Nvidia Cloning => Out of Range error


M

Morten Seeberg

I have a EN7600GT on Windows 7 64bit setup in a clone-screen setup running 2
monitors at 1280x720 60hz (using DVI->VGA converters) and its been working
with cloning on Vista, Win7 32bit Beta using both MS native and Nvidia
drivers.

I then upgraded recently to the final Win7 and switched to 64bit, and since
then I have run into a strange problem.

I can setup 1280x720 60hz on both monitors indiviually (both via Win7 and
Nvidia tool), but the minute I ask Windows 7 (using the Win7 resolution
config page) to clone, both monitors turn off and complains about "out of
range" (just like if you set up a frequency or resolution which they dont
support). But I KNOW they support it since it works individually....
I can also setup up "extended desktop" running 1280x720 on both monitors
simultaneously, no problem.

Have tried driver versions:
- What ever version win7 came with
- 8.16.11.9107 via windows update (nvidia calls this 191.07)
- 196.21 from Nvidia website


Any help/ideas???

Issue resolved. It turned out that even though I was set up for 1280x720
when I changed to cloning, windows for some reason changed to 1600x1200
(which none of my monitors supported in this set up....)

So finally I dragged another monitor to the location, and changed to
cloning, I was then able to set it back to 1280x720. It surprises me again
how idiotic Windows can be :) Who designs a piece of software, which
changed UP in resolution without asking the user, instead of choosing the
resolution the user requested :)
