Long story short, I also have my television pluged in my system (pluged with HDMI and has to be disabled for NVIDIA Surround to work). And when I want to switch from desktop/gaming to television mode, I have to disable my NVIDIA Surround, and make a duplicate of my central monitor to my television. It sounds simple, but really each time it requires a few minutes of messing around because I don't get the good duplicate or what not. Also I need to re-configure my sound system from a headphone+buttkicker system. And then adjust my creative setting to go into my 5.1 system, with 3D surround, dolby etc..
Basically, each time I switch from my computer to the television, I need like 5minutes of configuration. Also changing all of these settings is way to complicated when I'm not home for my girlfriend to do that.
Yesterday I thought I had the brightess idea. I thought I could just create a new Windows user with different monitor configurations and different sound configuration. So when I'd be on desktop/gamming and wanted to go on the TV, I would just "Switch user"!
Thing is, those kind of hardware settings carry over different windows session... .
This is kinda annoying, I was wondering if perhaps you guys had any idea what I could do?
The only thing I can think of right now is having a dualboot with two windows 7 installation.. but [bleep] it's getting complicated just for what I want. Perhaps someone could tell me a quick way to make a that dualboot? Could I just make a copy of my windows folder and then add a line in boot.ini? I'm guessing it can't be that simple, but I'm just asking..
