Dell XPS 420 Mini View Problem

I have a Dell XPS 420, it came with miniview (part of the tower), turned on with Vista. I have just now noticed that with 7 it is not on. I go to device manager and I eventually come to the instructions turn on Miniview. My question, HOW?

I was searching dell xps when I come across your post about the miniview. I done a custom install of Windows 7 Pro, and had no problems with dell miniview, I don't know how to turn it on/off though. If you need some screen shots on settings I will be glad to put some up if you tell me what you need.

I do appreciate the offer, but the post is many months old and the problem is solved.

I will be glad to help you, also, when I see your posts or questions.

My Miniview just turned on when I updated the driver.

Take care and thanks.
