I am using the computer in my specs. I just bought a 20" acer lcd for a 2nd screen. My goal was to play my game in windowed mode on screen 1 (the 24" asus) and have aim, itunes, widgets on screen 2 (20" acer). I can't seem to get them to extend the desktop to eachother. Can someone explain to me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

I'm not using the latest CCC display layout, still using the old one.

But what you have to do for the most part is...

1. Open up CCC
2. Click graphics
3. Click desktops & displays
4. Click the black arrow that is facing down on the monitor
5. Click display group then create group.
6. Set up the positioning
7. Done

Hope this helps.
