Conclusion On Set up screen - Keeping more than one display device in your computer is easy to do but it requires the use of correct hardware.
I have an old CRT monitor apart rom my present computer’s monitors. I thought to access that monitor too with my computer. Should I attatch my old monitor too with my computer? I am presently using windows xp as my operating system. How will I be effected by using two monitors in my computer? Some of my friends who did so got successful results. Will it bring any advantage for me?
Windows xp perform a mindblowing job to carry out the accesment of two monitors. And why only to it provides you an opportunity to access three, four. and more monitors at a time with your computer as it is capable to handle multy-monitor functions. But the main problem lies in the factor of ‘plug in’. Your desktop computer generally have only one plug in space for the display device.
You can connect the second monitor to your computer by the following ways-
- You can install a video card in your computer which might support the connection of more then one display device.
- Second option is that you can install an additional vediio card which will assist the accessment of another display device.
still the problem of plugging it in remains similar. To solve this problem you can connect a USB device which provides you extra VGA/DVI output.You can also use a product called ‘maxivista’ which allows you to connect another computer, so that it’s monitor.
After you will have connected both the monitors with your computer the setting tab will show you both the display devices and allow you to arrange them and set their optios according to your wish.
In case of laptops already have the capability of multiple-monitor connection and almost all of them consist of extra VGA/DVI connectios for the attatchment of external monitor.
So, having dual or multiple monitor facility in your computer is really a thing of joy as it provides me the function of a productivity stimulator and I am excited to connect a third monitor with my computer while two ae already assisting me.
