Hi
I recently installed a soundcard and CD rom in a friends PC133 machine. I used a spare monitor I had and everything was fine. when I returned the tower to my friend on rebooting she gets multiple desktops showing. I believe that this is a monitor setting issue as I have used a KTX Digital monitor and hers is a 14' Phillips SVGA. I have tried resetting the monitor to no avail. On replugging in my spare monitor the system works fine. Any helpful tips appreciated pse. Cheers

It maybe a refresh rate setting or something that the monitor can't handle. You should boot into safe mode and set it up there.

The obvious one is the setting in display properties which may give you an option to extend desktop on to the other display? Normally adapters rather than monitors though.
