2nd Monitor won't go Full Screen in Avid
2nd Monitor won't go Full Screen in Avid

Hey folks,

For some reason, my second monitor won't go full screen. I cut with only two monitors ie. left monitor is for bins and timeline ect. and right is Full Screen video - I don't use a 3rd client monitor.

It's a bit intermittent i.e.. shutting down sometimes helps. But most of the time it just won't work.

Is this a video card thing?

Any insight would be appreciated.


Thanks!

here are my specs:
Processor 2 x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Memory 6 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB
Software OS X 10.9.5 (13F1096)

MC 7.0.4.3

Are you at 1920x1080 ? Also, have you tried different versions of the Nvidea web driver?

You know the GT120 and 6GB of memory is real marginal?

Good Fortune,
Robert

Thanks Robert! I'm going to give these ideas a try Monday morning.
