6950 + 2 monitor woes

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

I recently upgraded my 5770 to a 6950. On my previous setup, I had one 120hz acer monitor and a 60hz dell. When I tried to apply the same settings to the new card, however, the dell monitor will absolutely not turn on unless I changed the refresh rate of my acer, which I'm not willing to do.

Can anyone explain to me why the card is trying to force both monitors to use the same refresh rate when an older model had no problem running them independently of each other?

going to guess you barely skimmed my OP (why is beyond me considering it's 2 short paragraphs)

Suck it up and change the acer one to 60hz.
