4 Monitors for FSX

Hello,
I am running 3 monitors successfully off my eyefinity graphics card and 1 monitor successfully off my on-board graphics card.
The weird problem is that I cannot move any windows from within Flight simulator to the 4th monitor. I can move the mouse, icons and any windows to the 4th but nothing from within the game.

Any ideas why or suggestions will be most appreciated

Many thanks

  1. I would assume since you're running the game off the one card via Eyefinity, it won't allow you to move a window to the other monitor since it's running off another card (or in your case, onboard). So the game is only playable on the three monitors in Eyefinity.
  2. Thanks for the quick response however I am sure there must be a solution to make it work

    There is. Buy a new video card that can handle 4 screens. The 4th one hooked up to the onboard isn't part of your video card, how can your video card manage something that it isn't controlling?
  4. Sorry for the stupid question but if it is not being controlled by the video card then why is it I can move anything else onto the 4th ?
  5. Your onboard graphics card is controlling that screen, not your video card. What video card do you have btw?

    Can you play anything using directX using monitors on both video cards? I highly doubt that.
  7. Can you give me an example of what you mean so I can try ?
  8. It's not going to work.. I'm trying to think of an analogy to make it easier, but it's first thing in the morning and I haven't had coffee yet.

    Right now you are using two different video card, your card, which you haven't named yet, and your onboard video card. You can't play games across two different video cards. Yes, windows will work with it for windows and such, but not gaming. (no one jump in babbling that I'm wrong and start talking about CF/SLI, trying to keep this simple).
