Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So a friend of mine has just hooked up two LCD monitors to his Vista machine. Apparently Vista detects both displays, but the second monitor remains blank, in sleep mode.
Now, I did the same thing about three days ago and had the same issue but for the life of me I can't remember how I resolved it - I just tinkered around a bit and eventually got it to work. It escapes me how I did it so I can't walk him through it. :oops:
The monitors are not identical, one is a much newer widescreen and the secondary display is an older model, so could it be an issue of Vista trying to run both monitors at a resolution or a refresh rate that is higher than the native resolution of the older display?
He's running an 8800GT with what I think are the latest drivers.
