Dual Displays

I want to connect my Sharp Aquos flat screen TV to my computer, and see my desktop on both the TV and computer monitor.

Windows Vista Home Premium.
HP Pavilion a1610n computer.
Galaxy GeForce 8400 GS graphics card, outputs: 1-VGA, 1-DVI, and 1-SVGA.  There is no HDMI port on the card.

I connected a VGA cable between the motherboard "on-board" VGA port and the TV, figuring that I could use that output to work with the TV.  The computer monitor is plugged into the GeForce graphics card.

Tried the Desktop "Display Setting".  It says, the  number 2 monitor is "Not Activated".  But when I activate it in the BIOS, computer monitor display goes blank, and the desktop appears on the TV screen.

Not sure what to do, short of upgrading to a more expensive graphics card, with maybe 2 VGA outputs on it?

Get a DVI to HDMI converter cable and use it from the nVidia to your TV.  They're readily 
available
wherever fine cables are sold (sounds like an ad!)

And when you get it hooked up you have to set the options on the video card 
to either copy the monitor or be an extension of your desktop. You need to 
first look at the options of your video card and verify it can drive two 
monitors. You may have to upgrade your video card.

Public Folder path display incorrectly in GAL

Dual Boot Dilema
I have a computer with space for only two hard drives. It was originally built with Windows XP Pro (Disk 0). I added a drive (Disk 1) and loaded Vista Ultimate on it and I do a dual boot routine as needed. At this point, I'd like to install a new Disk 0 and build it as Windows 7 Pro. (I really wish I could upgrade my Vista Ultimate to Win7 Pro) I guess my question is this, if I put in a new Disk 0, boot to a DVD and build it to Win 7, what will happen to my Disk 1? Will Windows still recognize that there are two bootable drives and ask me which one to use? When I put a...
