How to run an Extra Monitor in Windows XP

John,

For you to be able to have several monitors connected depends on whether your computer has the appropriate output ports. Most computers have the port. To use a television set as a second monitor, just connect the HDMI cable to the respective HDMI ports, or the S-Video cables to the various S-Video ports-depending on the type of computer and television set that you have. You can also use a VGA to S-Video (also called RCA) cable depending on the television set that you have.

If you want to use the monitor of another computer but your monitor only has one VGA port, you can use the MAtroxDualHead2Go multi monitor unit to connect them: http://www.matrox.com/graphics/en/products/gxm/dh2go/digital_se/  

Ok, now if you already have the multiple monitors connected, just go to the control panel>appearance and themes> Display. The other monitor will be detected automatically.

On the settings tab you will have the option to select the primary monitor. Use the identification tool to identify which monitor is primary. On the same settings tab you can choose to extend the display or duplicate the display. If you extend the display you will be able to view different things on each monitor. You can run the programs you want but you will have to drag the other one to the other monitor in order to view them simultaneously. This works if you decide to extend your display.

Hope this helps
