{EDIT} i got it working by useing this driver http://nvinject.free.fr/files/Latest_NVinj...0.2.1_512Mb.zip {END EDIT}




this is what i have in the system profiler,


NVIDIA GeForce 7300 SE:

the card has a vga & a dvi out, the vga out works but the screen plugged in to the dvi out is just off,


is there a way i can extend my desktop so i can have apps open on the 2'nd screen?


i'm a noob to OSX & driver installs, or editing settings, so any help would be most useful in baby steps :)


thanks for your time in advance

Im useing NVinject at the moment, but i can chainge it for Natit, all of them just enable the first screen, below is my plist info for the driver,

first check:

when you press F8 (to see all spaces when spaces is enabled) do you see 4 screens or 8?

if you see 8 altho your spaces is set to 4 then that means you have a second screen enabled,


the only way i succeeded in activating it is by connecting the second screen and turning it on before you start your computer so in boot time it will detect it asuming your installed kext support it.

hope this helps.

I am also having problems with dual-screen on Leopard with my 7300LE. I'm currently using Natit, and I can use either my DVI or VGA port, but not both.


I don't quite remember, but I think I had dual-monitor working in 10.4.9 with Diabolik's natit dual 0.2.

any ideas?

I have Gigabyte nVidia 7300LE 128Mb PCIE DVI output.

I have only one monitor but it works on any output.


MacOSX 10.4.9



All works fine!

QE/CI, rotations

GioFX OpenMark 920fps.
