I am trying to run an extra large display monitor off one of our computers at school. I have a GeForce 2 mx64 card and we are using the winfast program. All I am able to get is the windows background with no icons on the large monitor. The small computer monitor runs perfectly. Has anyone got any suggestions. We were hoping to use this large display as a teaching tool.
Thanks
Pete

Depends on how you're connecting the monitors. At my school, we had the Big monitor connected to the video card, and a smaller monitor connected to the big monitor. This only works if your extra large display monitor has the plug at the back to do it.

Do you get the start/task bar on the large monitor?

I think what you're wanting to do is to get it so that they are 'mirrored'.

Try dragging a window on to the second computer and see what happens.
