Your monitor has been enabled as an extended monitor, not a clone.
Easy way to see is open a window, grab it and drag it to the other monitor (drag it right, not left). Just remember even if you have the external monitor on your left side, it is really on the right side according to the computer.
Check the display properties for a clone option if you want both to show the same thing.

Hope that helps a little.

Is there a function key I can use to get a full screen of a video or a you tube video.


Press F11 for full screen. N.B: After pressing F11 it will not display title bar & task bar. The best way is just click on the button. shoyo_4.jpg If not it will display in this format without showing title bar and task bar. shoyo_3.jpg

I run Windows XP Professional. Today there showed up a second layer of taskbar. It has ''Desktop'' in light blue, ''My Documents'' ''My computer'' and ''My Network Places'' shown in white with icons. ...


You have only increased your taskbar size, don't worry...
Right-click on an empty part of the taskbar, and ensure the "lock the taskbar" is unchecked. Next, position your mouse right on the top edge of the taskbar, your mouse should change to two black opposing pointing arrows. Hold left-click, and drag the taskbar down.
This will reduce the taskbar back to the way you're used to.
Hope this helps, and please rate this answer.

Hi, I have a problem with


The high voltage (HV) flyback transformer is a very possible cause of this. This could be repaired by a qualified technician, but the cost may not be worth it. New 17" monitors can be acquired for free sometimes (think craigslist)

Flipped\upside down screen on my compaq

Windows XP: Flipping the screen upside down and back again


Once, at University, someone had flipped the screens of all the public computers (running on Windows XP) of the English Department upside down. The wallpaper, desktop icons, fonts, mouse-cursor and even the start-up screen...everything was displayed or moved upside down. People could not check out their e-mails or surf or do anything.
To reverse the upside down screen mode, press ctrl, alt and the up arrow (arrows console) at the same time; the screen will probably go blank. Turn off the monitor, turn it on again and the display will be normal again. If you possess a sense of humour or are antisocial, press ctrl, alt and the down arrow simultaneously, turn off the monitor, turn it on again and everyone (excluding the culprit) will be desperate --> upside down! Works for Windows XP Home and Prof.
