Second Monitor Wrong Side

I have windows 7 rc installed with dual monitor, works great. The only issue is that to access the second monitor i have to move the mouse pointer to the left direction. I hate that. I would like to move the mouse to the right to access the second monitor. Is any way that you can change the direction to access the second monitor? As i am wright handed i found annoying feature having to move the mouse to the left to access the second monitor. I used vista previously and the second monitor was accessed pointing the mouse to the wright. Is any particular reason that the mouse needs to be pointed to the left in windows 7?

Taskbar Flickers

I've been finding that the taskbar flickers to black, like the images disappear. It happens to the time, buttons, start menu windows icon, etc. It flickers back and forth and eventually stops. I'm thinking it's a driver problem? There seems to be no pattern as to what's causing it. Here's my hardware info:

Mobile intel(r) 965 express chipset family (microsoft corporation - prerelease wddm 1. 1)

After An Accidental Shutdown The 32-bit Program Flickers

Dreamweaver 8 worked fine for the first few days on my windows 7 computer. Oddly the companion program, fireworks, is just fine. I accidentally hit the power strip and turned the computer off. Since then it it won't open. When i try to open it, it flickers on, then disappears. Same thing happens when i try to get the 8. 02 patch from macromedia.

Yes, it's an older version, but i am reluctant to buy cs4 since it's not quite compatible and they're coming out with cs5 sometime this year. Does the flickering signal something worse with my computer? Any way to get this 32-bit program running again?

Screen Flickers To Desktop When Using Outlook Email

We have just bought a toshiba netbook nb200 with 1gb ram and an atom 1. 6ghz processor. It has windows home premium installed. When going from preview to full view of emails (and also sometimes changing from calendar to email & back) the screen flickers frequently going from outlook then flashing to desktop for fractions of a second and back. Emails that usually take less than a second to load can take up to 10 seconds when this happens.

It seems to occur regardless of how many other programs are open at the same time. A similar issue, probably related, is encounter when opening large word documents (>2mb). On these occasions it is just the title bar that flickers. Would love some suggestions

No Sound On Right Side

I checked & it has the latest drivers. All new system. It's a realtek high definition audio card. This is exactly what happened. Both speakers worked fine. I plugged my headphones into the right speaker. No sound came through the right side of headphones. I unplugged headphones & right system speaker has been dead ever since.system check of speakers & sound card say that everything is working properly of course. But it is not. Only left side works. The speakers are plugged into color-coded ports green to green port & pink to pink port. Your information was helpful but wouldn't fix the problem.

Issue: Thin White Line On Side Of Display On Toshiba T110

I just started using this toshiba t110 yesterday. The monitor has a 1mm white line on the left side that starts 3cm down from the top and stops 4cm from the bottom. Not really in the way, but definitely something that should not be there. Tried adjusting the display size and restarting to no avail.

Dual Monitor Problem - 2nd Monitor Detected Black

Ok, so i have a dell that was running vista and two monitors. When i upgraded to windows 7 pro i ran into the infamous black screen problem and fixed it. However, i only fixed my main monitor. When i open the display window, both of my monitors are detected but my secondary monitor shows a black screen and the monitor itself says there is no signal detected from my pc.

The strange thing is my pc thinks its working (i can drag a window from my working monitor towards the black one and it moves out of my working monitor into the black screen). I currently have both of them plugged in using a dvi to vga splitter and i have also updated the drivers by clicking the "update driver" button in the monitor properties window. Please help if you can!

Cannot Move Windows From One Monitor To Other - Dual Monitor Setup

I have two monitors of the same resolution connected to an ati radeon hd 4300/4500 video card. In windows 7 extended mode i see a full working desktop on one monitor, but only the background picture on the other - the four-square flag motif again a blue background with wispy lines, butterfly etc.

No taskbar, icons or anything else. On one occasion briefly the mouse cursor appeared on it instead of on the full desktop image. If i try to drag a window on to the second monitor it won't go there. The settings are landscape with two mointors "1" and "2". I have two images but how can i use the second one?

Monitor Resolution

I have purchased a legitimate windows 7 copy. No matter how i install it it wrecks my monitor resolution. This is not a cheap old monitor, it's a fairly new one. Right now i use again vista and everything seems normal. But when i install windows 7 the maximum resolution it gives me is 640x480. It's really annoying.

Monitor Will Just Go Blank

I have an issue where my monitor will just go blank. The computer is running but no display. My first thought was that this is a display adapter/video driver issue but i not longer think so. Let me explain. My set up is a hp m9040n running windows 7 ultimate x64. I have a nvidia 9600 gso card that is less than 6 months old and use a samsung syncmaster t240 monitor.

This first started happening about one month ago right after i upgraded my video card driver to the latest version. I would be away from the computer for awhile and when i came back no amount of mouse shaking would bring the screen on. At that point a hard shut down and boot up would bring things back.

Thursday it got worse. Hard shut downs would not bring anything back but i would see the bios startup screen so obviously the monitor and display adapter has some output. I started in safe-mode and installed that latest driver from the nvidia website. No difference, in fact it appears to be the same driver that windows update put out.

