Greetings.

Running Winxp SP3, Quadro FX 370 Video card.

I have two identical monitors, one is oriented landscape, the other portrait. Using the display properties dialog box, I can get the monitors aranged almost perfect. However, vertially, when I move monitor 2, it jumps 16 pixels at a time. I need to move it around 5 pixels to get the screens to line up perfectly. Anyone know how to force the OS to allow smaller increments of adjustment?

I was hitting myself over the head on this myself!

On your desktop, right click. Choose "properties", then "Settings"

Those "1" & "2" boxes are representations of the positions of your monitors. Move them around and click "apply" to see what I mean.

... I know, duh! Who knew those were actual movable things!
