I have a Gainward Geforce 6800 and a Gainward PCI Fx 5200. i am able to span the desktop across the 3 monitors, but i cant seem to clone the same image on all 3 displays. Is there anyway to do this with nview or any other way other then just splitting the video signal from one output?

Thanks

I was able to find a software program that will let me do this. UltraMon is a utility for multiple monitors that will allow you to "mirror" the image to all attached monitors. Through Nview you can only clone the screen on 1 video card. So I was able to clone the 2nd monitor from the 6800 but the 5200 would only let me extend the desktop. With UltraMon i just installed it, right click on the sys tray icon and choose mirror and start. Im using the 30 day trial now but i think the software is about $30. It looks as though a 3rd party software is the only way to accomplish this.

What? Pay MONEY for SOFTWARE? You're kidding, right? I would never do that!

Ultramon is the way to go.. it has some very nifty features ;)  I am running it in a three monitor setup, so is my girlfriend :)
