Dual monitor setup with r9 280 displays different resolutions on each monitor

Question asked by xberg3rmanx on Nov 18, 2015

I have a dual monitor setup both through DVI.  Both monitor drivers are installed and up to date.  Both monitors are the exact same model number.

 

I'm using an r9 280 graphics card and monitors have previously worked fine.  One monitor can be set at 1920x1080 resolution while the other one can only be maxed at 1600x900.  If I swap which port the cables connect to on the video card then the monitors swap so therefore there is nothing wrong with the monitor.  I attempted to use the CCC to change the resolution and the monitor then goes black and won't display any video saying resolution not supported.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I obviously attempted to restart a few times as well.

 

Another point to add is that the problem started occurring after I plugged my TV in through the HDMI port on the card.  I do not have the HDMI cable plugged in anymore and I attempted to plug it in and unplug it a couple times to attempt to fix the problem.
