July 5th, 2008, 01:44 AM
Hi I have a ATI Mobility Radeon 7500 video card on a compaq evo n800v laptop. I cant seem to get dual monitors working. Is there any way to get it working and if there is, how do i do it? The primary monitor is a laptop screen with a resolution of 1400x1050 and the secondary monitor is a LG Studioworks 775N with a resolution of 1280x1024.

I'll try this with my Dell Inspiron | 5100 after I finish lunch, will report back results, and if it works then how I did it.

All I had to do in the Dell Inspiron | 5100 with ATi 7500 was to FN+F8 at boot to get it showing up on my Vizio 42" 720 Plasma.

If your using an AGP card you may have to put something in the xorg file though. Anyway on laptop it just works, some adjustments will likely be needed to get it perfect, but out of the box the destop pops up on the T.V.
