I'm using an ACER P244w set at 1920x1050.
I plugged my old samsung CRT and set them as dual views.
the res of the samsung is 1280x1024.

I don't know what I did, but at some point, everything went black and when it reappeared,
the screens ID switched.
Now the ACER is recognized as the Samsung and has a max res of 1280x1024!!
I tried everything, nothing worked.

I desperately need to fix this, as I'm editing an HD movie scene and it's due for next two days.

Even the Nvidia control panel can't see the ACER beyond 1280x1024. I tried t revert all settings, and bring back ACER as the main single monitor, but now it can't go back to 1920x1050...

im using Nvidia 8800 gts 512mb alpha dog

please help

Right click -> Properties -> Settings

Make sure your LCD is in the correct order.

i checked.
the order did not matter
let's say when I do the 'IDENTIFY'
my ACER screen is #1, and the #1 on the drop down list is labelled as "Samsung" and the res is 1280x1024

the #2 is labelled as ACER , which in reality is Samsung, and have res up to 1920x1050 which the samsung screen does not even support.

seems like everything is swapped around//

Why don't you just unplug the samsung...?

did unplug it, but the ACER is stuck with the Samsung identity.

so temporarily , I unplugged both and switched them. it works, but the names are still inversed.
not a big deal, will try to fix this later

now i feel stupid i didn't though of switching their position on the GFX card..

thanks for the help
