Default External display on Medion laptop with GForce FX 5200

Hi

I can't get my Medion laptop to simply display the main screen on an
external monitor. All I get is this crappy (and totally useless) extra
screen area. I know that in that awful Nvidia desktop manager there should
be an option to "clone" the display or something. The version of the
software I have does not appear to have this facility (or it's well hidden)
THe walk through's I've seen on a couple of websites show a different
variant of the software.

For those interested, the Medion (sold through Toys R Us, believe it or
not!) is a nice machine, only really spoilt by the crappy graphics card, but
I suppose you can't have everything!

Thanks

Martin

I've worked on and recommended,"Medion" systems for 3 years or
more.They are superb build quality/price and their after sales is
usually top notch.If the above URL doesn't help ring them direct and
ask for a call back so you don't pay.They have been nothing but
helpful to all those I know who have their systems

Thanks for that. I finally found the right bit. god awful bit of software
though that Nvidia desktop manager. Even Bill Gates would be ashamed!!

Yes, my Medion laptop got a good review recently, only knocked for having
256 meg of ram. It now has 512 as standard, so you can't go wrong there.
