Dual Monitor Video Projecting Problem

I am having a problem with my video players projecting from the screen it is on to the other screen.

Here is what I have. Dell M90 laptop that I have set as the default monitor. This has the Quadro FX 2500M video card in it. I have a Dell 19" LCD that is set as the secondary monitor. I get there via DVI from my docking station.

If I open a video in Winamp, WMP, of even picview (a preview program), it projects its video full screen to the other monitor. And like I say it goes either way, it doesn't matter which monitor the video is opened from.

I have a friend that has a very simalar setup but his 19" is the default monitor and he has the same problem, so I don't think its a matter of which is default.

When I was using a desktop and dual monitors I didn't have the problem.

Any Ideas?
