I just installed my second monitor and it is great. The only thing i wanted to know was if it was in anyway possible to make it so if i have a fullscren app on one screen i can then do things like IM and browsing the net on the other without the fullscreen app minmizing. thanks

Probably not, i dont think BF1942 supports window play.

BF1942 is not very good at handling focusing and unfocusing the game while it is running. BF2 handles this better. I have two monitors and have tried different setups, without much improvement in this issue.

there is a way i think, now the day i got my LCD i put both VGA and DVI cables into the computer, and so the nVidia drivers thinks i have two moniters, now have a look at the attatchments attachment.php?attachmentid=37671&stc=1 attachment.php?attachmentid=37670&stc=1 now, as i said, because i only have one moniter, it only shows up as there is only one monitor on the picture above. The (2 of 2) indicates that im using the DVI cable over the VGA. But if you had two monitors it would show as two, therefore you would be able to send windows over to your other monitor... right? hope this helps

I have the exact set up you want and it works great. The only thing is im a tard and dont know how i did it. Go to properties then settings and mess with the monitors there. If i can figure it out you shouldnt have a problem.
