Quad Monitors and Vista... RRS feed

  • I have quad monitors and have them in a cube.  In vista my top left monitor pushes down on my bottom left monitor there for making it to small of the last row of icons.  If i put everything on the top monitor it works fine but i would like it to work on the bottom left.

  • Hi Sloter,


    I cannot open your links to view the pictures. Please give us detail description of your question.


    Meantime, you may try to upgrade your video card for both display adapters, 




    Also please download the driver and utility for the monitors.




    You may install the latest driver and configure the monitors in the utility.

    Sorry about the bad links, i have fixed them.  Also i did not know i had to install the monitor utility but i will do that as soon as i get my top left monitor back.  I had to return it due to pixel issues and it should be here Wednesday.  I will post back updating you.
