Windows 7: Excel does not show gridlines on both monitors in a dual monitor setup

Excel does not show gridlines on both monitors in a dual monitor setup

Interesting problem,

I have a AMD Radeon HD 6300 series adapter, running windows 7 x64. I have a dual monitor setup, the same monitor on each port an Acer S230hl. One port is an HDMI the other is a VGA. the issue i have is that when i have a worksheet open i can see the gridlines to the cells on the HDMI connected monitor, if i move the sheet over to the vga monitor the gridlines are so light i cannot make out the different cells. it looks like one clean sheet of white paper. i tried different contrast and brightness settings and no luck. anyone have some ideas, or maybe had the same problem and found a fix?

thank you.

that won't work because the lines are there you just cannot see them. if i move an excel spreadsheet from one monitor accross to the other they disappear. if i take a screen shot and your monitor shows the sheet correctly you will be able to see the gridlines as well.

I do understand what you are saying.

But have you tried to take a screenshot? We just need to rule that out 100%.
