First I would make sure the video out on your PC is working correctly. The best way to do this is by hooking your PC up to a different monitor to see if the second monitor operates correctly. If it does not then possibly you may have an issue with your video card. If you are interfacing to a laptop, make certain that you have the video out configured to output to an external monitor. This can be achieved through your computers control panel.
I also had a similar issue with one of my ViewSonic monitors and resolved it by completely unplugging the monitor from my PC and also for the electrical outlet. I let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes, hooked everything back up, restarted the computer and it corrected itself.
Hope this helps
If I understand You are using a Monitor connecting the Monitor...
and the background is shared byboth the display however the Cursor stays only on one of them at a time.However it can be toggled among the 2.
then this Feature is called the Extended Display.
Use the same Key Combination that you would use for external Display one More time and it should Work.
1. It could be limitation of your video card. Older cards would not support high resolution for LCD monitors.
2. Be sure to use DVI(digital) output from your video card. You will not get a good resolution with VGA(analog)
3. When installing driver for a monitor sometimes you will get a chose to install analog(VGA) or digital(DVI) driver. Choose the correct driver.
Seeing the word "analog" on your screen means the monitor has recognized video input on the vga "analog" input connection. Most computers output "analog" vga (15 pin) which must be converted to digital for a flat panel monitor to display the image. Many LCDs now have both analog and digital inputs.
I had a Gateway 19" TFT that did the same thing.
Does the power light stay on? If so, you more than likely have "dry" solder joints at the inverters. Take it apart & shoot a little solder on the inverter solder joints. Good as new now. The solder joints dry out because of the high heat generated. This is a very common problem.
