Help me please.


I have been battling the stupid issue with a secondary monitor for weeks.
I have dual Viewsonic LED monitors the primary works just fine. As soon as I hook a secondary on the resolutions dont match. I have to scale down from 1920x1080 to 1620x1050 so the screens fits in the monitor other wise the borders go over the monitor. Also the icons look bigger as if the monitor is not running on the same bit resolution.
I can hook up other monitors and it works well so is not the video card. Also i swap this monitor twice so is not the monitors ether... It am sure it has to do with nvidia drivers. Please help.

Thank You.

Sure.
Change the stupid default settings of the monitor from AV mode to PC. I have no clue why ViewSonic is doing that.
