Dual Monitors Windows 7 64 bit using NVIDIA Card

Recommended Posts

I am curious about the lack of horizontal span in Win 7. I am currently using XP 64 in horizontal span mode. For those of you using dual monitors in Win 7 can you drag the FSX window across both monitors and not have the cockpit have elongated weird looking gauges? In other words does it look like horizontal span in XP? ThanksDon

Do you have wide view aspect=true set in your config file? I use triplehead2go and three monitors and it looks great.

I have a 24 IN Dell WS and an 18 IN Dell Ultra Sharp being driven by the nvidia GTX 460 using win7-64. Looks like this. . . I usually have the AivlaSoft Electronic Flight Bag runing on the smaller monitor and I fool the Ws into looking like a full screen even though I run FSX/accel only in the windowed mode. My resolution is set at 1920 x 1200 32 bit. PMDG737a_x.jpg Ray

I have a 3 monitor setup with Matrox 3H2G. Looks great in full screen mode.Windows 7 Pro 64b, and a GF 8800 GT 512Mb video card. Just make sure you have "wideviewaspect" in your FSX.cfg file set to TRUE, as stated in the Introduction document.

I am just asking about WIN 7 64 bit. I am considering loading this OS. I just want to know if someone can send a screenshot with FSX spanning 2 monitors.

Not possible without extra hardware (e.g. TH2G).

There's a way of doing alright, but you don't resize a single view to span both monitors. You open a new VC view and drag it to your second monitor. You then resize it and rotate the view so that it lines up with your original view. Here's a pic:

Hi Don, I've wondered about this as well.The first question I have to ask is if you have a SLI setup? If no, then you can not do a horizontal span resolution with a nVidia card in Windows 7. You can with an ATI Worried.gif But there is a solution that will unfortunately mean buying another GPU. nVidia still has not figured out or blocking the feature on single GPU setups. If you have a SLI setup horizontal span is possible with nVidia's 3D Vision Surround technology. Here is a link to the site showing the requirements: http://www.nvidia.com/object/3dv-system-requirements-surround-technology.html

DId you have any issues setting up the Matrox 3H2G? I looked at the reviews on Newegg for the Dualhead and there were some issues. ThanksDon

I hate sounding like at AMD salesman but ATI Eyefinity will do this from a single card. I will say though that it does distort the side views somewhat.I run 4x monitors, 3 as a main view and one mounted above for FSC and films. Runs well, but again it can distort the view.
