The screen is split so that I have one larger screen with no right side and then next to that I have a smaller left side on the left side. It keeps coming and going... This is driving me nuts. I have an Alienware m11x; brand FREAKING new, just set it up today. Could somebody please help me?
But, here's my guess... the monitor your using is not new. Either you have the resolution set above it's "default resolution" or horizontal refresh/scan rate (60hz on an LCD monitor). OR, above the resolution or scan rate it can support, if it's an old CRT monitor.
In Win7 : right click on desktop, open screen resolution, advanced settings, monitor, and set "Screen Refresh Rate" to 60hz
Alien support should also be able to diagnose too....
