So a few weeks ago I had posted that about my dying video card and getting a new one in it’s place. This past week I’ve been trying to get the dual monitor to work on the video card as soon as my husband was able to get me a HDMI to DVI cable converter. I got excited and hoped I can be able to use my tablet again and when I plugged it in and set it up a crap load of technical headaches came pouring in. I had spent a good four hours again trying to get the dual monitor to work to find out that I have to install Catalyst. So I tried to install Catalyst. Over, and over, and over again. It got to the point where I went and ticketed customer support for the video card and while their support staff was doing all they can to help me get the dual monitor set up working, nothing they suggested was progressing me to be able to use my tablet at it’s max resolution.
I do appreciate the customer service for putting up with my frustration and we went back and forth on the ticket for the whole week trying to get this figured out. So I went to do the single monitor thing this weekend to figure out what is going on. Apparently I didn’t uninstall all of the old NVIDIA drivers so it wouldn’t clash with ATI. Of course I tried to uninstall but it wouldn’t uninstall. Let’s see how many times I can use the word “uninstall” in a sentence.
With that in mind I decided to do a fresh reinstall of Windows, (because this current install of windows seemed buggy as heck for some reason) and with the fresh install of Windows I was able to install Catalyst. After this was done I plugged in my Wacom Cintiq and boom the screen went blank for a moment and both screens fixed itself to it’s max resolution. I was able to have my tablet resolution to max. Frustrating cause I had to reinstall my OS to make this video card work properly and to the way I need it to work, but at least my computer won’t be bogged down with any useless things that I don’t hardly use. Although it wasn’t bogged down in the first place.
Just glad to have my tablet back and that I can work on my comics, and art work again.
