FSX Multiscreen help!

Recommended Posts

Folks, I've spent the last few days trying to figure this out and I can't! Please someone help!

I'm running fsx (with sp1 and 2) on windows 7 with a GeForce GTX 970 card. 

My main monitor (set as primary) is plugged in via a DVI port. The 2 other monitors are plugged into the same card, via 2 display port plugs and everything was working fine. The 2 monitors used for pfd/nd and eicas for my home cockpit.

I've just upgraded the home cockpit, plugged everything back in but now the 2 "spare" screens won't work in fsx. Instead of going black and being able to drag the desired screens onto them, they stay in "windows" mode. I'm not using FSX in windowed mode.

Everything is set up, in windowed mode, I can drop them in but I've never had to use that mode. 

What am I missing?

Dan

Is it possible you shuffled the 2 display port connectors and windows reconfigured your screens? If so try switching them back and restore a shadow copy of your fsx.cfg

 

You didn't mention either if you were using Nvidia surround. In my experience you only get full screen across all 3 when using surround, the other screens will just show the desktop like you described if you have them set up as 3 independent displays

I think I've passed the point of no return with the reconfigured screens, I've made so many new cfg's with the plugs different way arounds!

 

I was going to try the nvidia surround, but I need one of the monitors to be used in portrait not landscape due to where they are placed in my mip....
