Thank you Mike,
I'm running 1920x1200 primary and 1680x1050 secondary. I wonder if the
difference in size is causing problems now where in the past it did not?
Otherwise, our hardware is very close:
lspci | grep GeForce
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G84 [GeForce 8600 GT]
And I'm just running the current software:
pacman -Qi nvidia | grep Version
Version : 270.30-3
pacman -Qi kernel26 | grep Version
Version : 184.108.40.206-1
