    Hi, is it possible to set the background for each monitor seperately in a dual setup?
    Get tired of having bliss on both screens.

    i think you can, but i haven't run dual display in so long that i can't remember how to do it. It might also depend on if you use special software that came with the video card (i.e. hydravision for ati).

    Running a G4ti 4400

    Im using Nvidia nview, with the destop manger.

    You can either use windows native dual display support, or nview's. I rather use windows because the taskbar is not streched across both monitors, and feels a bit better.

    With nview its just one really wide monitor, and i combind two backgrounds to make it look like different backgrounds on each monitor. This is what i have in 2000, as it doesn't have native support. In xp its better using native.
