need help with dual monitors

so all laptops with windows xp are supposed to have built extended display options. for some reason, mine doesn't. I can get the same thing to display on the laptop screen and the external monitor, but thats not what I want. Does anyone know how to turn this option on your know of any software that will allow me to do the same thing?

Re: need help with dual monitors

either that or the vid card cant do it, google your vid card and the options you want see what pops up.

hhmmm, if you look here: http://support.intel.com/support/graphics/ my graphics control is the 82845g, which is listed under desktop controllers. Do you think I have the wrong driver installed some how?

Re: need help with dual monitors

honestly, no idea. I just redownloaded the drivers from dell.com and reinstalled them, no change.

Re: need help with dual monitors

its not windows xp that does it, its the video cars that does it. XP may have the ability but if the vid card doesnt then your SOL. My old vid card would not do it, my new one does it fine.
