dual screens

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
i have a 7900gtx in my computer and i wana run 2 screens because i have a spare one.

the problem is my main monitor is a 24 and i have a 17 i wana use for other things.

i mainly want to be able to render to the 2nd screen or use it for photoshop.

but with the standard nvidia software it only lets me mirror my 1st screen to the 17 inch

I agree with R@zor, you should see it in the CP.

I'll link you to a great app for monitor tweaking, good to have. Powerstrip

Right click on desktop > properties > Display settings

And then tick the box that says extend taskbar onto second monitor. There you can choose the resolution for it and everything. Mine doesn't mirror, when i do that

Also a good programme to use is Ultramon

It is not freeware though, you get a 30 day trial and then have to pay for it. However it is worth every dime

I had the same problem, but I had used DualView on my old PCX5900 and when I upgraded to my 8600GT I couldn't find the option! Needless to say I was sad , but as soon as I rebooted with my 2nd monitor attached, DualView was infallible again

+1 rep for R@zor for the perfect answer!
