Exclamation Dual Monitors and the wrong one works


Hello, I installed the new Nvidia drivers from their site.
I have 2 monitors sitting on my desk. A 15 inch Black Toshiba and a 17 inch Syvania. The 17 inch is my primary Monitor. Well, once I installed the new drivers and edited my XF86Config-4 file, reset my machine, my desktop appears on my 15 inch and not my 17 inch. My 17 inch is blank actually.
Anyone have a clue how to enable both or to just have my desktop on 1 monitor?
Thanks for all the help guys.
Sincerely,
Lord Rashid

Yeah, I feel dumb. I didnt read the Nvidia Readme. Sorry for all the dumb threads. Next time i post I'll post something that doesnt require me reading a Readme file. Guess I'm just too impatient.
Sincerely,
Lord Rashid
