Windows 7: dual displays, bit odd,

dual displays, bit odd,

I've put a fresh install of Windows 7 on RC build, whenever it finished the install and had put its own version of drivers on my dual screen setup worked perfectly, but when i updated my ATi drivers to the latest Win7's but dual screen capabilities vanished. Both screens work fine on their own its just when i try to get them to work together i get problems,,

The screen resolution manager has both screens listed and my cursor will disappear off the right side of the screen as it would do normally on dual setup, but for some reason the other monitor isnt displaying.


Nevermind, ATi had crossfire enabled in the CCC

Someone with ATI drivers will better be able to respond to this but it sure sounds like the drivers are the issue.
Make sure you have the right drivers. Make sure they are for 7. Completely remove current ATI driver setup. Install drivers again.

A quick search here will point you to any discussion about these drivers - I'd search in the Graphic Cards section not the Install section.

And Welcome to SevenForums. Once you've fixed your problem let us know your solution! Then shoot over to the Tutorials - some great stuff there!

I never use the CCC, too many add-on processes and I have no real use for the features. But I guess other people do.
