Yea I checked everything. Nothing I've done has changed it.
I even set Windows Media Player to never span across the display, but in full screen, it still does it.

Thanks alot, I love it. It's never given me any problems aside from this small detail - but this is just me being picky.

Well, I wouldn't the situation with only half the game showing up is being picky... so that would be the only problem it's given me.

Yea, the card has three outputs, one VGA, one DVI, and one S-Video. Mine came with a DVI to VGA converter, so that's how I have the dual screens running. I'm not sure if the video card itself comes with the converter, I'm guessing it does - but mine may have just came with the Alienware as opposed to the card.

Now I have mine set up I can say that Windows Media Player doesn't seem to have a button to maximize on two displays so I don't know...I'd like the start menu to move on both for example though don't know how to make it do that.

It must be the way the monitors are setup in Display Properties, try switching the primary monitor around.

As for another one of those problems, you can't have a game on one screen and still control the desktop without it minimizing...shame really
