Dual Monitor Question

Hi

Updated my screen from a philips LCD to Eizo and decided to get another card to run the Philips as a secondary for tools etc

NVIDIA GEFORCE2 MX 100/200 (32MB) EIZO at 1280x1054 32bit 72htz

MATROX MILLENIUM G200 PCI (8MB) Philips at 1024x768 32bit 60htz

I have an error displayed on startup on the EIZO with FV in a box in red showing 85.7htz - this disappears after a couple of sonds and all seems ok.

The mouse pointer now seems to stutter sometimes on the screen.

Neither of these showed up before the dual monitor setup.....

Any ideas

Both are run by analog connections

Re: Dual Monitor Question

the first thing is an issue with the drivers setting too high a refresh initially. It then gets reset by the OS. I'm assuming the EIZO is a lcd? If so put it's refresh to 60hz. There may be a refresh override in the driver settings too. Make sure that is also at 60hz.

As for the mouse pointer. I guess you have XP? If so switch off all the fancy mouse effects (shadows etc). These are done in hardware and it's unlikely your matrox can do them.

Other things to switch off are "show windows contents while dragging" and the fade/scroll menus.

Basicly, switch off the eye candy

Re: Dual Monitor Question

Hi

Have got the mouse to operate better.........

Both screens at 60hz but still get the error when powering up.....

Another thing even though the Eizo is the primary screen the system "sees" the Phillips first at startup and this screen has to be on for windows to load.

once loaded the eizo "wakes up" and the user logon screen is displayed and the phillips reverts to the secondary........

Thanks

Re: Dual Monitor Question

dunno what bios you've got and they tend to be different from mobo to mobo and pc to pc.

Usually you press DEL when the pc is first switched on. Then u go into the advanced settings and find the one that configures which display to initialise first (agp or pci)

Found it !!!! It was set to PCI - altered it to AGP and now boots up using Eizo WITHOUT error

Many thanks for your help

Simon

P.S Two screens are great

Re: Dual Monitor Question

Nope.
I'm not bothered though, its a error message I can live with
My second screen is an old crt monitor which is on its last legs, but I find it usefull for files and thumbs.
My main monitor is the one I "work" on, a Dell 20" flatscreen (1600x1200).

Although the crap monitor is useful for seeing how my photos look on other monitors (badly calibrated).
