So I built my first computer in 8-9 years the other day and after hitting a few bumps, I was able to get everything working just fine.
Well, almost everything..
I have an xfx radeon hd 7850 with two DVI ports. I have monitor number 1 plugged in to this one via a VGA cable with a DVI adapter at the end of it. My second monitor was not displaying on the second DVI port, but it has been displaying fine with the onboard graphics adapter.
The issue is that I keep getting a notification from windows saying that I have used up my alloted display memory (Not verbatim, but something along those lines) and some windows features automatically become disabled.
Then other weird things happen. Like if I open a jpg on the 2nd monitor, it will freeze and not display the image. When I drag it to the main monitor, it immediately displays the image. I can then drag it back to the 2nd monitor and it will display fine.

I have the latest 7800 series drivers installed. It's been a while since my last build and lot's of things have changed (although the basics haven't really) since then. Anyone have any ideas on what I can try?
