I have a fairly new laptop with an ATI Radeon card and I'm trying to mirror the laptop's display on a second monitor. I've plugged the monitor's cable into the VGA port on the laptop. But the monitor is acting as an extension of my laptop screen. So it is blank, but if I move my cursor on the laptop far to the right, it will appear on the monitor.
If I access the ATI panel for the Displays, I can switch over to the monitor, but then my laptop is blank (ie. not mirrored).
Any ideas on how I can get the mirroring to work correctly?
