    Um
    Things that might work?

    Device Manager -> check to make sure there's no extra installed monitors or display adapters
    Try installing the newest drivers?
    Use another utility like Persistent Windows or AMM which should(?) give you persistent position across power cycle.

    I have all my hdmi displays running through an hdmi switch, and my display port displays plugged directly to graphics cards, so maybe windows is getting a keepalive from the switch, which is why I haven't run into the issue using mixed displayout issues?

    For anybody that was stuck waiting in the Judith study Friday morning - trying to figure out if there is a way to REVIEW a returned HIT that was then bonused as compensation? After waiting for 20 mins for another participant, emailed requester and she sent over two different links to try to get into a study. I immediately responded to both, received errors and sent her back the errors. She quickly responded and sent:
    "Thank you for your email. There is a mistake in the link in the previous email, my apologies for that. I will make sure you receive the payment to compensate you for your time and effort."
    I then later received this:
    "You've received a bonus from Judith. The value of your bonus is: $6.80 USD"
    I don't think there is a way for me to review the requester with a returned HIT other than just let people here know what happened? I've tried it on old HIT's that took awhile to bonus and that didn't work... but wanted to at least give her a thumbs up for responsiveness and the bonus when things went sideways.

    Latest driver is installed for both monitors and GPU (although the main monitor says PnP generic) as determined by windows (asus doesn't have drivers for the VG27AQ). Tried uninstalling to reinstall it and nothing changed.

    Persisten windows brings the windows back to were they were but doesn't prevent the shuffling. AMM does nothing.

    And I don't know about the mixing of connections, as my second monitor is DP-DVI, so that might be it. Doesn't happen when I connect my main monitor via HDMI, but I lose the G-sync capability...

    And this "feature" from windows seem to be a well known issue and I haven't found any help online (yet).

    Imagine a bed with cheese designed sheets, pepperoni style blanket, and a pillowcase that looks like a pizza roll.

    So I have this $80 HIT in my queue. The instructions say that I have to rate 196 essays, and that if even one essay is missed or skipped the HIT might be rejected, but there are only 195 essays on the spreadsheet that I was linked to. Row one only has the column headings in it, no actual essay. Did anyone else catch this HIT? Does anyone actually have 196 essays? I wrote an email to the requester, of course, and am waiting for a reply. I'm just curious as to whether anyone else is seeing the same thing I am.

    @SAJ is actually a hardcore Red Sox and Boston sports fan. I’m the Astros fan :, living in Houston. I’m glad they’ve tied the series now. Still two games to go.

    sports... highs and lows and highs and lows

    bloop did an hour and 38 minutes ago. unless there is a different $80 hit people are catching at night on a weekend. not going to tag bloop in case it isn't the same hit but you can.

    Thank you for your response. The HIT has a long timer, so this can wait until tomorrow. For my own peace of mind I think I would rather hear something back from the requester anyway. Do you know if bloop's submission was approved?
