    I have a PC with both a monitor and a large screen attached. When I boot
    into windows, it automatically turns off the monitor and goes to the large
    screen - is there a way to reverse this? Is there a way to make it go to

    When it boots, both devices are on.

    Right after driver installation the ATI drivers seem to give the DVI port
    preference. Be nice if they remembered the previous settings. Just go
    into the control panel (right click on the desktop, pick properties, then
    display settings, then advanced, then displays) and set the one you want to
    use as primary. If you want to use both then set clone mode on the
    secondary--it should go to that automatically when you set the monitor as
    primary, but you may have to click the appropriate button.
