Windows 7: Using monitor and TV

Windows 7
Using monitor and TV

Hi folks, need help here.

I switched from XP to 7 lately and to be honest I cant quite manage my graphic card and system.

I have my PC connected to 21" CRT monitor via DVI cable, res 1600x1200, 85 refresh. In addition I have my PC connected via second analog port connected to my Samsung TV in other room (1360x768, 60hz refresh).

How on earth should I manage nvidia panel and displey settings in Win 7 to be able to switch from CRT and set my primary screen to Samsung TV and be able to watch movies???

It was doable in XP but now I cant get with refresh rates, resolution or only wallpaper showing..

please any detailed help with pictures if possible would be nice.

Hi All,

I found easy solution. Its working for now and no blue screen or windows hang up now. Use Windows Key + P to open popup window and choose computer screen only or external screen only.

This is much easier than in Windows XP.
