I have a 22in widescreen for my 15.4 n Macbook pro, and on the Windows side, i would like to play Halo on the 22in, rather than the 15.4in. How can i switch it over?

Are you asking how you would go about connecting the monitor? That should be handled with the DVI connector on the side of the MBP. You may need to use a DVI-VGA adapter depending on what kind of input the monitor has. Windows XP (running under Boot Camp) should automatically detect your display. You can configure multiple monitor options through the Display control panel.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Nope, i already have it hooked up via the DVI cable. I need to know how i can transfer the window (full screen) from the 15.4 to the 22in.

In windows you'll most likely have to make teh 22" LCD the primary display.

The easiest way to do this might be to just press the power button and shut the laptop screen (meanwhile holding option or whatever to make sure you boot into Windows) so that windows thinks the 22" is your only display.

go into display settings in windows, and switch the screens around by clicking and dragging the 1 display into the 2 position, that should swap them around.

In regards to changing the 1 - 2 displays, it seems that when i drag the #s over, the entire blue screen moves too, and i can't switch the #s on the seperate screens.
