    Dual Monitor issues all of a sudden-Help


    I am not a noob...but currently really confused and feeling pretty dumb
    I have had a dual monitor setup for years with no issues. My primary monitor is an HP. I have a Samsung as a second monitor for watching videos/ music while working.

    All of a sudden my icons started appearing on the right monitor- Samsung. Also games that normally started on the left monitor...primary....started on the right monitor.

    Here is how I have it set up on display in Windows Settings

    HP monitor is primary and Samsung Secondary (in windows it identifies the left monitor as 1 and Samsung as 2)

    On Nvidia Control Panel I have the HP as primary monitor. This is just really weird that I can't fix it.

    :)

    Dual monitor, Dual mouse??

    Hello,

    Please share this information to assist you better.

    • How have you setup dual monitors?
    • Are you referring to use 2 different mouse/keyboard with the dual monitor setup?
    If yes, the mouse or keyboard may function same as one another. Since, it has to be connected to single PC/tower.

    However, setting up 2 different mouse/keyboard with the Dual- monitor setup, it may not function separately for each monitor.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will assist you further.
