FX5600, Dual Monitor, DVI and Overlay combination problem

    I have a MSI FX5600, am running two LCD screens, one using the DVI,
    the other VGA.

    Since the DVI one is definately clearer, I have made it the Primary
    screen and have set it to the left of the other one (Screen order 2
    then 1, dual display mode).

    The only thing is that overlay doesn't seem to work if the primary
    screen is anything other than 1 (vga).

    I have reset primary screen to screen 1 to get overlay to work, but
    this means that all applications, dialog boxes etc. etc. open in this
    screen (physically, the right-hand screen).

    Is there any way to get overlay to work on a non-primary screen, or to
    have the vga screen and primary but have all dialogs etc. default to
    the left-hand (DVI, non-primary) screen?

    Otherwise a very good card!

    Are you running both monitors at the same resolution and refresh rate?
    The refresh was what caused the problem for me.
