    dual display on my 867 12"
    Hey I wos wondering if I could run another display off of my 12" G4 867. I dont want a mirror I want another display for my PS pallets and working with Avid DV Pro. I just didn't want to spend anymore money if I can't run another display.

    To my knowledge, all PowerBooks can have the screen split over 2 displays, so you shouldn't have any problems. I've had 2 screens running on my 12" 1.33GHz PB (not a mirror, they were actually running side by side).

    Good luck!

    You mean PowerBooks right?
    My 12-inch 1.33GHz does dual display, but I'm not sure if the older models do. Plug a monitor in, if you get a mirrored signal, go to the Displays preference and play about in there. F7 on your PowerBook keyboard should be marked as the switch button between modes of your monitors.

    12" 867 PB has mini VGA instead of DVI unlike PB 1.33, so it can only mirror by default, but you can use "screen spanning doctor" and it will unlock the dual display feature.

    I checked out that screen spanning doctor and it says it only works with iMacs, iBooks and eMacs. And I'm a little afraid to try it on my Powerbook. Can anyone tell me if it woks on powerbooks too?

    not true. the fact it has mini VGA means that it can only be connected to a VGA monitor. you can span the displays natively on all g4 powerbooks. you don't need screen spanning doctor
