Windows 7: monitor will only clone not extend

monitor will only clone not extend

Hi all,
I have a Nvidia 8600m card in my dell laptop that has been plugging into my monitor just fine. I plugged it into my projector and it worked fine using both the extend and clone settings. I then went to change the screen res settings and suddenly it didnt show a screen on either the laptop monitor nor the monitor/projector - eventually it started allowing me to clone my desktop but nothing more... Any one got any bright ideas before the next world cup match tonight...

Thanks a lot in advance

Clone Monitor problem (not what you think!)
Windows 7 64 bit. I used my laptop with a second monitor and cloned the display. After I was done, I unplugged it and went about my merry way. Now, I cannot unconnect the new display, and being that it was at resolution 1920xgodknowswhat (1600?), it keeps making the start up, shutdown and games...
