    HOLY CRAP!
    whats up dude?
    haven't heard from you in months!

    anyway, did you try removing your second monitor from the hardware list then adding it again?
    that might fix the conflict.
    PHP and XML

    1) Reformat, install a real OS.
    2) Check your device manager to see if you have a resource conflict.
    3) Unplug the second monitor, reboot, shutdown. Plug it back in, reboot.

    What have you tried so far other than what you mentioned? Sounds like a hardware thing, because I'd imagine if it was a driver problem, your first monitor would be screwed up too.
