All right so i have two acer p221w lcds hooked up to my 8800gt. What i want to do is configure the card so vista sees the two displays as one. By that i mean that instead of having two separate displays the picture will be stretched across the two monitors at a resolution that is both of them combined (sorry if thats confusing). I remember being able to do this with two crts and xp, i could run my desktop and games across the two (aka i could play cod4 at 2560X1024 and have one montior take half and the other take the other half. I dont see and option that will let me do this in the nvidia control panel anymore . Does anybody know how i can get this to work? I would like to be able to use both of my monitors for games. Im running 178.13.
Grrr.... just installed 181.20 and i didnt get a span option, im still stuck with dual-view, clone, and single. This took me under 15 seconds to set up with xp, why cant i do it in stupid vista (oh and ps this works fine for me in linux )
Well now im starting to get pissed off. Apparently nvidia DROPPED support for horizontal spanning in vista because of "incompatibles with dwm". REALLY? . Apparently ati and matrox cards have no problem with spanning in vista. This is complete bull, my 240$ monitor is now useless for gaming, all because of nvidia being too lazy to fix their friggin drivers
You can return the card and get a Radeon. Or you can sell the 8800GT and get a Radeon if you really want that in vista. But that costs a lot so the best option would be install xp and play the game under xp.
