This 2 monitor deal has me curious, I've tried it and failed

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Stephen Huckaby, Mar 4, 2004.

  1. After reading the questions here on monitors I wanted to
    have a system with 2 monitors. I bought and installed a Geforce
    FX 5700 Ultra. I also purchased a LCD monitor. When I installed
    the card and monitors I noticed something wrong with the LCD. It
    took me a while to first get the monitors working as 2 separate
    monitors versus 1 large monitor spread over two screens - Don't
    know how but I fixed that. Now when I "IDENTIFY" the monitors
    my 21'' CRT IDs as 1 and my 15" MAG LCD IDs as 2. I couldn't
    figure why the monitor's pictures looked odd and I put a monitor
    test picture on the LCD screen. The red was gone. Where red
    should have been it was black. No amount of adjusting would make
    the red appear. I hooked the LCD up to a laptop and everything
    looked fine right off the bat. The red was there. When I hooked
    back up to my desktop the red was gone.

    Would the fact that the resolution and refresh rate is different
    on the two monitors make the red disappear? I have to set the
    refresh on the CRT monitor above 60mhz (usually I set it to 85 or
    100) because I seem to be sensitive to the flicker. The refresh
    of 60 on the LCD doesn't cause flicker and doesn't bother me.

    ANY advice welcomed. BTW, I tried to install drivers from the
    LCD's web site, but couldn't get them to install.

    Advice please!

    more than likly its a bad conection/bent pin or a color profile problem.
    have you tryed a color profile for your monitor? go to color managment and
    try a few of the default ones and see if red comes back.

    Agreed. It's prolly the pins. If I recall correctly, there're specific
    pins for each R G and B.
