GeForce 2 MX 400 Curiosity Question

#1
Ok, Heres the thing! I have a Geforce 2MX 400 (64MB).. and i have recently put another computer in my room so that i can have 2 monitors up. My Geforce 2MX 400 has a TV-Out and i was wondering if i can put another monitor onto the TV-Out on my Geforce card so i dont have to keep turning on the other computer (i guess im lazy).. all i really need is more screen space. So can i put a monitor on a TV-Out port? What things to i need to get it running? I have all the latest drivers etc. Please help me. Its more of a curiosity question than anything else. I know you can fit another graphics card in the tower and have that running on as a secondary but i cant get inside my comp for another year (Warenty thing) :(

Thank you for your time

Sincerly

No you can't plug TV-out into a regular computer monitor, sorry! About that warranty. First off I think it sucks. Secondly, is there a "Warranty is void yada yada..." sticker on the case? If not, they really can't tell if you opened it... *nudge**nudge*

what Cosmin said.. sounds like what you need is a dual monitor card.. Matrox G450 and G550 and ATI Radeon 8500 provide dual monitor support.. TV-out will only provide the same video signal to a TV, soyou're just duplicating the monitor instead of providing more screen space..

geforce4 cards provide dual monitor support:
clone mode and vertical/horizontal spanning

clone mode will just duplicate your desktop
spanning will increase your desktop


i have my lcd connected using the dvi and my tv using the svideo out...running in clone mode
