Two screens problem



I've got a new monitor that supports HDMI but no DVI. It came with DVI
to HDMI cable though. As my graphics card (NVidia) has 2 DVI
connectors I connected my new monitor using that cable. The old one is
connected to the other DVI and that monitor has got a DVI connector.
No when I switch the graphics card to Dual View I've got a problem.
While the new monitor set as Primary displays in the right resolution
the old one seems to have a problem with doing that. In the properties
window where it says "select the display you would like to change" my
now monitor can be nicely selected but the old one says "monitor_name
+ DVI" Problem is even though it's set to it's highest resolution it's
not showing whole the screen. I know that because of the background I
placed on that screen. It's cropped. Also when I connect the new
monitor via VGA cable the problem goes away and in properties window I
don't see that "+DVI" bit any more but I'd like to use the HDMI if
I've got an option to do so. Any idea haw can this be fixed?




my suggestion is
for you to use vga
cables for both
monitors connected
to the pc.

hdmi would be ok
if you had a 50 inch
tv / panel.

It's 28inch so I thought it's worth trying if I get a better quality
for my Blue-ray movies.

HDTV resolutions (1080p) may be treated differently than computer resolutions.
There may be additional controls for overscan/underscan or aspect
ratio setting, which cause less than the full screen to be displayed.

Nvidia no longer has good documentation for this, so if the Nvidia
software has the "New Control Panel", you'll have to work through
that panel yourself. I cannot find enough pictures of the panel
to guide you.
