I have a dell latitude with windows xp pro sp3.
2 monitors - 1 is a 19" (original) and one is a 15" - both have analog inputs.
2 issues here...
1) user purchased an additional monitor to "extend" his workspace.  Per NVIDIA this vid card does support this.  monitor was purchased....vid cable splitter purchased.  Screen shows up on both monitors.  but its the same image on both screens.  How do i get this to have a single workspace across both screens?
2) the original monitor before i had troubleshooted the issue the original monitor (one is 19" and one is 15") had display settings of 1280x768.  the 15" only supports 1024x768.  i changed that setting...but it put the 19" display a bit fuzzy....now i cannot set the original monitor past 1024x768.

1. Make sure you install the latest Nvidia drivers (and reboot)
2. Open display properties, select the settings tab, and click ADVANCED
3. Select the DISPLAY tab at the top
4. On the display mode change from CLONED to whatever they call it (expanded, separate, etc)
5. apply settings and return to the basic settings (where you have display resolution, etc
6. Select the second monitor by clicking it in the picture (or use the drop down)
7. Tick the check box that says "extend my desktop onto this monitor"

Done!
