Q: Windows won't allow same resolution on dual yet identical monitors. This thread is locked from future replies

Using Nvidia GeForce 250 card with dual Envision monitors.  Latest Nvidia drivers for Windows 7 64 bit.
Monitor 1 shows as 'Generic PNP monitor', while monitor 2 shows as 'Generic Non-PNP Monitor'.

I can add a resultion to monitor 2 via Nvidia software, but when selected, Windows reverts to previous resolution.

Monitor 1 sets fine at 1680 x 1050 x 60hz, while monitor 2 only goes to 1600 x 1024 x 60.  The monitors are identical.

This was not a problem in XP, both monitors ( and Windows ) happy at 1680 x 1050 x 60hz.

Any ideas?

Can I disable the Windows resolution setting program so that only the Nvidia has control?

Thank you for any assitance.



A lot of folks on these forums have reported success when using the archived nVidia drivers version 182.  You might want to try them.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
