When using my tablet in Photoshop, my mouse cursor can switch between monitors as expected, but for some reason when using the pen, it won't,,it's as if it stops at the border in monitor one,,any idea?

Re: using dual monitors
That is usually how graphics tablets are set, sometimes they have function buttons that you can use to toggle between screens in a multi screen setup (remember that graphics tablets are not the same as touchpad.....
it is also possible to set your screens up as one desktop... this with a recallibration of your tablet could give you access to the whole screen area.

Go to Control Panel and access the settings for the tablet: you can choose one of 2 mapping settings for the cursor:
1. Pen Mode: this is only to be chosen if the aspect ratio of the tablet matches your monitor aspect ratio (4:3 or 16:9 or 16:10) and only if the size of the tablet is comfortable enough 2. Mouse mode: the pen behaves exactly like a mouse
Please check these settings and choose the one that suites best. Feel free to contact if you have additional questions
It's the windows 7 tablet feature that causes the problem. To solve it you have to disable it. Go to start -> search write "services.msc" (without the strokes) and hit enter. Now search for "Tablet PC Input Service" double click on it and when a little window pops up set Disabled under startup type list box. Now if you want to see effect immediately there is a button Stop, click on it, and wait until service is stopped. When done close both windows. This way you don't have to even restart your pc.
The winning answer came courtesy of Mr Benedikt Schmitt of Wacom Europe, who offered the following solution: from the Windows Device Manager, disable the “Wacom Virtual Hid Driver” device. (Go to Control Panel > System and Maintenance > Device Manager, find the driver, right-click it and choose “Disable”.) One reboot later (welcome to Windows-land, circa 2008?), everything works as desired. Pressure and tilt sensitivity inside Photoshop still work, and the pen functions just fine in the rest of the Windows desktop. The absolute mapping makes it an absolute pleasure to point quickly and precisely. It makes my laser mouse feel rather clumsy navigating a large 24′ screen!
There is a problem with the compatability of your tablet and your monitor. You either have to change your monitor to a different refresh rate or simply move your tablet abit further way from your monitor. If possible, you could change your tablet to "single mode" (depending on your tablet).
