    I'm having this very odd problem. I think my computer think that i have two screens. I can bring my mouse way over to the left, and when i open windows, like internet explorer or my documents they are way over to the left. The only way i can retrieve them is if i right click down at the bottom and click move.

    I was pretty sure this problem could be solved by going to the display settings, but since a bar doesn't come up for the display settings, i can't move the settings box to where i can see it.

    Edit: I have windows xp

    Hi, What make and model computer is it? If it's a notebook/laptop they usually have a function key that switches the Mode from one monitor, two monitors, or nothing but the LCD screen....

    Nevermind. I found a way to change my settings. I used the Nvidia settings to change from dual to single view. Everything is fine now. (y)
