x1600 PCI-E & 9550 AGP Dual-Card View Help Please

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
ok, firstly i'm not even sure this is possible, but i am looking to be able to play my games on my primary (x1600pci-e) and do work and tasks on the secondary(9550agp). i have tried what seems like every way, when i do extend desktop, it only extends the wallpaper, not the icons and stuff =( i tried this prgrsam called ULTRAMON to do "mirroring". this works, but still when i want to run like WINTV2000 on the 9550 screen, it just freezes when i move it over. thanks for any suggestions on how to fix this peice.

p.s. i already contacted ati with just about the exact same question. i got from them "downoad catalyst and .net framework" hahaha NOOOO CRAP.

well see all my icons are on primary so right now it doesn't work i can only run games on then have another screen with nothing on it except empty wallpaper, but i want to run games on primary (x1600) and then do regular work on secondary (9550) if it's possible

edit: thx for link but that is xplain how to do stuff with ONE video card... it's weird for me in this situation because i am trying two diff style video, so i'm not totally sure yet
edit2: if i can't do how i would like, can sumone just help me with maybe horizontal span setup or something for games.... it's hard to set up for me, thanks alot

Ok, I understand what your trying to do. I tried the same thing a while ago my self. If all your programs are running in windowed mode, it will work fine, but if you are running a full-screen game and you try to click over to the other monitor the game will minimize, as if you alt-tabed it, which sort of defeats the porpuse of having the second screen.

If there is a way to do what you are trying to do, I do not know about it.
