Duel Monitor Problem

Okay so I recently wanted to "upgrade" my home computer experience by attaching two monitors to my one cpu.
Awesome right?
No, not really.
Ive hooked everything up perfectly and im unable to get the two monitors "option".
Ive heard that you need two computer "screens" in the display settings area of the control panel to be able to operate two monitors, but im unable to get even that.
When my computer boots up, both monitors work. But when the "welcome" screen appears, one monitor goes blank or black.
Im running Windows XP Home edition, a Radeon X1600 Pro vid card, and two monitors that are exactly the same.
Please help!

    Thats awesome. Thank you. Although the problem remains that I dont think the thing is reading the monitors.
    It doesnt show the two monitors or the options in that "how to" link that you posted under the catalyst control center.
    It only has the options to stretch it horizontally, vertically, or to clone main to tv.

    I boot up, and the boot screen shows on both screens.
    That means in general, that my graphics card can handle TWO screens.
    But, when the welcome screen shows, one screen goes black.
    Does the back of my graphics card (where you hook everything into.. plug, screw, etc), have to have the two white hookups?
    Right now it only has one white and then the regular blue hookup.

First thing first ensure that you have the latest ATI radeon X1600 pro driver and software installed else you won't be able to get the desired options for dual display under settings coz it will be working with generic drivers.

My hp 1502 lcd monitor only shows a white screen


If you don't use an identical monitors, then they may not work if your video card can not handle them. The "check video cable" it means the monitor does not get a signal, and it does not mean that the monitor is a problematic monitor. You can test this monitor as a single monitor (and try to connect it using first video port, and then move it to the second video port).

Try a different CRT monitor on your computer.
Try your CRT monitor on a different computer.
See if the problem "moves" to the other computer,
or whether your computer has problems with *ANY* monitor.

- You can test the monitor by using another CPU, if still the same then the problem is monitor, but if it's working well then the problem is your CPU, to make it sure then you can try another monitor on your CPU. - check if the hardware connection is well attach, you can pull & re- plug the hardware just to make sure. - the monitor is need a DVI connection (white or gray) to run properly, if you use AGP connection ( blue ) on your VGA card that might the problem, so you can also try upgrade your VGA card. - other ways is to install the latest driver for your VGA card.

My screen has shrunk, there is a black frame around it that i cant get rid of. Iv tried changing the resolution and re-starting my computer nothong has helped


Use the OSD (On Screen Display) controls on your monitor to change the "vertical-size' and "horizontal-size" of your picture.

Then, try a different monitor, to see if your monitor is the problem, or if your video-card is the problem.

Monitor shuts off of the computer then stays on then goes off .


Does it shut off with absolutely no warning sounds whatsoever?

Do you ever hear a faint PC beeper alarm that kinda sounds like a ambulance siren (you know... kinda like a WEEEE. ORRRRR... WEEEE... ORRRR)

My main suspect at this stage is OVERTEMP (you are overheating the CPU).

Possible Causes: Recently UPGRADED components (especially VIDEO)

Build up of dust in Case and CPU heatsink and GPU heatsink or CPU fan has failed or one or some case fans have failed.

Do you know how to check your CPU temp in BIOS? If it happens again check it out.... greater than 90 degrees is usually bad.

Check all your fans are spinning, check you don't have 'caked up' dust on your heatsinks.

If you have recently upgraded a major component that is dumping heat into you case... investigate a new case fan to extract this heat (cheapest option) or you may want to pick up an aftermarket CPU heatsink and fan (Thermalright FTW!!!!!!!)
