Windows 7: Multiple Monitor Problem - Moving Applications

05 Aug 2014   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
Multiple Monitor Problem - Moving Applications


A small amount of information first: I have four identical monitors arranged in a square, two using a Nvidia GeForce 6200 Turbocache and the others a Nvidia GeForce 7300 SE / 7200 GS, both of which have updated drivers. I'm also using DisplayFusion for the multiple monitor setup.

The problem is that the applications decide to move to the bottom two monitors a few times a day; it is a work computer, and applications are kept open in a certain layout all day. At first I assumed it was when the display was turned back on (the Windows 7 automatically display turnoff has since been turned off), but now it will move in the middle of normal use. Sometimes one of the programs will even move off all four monitors, somewhere off to the right.

I'm new to multiple monitor setups, so it's very possible it's something obvious I'm missing, but any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Just in case this happens to anyone else: it was the Lenovo Power Manager application that came with the Lenovo machine. After 15 minutes of non-use it was resetting the graphics (or something), which caused Windows to move the applications / icons.

Multiple-monitor problem playing steam games
If I have both my monitors enabled and try to start a game such as CS:S or TF2, it puts it into an infinite loading screen and I can never get to the main menu. The only way to fix this is to play in windowed mode or disable the second monitor. Has any body heard of a fix for this?

Moving my applications from Virtual PC to VirtualBox
I recently started using VirtualBox (by using VMLite Workstation) to run Windows XP Mode. However, none of the applications which I installed in Virtual PC were moved to the Virtual Box. Is there a way to transfer these apps or remove them from Virtual PC and move them to VirtualBox?
