    I'm trying to run dual screens in bootcamped XP. My Dell 2005FPW dualscreens with my MBP (latest revision) well in OSX, but will not ds in XP. I go into the windows options and the "Make primary monitor" button for Screen 2 (the dell) is greyed out.

    I did a little research and found that some videocards (especially laptop ones) won't do ds. But I don't understand why it does it in OSX but not XP. Do I need to set some setting in the BIOS or something? I'll even settle with making the Dell monitor my primary monitor (with the MBP screen blank or mirroring). I really just want it on my external monitor so I can run games on it.

    Thanks!

    The option isn't greyed out for me, but I'm not running the bootcamp drivers, I'm running a set of drivers and modified inf from laptopvideo2go.
