Hey everyone,

I have two questions. The first is: how do I set up bezel compensation? I've been looking at guides and youtube videos on how to do it but I can't see an option for bezel compensation in the Catalyst Control Center. I downloaded the latest software from the ATI website again and still cannot find it.

The next is: Some of the games I play don't support my resolution (5760x1080). Is it possible to create another display group using JUST the middle screen so I can game with a resolution of 1920x1080, and then easily switch between 5760x1080 and 1920x1080 when I want to play different games?

Using a Diamond Radeon HD 5970.

Thanks!

Bezel Compensation IIRC only works right now if all 3 monitors are the same. Otherwise it won't work. You find the option after creating a display group and selecting which monitor is the left, right, and middle. If the monitors are the same, it should then ask you about Bezel Compensation.

As for the second question, I believe if you select 19x10 in CCC, then it will clone all the monitors so you can then just shut the other two off. And then when you want them, just turn them on and select the correct resolution in game.

Hm ok thanks. My middle monitor is actually different from the two side monitors; I was under the impression that if the three monitors were the same resolution I would have no problems with Eyefinity. Thanks for your help!

Alright nevermind, I cloned the three screens, but Modern Warfare 2 keeps "vibrating" at 1920x1080. When I select "Optimal Video Settings," the resolution changes to 1024x768 and stops vibrating. What's happening?

Also, from AMD's website I found this:
Note that to enable bezel compensation, the pixel densities of all monitors in the display group must be within a 5% tolerance of each other.

Since all three of my screens have a resolution of 1920x1080, shouldn't bezel compensation work for me?

Yes it should. But I remember somebody posting about this same problem and just concluded that it's a bug in the driver. As for the other thing, I have no clue as I don't actually have eyefinity, but I was using two monitors and that's what I did :??:  . Sorry I can't help.

Oh wow can't believe I left this out, but I'm in CCC right now and it's reading my two side displays as CRT Analog. I'm using a VGA cable connected to a VGA-DVI adapter to connect the two screens to the 5970 (because the screens only came with a VGA cable).

Could this be causing the problem? Is it worth it to buy DVI cables to try and see if that'll fix it?

Just an update; my two side monitors are now connected via DVI and the problem still remains.

For the resolution problem, I tried to create two different profiles in CCC, one for a 3x1 configuration and one for a single screen configuration. The same vibrating occurs, except now when I click "optimal video" the resolution changes to 1024x768 and then the game is playable (except for the fact that the details are so dumbed down I can't tell the difference between a terrorist and a banana leaf).

Can ANYONE chime in on my problem? :(
