    My Dell Insipron 6400 laptop will not support multiple monitors. I think I may not have a key driver installed. Help!!

    I have attached two separate images, screen shot of my device manager and display properties and a screen shot of the same image on my mothers PC. (which is also a Dell Inspiron 6400)

    On my PC, In my device manager I can not view the display adapters (there must be something installed and I do not have visiblilty?? correct??)

    Also, on my display properties I do not even have the option for Multiple monitor support. (these are the same PC's)

    I inserted my Drivers and Utilities CD from Dell, but I did not see any driver on there that was applicable to a display adapter.

    Am I on the right track???

    Thanks

    -- From the screen shot, i reckon there are no Video drivers installed for Display adapter in your laptop. Your Mom's laptop is fine

    There are 8 different Video Drivers listed on the Dell Drivers page for your computer.
