I have a dual-head GeForce 2 MX 400... it's 64mb, and with all the drivers in the 20.something versions, I can set up my dual monitors properly. I have one running at 1600x1200, and the other at 1280x1024. I still have the option to max out the second one at 1600x1200, and everything works fine. Anything later than those drivers doesn't allow me to set the primary monitor at 1600x1200, only at 1600x1000 *or something around that figure*, and the second monitor can be set at 1280x1024... I wouldn't really mind if the primary monitor's resolution was proportionate, but I can't stand everything being stretched out. It's really annoying! If I lower the resolution to something that is proportionate, it looks too big for me. Now the question is why is this happening? I mean, I know that it works with older drivers and that means it the card does have the capability. I've been using it for almost a year without any problems. Is there an over-ride method I can use to increase the primary monitor's resolution to 1600x1200 again? I'd like to play some games (like UT2003) but they don't run well with old drivers... I get a lot of artifacts. If I play with new drivers, it runs smoother and looks better. I don't know if it's worth mentioning but everything works fine when there's one monitor attached ... then the newer drivers let me up my resolution to 1600x1200, no problem. If anyone has a workaround or any input, I'd apprecieate it... thanks!
