I have just purchased a new 24" monitor which i have connected with my existing 22" monitor so i have duel screens running, I have a GTX260 Core 216 graphics card, The 24" runs at 1920x1080 and the 22" should be running at 1680x1050 but the monitor displays "Out of Range" if the res is knocked back to say around 1440x900 it works, When i was using the single 22" i had no problem using the 1680x1050 resolution.

I am wondering is this an issue with the graphic card? I don't believe its a driver issue as i have got all the latest drivers.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers.

Hmm are you sure the issue is not with the refresh frequency selected for that resolution ?

So with the double monitors you have no trouble running the primary at 1920x1080, and when you run a single you have no trouble getting the 22" to run at 1680x1050, but when they're together the primary runs at 1920x1080 but the secondary cannot run at 1680x1050?

That seems bizarre. Check that the monitors' drivers are correct and up to date as well as for the 260. You could go into a computer store and ask them to test them for you on two of their monitors.

That is correct.

I have never come across this nor has anyone i know, I asked at my local computer store where i purchased the card and most of my parts, they seem to think its a graphics card issue and told me to test with other monitors, I have not had a chance to do this as yet.

It sounds like it's trying to force the secondary to run at 1920x1080 which it doesn't support. Check the drivers regarding dual monitors and see if its trying to force the same resolution on both monitors. I haven't used nvidia drivers in a while to give a better theory.

In your nVidia control panel, make sure you don't have the displays set to "clone" mode, as that will display the exact same image, same resolution and everything on both displays, which your second one obviously cannot support.

Its not in clone mode, but thanks had no idea about this option.

I just tried running the 22" by itself again at 1680x1050 and it seems it cannot even do that anymore! maybe it is a monitor issue after all

Ask them if you can bring in your rig and test it on their monitors. The place where I bought my stuff has a full benching area with benching racks, equipment, and a bank of 30" monitors.

It shouldn't. Windows should recognize the resolutions of the individual monitors and run them as such. After all, thousands of other people on the internet run similar setups, so it's not like it's a one-in-a-million kind of setup.

Maybe i will just take it in, I've had no luck so far. See what the shop can do if worse comes to worse its either a replaced gpu or forking out for a new monitor.

Thanks guys for all the input, really appreciated.
