Please refer to question below for further details:

 I need anyone with an Nvidia Card using Vista to confirm the following
- card make and model (Who is the actual board manufacture)
- Which driver version
- Do you have the dualview option - the one that allows the start bat to run across both screens

I will award 50 points to each person who posts this info - Thank you

I also have dualview as an option, but what you want is a horizontal span which is not an option I have seen on any card in vista.

I have the Nvidia Quadro FX540.
I have the "Extend Desktop" option to use multiple monitors on the "display settings" option.
The Nvidia Control panel gives additional options such as clone

KCTS I don't belive you answered my question very well.
The board manufacture is not Nvidia and I asked:
- Do you have the dualview option - the one that allows the start bar to run across both screens
Its called "Horizontal SPAN"
I need this information to resolve my issue but unable to award points now
