I am trying to get my twin monitor setup working again after replacing one of the monitors which failed
but I can't get the two screens to behave as they should.
The hardware config is:
GeForce FX 5200 graphix card
IBM L150 17" monitor (assigned as CRT-0)
SPV Sunplus TV 21" LED HD TV / monitor (assigned as DFP-0)
When I configure the 21" screen it throws the config of the default monitor out completely
I either have one screen showing correctly with only a fraction of the other visible, or both screens
are unviewable. For exmple, if the default monitor is set to 1024x768 and I then set the new 21" monitor
to it's native 1440x900 the default monitor adopts a resolution of 1280x720 !!.
Conversely if I try to set the 21" monitor to 1024x768 to match the 17" it cuts off two thirds of the screen.
I am trying to use the Cloned option I used successfully before.
