No problem Mike.

This can help show you how to fill in your System Specs (see How to - System Specs). The free program Speccy is good to help ID your system information.

Hi there!

I'm having a bit of a problem, perhaps you'll be able to help me out:

I have 2 Samsung monitors, a SyncMaster 740N and a 2243LNX connected to each output of a 9500GT (I'm using DVI-VGA adapters on both), I'm running the first on 1280x1024 and the second on 1680x1050 resolutions, but I have a problem: I want to run one on 16bit color depth and the other on 32bit. But this seems impossible (changing the color depth of one also changes the other, even though in the configurations menu they claim to be in the dephts I setted them independently).

So.. any thoughts?

PS: I'm running Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise with SP1.

Hello ZippoLag,

I haven't tried it myself, but you might check in your NVIDIA Control Center settings to see if you may be able to set a different color depth per monitor.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Anyays, no, I had already tried that too, it's the same as if I were to use Windows's menus..

Hello Mohaman,

Yes, but using one with 32 bit would give you better color depth quality.

Hope this helps,
