That is kinda weird. I'd say it may be a driver issue that doesn't support dual monitors. Are they both VGA or DVI. I don't know if your trying one VGA and one DVI that may cause a issue. Thats about my only 2 guesses. What graphics card are you installing it on?

Edit:

Not sure what that program is i just use the one desktop background in dual view. Maybe run a search for it I know someone posted it with something along the lines of dual desktop backgrounds or something. If your missing the taskbar 1 is still set as primary with the second in dual view extended thats kinda weird. Unsure what to suggest for ya there. Thanks for the rep

Ill update the drivers right now for shits and giggles.

But its a eVGA 7600GT, both slots are DVI. My 22'' Sceptre is a DVI, and the other is a VGA with a VGA>DVI adapter.

That may cause a Issue. Don't hold me to that but it would make some sense. Try googling dual view displays with a combo of VGA/DVI and see if there are any hits of people posting problems of running 2 displays with that setup. I'm running dual VGA's myself with DVI>VGA adapters. So that may very well be your problem just don't hold me to it just a hypothesis

Ok well I updated drivers and when I ran my big monitor at native res it got disproportioned and I had to scroll the screen over to see it all, and it was pretty blurry, so I rolled back the drivers.

Now I have everything taken care of and working good. But the drivers I got from the nVidia site were bad.

Anyways, whats something I split wallpapers with? What program changes wall papers per background?

Edit, nevermind im getting ultramon.
