I was also told to check Windows Update, Windows is 100% up to date, so that doesn't help either.

Forget this forum, I shouldn't have signed up. Worthless. Good day.
I said "might." I can't be wrong like that. That means could be or could not be. 100% covered either way. You were told to try to force a res and/or locate the monitor .inf.

Here's another way for good measure...modify the video card driver .inf.

Hummm .. Too bad .. I would have liked to see two independent screen shots of each monitor.

I know that W7 has to be able to see the monitor .. Which is causing me fits with my KVM setup.
I'm now wondering if W7 can handle two different monitor types at the same time.

Sure it can. Look at my specs.

Maybe the op is running with a vga cable instead of dvi, messing things up.

I'm currently running my W7 to a 24" 16:10 ... and a 20" true 4:3 .. but both are Samsungs.

Windows updates gave me a new video card driver ... But I didn't take their Samsung update .. Yet
I'm still running VGA because of my KVM setup ... sharing two computers.
About the only thing that impresses me about W7 is how good my displays look.

How about 3 at once,

Dual Monitors, Monitor 2 "Blurry" Incorrect Resolution-triplemonitor.jpg

From right to left,

32" Westinghouse LCD TV at 1366x768 - running of my onboard HD3200
22" Acer LCD at 1680x1050
19" Acer LCD at 1440x900 - both Acer's running off my HD4830

One thing I noticed from mthoene's screen shot, in both cases it shows the monitor as "Generic non plug and play". If that is the case then then he needs the driver/inf for the monitor(s) for them to display properly. Check both HannsG and Acer for them, or if available through Windows Update.

P.S. This is one of the few types of driver I would recommend through WU; don't ever install a video driver from there, always get them from the card manufacturer.

Interesting screen shot and Info.
There are a couple of other problems, or handicaps, in Windows 7 ...
that puts me in a Foul Mood also.

But, I hear that SP1 is due soon .. So I'm going to wait.

I wonder if he's having better luck with M$

Noyb, Windows 7 doesn't have handicaps in relation to video, drivers or anything like that.

I know ... It's the removal of the good tools found in XP .. And some User interface problems.
W7 is just too unfriendly to use for any serious work ...
Probably because I've been spoiled by XP .. But let's don't go there.

It's alright. I find Win 7 to be the most configurable, usable and plain out best OS Microsoft has ever developed for home use.

If you want, let us know exactly what you're trying to do or what Win 7 won't let you do. We can then suggest things to try or advise on things you may not realize are possible with or without 3rd party tools.
