I have a 40in tv and a 22in monitor, right now i have them set as dual monitors. Now my 22in is set as number 1 and my tv is as 2. Now if im trying to play a game in full screen it will only do it on the 22in. Now if i do alt-enter to make it out of full screen i can move it to the tv, but if i hit alt-enter again it will move the game to the 22 monitor then make it full screen. so is there a way to make the game play on the tv full screen. Now i have made it so the tv is number 1 and the monitor is number 2 and that works.
But i do not like that becaues that means the startmenu is on the tv and it is too small to see.

Here is a pic so you know what is 1 and what is 2.

Easiest way is to run the game in windowed mode, drag it over to your TV, and maximise it.

right click on your desktop>click on the nvidia control panel>under the "display" there are sub menus and goto>set up multiple displays "select the you want windows to use a primary" and " select the display you would like to use." apply and that should be it.

1 is default tho...

you can do this with Ati's catalyst or Windows' own display manger. Just tick the box "use as primary display" and extend ... its under settings...

I haven't come across not being able to make it widescreen - just change the resolution the game runs at

ok that works but, evertime i startup something it puts it on the tv. This is what i do with my setup. i use the monitor more then the tv. when i use the tv is when im playing games or watching videos. Like if im on a website and there is a video all i do is move the window over to the tv and make it full screen. Now when i play games i have to make the tv primary. i just wanted to see if there was a way so i did'nt have to change anything when i want to play games.

Dood, you got warez on your desktop and a screenshot to prove it. Might as well paint a bullseye on your forehead.

haha all im doing is downloading demos. :) 
July 29, 2008 9:19:08 PM

Demos? I see... Power ISO 3.8 with a keygen, and a copy of what I'm going to assume is The Bucket List, both downloaded with that BitTorrent client that you have a shortcut to on your desktop. Demos indeed :p
