I now have 2 monitors hooked up to my computer, but they seem to be mirrored. I saw on another post where they found a place in Display>Settings to uncheck mirroring. I can't seem to find this. What I do find is that it shows (Multiple Monitors) on RADEON 9200. However I don't find 2 icons as mentioned in my XP help files. In the Display>Settings>Advanced>Displays tab, I have Monitor and FPD shown as connected. FPD shows my SDM-HX7 SONY monitor and Monitor shows DDC: Supported. In my Device Manager, it shows only one Display Adapter which is the RADEON 9200.

Is there any way to fix this without buying yet more hardware as I don't have any more available slots to add another video card?

Thanks

How are both monitors connected?

Google shows only a single VGA output on the 9200, but there are probably many versions.

The GF4 card I use has both DVI and VGA, I have one monitor connected to each. No mirroring occurs.

My Catalyst Control Center has never agreed with my LCD monitor so it is difficult to read a lot of the settings. But isn't there a section that deals with how you want your dual monitors to display? If you don't have the control center try getting at the settings through the desktop.

I am able to get to the settings, however they don't show the icons for both of my monitors as seems to be the normal way to set them up. They both show in some places, but I can't find where I can select the display that I want to change to an extended desktop.
