    I've got 2 monitors laying around, and what do I do? Just plug them both in, to get dual screens? Where exactly do I plug them in, when do I need to set them up. Ect.

    What do you have for them to plug into?

    You either need two video cards installed or a video card that support two monitors.

    Okay. I got them both working. 1 question though.

    If I move my mouse all the way to the right then keep going. It goes to the other monitor. Is there any way I could configure it so if I move my mouse left it will go to the other monitor?

    Right-click on the desktop > Properties > Settings tab, you'll see two boxes, 1 - Primary 2 - Secondary. Click and drag box 2 to the left of 1.
