Windows 7: Two monitors with different resolutions In Windows 7

Two monitors with different resolutions In Windows 7

I have a new Windows 7 system to which I want to connect two monitors. One is a 22" 16:9 format, and the other is a 19" 4:3 format. If I set the resolution for the 16:9 [COLOR=#0072bc !important][COLOR=#0072bc !important]HD[/COLOR][/COLOR], nothing but the 'theme' shows on the 4:3 because everything is off the edge of the monitor. My card has dual DVI inputs. Can my 4:3 monitor be somehow set to show the 16:9 content, or do I have to match aspect ratios.

4:3 = 1280 x 1024
16:9 = 1920 x 1080

Hello hooterdawg,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to set resolution for each monitor in the Nvidia control panel.

2 monitors, different resolutions, don't "fit" together-Anyway to fix?
Hiya. I have a laptop with a 1366x768 res, and an external monitor of 1920x1080. They are set up side-by-side, and the mouse moves from one to the other along the top, but not the bottom. Windows shows the resolutions scaled to pixels next to each other--which means a corner of the bigger...
