    Attaching 2 monitors

    I have attached 2 monitors to my PC using a VGA splitter. They are both showing exactly the same display. I have changed the settings in Control Panel to Extend the Display and gone into Devices in Windows 8 to do the same but they are both still showing exactly the same display.

    Can anyone help?

    64-bit Windows 10

    Hello Susi, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Each monitor will need to have it's own separate connection to the graphics card/chip instead of using a splitter to be able to do so.

    A splitter will basically only have the same output split onto both monitors.
