This is really not a problem-it is just an annoyance.

On I-Tunes, I like to watch the music videos. I was able to watch a video in the I-Tunes window on one monitor, while I do something else on my other monitor. That all changed when I upgraded to SP2. Now, the video goes to full screen on the other monitor. Even if I switch which monitor the I-Tunes window is on, it switches the full screen.

I was thinking, before I start figuring out the why, I wanted to be patient and wait for the upgrade on I-Tunes, in hopes that it would fix itself. No luck.

I noticed that the SP2 upgrade also changed the driver for my MX440 SE 64 MG video card, so I looked for an upgrade on that driver. No luck on that either.

In the research for the video card driver, I did figure out a way that I can watch the video (full screen) while surfing with the other monitor. It partially fixed what I was hoping, but when watching something full screen, it takes up alot of RAM in both the video card (which I do not have much anyway with 64 MG), and system RAM for having to on-the-fly expand a smaller picture.

Don't get me wrong, I have alot of RAM with 512. It does limit the multi-tasking that I can do though.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Check the display resolution setting (in Control Panel - Display). Re-install the original driver if a higher res isn't available.

I have tried that, but thanks for the advice.

To prevent conflicts, I have to keep them at the same resolutions. Especially if I want to manually move an application from monitor to monitor, which I do often.
