Default dual monitors

My HP176 had mellinium on it when I got it. Display settings showed two monitors.

I installed 2000 PRO and lost the driver I guess, unless it was part of mellinium.

Are drivers available to run a dual monitor for this computor?
where can I find it?

Depends on your video card. Find out which one you have and get the drivers specific for that one.
How do I determine what type of video card I have?

If you already have the drivers, good. If not download them. When only 1 monitor is plugged in the Display Setting will only show 1. Now if you plug in a 2nd monitor and restart you should see 2 monitors. Download your hp drivers from HP Support & Drivers and just type in HP176 and install all the drivers that them may have for you. Check if you PC has 2 vga ports out so you can do dual screen. If you have an integrated video card then you will need a PCI card for dual monitors unless you have a PCIe or VGA slot on the motherboard.
