My System Specs

Default Dual monitors

I have been using 2 monitors for a nice while now without a hitch.Then last night it started gettin weird on me.I have extended so i can game on one and still have my desktop etc on the other.Then last night when i started my game,when the game comes on fs on my main,half the desktop stretchs over to my second monitor and i can't properlly run my desktop progs while in game.My settings havn't changed as far as i can tell.Any ideas? heres what i mean...The black screen on the left is a game i have loaded(just don't see the game cause of prtscreen) the right is my second monitor.You can see the split in the screen where my desktop pic from my main monitor comes over to the second when i start a game.

Sounds like whatever game you played screwed with the resolutions. Just go into display properties and re-adjust the resolutions. You may have to start with a smaller than resize.

Other option is to hit the auto button on the monitor to correct it.
