We need info like what monitors, what drivers have you installed, what resolution is native, etc.

So when your mouse moves from right to left screen the game window minimizes or do you just lose control of the game?

Can't help with the game as I don't have it (do have dual monitors though), but unless it is something specific with CS that sort of thing shouldn't happen. Most games when run full screen on a dual monitor set up will lock the mouse to the primary monitor.

Wouldn't happen to have Nview (or whatever Nvidia's monitor control program is called) enabled? If so see if there is an option in it anywhere to enable hotkeys, and if so see if there is one (or can create one) for locking the mouse. Also if Nview is enabled and there is no hotkey option, disable it and see if the mouse performs as it should.

If none of the above applies grab the free trial of this to use while waiting,

Realtime Soft UltraMon

as I know it does have hotkey functionality, and allows for locking the mouse to whichever monitor, as well as adds a taskbar to the second monitor. I use the mouse lock for the few games I have (mainly RTS or anything with side scrolling), and it works very well.

I dont think CSS like dual monitors much. I also am not sure how dual monitors work, but it may just be a lack of support for the game.

I acctually managed to fix the problem by changing the resolution, but thanks for all the help!

Some games have a tendency for mouse wandering (not being locked into single screen)

Which monitor did you adjust the resolution on?

Another quick and dirty tip is to press WIN+P to bring up the multi monitor setup option where you can quickly disable your secondary display.

I notised that i only had 800 x 600 in the game and changed it to 1920 x1080 so I didnīt change the resolution on any screen.
