Windows 7: New Monitor (Dell)

I wish more monitor manufacturers would build in the rotation feature into their design so you could swivel the monitor from landscape to portrait and back easily. I would love to see the cables feed into the stand and then the signal and power feed through the swivel internally. I have my eyes on some that do this but the wires have to be long enough and loose to allow rotation. When I hit the Lotto I'll get three ! lol

My Dell 2408WFP is sort of like that--the cables thread through the stand base, allowing rotation without tangling the cables.

When I win the lottery, I'll be buying a lot more than just a fancy new monitor.

I have a flat screen Dell monitor hooked up to my laptop (from an old desktop) along with a 32" HDTV. I was under the impression my graphic card (nVidia Geforce 310M) could handle all three at once, but it won't, so I can only use two at a time. At first when I used the HDTV, sound went with it (TV speakers). When I disconnected, I had no sound on my laptop but Windows troubleshooter fixed that. A second use of the HDTV, as an expanded displa,y got no sound on the TV. I'm working on straightening out the conflict.

Perhaps since I use UltraMon I don't see any type of Windows tool on the right hand side (do you mean in the tray area?) The ctrl+Windows+w also does nothing. Rather I have two commands to choose from (move window and maximize which spans two monitors) next to minimize on the top right of every window.
