Hi,

I'm using Gigabyte GeForce 8800GT 512 mb and motherboard Asus M2N 1394. I have one LCD Wide 20" monitor and a LCD HD TV 32" wide TV. The problem is i can't make them work both at the same time (to browse inet on monitor and to watch a movie on TV).

In nVidia Control Panel when i try to setup multiple monitors the system doesn't see the TV, only the pc monitor....

I've read that in SLI Mode there is only ONE DVI signal. so in order to get multiple monitors SLI Mode must be off, but how to do that? i've looked for this option in nVidia control panel but i found nothing!!!!

and if i remember correctly my motherboard doesn't support SLI mode


how to enable multiple monitors? please help!!!!

You would need to be using two graphics cards to run in SLI anyhow. What OS are you using? Also, how are you connecting the two monitors to the card? DVI, VGA or S-Video?

What resolutions do you have both set to?
Does the properties (Windows) or NVidia X Server Settings (Linux) "see" both monitors as being available?

Can you use either the tv or monitor separately?
