Dual Monitors

  1. #21

    I tried the beta Nvidia driver 306.2 and now it seems if I d/l anything when screens are supposed to pop up, I hear the two tone sound (as if something gets unplugged and I lose signal, not crashing or freezing my system, just losing the monitor..) so I reverted back to the original driver I had before I ever installed Win 8, the 301.24 (32 bit) ...

    ..and the only way to get the signal back to the HDTV Vizio is to put in the Win 8 Boot disk and like reboot 3 times .. seems to kick start it or something..

    Through all this does anyone think my 8800 GT might be going? Not the cable, thought maybe the software and/or incorrect or bad drivers, but now I'm starting think it might be the video cards itself..

    Took many, many more reboots this morning, had to be atleast 10 before the monitor came on with the reboot ... thinking about switching to the Sony, seems to run better on it.. sighs.

    Good Evening everybody.. I still have never been able to fix my dual monitor problem. I am really disappointed because the main reason I bought the HDTV was to be able to hook my Computer up to it..

    In my NVidia control panel it shows my sony and hdtv(vizio), but I get no signal on the vizio hdtv... so my graphic card recognizes the HDTV I just have no display on the vizio.. any ideas?
