I have a small IBM thinkpad (10inch screen) running Windows 2000 and for some reason, when I turned it on recently the desktop stretches outside the display. I can see it all by moving the pointer to the right edge and scrolling the rest of the display in while losing the left side. Went into display in control panel but couldn't find a fix.
Any thoughts?
Thanks

It seems I am in dual monitor mode but in display/settings it only shows the one monitor and I can't seem to find a way to get my entire desktop back onto the screen....

When I use a screen saver, and view in tile mode, I get two of the same screen saver, side by side. One has my desktop settings and I move over to the other for my startup menu -lower toolbar stretches between them, bridging them. Odd
