    Hello,

    I have two Samsung SyncMaster 2243BW monitors that are connected to a single computer with a NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 graphics card.

    The problem I am having at the moment is that when you maximise a window, it gets maximised across the two displays rather than only on its relative display. As well as this, during log-in, the dialogue box is displayed directly in the middle of the two displays, making it unreadable.

    Is there a way to correct this so that a maximized window would only be maximized on the display it appears on rather than across the two displays?

    Also, it may be of relevance that when I view the 'Settings' tab in the display properties, only the settings for one monitor appear. I need to access the NVIDIA control panel to adjust settings for a dual-monitor configuration.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    This issue actually resolved itself! I posted a moment too early.

    A simple restart enabled additional options within the display properties to achieve what I wanted.
