Dual monitor problems

Post by dj-anakin »

The other day I did a normal Windows update for my Vista desktop and I also noticed two 'optional' updates available. One of them was for my graphics card, entitled: nVidia - Display - NVIDIA GeForce 6600GT. A little voice in my head thought "There's nothing wrong with your video, so why update. Don't fix what's not broken." But at the same time I thought maybe there was some kind of update that would benefit me. Little did I know.

Once the update was done, I rebooted, and once all my startup stuff was done, I noticed my rainmeter was on the left side of my right hand monitor [25" HP], and not on the left side of my left hand monitor [17" Dell], like it had been before.

Ever since then, I haven't been able to keep rainmeter on that far left side. It always pops back over to the left side of the RH screen. It's caused by different things. Refreshing All, double clicking the desktop sometimes, rebooting, etc.

Is there a way to revert to my previous driver?

It's not a driver problem. What version of Rainmeter are you running?
