I'm trying to set up a dual monitor display, so that I can extend my desktop to the second monitor, but I can't get the second monitor to enable. The system is detecting it, but it won't enable.
I'm running WinXP with a ATI Radeon x300/x550/x1050 card. The two monitors are connected to the same card (one of them with a DVI/VGA adapter).
When I check the display properties, I see:
1. Default Monitor on ATI RADEON x300/x550/x1050 Series
2. (Default Monitor) on ATI RADEON x300/x550/x1050 Series - Secondary.
When I click the secondary monitor, it asks me if I want to enable. I click yes and it acts like it's enabled. I check the little "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" box, click okay, the system thinks about that for a few secs and then greys out the second monitor again.
The same thing happens when I try it through the Catalyst Control Center - it sees the second monitor, allows me to right-click it and click enable, then it greys-out again. The second monitor is showing just a cloned image of the first monitor.
Anyone has some suggestions? Any help would be much appreciated.
