Setting up dual monitors

  Bramblerose 13:49 02 Apr 2009

I would like to set up two monitors to work with my pc.

I only have one port to plug in a monitor at the moment.

Has anyone ever used an adaptor that you plug into a USB point and then just plug the other monitor in or would I be better getting another graphics card that has two ports?

You need a Graphics Card that supports two Monitors. Then Settings are in Display Properties under Adapter

I only have one VGA output but I think the card supports two monitors as when I go into display properties, it gives me options for two monitors. The adapter is an ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series.

I really don't want to change/add a graphics card.

I have seen this click here and wondered if this is what I need?

All I want to do is view a document on one screen and be able to work on another screen.

I have used and can recommend anyone Toshiba Universal docking station which allows another monitor (VGA or DVI,and S/PDIF, Serail port, ethernet, four useb ports (two powered)Microphone and headphone inputs via one usb connection. It is called Dynadock. These are quite expensive but on ebay they are much cheaper?
Hope this help.
