Thread: Setting up two monitors to a CPU

  1. #1

    Setting up two monitors to a CPU

    Hi there good people!

    Can you pls tell me specifically, as basic as you can, the step-by-step procedures to install two monitors to a single CPU, such that any thing I view will be stretched across the two monitors (instead of having to scroll horizontally)?

    What I have now are two monitors and a CPU. Pls let me know if I need any other hardware, and also, the step-by-step procedure of installation.

    Thank you so much way, way in advance.

    Multiple monitors has nothing to do with the CPU.

    It will require that you have either two video cards, or a single video card with dual outputs.

    If using a video card with dual outputs, simply plug both monitors in, start windows, and then in Control Panel > Display there should be an option to enable the second monitor and to configure its position and behaviour.

    Non-techies refer to the entire case & contents as "the CPU". Confusing, I know, but just thought I'd clear that up.
