Windows 7: Adjusting graphics properties doesn't apply to both monitors

Adjusting graphics properties doesn't apply to both monitors

I wasn't sure if I should post this here or in Software, so apologies.

I'm using dual monitors and I'm using the Intel Graphics and Media Control Panel to try and change things like contract and gamma, but it only works for one monitor. When I go to Display -> Multiple Displays, the only possible Operating Mode is Single Display and my second monitor isn't even listed as a possible Primary Display. Both my monitors are the same make/model if it helps. Thanks.

Hi Omoshu and welcome to Seven Forums.
You need to hook both of your monitors to the Graphics card then windows will detect them and you can then select them in the Display properties as 1 and 2. Using the on board video is not the option you want for 2 monitors hence the reason it is not working for you.
