hi

new to this. i have a galaxy g4 mx440 with no manual. i have tried the galaxy website but no joy.

i want to know how to set up a second monitor so i can drag palletes etc across to this monitor whilst working in apps such as illustrator.

the card box says it runs two monitors but i dont know how to set it up.

can someone please help. also anyone with a manual or link please send through.

thanks

there shouldnt be much to it, your card has dual VGA connectors right? Connect both monitors, install the latest detonator drivers from Nvidia (http://www.nvidia.com), then start windows

In windows click START, click SETTINGS, click CONTROL PANEL, click DISPLAY, click SETTINGS, click ADVANCED, click the tab called "GeForce4 MX", on the left hand side menu click "Nview Display Mode" and everything you need should be right there.

If your video card only has one VGA connector, you'll need to install an additional PCI card then. Info for dual display with that can be found in this thread (http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?s=&threadid=16676).
