Hi

I have a dual-monitor configuration, which in itself seems to be working as such. In Display Properties settings, clicking on the appropriate screens makes them identify themselves visually.

However, since yesterday, the "Restore down" button is not working in any applications. This kind of negates the joy of dual monitors, in that you cannot flick files from monitor 1 to monitor 2.

Browsing around, I have seen suggestions where it has been said that this is caused by a registry error, although these inevitably refer to registry issues in specific applications. I performed a registry cleanup, but no joy yet.

Running on XP Standard, SP2.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd certainly be very grateful

TIA

Chris

No error message Dec 5, 2007

Hi Margreet,

No - no error messages.

The files are all fully processable. I can minimize them and close them,
it's just this that refuses to work.

The button changes to the way it should look for a split second, and then reverts to the way it looks here

Chris

Resolution? (Guesswork..) Dec 5, 2007

I must admit, I'm guessing here.

I only work with dual monitor settings when using a video projector.
That is not quite your situation, because your dual screen configuration is permanent, mine is temporary. Most problems I have had were solved when changing to a lower resolution, but I'm not sure I'd recommend that in your situation.

What has changed since yesterday? Have you installed any new software, replaced hardware, something like that? I'm beginning to believe it might be a driver problem, but I don't understand why it worked well until yesterday and does not function properly now.

I hope someone with a permanent dual-screen configuration like yours shows up, they'll probably be able to help you better than I can.
