*-*- Solved -*-* Thank you very much.
I've been trawling the internet trying to find a solution, I think I fixed part of the problem but its created another.
I have a Packard Bell iXtreme X6622UK (OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit)computer, with a random 19" monitor i've forgotten the name of (was with my old compaq comp). Today I bought a 19" Packard Bell monitor in an attempt to Dual Screen.
So first I was just trying to get windows 7 to recognise the monitor with no luck. Eventually I discovered if I hit the windows button + p and "extend" I could get it to detect/recognise the second monitor in the control pannel. But thats the only way, it won't detect on its own, through the control pannel-> display etcetc or the Nvidia Control Pannel (which says "set up multiple displays" not "enable multiple displays" like guides i've seen).
However the 2nd monitor says theres no signal and then goes on standby.
I just ran all the updates I have on my comp, and i've looked through some topics but i'm not really sure what to do.
Oh i'm running the second monitor on a DVI, just like the first, since there are 2 DVI conections in the back of the box. Dunno if that makes a difference.
Any advice would be really helpful.
