Anywhere on your computer's "wallpaper", click with the second (usually the one on the right) mouse-button, and choose "Screen Resolution".

 

Does it show that you have two monitors?

 

Click 'Identify' -- a big '1' or '2' will display on your monitor.

 

Is it set to "clone" the Windows display onto both of the monitors?

Is it set to "extend my display onto this monitor" ?

When you open the Windows "Device Manager", does it look like:

Three things:

 

1. you need to "click" to "expand" the 'Display Adapters' branch of this "tree".

2. if it shows "generic device", you need to download/install the specific device-driver for your video-card, to enable dual-monitor support.

3. it should show two devices (this computer does not have a second display, so this picture only shows one).

 

Point #2 is probably the most important.

If you have done this point, then #3 will show the multi-monitor capability.
