OK, no bad caps and the fuse checked out ok but it's dead..
It went back to the recyclers. But it was neat to play with while it worked, and peaked my interest on a dual monitor setup.
I tried using my 19" Dell non widescreen as a second monitor and it was a less than satisfying experience because of the scaling issues.

So, If I get another widescreen monitor, say a 24" it'll scale ok with my Samsung 22 as long as they are both widescreen running at their respective native resolutions right?

Use dualview instead of extending the desktop and you will be able to run the monitor resolutions independent of one another


EDIT: Oh wait I see what you mean. In terms of window sizes and such when you move them over from one screen to the next :p

Ya, I'm just researching monitors and I think I'm going to get a 24 Samsung and I want to make sure when I move a window over to my 22 Samsung it'll scale right ( it did with the 24" tv that was also 1900X1200) so I figure it'll work .

It'll work. I have my 20" next to my 22", both running 16x10 without issues. And as you said, it auto-scales the windows in relative size when you slide it. No wonky size issues.

And I agree, it is pritty nifty to just whip a window over. I usually keep my windows sidebar, temp monitor, msn/irc open on it. Handy for sure!
