Are you still using just one monitor for your computer? It is very easy to add a 2nd monitor to your computer. And you’ll be more productive too. You can have e-mails up on one monitor and do some internet surfing on the other. Or if you’re a stock buff, you can have 2 stock ticker pages up on the screens. Basically, you’ll be more productive by having more display space to put your windows and applications.
How do you do it? First, you have to make sure you have a dual-head video card. This will allow for the 2 monitors to be connected to your computer. A good video card costs about $150 – 200. You should try to get at least 256MB video memory and 512MB is ideal. Then, you’ll need to obviously get another monitor. If you feel technical enough, you can install the card by going on the manufacturer’s website to follow the instructions. The proper steps are to install the hardware, or video card first, then the software, and then configure the software for your monitors. If you don’t feel comfortable setting it up on your own, you can call New York Computer Help.
