    hi, i hope someone can help. i need to know if you can run dual monitors using boot camp on the new nvidia macbook pros running XP. by dual monitors i mean the macbook pro in built screen and one external monitor which you can use as extended desktop space.

    i need this as i don't want to buy a nasty PC and its essential for me to have dual monitors as i need them for online poker at sites which can only be installed on windows. i really want to buy a macbook pro but i can't unless i definitely know i can run the extended desktop on boot camp windows without any problems. hopefully someone can confirm this is possible for me. hopefully someone who currently is running this setup.

    I have the same issue

    The WinXP OS keeps trying to install some drivers in the background I guess because I keep hearing the bell every so many minutes and the screen refreshes but was never able to see anything on the extended desktop, in this case my TV. Is there any trick to make this work? I am trying to watch my Netflix movies on the big screen...
