Problems hooking up 2 monitors on 9600gt

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So, if anyone can help, you'll be golden .

I have a Samsung 226BW (22" 1680x1050) and a Dell E207WFP (20" 1680x1050)

When I plug them both into my 9600GT, the 226bw is recognized as being my primary and is on and working. Then, when i go to my nvidia control panel to set up the dual monitor display settings, both screens go black and then thats it. No color ever appears on either screen again. So, anyone that can help me get this working... please

Thanks,
GeekMan

Does the Dell monitor show anything when you boot up your rig? Make sure the connector on the card or the cable isn't bad by switching them around with the Samsung monitor. Also, install the latest drivers if you haven't already.

Well, they can both work independantly if i go to the nvidia settings control, click on nview display settings and change the display from the 226bw to the dell, it will turn on the dell and turn off the samsung. I cant get them both working at once though

Probably not the problem, but have you installed nview yet? If not, try it...

That's all I got ...

Well, my first major issue is that both displays dont show up under my display properties (Right click desktop > properties > settings) They are both powered on and connected though and, through nview, i am able to switch between the two displays.
