Hey guys,

Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong session, I do not yet see myself as an advanced user because al I've done untill now is just googling on stuff and implementing solutions that other users provided.

Since yesterday I have got an issue with using 2 monitors, on one I've got a 17 inch monitor (1280x1024) and the 2nd one is a 37 inch using 1920x1080.

On the first monitor I now have somekind of interface lag, when I click for example applications or locations it takes about 2 seconds to open the menu. On the 2nd screen this is still instantanious. I hope I'm clear enough explaining the issue. I've used the Nvidia settings module to configure this setup. For reference I've pasted my x.conf below:


# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@yellow) Tue Mar 4 20:28:57 UTC 2008

# xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
