I have been having a lot of trouble with my second monitor, once I need to unhook my laptop I have a hell of a time getting it to work again, this time it has been 2 days and I am not any closer, so I am hoping someone can help me.
I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 8 months old, with Windows 7 64 bit, 500 mg HD, 4 mg memory, and what happens is I go into screen res and select extend these displays, but the monitor doesnt get recognized, I try to reboot hoping it will get recognized and it goes back to the default of show desktop on one monitor. I checked to see if there are updates for graphics card, apparently they are up to date.
To make matters worse I now have programs "trapped" on the other monitor and do not know how to bring them back, so basically I cannot use the laptop alone or with the second monitor.
Thank you in advance!
