Reasonably priced 19" or 20" monitor, not wide-screen?

Q: Reasonably priced 19" or 20" monitor, not wide-screen?

My dell 1905fp finally crashed after a lot of years. I'm not a gamer, but I was very happy with that monitor.

Of course they no longer make it, and I understand refurbished monitors of this type are not necessarily a good option.

I can't seem to find reviews or comparisons which point the way to other similar monitors. I'm retired and just can't afford the $600 and way up price of what I've seen so far.

I just need a basic monitor with VGA and DVI, but would like the screen performance to be decent, incl for watching movies etc.

Any recommendations, and where to get a reasonable price? Again, don't want a wide screen.

Thanks much!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Nothing wrong with buying refurbs. They may have a few blemishes in the frame but nothing serious to keep them from functioning. I've bought a few myself and have had no issues with them. Although the monitors I bought were 20" widescreens that averaged $120 or less. For what you need/want, I wouldn't spend more than $150.

I know you said no widescreen, but movies do view better on widescreen.

Just got a new monitor as above and although great resolution etc., everything takes on an oblong or extended horizontal view.

I guess this only what can be expected with these new monitors?

For example, in all my pictures etc. the object is obviously distorted (though only slightly).

I have a 150 cm Plasma Telly that has the same appearance so other than shrinking up the horizontal size of the monitor screen, this is just normal?

HI;

I have 2 monitors on my Dell Studio XPS with a Radion 5700 series card. I'm doing more video editing now and I would like to add a 3rd monitor.

I'm finding out there are not that many Display Port monitors to choose from.

I know that the Apple monitors are DisplayPort and they are nice screens, but they are very $$$.

Can you suggest anything under $500 with a DisplayPort in the 23" to 27" size range?

Thanks Much

Jamie

I have a typical 19" LCD monitor and a nvidia GeForce4 MX4000 video card. I would like to upgrade to a 22" Wide Screen LCD. I noticed that the max pixels on my present card is 1280x1024. I think the new LCD is 1680x1950. I am using Windows 2000 pro and the motherboard is a 2.4 Ghz. Do I need to get a new video card to support the new monitor? I use the computer for general stuff, day to day, like word processing, excel, and net surfing, nothing exotic or fast.

I bought three of these netbooks for my kids for christmas. They are using windows CE. I'm not a "techy" so I hope I post all important info....I've read through the manuals and followed all the steps. The computers all show that they are connected to my router, however, when I click on the IE is says "page cannot be displayed, no DNS server found" I've put in the wep key info, as well as the primary and secondary DNS numbers, the IP address and everything. As I said it shows connected, but it won't connect. I called our internet provider and they were at a loss. I've also tried connecting w/ an ethernet cable. It's like there is a switch or button or something that is preventing full internet exchange. Has anyone had this problem or have any suggestions? Thanx, Jessica

A:Need help with "extra-wide" PC notebook displays

It really depends as much on the graphics card as the screen itself, and there is no reliable way to know. You have to see it setup and play with the display settings.
However, If you select a true high end laptop should be fine. Others will make the images look stretched, but user quickly get used to it. One would think that 1080p would be a guarantee of good screen performance, but it is not.
If you are getting a computer that is in the upper third of its price and model range, you usually get the good screen combination in my experience... HP, Dell, Sony, and Lenovo anyway. You will have to avoid budget laptops.

Help - I'm running Windows 7 Home premium. About three weeks ago, when waking from a sleep mode, the monitor would make a slight popping sound, then would flash the monitor logo several times before the home screen appeared.

This problem is worsening -- and is now happening on startup too, i.e., the monitor will pop and flash its logo for several minutes before the computer is ready.

I have had trouble-shooting suggestions from HP that involved resetting the screen saver, resetting sleep mode, and doing a system restore -- none of those seemed to help my problem.

Any suggestions?

A:Black (literally off) screen - related to "phantom" monitor?

Ah hah! This is definitely the main problem I've been having now! Even with my Intel HD graphics disabled, upon reboot Windows think it finds a second monitor when there isn't one there. Not only that but it makes it the PRIMARY monitor so you can't see anything. You have to just key in your password / PIN, then it will bring you to the desktop.

The question is how the heck do I get rid of this thing permanently!

first of all, the problem we are having is not with the monitor, as we have just checked it and it works fine on another computer, so, that being said, here is our problem.

when we turn the computer on it begins to boot up, goes into the Windows welcome screen, then the screen flicks off (even shows the orange light like the monitor is not working) and it displays the message "burn in mode". This message is in a blue box and the rest of the screen is black.

If we turn the computer off and try again, the exact same thing happens.

sorry, I am not technical, so this was the best way I could describe what was happening.

hope someone can help
 

A:"burn in mode" on black monitor screen

Some motherboards have a "burn in" option. What is really happening is that the fsb [front side bus] is being overclocked by 5-10%

Have you tried to enter the bios and set defaults?

Has this always happened or was some hardware / software added or removed?

Is this a custom build or is it a mfg computer?

I started successfully my Windows 7+SP1 with newest patches
and can work normally.

