Windows 7: Full Screen Wallpaper on Both Monitors?

Full Screen Wallpaper on Both Monitors?

I have a dual monitor display, and on the second monitor, the wallpaper is centered. Is there any way to get it full screen?
It is currently like this.
EDIT: Print Screen isn't acurately displaying this. The image is cnetered on the second monitor. The top and bottom of the monitor are black bars. I know it's not a monitor probelm, program windows go full screen.
EDIT2: OK, the black on the seconf picture is where it is no. The white is on the whole monitor (It's smaller than the other)

I believe that's normal if the two screens have different resolutions.

At least, that's the way it is for me at work. (Monitor 1: 1600X1200. Monitor 2: 1680X1050. Graphics card, NVidia Quadro FX1800.)

Ya, I looked around, and the only fix I found was Digital Fusion. It got it how I want. But, that is how it is by default.

Can't get dual monitor wallpaper to span both monitors
I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but I have a wallpaper that is 3200x1200 resolution, and my two monitors are 1600x1200 each. The wallpaper will only mirror on both screens instead of half being on one screen and half being on the other... How can I get this to work properly?
