Dual-monitor setup using video card and motherboard?
I'm waiting to get another cable so I can plug both my monitors into my video card that has no VGA port. At the moment I'm running Monitor 1 to the video card with a DVI Cable and Monitor 2 to the VGA port on the mobo.
Windows seems to be recognizing both monitors, i.e. the mobo isn't shutting off the video card because I have something plugged into the mobo vga port. My desktop appears on Monitor 2, etc. and I can see both monitors and choose "Extend These Displays" in my display settings.
However, even though I see the desktop (i.e. wallpaper) on Monitor 2, I can't move my mouse over to that monitor or move windows onto that screen. My mouse just stops at the edge of Monitor 1. Anyone know why this would be the case? Is it just not possible to do this correctly when using both the video card and mobo?
My video card is Radeon HD 6850 and mobo is a Gigabyte Z68 something or other.
NM I figured out the problem...
I had Monitor 2 to the left of Monitor 1 on my desk and was trying to move windows off the left side of Window 1 but needed to move them to the right side.
