Can't extend desktop.

Recently I just finished a build with XP Pro. The graphics card is the XFX
Nvidia 8600GTS with 512MB memory and 2 x DVI outputs.

However, I can't extend my desktop to the second monitor. I have two
monitors plugged in yet windows is only detecting the one output. On my
laptop it shows 2 black squares with 1 and 2 representing the two monitors,
here I only have a picture showing a monitor with the desktop blue background.

Why is it not finding the other output?

The drivers are the latest ones from the Nvidia website?


Thanks!

Re: Can't extend desktop.

Control Panel ( Classic View ), nVidia Control Panel, ( Advanced ). When
the applet opens choose the "Display" category, "Set up Multiple Displays".
