k i have searched and searched for this issue, but i recently installed vista 64. i run an 8800 gts to a monitor and my hd tv via component cables. i have it in the cloned configuration, and when i boot a game the tv shuts off, and i am left with just the monitor. with xp, i never had this problem. i having trouble locking the resolutions between the two of them. any help is apperciated.

what's the resolution and refresh rate set at? and what's your hdtv capable of?
ive tried 1024 x 768 wich is how i ran it in xp, ive tried 800 x 600, to no avail. i hooked up my projector and it does the same thing. only happens when running a game. movies and everything else works fine. i think the refresh rate is at 65, not 100% on that, im at work, and i know the tv is capable of 1024 x 768 .
try configuring them indepently.. sounds like your games are set to a higher res than your monitor can support.

DUal monitors of different resolution is a piece of cake in vista, hell i added a 2nd monitor, turned on the pc and it was off and running essentially on it own. lol
i swapped out the 8800gts for 2 9600gt's, sli does the trick, problem is fixed i guess. runs great and looks awesome. only capable of 1080i tho
