Multiple monitor problem

I am running windows xp home edition with a nvidia gforce4 mx440 vid card which came with computer (dell). I am trying to run 2 monitors as I do on my laptop, but the settings window is only showing one monitor and no option to extend.
Card has a svideo on it too. Should I not be able to hookup a tv monitor through the svideo and use as a 2nd monitor as my laptop does??? Thanks for your help

1: First check wether your graphics card is able to support 2 monitors. Not all built-in ones can do that.
2: If you re sure it should be able to work, try restarting the pc after you connect the monitor, it should open a popup and ask what you want to do.
3: If not try updating your drivers and repeat step 2.

As for the tv as a monitor, most digital tv's are able to do that, yes.

I hope this helps,
Yannick

I have a Dell XPS M1710 laptop that was originally Windows XP (maybe Media Center Edition, I'm not sure) and had Windows 7 Ultimate on it. I had to wipe the hard drive and I downgraded to Windows


Hello the driver can be downloaded here:

http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/Product/xps-m1710

Or here at nvidia:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_notebook_winxp_179.48_beta.html

Please check for other drivers missing in the device manager.
Check also for the right driver, because here is 2 different ones.

Try the nvidia page first, this should work for you.

Good luck

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

I don't see how this can be a problem with your monitor. Your monitor is simply showing what is happening with your computer. I think the nvidea driver is probably at fault. Pls update with the latest version for your operating system.
