Dualview Monitor Issue

    I have a Win XP 2.4GHz PC, running a NVidia GeForce MX440 video card and two
    monitors off it in dualview mode(extend). One monitor is a 19 inch
    Philips(running at 1280x1024 at 60Hz), while the other is a Philips 107s CRT
    monitor(running at 1024x768 at 85Hz) . The problem is, when I restart my
    computer, the CRT always reverts back to 60 Hz, so I manually have to change
    it back up to 85Hz again. I am running the latest NVidia drivers which is
    81.98

    I had both monitors and the same video card running fine on an older 1GHz
    Pentium 3 computer, which was running windows 2000, however installing the
    card into a newer PC with windows xp seems to cause something to screw up. I
    have been fiddling with all the settings in the display control panel, but
    can't get the referesh rate on the CRT to stay at 85Hz.Ayone have any ideas,
    or has this issue happened to anyone else?

    Are you using a KVM or any extension cables?

    Thanks for your reply. No I am just using standard cables. The LCD monitor
    uses a DVI cable, while the CRT that has the problem is using a normal
    analogue cable that came with the monitor.

    Give Ultramon a go (there's a demo version) - very good, vendor
    independent software - http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

    Can you try a different cable, there is a pin that does the pnp response
    that may be open?
    Have you tried tweaking the monitor settings in the graphics driver to
    create a "custom" type?

    Thanks. I actually have just fixed it by using a old windows98 driver for
    the philips 107s monitor.
