    I just made a new computer, and I have a nice 19" widescreen, and I want to add a couple inches from my older monitor. (its a DVI -fatscreen-). I tried tonight, but it didnt work, I have an onboard cvideo card, and an additional card (EAX1600PRO) It has slots for 1 VGA and one dvi.

    Once it is physically set-up right click on your desktop and go to properties. Click on the Settings tab, then select your second monitor under Display. Then check Extend My Windows Desktop Onto This Monitor.
