XFX 7600GT, forceware v93.71
Samsung 225bw 22" Widescreen LCD, 1680x1050 native
HP 1955 19" non-widescreen LCD, 1280x1024 native
Win XP Pro SP2
And I'm trying to do "Horizontal Span" mode from nVidia's Control Panel ... but some how I can't seem to have the displays set to seperate resolutions. It always comes out to be a 2560x1024 desktop, both screens will be 1280x1024, and my widescreen gets stretched.
And worse yet, the 3360x1050 (1680x1050 for both) will give me a "Not Optimum Mode" message on my Samsung, 8O wft?!?, and the hp1955 fine but goes into the panning desktop mode.
On top of that, I can't see any functionaliy to set the positions of the displays either.
At work, we use multiple displays, and I can easily configure the arrangements in Displays Properties -> Settings. But then those machines are using ATI cards ...
So, is it just me or is nVidia's fancy Control Panel missing some crucial functionality?
use the option to configure the monitors independently which is in control panel -> display -> change display configuration. It's the last option on 1.
apply you can also go to the windows display manager thing ( right click desktop then properties). I've only just done this myself looks ace. 19" widescreen @ 1440*900 and 15" crt at 1024*768.
