  1. I apologize if this question has been answered before, but I couldn't find it.

    I'm running dual monitors on a laptop, the set up works fine with one minor exception. When I try to view videos in quicktime or windows media player it outputs in full screen to the monitor that the player is not on. This also happens with videos in browsers. http://members.aol.com/jrzycrim01/mozilla/wmp/vidtest-HS.html is an example of this happening. I can only assume it has to do with my video codec, I am using the windows defaults and cyberlink powerDVD as my mpeg2 decoder.

    its might be something with your resolution does the other screen have a higher resolution?
