Windows 7: Multiple display issue after installing Windows 7

Multiple display issue after installing Windows 7

I had been using a dual monitor setup with a Hanns.G HW-191D 19" LCD and a Cintiq 12WX for over a year on XP without a hitch. Since installing Windows 7, both monitors are recognized but only one can be active at a time. When I change the Multiple Displays option to "Extend these displays" it automatically switches to "Show desktop only on 2". Hitting apply will cause the active monitor to de-sync and the other to turn on as would be expected.

My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce 7950 GX 2 with the most recent drivers. Any ideas what might be causing this or how it could be fixed? Thank you.

it works very well i had it for a months trial and was so impressed i bought it! had no problems easy to set up windows 7 is limited on this type of feature for multi monitors. I hope this will help and give you some insight to duel monitors and the capability's.

Thanks for the suggestion, sadly it does not fix my issue. Since Windows recognizes both monitors but only allows one to be active (inactive monitor de-syncs and turns off) this program cannot see both monitors.

Anyone else had this issue/suggestions? Thanks in advance.

FIXED - Turns out I had Multi-GPU turned on in the NVIDIA display tool. Once the was turned off I could enable dual monitors.
