I'm having trouble with snaping to the right ( it puts the image beyond the screen) when I looked in the device manager it shows 2 moniters in the drop down. I only have one moniter though. could this be the issue. thanks

Welocme to Seven Forums, kalamazooguy.

Yes, the fact that the system thinks there are two monitors would cause this. The real question is WHY it thinks there are 2 monitors.

If you can fill out some more of your system specs, maybe we can help with that issue.

hmmm

would it be worth a try to disable one, or will I lose my moniter completely?

Let's try to figure out why the system thinks there are two before you disable one.

The computer was confused & thought you had 2 different monitors connected, when it was only just one

FYI, for better video, disconnect the VGA and leave the DVI connected.
