    For some reason now I can't seem to extend or duplicate my displays anymore. I am trying to extend from my computer monitor to my tv but I can't seem to get it to work. I can make it show up only on the tv or only on the computer monitor but not both. In AMD Vision control center it tell me

    "This operation is not supported based on current display configuration" - when I try to extend

    "Duplication of displays over multiple graphics processors is not supported" - when I try to duplicate

    The help in the program seems to be irrelevant to my problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried reinstalling your video driver?

    Do you mean uninstalling and reinstalling? I recently updated my drivers.

    Yes, I mean uninstall and reinstall your video driver. Keep in mind that with video drivers, the newest isn't always the best for your configuration. So you may benefit from down grading to an older driver.

    Also, did you update your drivers from the Microsoft update? If you want to update hardware drivers it's best to get them from the manufacturer. In this case from AMD.

    Yes, I got them from AMD. I'll try reinstalling and see how it works.
