Windows 10: False Dual Monitor Display....

    False Dual Monitor Display....

    So, I've just upgraded to Windows 10 and I got past the whole black screen of death after the initial boot up. I have an Alienware X51 with a GTX 750ti Graphics card and Intel i5 cpu.

    Now, I read on a post earlier that the drivers are set up to a certain setting to where you can't see the login but you can still type it in and log on. I did that, but now the problem for me is I'm trying to upgrade my Nvidia drivers to the windows 10 update but I can't see any of the windows that I open!

    ABSOLUTELY NOTHING SHOWS UP ON MY MONITOR, but I can open the programs and see on the task bar that they are indeed open and running just fine. Is there a way to fix this without updating my drivers yet?

    One more thing, I put my mouse to the very left side of my screen to where it disappeared and I clicked and dragged the google chrome icon to the part of my monitor where I can actually see things. This is the whole False Dual Monitor display thing. I'm guessing all the windows are over on that side and I need to somehow get them to MY monitor?

    You might see if the tutorial below may be able to help drag the windows back over. :)

Overall I'm delighted with Windows 10 but I have one relatively minor problem with my dual monitors. The taskbar on the second monitor won't auto-hide. It just sits there. Any suggestions?
