I am on a sony vaio vgc-rb44 Desktop using xp32 with upgraded psu (430w thermaltake) and upgraded RAM ( 3gb total ) and an upgraded graphics card ( Radeon HD 5550 ). My primary monitor is a samsung B2030 using analog VGA coming out of the hd 5550 and my second monitor is a Dell 1907 fpv using a DVI digital cable coming out of the hd 5550 also. my samsung B2030 is 1600 x 900 compatible whereas my dell 1907 fpv is 1280 x 1024 compatibile.
SIW is saying that my Dell monitor is set at 1600 x 900 whereas my AMD catalyst control center is saying that the dell monitor is set at optimum 1280 x 1024. XP is also reading that the dell monitor is set at optimum 1280 x 1024 and XP is also reading the samsung is set at optimum 1600 x 900. Speccy is reading the dell both as the primary monitor as 1600 x 900 and it is also reading the dell as the second monitor set at 1280 x 1024. GPU caps viewer is only reading the primary monitor (1600 x 900). why oh why is SIW falling off the bus?
Anyone know of the best tried and true application other than SIW or Speccy or GPU Caps Viewer to find out just what my settings are for my dual monitor setup?
