I am running Win 7, i920 machine with a Geforce 260 and two monitors. How do get the mouse to track over to the second screen in the opposite direction. ie. left to right v right to left. Reaassigning the primary screen didn't make a difference

Thank you

Although I do not have dual monitors set up on my 7 machine, I do recall this being an issue for me as well, until I discovered in the display settings you can actually grab and drag the monitors around. By what you are describing (If I understand correctly) windows thinks the left monitor is on the right, and the right monitor is on the left.
Right click on desktop, personalize, display, change display settings. This is where it APPEARS to be. Without having dual monitor setup I cannot tell for sure. You would just left click and drag one monitor across to the other side of the other. Then windows knows what order the monitors are on your desktop. If the settings aren't in that specific location, try looking around in that area. You would not believe how many times I moved monitors around, or plugged them into different ports before I learned this.
P.s. Another nice feature of this, is that it allows you to set the monitors up anywhere. One ABOVE the other, or even not exactly parallel. Its a neat feature if your monitors are not exactly side by side.

I too and using windows 7 running 3 monitors off of a dell laptop (the laptop is one of the monitors). We have tried everything you suggest and nothing works the mouse wants to go right to left and we cannot find any setting like there was in XP to change the drag direction of the mouse. Can you give us any help?

Woops I meant to say in my last entry that the mouse goes left to right and we want it to go right to left. Sorry.
