2D surround resolution issues

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just got my second 460GTX in the mail and went ahead getting my 2d surround setup working

Problem the resolution it continues to default to. is far lower than it should be. 3x 22" monitors should do 5040x1050 However the best resolution i seem to be able to acheive is 3840x1024 This is driving me up the wall!

The monitors are not matched but all are 1680x1050 native 22" panels. the sync polarity of the monitors is unknown.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. i need native res!

Ok heres a find.. my Acer and Chimei panel both natively run the same sync polarity +/-, The Phillips on the other hand runs natively with the opposite -/+

However the phillips will allso run +/- if i force it to with a custom resolution.. i believe Nvidia surround is failing to detect and correct this and is just lowering the resolution to compensate.. as i dont think the monitor displays 1680x1050 +/- as one of its supported resolutions. hence nvidia surround does not detect it

And the issue is i cannot for the life of me figure out how to force this.

In order for surround vision to properly work, all 3 monitors must have identical sync polarities. (and preferably identical native resolutions...less headaches)
I had the same problems with non-matching monitors.

As said, All 3 monitors MUST be the same in terms of tech (same refresh/resolution/sync).
Most likely, your monitors only match when it comes to 1280x1024 on all of them, and they don't match on other, higher, resolutions.

If at least 1 monitor does not match, you won't be able to run surround correctly.

Your only option is either getting a matching monitor instead of the Phillips monitor, or go to eyefinity (aka AMD cards), which support different monitors setup.

The interesting thing here tho is that the Phillips DOES support the same sync. however it is not its default, i have tried to hack the EDID to make it the default but with no sucess.

The strange issue tho is when i hit apply on the surround. 2 monitors allways function at 1680x1050 temporarilly before it detects the error and snaps to the low resolution. The odd thing is.. the one that goes black is entirely dependent on which card its plugged into, its not the same monitor every time
