Dual Displays - placed vertically .. not horizontally?

  Mr. Chips 15:27 07 Aug 2012

Hi there I am using an HP Pavilion DV6 Notebook which has a Radeon HD 7470m display driver.

I am using two displays, with one placed directly above the other.

The driver allows two displays, but expects them to be side by side. .. ... so I move the mouse to the right to go to the top screen, and from the top screen I have to move the mouse to the left to get to the bottom screen.

This is doing my head in!

Is there any way of getting the driver to respond to the up and down, rather than side by side nature of my set-up.

Methinks NO ... but perhaps you may know better.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated

Try this. Use the "Monitors" application under System/Prefences and just drag the right hand monitor above the left hand monitor. Click apply and you're done.

Also from Microsoft. On the Display screen, just drag the images of the monitors to the position you physically have them in.

You just don't know how I felt when that worked!

I had no idea that you could do that.

I shall be eternally grateful to you.

..... and to think that I nearly didn't bother to post the query on the forum.

Very many thanks

Glad to be of help, by the way I did not know you could do that either.
