Hey guys, so i have my laptop with a NVIDIA GeForce 8800MGTX graphics card. I bought a new monitor so i could have a dual monitor setup. When i plugged in the monitor it let me choose to have an extended desktop and which side the external monitor is on. All worked out great.

Then, my computer went to sleep, and when it woke up, it fucked up the display settings and after i finally fixed the resolutions and shit, i realized the desktop extension was to the right, while my monitor lay to the left of my laptop. There's no more room on my desk to the right of my laptop, the monitor has to be on the left, but now i can't figure out how to change the orientation of the second monitor. I tried googling it, but i found no answer. Please help :bawl:

Unplug the monitor and plug it back in? That has reset things for me in the past.

In the nVidia control panel (or maybe the Windows display settings, I forget which), there should be an option that lets you choose which way the display stretches, and which monitor is the default.

I would check it out myself, but right now I'm on a single-monitor laptop with an ATi card.

In the properties window where you set the screen resolutions (where you have the two monitor icons labelled 1 and 2) you can click and drag the icons to change the positions of the monitors relative to each other.

oh hey, i figured it out! You were right in a sense. You gotta go to Windows display settings, and they have a little picture of your two monitors one with a big 1 on it, and one with a big 2 on it. You actually have to click and drag the pictures around to configure the setup.
