Windows 7: nVidia GeForce 8500 GT Dual Screen ?

nVidia GeForce 8500 GT Dual Screen ?

Hi,

I recently got a projector from a friend and im trying to setup dual screen.

First of all im a bit confused by the Graphics Card itself. I looked for pictures of the card which my computer recognizes as a nVidia GeForce 8500 GT and none have a HDMI port but mine does. So i opened the case and the card has ATI and Foxconn written on it but nothing with nVidia on it.

I have a HDMI to VGA cable which im trying to use to go to my monitor but when i plug it in while switched on i get nothing on the monitor but the projector still works and if i plug it in then boot I get no output on my monitor and just just a black screen and the mouse pointer on my monitor.

I have no idea what to do. Any suggestions ?

Thanks

Find what? Hit start and type Connect, and click on Connect to a Projector. Alternatively, hold the Windows key and hit P.

What do you mean nothing?

It doesn't help or literally, nothing shows on the screen that pops open?

When i press Windows Key + P it beeps and does nothing.

When i search for it I can open it and change settings but its not doing anything. The projector is already working and im using it as my main display I just cannot get my monitor to work dual screen.

Try right-clicking on the desktop and hit Screen Resolution. From there you can also setup dual monitors.
