Default Dual View Monitors

Ok, so I just set up my pc with dual 20" monitors that are exactly the same. I'm running a GeForce 7900 GT KO. The LCD monitors say that I can get a 1680 x 1050 resolution, which I can, but at that resolution the desktop does not fully fit onto the monitor and the monitor keeps telling me to set the resolution to 1680 x 1050 (which it already is). To get to the rest of the screen (about an inch) I have to scroll my mouse over and then the desktop moves over. Is there something that I am doing wrong? The manufacturer says that the video card is easily ample to handle that resolution. Any ideas?

Default Re: Dual View Monitors

you have to think of the screen as one huge one your actually trying to run a max res of 3360x2100. I reccomend using a prgram called ultra mon for multi-monitor pc's as it makes everything so much simpler and has some good extra features (you can download a trial from the site or get it from less legal methods either way awesome program and you should try it instead of the crappy nvidia version
