Try right-clicking on your desktop, and going to the Properties tab. You should see two monitors in the picture, one of them will be greyed out. Click it, and click the check box that reads "Extend my desktop onto this monitor." Then set your resolution and color depth and apply the changes. You should see a picture on the monitor.

If you don't see a second monitor on the page, the drivers may need to be reinstalled.

When you run multiple monitors in "extend" mode you will only get the icons and the "Start" button on one monitor. All it does is spread your desktop across both monitors.

GeForce 9400 gt, black screen problem


It looks like your graphics card changes the screen resolutions and/or refresh-rate to something beyond your monitor's capabilities.

After installing the drivers and the screen goes black, restart you're computer and press F8 to get the Windows advanced menu boot and choose "Enable VGA Mode".

When booted into Windows, right click on the desktop and select "properties", select the tab "Settings" and pick a really low resolution like "1024x768" and press the "Apply" button (but don't reboot yet when asked to). Next press the "Advanced" button, then select the tab "monitor" and change the monitor resolution to "default" or 60Hz.

Now restart your system and see wether Windows will boot normally. If so, you can change the resolution and refresh-rate back to you preferred values. Whenever you pick a too high resolution or refreshrate the screen will turn black again, but don't worry, don't press anything and just wait 15s, after which Windows will roll back to the previous setting ...

Multiple display problem


Hello. Your driver software was 71.6MB large. It not only included the driver software but secondary software for you to control & setup dual monitors. The package came with a HDMI connector which is used to connect the HDMI femal port to VGA port, if the monitor does not have a HDMI male port. Currently the reason you can not see your display is because the signal comming out of the video card is set to the other port on the card. Once you switch to the other port you'll have display on your monitor. Open control panel, than open display. Display Properties will open on your desktop. Click settings than click advanced. You should see another tab that reads something like, NVIDIA® nView Multi-Display Technology. (I'm guessing because I only use ATI's software) I can't load your driver software on my current system. The two cards may be different but the software is similar. This Nvidia tab is where you set up your monitor or monitors. Once in this advanced portion for your video card you can set which connector from the video card will display on what monitor. There will also be a ton of settings you can adjust, from color to 3D & other options. You must have an icon by your clock as well that allows you to open the standard display properties or the advanced display properties.

Dual Monitor


To arrange multiple monitors
This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.
  1. Open shortcutcold.gifDisplay in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.

Switch to alternate 2 computers and dual monitors


What you probably want is a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch that supports dual monitors. It's a simple device that allows you to plug multiple computers into one set of monitors, keyboard, and mouse and switch between controlling them.

I don't know of any that support mixing analog and digital connections for the monitors, but using a VGA to DVI adapter for one of the monitors should solve that problem cheaply.
