    Can't install Windows 7 to SSD anymore in IDE or AHCI

    You may need to clear your CMOS. Ive lost my OCZ Vertex a couple of times and that fixed it. You will need to check your motherboard manual if you dont know how to do this. It easy as though. While you were in disk management, after you formated the drive, did you make it active? There is an...

    Duel Monitor problem

    Looks to me like a resolution or refresh rate problem. What card are the monitors plugged into and with what plug? Have you looked through all the settings in your graphics card drivers? Is the second monitor a tv by chance?
