I have a laptop at work connected to a docking station, with a 17" monitor attached. While at work, I use the dual monitor setup to keep the LCD on the laptop and the monitor both going at the same time, it dramatically increases my efficiency of reading the dope.
Anyhow, lately it has started acting wierd. Usually the taskbar (you know, the little bar with the START button on it) is on the laptop LCD, along with all of the icons normally on the primary monitor. But lately, when I boot up, it’s deciding it would rather be on the 17" monitor instead. All of the regular icons remain on the laptop monitor, however, and the laptop monitor identifies itself as monitor 1.
If I fire up the laptop sans docking station, it behaves as it should, with the taskbar appearing in the normal place. But every time I boot up with it connected to the dock, I have to move the taskbar back to the laptop. I’m at a loss for what to do about this…I have no idea what setting I woudl mess with to adjust this.
