to play pc games being able to visualize it in both screens. I have tryed installing different versions of SoftTH to play Skyrim but have seen no any results.

How can I play Skyrim with dual monitor visual?

Specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 O.C. @ 3.2GHz
4GB DDR2 RAM (brand unknown)
EVGA GTX 550Ti FPB 1GB DDR5
Gigabyte G31M (mobo)
500W PWS
23" SyncMaster 213T X2 (Dual Extended Display with 1600x1200 resolution in each)

YOLO

Hi,

I asume both monitors work on that card.
Usually a graphics controller application is installed on your computer.
Is the current configuration set to clone the main screen?
In the graphics properties, check the configuration.
There will be option called multiple displays, and there you have to select option, mirror or clone display.

Assumption is the mother of all f*ck-ups.

✔ Best Answer

It's a game setting issue, not a windows issue. I saw this discussed in another forum & one responder made an interesting comment - "the crosshair will be in the bezel of the screens". These links should set you on the right path:
