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!

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.

Over the last 6 months I purchased my teen son a Creative DVD Drive for his Compaq Presario as well as a Creative Audigy MP3+ Sound Card and the Creative/Cambridge DTT3500 6 Speaker Dolby 5.1 Sound System .... {the things kids get today ... you can send your donations to .....} ...

Gentlemen,

I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit Home blah, blah, blah, with a NVIDIA GEForce 6150 graphics card.

I have 2 monitors, but believe I need to purchase another video/graphics card.

Anyone smarter than me out there (that was meant to be self depricating), that could recommend a plain jain, cheap graphics card so I can hook up my second monitor? I'm not into gaming, just love having two monitors at work, and once you have two, you can't handle one, right?

I just bought a new TV and hooked it up to my Acer Aspire X1200 Desktop PC via HDMI Cable (HDMI from PC to HMDI TV input).

Every time I drag something over to the TV, (e.g. a Video)... the TV Picture works OK but I lose all the desktop icons on the PC Monitor and get an error report (one of which I sent for analysis).

In order to get the icons back, I have to reboot the computer and usually the icons are reconfigured in a cluster....i do not have 'align to grid' selected (Lucky I have a little Gismo which will reset the desktop items to my previously configured favourite layout).......

I have a VGA to HDMI Converter but did not use that yet because I am waiting for a splitter for the VGA Cable which will boost the signal to both monitors (and I believe would simply duplicate my desk top anyway).

If I could simply use the TV as an extension Monitor without all the problems after I have dragged something over to that screen, then I would not even have to use a converter or a VGA splitter.

Any ideas as to why my Desktop Monitor goes 'skewiff' after I push something out to the extension monitor?

A:Dual Monitors W7 x64

One monitor with VGA connection and one with HDMI, both of the same graphics card (which from the Acer Aspire X1200 I am assuming is the integrated NVIDIA GeForce 8200).

If you press the (Windows Key + P) together, holding down the Windows key, is the option Extend selected? If not, can you select it please (still holding down the Windows key, press P a couple of times until Extend is selected).

How have you setup the two monitors, their resolution mainly but anything else?

Hello. I cannot get a dual monitor setup to work for the life of me. I've made a LITTLE progress though by tweaking the BIOS to load from the Mobo VGA port first on boot, but now the second monitor just stays lit up with the windows 10 logo and nothing else, while the first still works just fine. Windows will not detect the second monitor, nor will extending it on the projector settings work. The main monitor is plugged into DVI on an old ATI Radeon HD 7700 Series card. Forget the exact model and that. I believe it's an H.I.S. Radeon. But I'm going through all the options and i'm scratching my head here. help would be appreciated.

EDIT The Radeon card I have only supports one DVI connection and one HDMI. Both monitors I have are VGA/DVI.

A:Need help with dual monitors

I'll happily be wrong, but I don't believe you can run one from the mobo and one from the video card together.

Disable the mobo GPU in BIOS.

Then get an HDMI/DVI adapter so you can run the second monitor off the card with the first.

Yes, it should work fine. Hook the VGA plug to the CRT and the DVI to the LCD. Then go into ATI Catalyst Control Center and make your LCD desktop 1 (primary) and the CRT as desktop 2. You can set the resolution independently for each monitor.

You could also hook-up the s-video output to your TV.

I have dual monitors, one on my laptop and another bigger monitor for when I am docked and at the office.

Under XP I had it set so that when I closed the lid on my laptop, the lapto screen was shut off and all files that were subsequently opend were opened to the main big screen.

It appears now that when I close the lid the screen stays on and if there was a window showing on the laptop when the lid is closed it does not automatically switch to the big monitor. It used to under XP. Is there a way to duplicate this behavior in Windows 7?

A:Dual Monitors

Plug in your second monitor and enjoy.

It varies depending on what video card you have. ATI tells us nothing. If it has two ports, you should be able to plug in a second monitor, and have it clone. From there, you need to open the settings and set it to extend not clone. Since I am not familiar with ATI cards, and each one varies, we cannot tell you exactly.

