Dual Monitors - cursor changes monitors vertically instead of horizontally

Q: Dual Monitors - cursor changes monitors vertically instead of horizontally

I have an ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9600 video card. It's been working properly for quite awhile and now suddenly the cursor moves to the second monitor when I drag the cursor beyond the bottom of the first monitor.

It used to go from one monitor to the other by dragging it from left-to-right. I can't figure out what caused it to start doing this or how to go about getting it back to the way it was before. Any ideas how to change it back. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

Preferred Solution: Dual Monitors - cursor changes monitors vertically instead of horizontally

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Having just upgraded from XP using the Nvidia dual monitor desktops for years, I was surprised to find Windows 7 has this feature in-built with the added bonus of slideshow desktop images C00L!
So beyond Win7 eye candy which is better, Does it come down to games running faster under the Nvidia dual desktops, what is the general preference here?

A:Is Nvidia dual monitors a poor cousin to Windows 7 dual monitors?..

afaik, there is no real performance difference, as all stuff is handled by the nvidia driver anyway.

And of course the more monitors the higher performance hit as there is more screen surface to work on (the same as increasing resolution).

Btw, the main pityfall of the multiple monitors is that the taskbar is only in the primary monitor, but there are a ton of good third party programs that can handle this, like Actual Multiple Monitors.

Hi! I just upgraded to Win8 this weekend and so far I really like it. I discovered something this morning that now that the weekend is over is bugging the crap out of me and I need help. I work from home and use this alot so it would be helpful.

I am trying to do a couple things I could easily do in 7,
- have Chrome open in both monitors at once with different things on them.
- currently Chrome has no minimize/maximize buttons on the upper right like it used to. Makes it very hard to multitask.

I have 2 monitors, the main is a 23" touch screen and the second is an 18" non-touch screen.

Also, is there a way to have the taskbar to appear at the bottom always like it used to?

Thanks! I really appreciate the help!

A:Windows 8 Dual Monitors, need help having browser open in both monitors

Answered my own question. Google Chrome was showing in App mode. When I downloaded Chrome for 8 there is an option to have it show in desktop mode and the taskbar, minimize/maximize, and multi window option came back. YAY.

Now if someone could tell me why windows 8 won't fill the screen at the resolution recommended for my 23" monitor I'd be good!

I have an ATI 5770 with the 5 mini display ports and am running 3 monitors. The cursor moves across all 3 monitors but stops on the right edge of the right monitor and the left edge of the left monitor. Is there a way I can get the cursor to move to the right from the right monitor to the left monitor and the left monitor to the right monitor? I hope this makes sense.

A:Moving cursor on 3 monitors

Hi, case1!

I'm not aware of any "wrap around" mouse function though others might weigh in differently.

In essence, an extended monitor, whether it is on one, two, three, or even six monitors still constitutes a constrained desktop - just an extended one.

I am using a multi-monitor setup and one of the monitors is a Touch screen monitor. Whenever I press on it, it moves the cursor to that monitor, working as normal. However I would like to make it so it doesn't move the cursor over there when I press there or return the cursor to it's previous position after finishing a touch screen action. Is there a way to do this?
It is a Dell E157FPTe, using EloTouch, and shows up in hardware as a mouse device and not a touch input.
Edit: Just to clarify, the rest of the monitors I'm using are not touch screen monitors. It shows up as a separate mouse device in addition to my regular mouse.

A:Touchscreen moves cursor away from other monitors

Not likely. The touch screen overlay part is calibrated to that monitor so the cursor moves to exactly where your touching it. The X, Y coordinates.

Hey everyone, got a quick curious question here.

I am fascinated by the idea of having dual monitors on my desk. I really want the extra workspace. However, I have a few uncertainties about how it works.

I know the obvious thing: dual monitors give you more workspace on your desktop.

Is it just like an extended desktop where you drag things over to the other monitor for more workspace? In what way is the extra desktop workspace achieved?

Of course I would not come asking without doing my own research...
Several Google results and many pictures are all I have at the moment, which still does not tell me much about the details i seek.

From HERE it states that:




the "exended" or "independent displays" mode and the "spanning" or "streched" display mode. In both these modes, display devices are positioned next to each other in order to create the illusion that the two displays are logically contiguous.Click to expand...

Which basically means the monitors are side-by-side, which is what I want. It then explains more about different ways of using two monitors:



In "extended" mode additional desktop area is created on additional monitors. Each monitor can use different settings (resolution, color, refresh rate).

Alternately, some video cards are able to "span" the existing desktop area across two monitors rather than create additional desktop space. This is accomplished by using a widescreen res... Read more

A:Dual Monitors...??

There are basically 3 ways that things can happen, and it may vary on what they are called by the brand of the video chipset.

You can have them be exactly the same, meaning everything you see on monitor 1 is also identically displayed on monitor 2. This is pretty worthless unless you are doing color comparisons between the 2.

Another way is to have a HUGE start bar which spans over both screens, you can drag between 1 screen and the other, its effectively 1 big monitor. This way is better than the first one for obvious reasons, but its still not very good. Messages boxes often pop up right in the middle, so its split between 2 monitors not much good.

The 3rd way is to have 1 monitor be the primary and will house the start bar, then the second monitor is just an extention, but behaves independently. You can still drag windows between both. This is in my opinion the ideal setup.

Try not to make this more complex than necessary, its a pretty simple set of senarios.

Edit: Here is a shot of how mine is setup, I have a quicklaunch like bar set to autohide on the far right I forgot to have pop out for the screenshot.

Hello,
I just recently started running dual monitors, my first monitor is my laptop screen while my second monitor is a 19" Dynex lcd tv. The resolution on the laptop screen is set to 1280x800 where as the tv is set at 1440x900

My problem started when I decided to try and play a game on the tv monitor. The game was set in a 1280x800 resolution and as far as I can tell it must be changing the tv to a resolution it doesn't support, because i get the error message "Mode not supported". This also happens when I change the tv's resolution to a resolution below 1440x900.

I fixed the problem and as long as my laptop is open i can use the second monitor as a main monitor or a secondary one. However when I close the laptop screen the tv screen goes blank and displays the error message again ("Mode not supported"). What should happen is the tv should automatically switch to main and only monitor. So I am assuming somewhere in the computers settings this is messed up I just can't find where and its driving me crazy.

I can't find the solution in the nvidia control panel or in display settings.
Thanks in advance.

I am running W2K Professional with a Matrox G400 DualHead video card. My only complaint is that all of my messages/login screens pop up in the center of the screen (right in the middle of the 2 monitors) and get cut in half.

Does anyone know of a way to fix this? It drives me batty!

Hello I have a Lenovo Thinkcentre Edge 72 running Windows 8. I have just installed a Radeon HD5450 Dual Head Graphics card but can not get the monitors to work, so that I can have more than one programme open on each monitor.
 

A:Dual monitors

welcome to TSG. What is on the display? Is it blank, or is it just extended?

This is going to sound stupid but does a vidio card have to have two outputs to drive two monitors?

How can I control/save the location and size of pop up windows.  A program I use at work utilizes a lot of pop ups.  The problem is they always open up straddled across both monitors, so I have to be constantly moving them over every single time.  I only have to re-size once in the morning, but the location is not saved.  What determines which monitor will show the pop up?
