Pick a monitor by clicking on its image(or select it from the display drop-down), select "Extend desktop to this display" under Multiple Displays - then you should see a check box to "Make this my main display." Pick which ever one you want (you can rearrage the position of the monitors by dragging the icons where you want them).

I just took a peek at AMD's support site, assuming the Catalyst package would be there for a 9250 and I note they only currently support 9500 and later cards in this respect.

Facts are this is an old card and if you could lay hands on a 9550 or 9600 you'd get a little more flexibility, slightly better support, and a small performance nudge.

Unfortunately, I'm guessing it is as Qdos has suggested - a driver issue. Might be time for an upgraded card...

Are you really talking about a Radeon 9250 8xAGP card? They've been discontinued for such a long time the only sources are PC reclaim, eBay, etc!

The 9250's are still available out in the wild, but I think they are primarily targeted for folks that are still stuck with either an AGP or old-style PCI graphics interface on their motherboard. Even so, there are fresher alternatives including the HD 3650 and HD 4650 that support an AGP interface, and the HD 2400 PRO for PCI. But if you have an available PCIe x16 slot then your choices become much improved.

Does your motherboard support any more advanced graphics interfaces? Even AGP will give you much better results than the standard PCI bus.

Can you fill in your system specifications completely please?

Until you show exactly what hardware you're using there is likely to be a little confusion cropping up...
