oK SO i DOWNGRADED 12.6 driver to the version that came with the card.... 2009.0813.2131.36817
I downgraded because the HDMI audio driver had dissappeared and 12.6 would not reload it so it would show up in the default audio devices in XP. Also the newer XP drivers would not allow you to change between clone, extended mode , etc with two monitors while the older version will as well the HDMI audio driver being consistent.
So whats the problem you ask, its a minor one. Tinkering around trying to get the two monitors and HDMI audio driver to work somehow in the LH info bar with all the text in CCC it now shows my main monitor as DIGITAL PANEL (DVI) 2 instead of number 1 as it has always been.
In Display manager window it is shown as number one but as two in the LH column. Any additional monitor/tv becomes number three in the left hand column where it was two before. In Display manager / boxes it is shown as two.
This is a small thing I know but aggravating still..........have removed the driver and used driver cleaner and then reinstalled, unplugged the main monitor and it is the only one plugged it but it still shows 2 in the LH column...........
Any help here would appreciate it.........have searched the internet to no avail. Most talk about the Display Manager boxes and mine are fine but not in the LH info column.
