I am having a MSi laptop running with Windows XP Pro, recently upgraded it to SP2. I also have desktop at my home whos HDD is sent for repairing, hence I though use its monitor with my laptop as Dual Monitor using Extended Desktop feature. But as soon as click on the check for Extended Desktop I suddenly receive a Blue Screen with following message:
STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xBF9377A3, 0xA8B1F8Fc, 0x00000000)
win32k.sys - Address BF9377A3 base at BF8000001, Datestamp 48ce5235
I did some research for the fix and found somewhere that recreating the pagefile can fix this problem. I tried the same but that worked for few seconds as dual monitor, and again I got the BSOD. For more troubleshooting I renamed the win32k.sys file and let Windows recreate it, also run Windows Updates, no success. Hence I deleted all monitors and display adapters from Device Manager. Next time when I booted my system I saw system reinstalling all correct monitors(drivers automatically.
Anyone know why I was not able to do dual monitor setup ? Any help ?
