2 Mointers Help!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, i have just found my old 15" LCD moniter under my bed and i was wondering if i could have to mointers going at the same time i have already tryed it but my main one ( 17" ) is the only one that works!

I have tryed going into the nVidia control panel and switch to clone but that didnt work!

My max res on my old one is 1024 X 768 and my one i am useing now is 1280 X 1024

I have tryed changing the res to both of them to 1024 X 768 but the old one is not working!

Also when it is in the BIOS loadup it shows the picture for like 0.5 secs its almost like it is hesetating to have a picture (this is my old one)

I know its works because i have used my Xbox 360 onit before.

P.S i am using Windows Vista

Thanks for your time!

why do you want a clone? I use my monitors to extend my desktop when im doing 3d work. I havn't done it for a while to be honest because my 20.1 usually has all the room i need. But if I remember correctly it was a pain trying to get diffrent size monitors to run at theres own native resolution. If your GPU has the ability for multi monitor I'm sure the problem can be resolved.

right click on your desktop and click properties. go to the settings menu, click on the second monitor and check the box at the bottom, then reboot.
