dual monitors, 2nd monitor on left?

    I just hooked up a second monitor to my 6800 ultra and want it to be on the
    left side as that is the free side. The mouse and joystick are on the
    right. Anyway, on to the problem. I want the second monitor to be on the
    left side and operate as the secondary display. But I cannot get it to do
    that. Every time I try to set it only allows the secondary display on the
    right, the primary is always on the left.

    What am I missing? Is there anyway to make it so I can drag off the left
    side of the primary to get to the second monitor? It gets confusing
    dragging the mouse to the right to get to the monitor on my left and vice

    Switch the cables on the video card then make the #2 monitor the default
    monitor. You can then drag left.

  3. in the display properties - settings tab, you can drag them around, even put
    one on top of the other!

    thanks for that simple little fix. I knew I had to be missing something very
    obvious. ;o0 I never tried dragging them like that. I kept using the
    'custom' option in the display properties wizard and it just wouldn't
