Dual monitor resolution nightmare Desktop Scrolls
Posted on 2007-10-03
I have been trying to setup dual monitors for my windows xp system.
The problem now is that when I go to 1680x1050 resolution at 60hz, which the monitor supports, it makes the desktop 'zoomed in'. In other words, it doesn't show the taskbar at bottom, but as I move the cursor to the bottom of the screen, the desktop scrolls down to show the taskbar. It can be scrolled left or right as well.
I have been using this monitor for a while at 1680x1050, so I know it supports it. I tried using the ATI Hydravision software, and that's when this zooming behavior started. I have uninstalled Hydravision, ATI Catalyst Control Center, & the ATI driver. I then reinstalled the ATI driver (I have a Radeon x1300), but it doesn't help the problem.
1440x900 resolution works fine, but isn't nearly as sharp as the 1680x1050 that, up to this point, I had been using. Oddly enough, the secondary monitor displays the 1680x1050 fine, no scrolling needed.
Any ideas on how I can get this back to the 1680x1050 resolution without the scrolling?
