Duel Screen issues

so i just recently put a second monitor on my computer and both have different resolutions which i dont mind but why is it when i get the computer out of sleep everything is on the other monitor than the one i had it on?


i go through screen resolution and make sure that the larger monitor is the 1 and the smaller one is 2 but either way it switches everything

i also have a dock on my computer and it likes to go back and forth between the two monitors when i take it out of sleep

why can i do to prevent this from happening

I think that might be a video card issue. What video card do you use? Have you recently updated the drivers? While you're at it, I would recommend updating your other drivers as well. I found another forum post on cnet that you mind find a use of.

Okay. Try updating your drivers. It should help.

Set screen 1 checkbox to "make this my main display" on the resolution screen.
