    What is the make and model numbers of your monitors. Are they identical?

    Full-screen video mirroring is not available for the GeForce 8 series GPUs. You'd have to use GOM player to first run the video and then drag it across to the other monitor's desktop then close it. Then run it and it should open in the other monitor automatically. Then go to Preferences and check the 'Play in fullscreen mode when playing' option under the Playback tab. Then whenever you open a video it'll open in fullscreen mode. That's what my girlfriend does with her 8800GTS setup and it's foolproof.
