Display problems with 2 monitors


Standard Member
I have just upgraded my PC with MB Asus P5K-VM, Core2Duo 2.66, 2GB RAM, Graphic Adaptor Asus EN8500GT Scilent. The TV card is unchanged Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-250MCE.
I have 2 monitors ViewSonic VX924 + VG2021wm - both connected to EN8500GT.
Problem is now that often when I open Mediacenter and drag it to VG2021 to watch TV on that monitor and work on the VX924 the Mediacenter "looses the frame", i.e. I cannot access the minimize/maximize/close/go-back buttons.
If I drag Mediacenter back to the VX924 monitor "the frame" is still gone.

This only happens when I drag from one monitor to another.

Previously (with ealier config Asrock MB, P4 etc) I did not have any problems.

Can anybody help

I have fumbled a bit with the problem. It seems, as if both monitors have the same resolution it works. Not very nice - but it seems to work. Bi-effect however is a bit strange: While curser is "arrow" as it should be on main screen it turns to "bussy" when moved to extended screen - but works. This is not depending on MC is running or not.
