    i have a pc setup in my study with a 4:3 monitor the pc is connected to a projector in my entertainment room from an ati 9700 pro, when i connected yesterday for first time the monitor is ok but on the projector all i have is windows wallpaper.

    how do i go about setting up the two displays best so when i go to my entertainment room i can put on projector and have all my icons and games ready to play , then when projector is switched off my normal study monitor shows my desktop . do i need a special program or do i just use the ati program.

    thanks

    robert

    I presume you want to use different resolutions, otherwise simply using 'clone' mode should work for this. For different resolutions one of the most flexible ways is to use Ultramon, though I've not used it in a long time it still seems to be the best way to go I think.
