Recently put a new GFX card in, now cant use dual monitor set up

Hi all

New to these forums and " self help " with my PC..


As stated above i have recently installed a new GFX , radeon 6450. Now I cant get the dual monitors to work side by side. Ive browsed these pages this evening, tried all I can to resolve the problem including stripping all relative parts , cleaning, & reassembling, but to no avail


Is there anyone who can advise me please?

OS is XP as a matter of interest

Many thanks

Bodkin
