Nvidia driver issue
Just managed to get a new viglen omnino built onto our CC3 network (Nice piece of kit at a real reasonable price!). It contains a Nvidia 8400GS card to allow dual display. For love nor money can I get it to switch to the DVI port as primary, its set to VGA by deafult and I cannot find anywhere in forceware to change it.
The only time I can get DVI to work is if I connect a projector or second screen to it and clone the primary display. The only downside is that if we stick with the primary display to VGA, the secondary requires an adapter which sticks out further than the side of the casing!
Just a little grumble, but if anyone knows of a way to swapping the displays around theres virtual hob nobs for grabs and I might push to the chocolate ones! :)
Shouldn't this just be in display properties, select the second display and tick the 'extend desktop onto this display' box then click the use this moniter as default box after it has applied to change the primary in Windows (assuming XP given CC3).
Hi Synack, thats not really what I want it to do, I wish the DVI port to be the primary output port on the card. It just shows no signal even from boot. There is no way in the windows settings or forceware to change that I can see.
That is what that does but only for Windows, if the card is picking the VGA first under the BIOS then I don't think you can do anything to change that in BIOS/DOS short of just having a DVI moniter on the card. What is the scenario as it sounds quite confused?
