Attachment 28857

With both enabled it is in Extend mode. Selecting Projector only I get only the right monitor on. Selecting Computer only I only get my left monitor on.

(This may be because I have dual video cards, even though they are in SLI mode- YMMV.)

He - I learned something new today - and I figured it out all by myself.
Thank you so much for yout atention.
I found out about the windows+p just yesterday night. Helps a lot and almost solve the preoblem. I still can't do it if the monitor is in my studio and I am in the living room. I must choose which one I want and then switch. Using Nview it was a breeze. Shortcut to switch to next monitor. By the way, this is nothing about SLI. Is about the NView software which is not supported by Windows Vista and Windows 7. Nvidia told me to complain to Microsoft...Maybe I will do that. But thank you again.
