  • dual monitors

    I know this is a random noobish question, but I've been digging around on yahoo and ATI/AMD's website and can't find the program I need to run dual monitors. Trying to setup 2 monitors (20.1" and 16") on a Radeon 4850 and I can't find any info on reputable sites, can someone point me in the right direction?

    You should be able to set it up from the ATI Catalyst Control Center once you've connected both monitors to your rig.

      If you are running Windows then you don't need that, do you?

      I occasionally hook up another monitor to my 3850 and extend the desktop to it through the display setting. One is a 21" CRT and the other a 24" dell LCD. One uses the digital connector and the other I have to use the adapter.

        Err, need to set it up in the Catalyst CP?

        I'm pretty sure you do unless there's some sort of auto-setting that expands your desktop space when you plug in a second monitor (that I didn't know of).

          In Windows, right click the desktop, select properties, open the settings tab.
          In the middle window, select the new monitor, set the resolution to the correct setting, drag the monitor to match the actual physical arrangement, and check the checkbox saying something like "Extend my Windows desktop to this monitor". Click Apply.

          Your desktop should now span both monitors.

          Then go buy Ultramon.
