    What for statement is that?
    Do you follow the same principle when you buy everything in your life?
    Sorry but it sounds childish to me.

    > And i have a vga and an hdmi output so i figured it would become dual monitors but it didnt.
    Anyway, for better understanding: if I understood you right you want to have pic on two external monitors at the same time. Is that correct? Or you want to use VGA port only?

    yeah, i dont understand his frustration or his problem either. from what i can understand he would like to use 2 screens using and hdmi and a vga port simultaneously, which probably impossible, due to graphic drivers restrictions and not toshiba's anything

    i would suggest OP to calm down and maybe think of getting a pc with 2xDVI ports
    stop causing drama

    Recommend checking this Toshiba document.

    +*Is it possible to use two external monitors on a Qosmio X500?*+
    http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB13033Y0000R01.htm

    Yes, it is possible.
    Connect the VGA and the HDMI monitor to the related connectors. Now you can use the key combination FN + F5 to activate both monitors.
    Choose "HDMI + CRT Extended Desktop". The internal display will turn of.


    Note: All three displays (two external and the internal one) can not be activated simultaneously.
