Thanks - how come both say they are teh main display.
Only one should be your main display, preferably DSG TV

After this, I don't think I can be much more help - your new monitor is working well now.
If you want to leave this open to see if another member can help with the old monitor - that's fine.

Oh sorry, I've sent two screenshots where they are each the main display. He's a screenshot of the older monitor when the newer one is set to being the one only to display.

With that change, does your new monitor function well?

I think this issue is solved - you did great!

If you're going to use both monitors, then that's a different issue.

I do intended to use both monitors, but it is indeed a good start. I'll leave the thread open a little longer, see if I can get any more help with the second, but thanks for your help nonetheless. We've solved one problem and the second one is closer - I'm getting another HDMI cable and a HDMI -> DVI adapted between the 6th and the 9th, so if that helps at all I'll post it here.

Try cleaning off and out the ports they could have oil from your fingers on them smudging the picture.

Hey - how would I go about cleaning the ports? I don't want to damage them and don't own one of those air gun things.

Final update - so my new cable and hdmi - dvi adapter arrived yesterday. I plugged them both in with no change. However, this morning when I restarted, both screens were functioning perfectly. I tried swapping out a cable, just to be sure, however it seems my graphics card just wanted both monitors to be EXACTLY the same, settings-wise. Going to mark this as solved, thanks again for your help.

I wanted a monitor larger than my 22 inch Samsung but reasonably priced 23 inch or 24 inch monitors wouldn't have made much of a difference and a 27 inch monitor was more than I wanted to spend. I had read lots of articles about using a TV as a PC monitor so I was forewarned about the text...
