Hi Gents,

I'm sure one of you can help me out pretty swiftly..

On my Hackintosh I've got dual screens. They work in Windows (7) showing 'extended desktop' but in OS X (10.6.8) they don't.

They both 'work', as it were.. but in OS X they only 'mirror' and give me the desktop twice. In 'System Preferences/Displays there is NO option to change that, it only shows options for one display - as if it doesn't even register the second monitor.

Anybody know why? Is it a kexts issue?, Do I need a different card? or what?

(The graphics card is an ATI Radeon).

Thanks mateys!

You will not get an informative answer without updating your profile to include:

System - motherboard make/model
CPU - Intel - Model
Graphics - make/model

At the moment this is what is showing:
System:macbook
CPU:2 gHz
Graphics:64

Not a lot of detail to work on........
