Ok, pretend you are explaining this to an infant.
#1- System settings > Displays is reading as one big laptop screen.
I have 2 screens, both different sizes. I cannot, for the life of me, get "Displays" to read that I have two screens. Whenever I seem to change something in nvidia-settings, either one screen or the other stops working or goes white. Also, my main monitor, HP 2511x, does not look up to par. The resolution is set to 1920x1080 like it should, but it doesnt look crisp and when I watch a movie or scroll the internet there are lines on the screen. I think it needs a driver.
#2- I think I got the nvidia driver to work for my GTX570. If I did, it was just by typing random commands into the terminal because I have no idea what I was typing, I was just trying random bits and pieces of what I was reading online. Is there a way I can overclock my hardware (CPU, GPU) in the OS or will I have to do it through the BIOS?
3#- Will I need any other drivers or anything like it for my new setup? Alot of this is kinda confusing, I might have jumped into the deep end a little early, but then again, it doesnt seem like there is a shallow end. Any and all help is appreciated. Remember, start from square one and assume I dont know anything, lol. Thanks.
