How do I enable multiple monitors?

I.b.m. / Thinkpad 770z

Specs: Windows 2000, PII 366Mhz 192Mb
I have multiple monitors selected in the bios, and control panel/display/settings says multiple monitors are connected, but only one monitor is shown and the same thing is displayed on both. How do I convince it that it has a second monitor?

Windows ME *is* displaying a different picture on each monitor, so it's not a hardware problem.

In order to fix this problem just follow some simple steps;-


Step 1.Check before if Graphics Card Supports Two Monitor/Multiple monitors

Step2.After the cable connection of both, Monitor setup is Finish,Go to Display setting> Change Display Setting >Multiple Display Where you will have the two monitor connected.There you can see the Dropdown Box in Multiple Display,display1 ,display 2,Extend two Display.
Select Extend 2 Display Monitor.Apply >OK.

It does.

> Finish,

There is no setup. ME recognized the second monitor as soon as I enabled it in the bios.

> Go to Display setting> Change Display Setting

No such option. Are you using windows 2000?

> >Multiple Display

No such setting anywhere.

> Where you will have the two monitor connected.

The problem is that it doesn't show two monitors connected - anywhere.

> There you can see the Dropdown Box

There are no drop down boxes in control panel/display.

> in Multiple Display,display1 ,display 2,Extend two Display.
> Select Extend 2 Display Monitor.Apply >OK.

No such options - anywhere.

I downloaded and installed the program to set seperate wallpapers on each momitor. All it did was hijack my computer and connect to the internet without permission (who knows what it uploaded or downloaded while my back was turned) and crash because it didn't have mfc90.dll . Is this hostile software you tried to give me even compatible with 2K?

Install the latest W2000 drivers for the graphics card.
