Why cant i extend my screen

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello i have a 6950 with the latest drives installed and every time i try to extend my screen a message pops up and says "Theses settings can not be saved please try new ones" This is really getting on my nerves so please help I tried re installing the drives and it still didn't work. If it matters one display is from hdmi and the other is dvi

Where are you trying to set this? In the Catalyst control center or in Windows' display settings?

Ok so you have HDMI on your first monitor? Use a DVI cable instead.

You need to connect both monitors with DVI for dual monitor to work, because HDMI will restrict the signal to just one output on some video cards.

Try it, let us know how it goes.
