When you install the matrox drivers, you must select 'Install enhanced 
multimonitor support'.
Once in windows, in your advanced display control settings, for multimonitor mode, you 
muse select different resolution & # of
colors foe each monitor.

    Now, you can still use the same resolution & number of colors on each screen, but 
now, WinXP/Win2K now understands that you have
2 different screens connected instead of 1 large wide screen.  Now the OS, will 
prevent these message windows from appearing right
in-between the 2 monitors.

|
| Using Matrox PowerDesk, version 6.82.016 if the Protel window is maximized
| it fills one monitor only.
|
| I have to 'restore' the window to a smaller size and then stretch it across
| both monitors.
|
| Annoying, perhaps I should revert to the earlier version. But I seem to
| remember having problems (crashes) with this earlier driver on my system,
| and I have had only one problem with the latest version:
|
| Protel is expanded across both desktops (as above) and I open a single
| schematic which is centred half on one desktop half on the other. When I go
| to place a part on the half of the schematic showing in the second monitor
| the part jumps to the middle of the second screen when the cursor is about
| 25% of the way across, (whilst the part is still being carried). Moving back
| across the 25% line the part jumps back under the cursor.
|
| As having one schematic open this way is annoying (I usually maximise Protel
| so it fills only one monitor when working with a single document) this is
| not really a problem for me.
