2nd monitor

Hi folks,
I just hooked a second mon up to my pc. After I hooked it up I went to the display properties, checked the drag my desktop option and apply. My question is ..did I do something wrong because yes I can drag stuff to the second monitor but the size is too big and the colour is all off. Shouldnt the size adjust when you drag it over or is this the way it should be. The second monitor shows nothing on it but a blue screen ...is this the way it should be???

thanks in adv........scanner

You need to set the resolution on the second monitor. Go back into the display properties. Click on monitor number 2 and slide the resolution slider to what the native resolution of the monitor is. If it's a 17inch lcd, then probably 1280x1024, 15" lcd 1024x768, etc etc.