I will bet it will work if you just plug it in though.

They are running off the same GFX card (8800GT) - when I open the game, the movie when running in full screen pans to the side on the second monitor and black, so I see half black screen and half desktop background, but I still hear the movie playing, when the movie is running in windowed mode and I open the game, the video just turns black, but with sound.

So how can I fix this? My PC is pretty good and should run fine, I dont know whether this is a config problem or what..

I was looking at the Vista help files and it says to use the keyboard shortcut that turns on monitors to get to the New Display Detected dialogue box to set up the undetected display.

Are you plugging into a graphics card? Does anything at all happen when you plug in the monitor, e.g., does Windows tell you it doesn't recognize the device.

Ok...I have a Radeon 9600XT with the vga and dvi out. What i want to do is hook my regular monitor up to the vga out and hook my big screen HDTV up to my DVI out. My tv has a dvi in as well so no need for adapters, just a straight up dvi-d cable. Most of the time i will just be using my regular monitor, but every now and again i would like to switch to the tv on command. So i got it all hooked up, but it seems like both displays are being picked up as primary monitors/displays which causes problems because i need the tv at a lower resolution than my regular monitor and if i switch in between the two all my display settings are the same for both. I want to be able to set it where the display settings stay unique to each of the displays. Is this possible? I have all the latest ATI drivers and it seems possible to me, but i've been just having a tough time with it. If anyone could please walk me through this it would greatly be appreciated.

So last night I watched some preseason football on the Vizio on HDM2 and when I woke up this morning, the Sony was still working but the Vizio (computer is on HDM1) had no signal input, while I noticed the extended screen was enabled meaning my mouse disappeared onto the other blank screen .. so the thought occurred to me to restart..

So I restarted, then it recognized my Sony with its proper settings instead of the Generic and only listed one monitor in the Display settings.. I did a detect device and was given a few options of adding another monitor, and tried to do that, without any success.. so then I detached the Sony, and tried to restart only with the Vizio on both ports, the one it was originally in and the one the Sony was in.. with no success, still no signal, checked the connections, and somehow I doubt it would be the cable and I admit that the symptoms in trouble shooting things kind of point to that, but the cable is new.. and would love to entertain other ideas before getting a new one..

any suggestions?

First idea is to install:

NVIDIA GeForce 305.53 64-bit download from Guru3D.com

Probably be good to go after.

Can someone please recommend a good not too expensive graphics card that will enable me to have dual monitors, one being a tft screen the other being a crt screen. I have curently 32mg intergrated graphics card, I would rather have just the one card, but if needs be I could install two. I don't particularly game on due to having a PS2, (I know that was a little like swearing on here lol), I do watch dvds on my pc, so would appreciatte something that will make the picture crisp while watching these. If not too expensive an intergrated TV card would be good but not essential.

thanks woody.

I have a home workstation (Win7 Ultimate 32 bit) with dual monitors connecting to my office workstation (Win7 Ulitmate 64 bit), which has 3 monitors. The checkbox in Remote desktop to allow dual monitors is checked but I cant get the second monitor to work (through the VPN). I have tried disconnecting the 3rd monitor to match the number of monitors, but that didnt work. Anyone have any thoughts? Thanks

A:Dual Monitors using RDP over VPN

Original post was incorrect. Office workstation had Windows 7 Professsional. The host computer needs to have Ultimate installed to allow the dual monitors to work using remote desktop. Upgraded to Ultimate and it works great.

I have a dell dimension 2300 computer that has on board video. I have installed a pci ati all in wonder 128 pro video card. I am wondering if both video outputs can be used to run two monitors. I can go to the device manager and under displays it shows the ati as enabled and the on board disabled. I have enabled both cards and then chickened out, not knowing if I would be able to get it to work again. If I hook up the second monitor and enable the on board graphics are all kinds of bad things going to happen.

Should work fine but you are asking that little 2300 to work harder.
