Windows 7: Triple Monitors Nvidia FX570 + FX570M

Triple Monitors Nvidia FX570 + FX570M

Hi all,

I have:

1. T61p (Nvidia FX570M)
2. Advanced Dock with PNY Nvidia FX570 PCI-E card installed.
3. Triple Dell 20" Widescreen monitors

I've installed Windows 7 and the latest Nvidia drivers. The Device Manager looks good, both cards are recognized properly.

The Nvidia Control Panel recognizes everything, but when I try to use all 3 monitors, it only lets me use 2. It automatically disables one of the monitors from the PNY card. You'll also notice from the screenshot that it recognizes 3 individual monitors, but both monitors in the PNY card have a (2) next to them and I'm not sure what that means.

The same thing happens when I try to configure multiple monitors through the Windows 7 Screen Resolution manager.

Also, any monitor connected to the PCI card is noticeably sluggish compared to the monitor connected to the DVI port built into the Advanced Dock.

Any suggestions?
