Yes, there is something else I would really like your help on not sure if this would be the correct thread to post it on but here goes.

I have 2 ips monitors set up to run on one cpu, the main one is plugged into the DVI port whilst the other is plugged into a vga port. What happens is sometimes the second monitor just blows out the colors and make it looks whiteish. I used to had use the NVIDIA control panel to adjust this and it would work but NVIDIA controls in the system tray doesn't appear any longer.

Is there a way for me to get the monitor running properly permanently?

Thanks in advance for your help

what have you tried so far....

swapping monitors?
swapping cables?
changing ports?
using monitor on another PC?
have you downloaded the latest nVidia driver from their website? (that should also resurrect the nVidia Control Panel)

what is the make/model and age of the monitor?
what is the OS?
