Dual Monitor Screen Resolution Problem

Hey Guys,

Heres whats going on, I have dual monitors setup on my computer. My main screen is a Samsung SyncMaster 933 and my secondary screen is a HP 1740, what is going on is my main screen keeps going to the secondary screen's resolution and i want to stop that from happening every time i boot my system i have to go and adjust my screen resolution. Does any body know how to stop that from happening?


Thanks
RitualJman

Just a quick question. Do both of your LCD's show up in device manager as what they are?

If not you might want to try and see if their are dirvers (.inf files) for them and install them.

They both show up in the Device manager, They are both LCD. Well it was the funnest fix, I thought i would be smart and ran over to local computer shop. I picked up another VGA cable. I used that on my secondary screen instead of DVI and now the whole setup works fine and the resolutions are staying like they should.

Thanks
