    I run 2 monitors on a QuadroFX 4600. An HP 30" is primary and a Viewsonic 21" is secondary. This has worked fine for over a year. As of today, if I set the resolution of the ViewSonic to less than 1600 x 1200, the picture on the Viewsonic is shifted extremely far to the right, leaving a large gap in the extended desktop. I reset all of the basic params of the monitors in Control Panel and Display Properties, but no fix. This was working fine just 2 days ago!
    Anyone know of a fix?
    Thanks.

    For LCD's there should be an auto or adjust button
    on the monitor.
    Otherwise,check the menu on the monitor for postion controls.

    I tried that. Oddly, when the monitor is set to 1280x1024, the hardware based Horizontal adjustment doesn't do anything and the numbers only show 0 and 100. When set to 1600 x 1200, the hardware based H adjustment works fine. I assume that 1600 x 1200 is the native res of the monitor.

    Well, I figured it out.
    Even though Windows saw both monitors, my NVidia Control Panel was reconfigured to be in "Single" mode. I set it to "Dualview" and the gap is gone!
    Stupid computers!!!
