How many NAME=CUST_MODE, and NAME=CUSTOMDISPLAY are there?

I only found 2, and 4 respectfully, and for some reason, matrox keeps changing my resolution at every re-boot.

Thanks to all of you who have contributed to this fix / work-around. Bravo!

I read through all the posts in this thread, looking for a solution to one remaining problem I am having. When attempting to set up Bezel Management, my 3rd monitor (right most) will go "black/blank" and display the OCD message "No Signal", when I try going passed "60 pixels". If I return the setting to "60 pixels" (or less), every thing is OK. The 1st monitor (left most) works as it should. The 2nd monitor (middle) is uneffected.

Thanks in advance for any help with this.

BTW, here is my setup.

Newest Beta drivers from Nvidia - 267.24 (win7 64bit)
Newest firmware from Matrox - 2.3.50 (table 6.61)
GMX software - 2.06

NOTE TO ALL... GMX software version 2.07 will NOT work for me. Let me be more specific. I can get the 5040 x 1050 to work by setting it through Nvidia Control Panel only, neither Windows nor GMX software see it.

I7 [email protected]
MSI x58 Pro E
OZC Obsidean Triple Channel (3 x 2 GB) 6 GB (7,7,7)
eVGA 8800GTX ( I just ordered a Gigabyte GTX560 Ti SOC - 1000, 4500)
On Matrox DTH2G - 3 x 22" Monitors - (Left) ACER AL2216W (Middle) ACER X223W (Right) ACER ACER AL2216W
1 x 22" Monitor on second DVI connector (Top Middle) ACER AL2223W

Thanks again! :rockout
