Question about Computers & Internet
The computer will only see either one monitor or the splitter itself as the monitor, it won't recognize them separately or be able to put different data onto each (if indeed it is a true "splitter")
It's like the output from a satellite receiver. Just because you put a cable splitter on it so that you can have 2 TV's hooked up, both will be on whatever single output is coming out of the receiver, it doesn't let you watch 2 different shows, one on each screen. You'd need another receiver for that.
Likewise, if you want to see 2 monitors on the computer, there has to be 2 separate video outputs (some cards provide more than 1 output, but since you got a splitter, I am assuming this isn't the case for you).
