Unhappy NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 multiple monitor not working...

Ok, got this new card, very good so far, 128mb TV out, VGA and DVI. I dont use the TV because I just watch movies on my computer screen, anyway, I have one monitor connected to the VGA output, and the DVI to VGA adapter in the DVI output, I have two monitors connected, but it clones the screen, so I have two screens with the same thing on them. I want to be able to have things on one screen and other things on the other, how can I do this?!


Please help me as it cost me a bit of money!

Many Thanks

James

Default Re: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 multiple monitor not working...

I don't know about the 5500 but on my 6600 I have a nView icon on my try, I have to right click that and select my monitor, find the multi display tab and choose between clone/span/etc.

You may beable to access the same menu through the control panel -> display

Yeah I would do that lol butt its only detecting one monitor, I know the DVI output is working because it is cloning it, its just not seeing the other monitor
