Screensaver with Multiple Monitors

A short time ago, I added two monitors to a 64-Bit Windows 7 Ultimate computer. The installation - of both the extra graphics cards & monitors - went smoothly. The screensaver being used was the photo screensaver and that was being displayed nicely on the middle monitor.

About a week or so ago, the pictures in the screensaver had moved so that approximately 3/4 of the picture was being displayed on the left monitor while the right portion of the picture is appearing on the middle monitor.

To the best of my knowledge, nothing has been modified but I'm not the only one who uses the computer so it's very possible a setting was adjusted and I'm not aware of it.

Has anyone heard of this situation and possible solutions?

  1. Well to kind of have a better picture of things can you supply the following.

    System Specifications:
    Monitor Resolution:
    OS: Win 7 Ultimate 64

    If you have a store bought computer please provide the following:

    OS:Win 7 Ultimate 64
  2. The computer is a Dell XPS 8300. It was purchased through Dell's website; other than CPU & RAM, I didn't alter the recommended configuration.

    CPU: Intel Core i5-2400 3.10GHz
    RAM: 6GB

    Monitor 1 (Left)
    Dell E196FP
    ATI Radeon HD 5670 (onboard)

    Monitor 2 (Middle)
    HannSpree HF255D
    ATI Radeon HD 5400 Series

  3. Hmm very interesting do you desire to span your experience on all monitors or do you use extended?
  4. Specs really are irrelevant for this issue. There is a bug with windows 7 photo screensaver and there is no way to change the settings. You could try a third party screensaver which tend to be better. For photos I'd suggest picasa.
  5. To be honest I was actually looking to get it back to where the photo screensaver displays on just the middle monitor. But now that I think about it, would it be possible to span the photo across all monitors? Or even better, and of course, more difficult, show different pictures on each monitor?
  6. Picasa can show different pictures on each monitor.
  7. Really K1114 interesting that is really cool. I would check that out then +1
