dual screen setup with generic gfx card?

Any software or anything I can do to make this work with a generic graphic card? Right now I can clone the screen but that is about it. The resolution is a mess.
The card I have is a leadtek winfast a280 but no luck with finding W7 drivers.

You should be able to hit either Win+P and pick a setting, and right click on your desktop and choose screen res.

Ive done it with two generic graphic cards. Just snag another PCI card out of an old PC and give that a shot.

I really doubt your current one can process two different screens. GL

Cool. Didnt know you could do that!

Dont think setting it up is his issue though.

No problem.

That is correct, your card most likely does not have a Seven driver, so you are out of luck.
