Dual Monitor on 9800 pro
Hey, i just bought 2 17'' LCD monitor for 60$ each used, im trying to setup the dual monitor on my blue rig and i can have some trouble with the dual screen

the windows bar does not disply on both LCD,

and everything open in the 1st screen while i have to drag and drop in to the 2nd one to make thing display in the 2nd screen

im u sing Omega driver, and one screen is directlyu to the VGa port and the other one is plug into a DVi to VGA adaptor to have the LCD plug via vga

um i think thats normal? I've use dual monitors on my older socket a system for awhile, the task bar was always only on the 1st monitor and windows always start on the first monitor, i drag to 2nd monitor.

Is it different with your other comps? try those.

If you have the option, I think you want horizontal span mode or something along those lines. Then it will basically stretch your desktop across both screens.

yes, as the people above posted, you need to get into horizontal span mode. Right now, you have just checked "extend my desktop to this monitor" button. I use ntune to put it to horizontal, but i do not remember if theres an easier way.

taskbar will only span across two screens using something like Ultramon.
