    but all I am seeing is a black second screen with a mouse pointer whan I hover over it! I know that the monitor is somewhat dated but it should work ok as it did when I was using Windows 7!

    Anyone have any ideas? Many thanks!

    I know a lot of people have been mentioning issues with the Intel G41 after upgrading to Windows 10. There is this video for updating the driver, but you may just be asking the integrated graphics to do more than its capable of on Windows 10. If you have at least a 350 watt power supply, and a free PCI-E slot, you could try to get an Nvidia GT 600 or GT 610. Retail prices are usually around 30. I realize it might not be ideal, but you'd get much better graphics performance, and should be able to do two monitors just fine.

    Someone else might know a better solution.