My next step was to roll back my driver to the one that came with my video card. This kind of works. There are new symptoms now. Now what happens is that after working for awhile i would hear the usual kind of insert/disconnect sound (like plugging in a usb device) and then the screen resolution would change from 1920x1200 to 1024x768. For some reason the monitor according to the screen resolution control would go from my monitor to a generic. If i click on the detect button, the screen will blank out and once again i have to do a hard shut down. The hard shut down followed by a boot in safe mode and and reboot restores things to normal.

Dual Monitor

Is there any option available with using dual monitor in a "stretched" view instead of extended? What i'm trying to do is run 1 application over my 2 monitors in full screen mode. So far i haven't found anything that would make this possible. I can extend and i can enlarge a window over 2 monitors but i can't really use a resolution of ~3200 * 1050 for example. This was possible under xp but neither vista or windows 7 i can get this to work.

I've tried searching the forums but alas i have not found an answer for this. If someone can find a topic already covering this sorry for double posting. But mostly i found extending and not really stretching it over 2 screens.

Problem With Monitor

Well i am not sure if monitor is the cause of the problem. Ok listen  every time(but not always) i start my computer after windows startup  i see my desktop and after 1-2 minutes(not more) my screen display goes black or white or grey. The computer and the screen are still working but no response. I dont even see the cursor. I restart my computer and after everything is fine. It never happens again. But the next day it happens again!

My graphics card is ati radeon 5770, my os is windows 7 64 bit and my screen is lg monitor-tv m227wd. Refresh rate is 60hz and resolution is 192x1080. The first 1-2 days i used the computer that problem didnt appear. So it makes me think that maybe i downloaded something that causes this problem(a programme) or its a hardware problem? I have updated the graphics drivers and also i have all the microsoft updates.

Monitor Shuts Off

My computer monitor keeps shutting off on me. I have a dell inspiron b130 (i know it is kinda old) but i don't think its a hardware issue. It has started happening since i installed windows 7. At first i thought it was because my original product key didn't work, but i did the automated phone activation, and validated on the website, but it still shuts off. If i don't use my computer for awhile, it may stay on for a good 20 mins or so, but once it shuts off once, the time it stays on gets less and less. But, i just close the lid and open it back up and it works again. Any ideas as to what is going on?!?

Dual Monitor Help

Dell couldn't seem to solve my problem, so i'm desperately in need of help. I have a dell inspiron 580, i3 processors. The machine has one vga output, and hdmi. I want to run two monitors, so dell informed me to buy a second vid card. I did, installed a raedon jd2600 pro 512mb with two dvi connections and one dvi adapter. I hooked both monitors up, and it will either run one monitor on the ati card, or one on the intel card, but i cannot extend the display. I was on the dell support line for over an hour, and  they told me to just go buy another dvi adapter and plug it in. So if that's true, i cant run two cards?

Cannot Get Second Monitor To Work

I am connecting a second monitor to my sony vaio-vgn-sz650n-by vga. Before upgrading from vista to 7, it was working just fine. After upgrading, i plug it in, screen blinks, but no display on second monitor. It is a dell g2210 by the way. I tried restarting my computer with monitor connected, without it connected, and went into the display settings where you can change resolution, etc. On the different monitors, and nothing there. Tried to "detect" monitor, still nothing. Tried updating the driver, nothing(maybe wrong driver?). I would love to get this problem solved as school is starting and i need to use my computer a lot, and really like having dual monitors.

Two Installations For Same Monitor

I recently installed windows 7 replacing vista on my hp pavillion. After some difficulty which required a denovo installation versus an upgrade, i managed to get windows 7 functioning. However, when playing a game (cod waw, etc) if i get killed and the game restarts, there is a 4-10 sec delay in the screen returning to the game scene. I can hear the sound immediately but the video lags. When i look at the control panel => monitors, it shows that the monitor is installed twice. How do i remove one of the installations?

Hooking Tv Up As A Monitor

I have tried everything. I have gone to nvidia and got the updates for 7. I have a pavilion slimline s7600n i have a outdated graphics card, nvidia geforce 6150 le gpu. I cant even upgrade it. I don't think thats the reason my tv is not recognized. I had it hooked up when i had xp and it worked just fine. I think that windows 7 thinks i am trying to hook up two monitors. I just want this to work the tv has the same resolution as the hpv15 monitor but it wont work.

I have been at this all day. Please help i can get it to come on for a second, but the computer quickly reboots. I have to plug the hpv15 monitor back in to get reception. It says had to reboot or something of that nature because it found new hardware. I can find a generic monitor but i cannot make it the primary monitor. Any one anything this post has been here for 45 minutes and nothing

Error - Out Of Range - Monitor

"out of range" error appears on my monitor right before logging screen. Have this quite annoying little bug, when i boot up windows 7 it starts loading then suddenly my monitor will just go black and a "out of range" error will pop up. I've tried everything i know to fix this, logged in safe-mode and updated all my graphic drivers and still no luck. Currently in safe-mode as we speak. I believe it's something to do with my resolution, graphics card. I have a nvidia 9600 gs.
