I've tried it but whenever I click anything in the second monitor the game minimizes even though I get my normal desktop display on my 19". My settings are set to extended display and I'm guessing that's the reason this happens but are there any settings I can change to make this possible. Basically having the 2 monitors be independent of each other.
You don't want to extend your display, you want them independent. control panel, Hardware and sound,setup multiple displays,or could be under you Nvidia control panel, make one display your Primary.
If you can't do that download Ultramon and try that, it is free to try but even when the trial runs out your settings stay the way you had them.
I am typing this on one monitor and watching fullscreen movie on another
