Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Gerard Verhoef, May 21, 2004.

  1. Hi
    I have a fx5600xt (MSI) with the latest whql driver (56.72).
    I use a 15" TFT monitor on the regular analog socket as the primary
    display and an old 17" CRT monitor on the digital socket (using the
    provided digital to analog plug) as secondary display.
    I prefer to use only one monitor for regular computing (faster and less
    energy consumption) and both monitors only when convenient (mainly

    I cannot find an easy way to activate or deactivate the second monitor.
    It takes seven mouseclicks to run through the necessary menu items to
    get this far. Strange thing is, I cannot find a user defined hotkey for
    this specific action either.

    Before concluding that there is no easy way to get this done, I thought
