hahahaha you bought a 8500GT its a dupe card the HD support for htpc doesn't work and its gaming graphics performance is lame but I suppose its cheap and cheerful so can't really complain.

Try using ultramon best dual monitor program I have used and I have gone through a few...... for my 8800gts I had to uninstall the nvidia drivers and software then install ultramon and then install the nvidia drivers and software as the nvidia program was sending the info through to ultramon as there being one super stretched display whilst doing it this way made ultramon the default controller so it could see the monitors seperately

hmm. right click desktop, click properties, click settings, and enable both monitors, set them up the way you want them positioned, and enable them both, set them to the resolution you want, and hit apply, and they should work.

Ive tried it but the second moniter doesnt go to windows, it goes blue!

And pal, the 8500 has been tearing it up, I don't need to blow 300 bucks when I can get good enough preformance for 149.99.
I ain't complaining yet. When I do you'll know
