Radeon 9250 dual monitors

Hi, i installed this card in my new emachine. one monitor in the vga port and the other in the dvi port using a div-vga converter. i get two identical screens, instead of one large extended screen. how do i fix this? thanks in advance.

the radeon card is for xp, but windows 7 recognized it.

That's the extent of W7's dual/multi monitor management.

You'll require additional software for enhanced functionality I'm afraid.

You should be able to configure this by right-clicking on your desktop and choosing "Screen resolution" - there you should be able to select a main monitor and enable extended desktop for the other one.

Either DisplayFusion or Ultramon might do the job.

Wait and see what others suggest though, someone may have good links to decent freeware

You'd need the Catalyst bundle for that, not merely the card driver package.

just googled "Catalyst bundle" and didn't get any relevant hits. is it really this hard to run dual monitors on a windows machine? thank you for all the replies, i really need to get this to work.
