    Windows Off Screen With New Z68 Mobo

    Hi,

    I recently upgraded my mobo to a Z68. Using the same copy of Windows 7 Ultimate as before. 2 monitors with an 'Extended' screen. I'm using the mobo's built-in Intel graphics.

    On a few apps I have, various dialog boxes will appear off-screen @ upper left. I've installed a little utility called 'Sheepdog' which helps me 'retrieve' it when it happens, but since it's -chronic-, this is getting tiresome.

    Is there some permanent fix for this?

    TIA,

    ---JC

    You mean resolution? Same as before: 1680 x 1050 --- which is what Windows 'recommends'.

    What's interesting is that I don't think it happens until the displays 'go to sleep' or... if I power down the displays and leave the computer on with the apps open. Often, when the screens 'wake up', the windows within the app will be re-sized to fit within a -single- display. IOW: it's as if it isn't 'remembering' that there is an Extended Display.

    The recommended screen resolution is specified by the display vendor not Windows. LCD displays have a recommended resolution that generally should not be changed.

    Make sure you have the most current drivers for your motherboard and displays.
