Multiple monitors and vista MCE

  SteevWatson 15:09 24 Oct 2006

I have vista running on my media centre PC. I have it plugged into my HDTV using the DVI out on the graphics card and into my old CRT monitor using the VGA out. Everything works fine doing general tasks such as web browsing etc but when I launch Media Centre it loads on the TV but half the monitor goes Black and everything freezes. Has anyone else had a similar problem?

Media centre works fine if I'm only using one display either the monitor or the TV but not with two.

I probably should have mentioned my system spec is

Athlon 64 3200
Geforce 7300GT

Have you configured Media Center in Vista yet? That way you can select which display u will be using to watch movies and TV. So if its your TV ur using, just select that, the cable connection the resolution and then you are away. Then hopefully the other screen wont go black and wont freeze...remember Vista is in its testing stage so dont expect it to be perfect but it will work...just go thru the set up and u should be fine.
