dual display, one horizantal, one vertical

Hey guys,

I need to use two displays and one must stay vertical. We are having trouble with the drivers to rotate one display. I'm currently abroad and don't have a chance to try, but a friend is trying with no success..

We're using winxp and looking for a graphics adapter / driver solution for this.

Thanks in advance.

The monitor typically signals the graphics card that it has been rotated, and the video card's drivers take care of the rest.  If this doesn't work, there is software called PivotPro which handles this: http://personalcomputing.portrait.com/us/products/pp_overview.html.

thanks callandor

I'll try the software you mentioned. In our situation it's a special billboard monitor, which doesn't have it's own drivers or pivot control hardware. Graphics cards' drivers handle the rotation well when it's just one display, and the trouble begins when we go dual. I'll pass the info about pivotpro to my friend and wait for him to try it.
