I just plugged in my new second monitor and realized that when i move my mouse to the side of my monitor it jumps to my other monitor like in an old flash game when you move to the side of a wall and you port to the other side of the screen yet it also works the way i want it to when i move my mouse to the other monitor smoothly? any way to fix the teleport issue?

I'm not exactly sure what's going on from your description. But, you can right click on your desktop -->screen resolution and change the virtual configuration of your monitors. It sounds like possibly you have the virtual layout swapped from the physical layout (your computer thinks the 1 is to the left of 2 when 1 is physically to the right of 2).

Personally I position my monitors diagonally (virtually) because accidental jumps from 1 screen to the other drive me nuts!

if the screens or of a different size and your using an expanded display you will get a jump, normaly its cause by a different aspect ratio on the other screen but it can affect 2 16:9 monitors of different dpi's.
i minimized it on mine by lining the screens up horizontally across the middle
