I recently upgraded Windows 7 pro and am running 2 monitors an old 17" Tatung LCD and a 24" Samsung 245BW.
Previously while running XP and XP64 i was able to choose a mode in my nvidia control panel that says configure monitors independenty. this option is no longer available.
What is happening is that when i run a game full screen, my second monitor flickers then adjusts for the resolution of the game that i am playing skewing the view of that screen. when i exit out it reverts to normal.
since i am using extended desktop i believe that it essentially is attempting to force the resolution onto my second screen. previously in xp and xp64, when entering the game at an adjusted resolution, due to the screens being "separately configured" the primary monitor adjusted resolution while the 2nd remained perfect.
I am wondering if there is a way to "configure" these monitors independently or possibly lock or separate my secondary screen from being attacked to my primary screen.
I have tried using ultramon but i could not get it to do what i wished.
I may be totally mistaken or blinded by a simple fix, or possibly it may not be a feature availabe in 7. any advice would be extremely helpfull
my specs if needed.