Then I turn off my TFT monitor (not the running computer).
Win7 continues to work (as hard disc LED indicator and remote control tools prove).

Later I try to turn on my monitor again.
But much to my surprise the screen stays dark.
Just a moving indicator tells me now "No input signal".

Whats worng?

On a WinXP and another WIndows 7 computer (all with the same monitor) everything works fine. The desktop is shown again after returning to on.
So the hardware is not damaged.
I always have to reboot again to re-show the Windows desktop.

As far as I can rememeber in the first time the Win7 in focus system works as well but then I must have changed some settings.

I am using a motherboard with a core-i5 and H67 chipset with built-in graphic processor. So I have no separate graphic card.

It is likely to be the power settings for your monitor:

Press Start:
Type in the 'Search Programs and Files' box "Power Options" (without the " ").

Select the Power Options link offered in the list.
Then, 'Change when the computer sleeps' and from the drop-down menu for your monitor choose 'Never'.

It sounds like your system is not booting. As a quick test of your monitor, connect it to the system you are using now. That will tell you if the monitor is working or not.

A:PC monitor screen is black & says "Out Of Range"

Repeatedly press F8 while the system is booting.. The very first stuff you see on screen will either be your motherboard splash screen or some text. When you get to the menu where you can make a selection, choose VGA mode NOT Safe Mode. That will boot your computer at 640x480, but it will boot with full driver support, just as if things were normal. Change the resolution to what you want after that.

Remember if you change it to something that goes 'out of range' DO NOT touch anything for 15 seconds. It will revert back to what it was after that time and you can try again.

Unrelated.. Go to school at UMR? or different Miner?

Are all new games capable of supporting 16:9 resolution or am I better of with monitor that has resolution 1920x1200. (16:10)

Any comments and suggestion are welcome

It's a nightmare..... can someone point me in the right direction please.

I've been trying to fix for a while with no luck, I've attached a screenshot, as it says a thousand words (although you can't read all of them :>)

thanks

A:program "windows" are not wide enough. HELP PLS

thanks for the reply, as well as text, my problem is that there are buttons that I can't reach... I'll skim around the registry and hope to find the 'window width' setting' it must be fixe instead of variable or something.

Hi everyone

My first post on these boards, I hope I can explain this well.

I'm not a genius with PCs, but I know my way around, so don't worry about getting technical.




Ok here goes:

My wife's PC is working fine, windows xp loads up, POST is good, everything is fine with the computer in that sense.

My Problem is this. Her monitor just went blank all of a sudden. Basically, the monitor is on, and the buttons to adjust the size/contrast/brightness/etc is viewable on the screen when I push them... but it remains blank like the screen saver "Blank". From boot up, to windows and everything in between.

Anyone ever have this problem? I was told it might be the Video Card...

Asus P4S533 1.8 ghz
ATI 8500DV
 

A:**"Blank" screen, but monitor is on**

I'd update the video drivers to the latest version and also the chipset drivers.
See if that helps... Also, what sort of PSU do you have?

Hi.

I accidentally pulled the plug out of my computer when it was in the middle of shutting down. Now that I've tried to reboot it, I get a screen saying:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode With Networking
Safe Mode With Command Prompt

Start Windows Normally

Whenever I click on any of the options above, I always ends up back at the same screen, suggest the above options again. I've tried rebooting I again a few times but nothing works?

Any ideas?

Hey guys.
Can you pleas explain me what does Hardware Acceleration means and why is that when it is turned on, it causes a green screen on the video (with audio working).
It happened to me once in YouTube, where I had to go in to settings and unpick the "Enable Hardware Acceleration", then it worked!
And 2nd time similar thing happened in Cyberlink PowerDirector 10, when I imported .mp4 and flv video files and it showed me green screen with audio. After unpicking "Enable Hardware Decoding " it was fixed.
My Sony VAIO has:
CPU - Intel Core i5 M430 2.27GHz
RAM - 4GB
GPU - AMD Radeon HD 6500M/5600/5700
Does this mean that I have a problem with my hardware, or maybe I need to set up something??? to ba able to use Hardware Acceleration. As I understand I should be able to use it!!??

Thank you
Have a nice day

A:Enabled "Hardware Acceleration" causes "green screen"

I don't know what the problem is but the only time I had this issue is when I installed a VM and get black screen on youtube so I had to enable that.

My office just upgraded and I can no longer use Windows XP On this system I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain I had them installed in opposite vertical margins and they "Launchpads", to "Toolbars" for "Docks" (MSese "TASKBARS" NOT add Need were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin and BAM Sorry for the cliche but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up and I just don't think I Need to add "TASKBARS" (MSese for "Launchpads", "Docks" NOT "Toolbars" can be as efficient without anything comparable Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows GUI and it's making me sick with rage I see only the option to put a quot toolbar quot on an existing quot taskbar quot and no option to create any additional taskbars This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient much less cool about this at all I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues but I see none such in W I have tried every google search string that I can think of and found no answer that deals with anything other than adding that stupid toolbar to the only taskbar that Microsoft will allow you in W So If I'm wrong and have missed some options how do I access them Otherwise I'm hoping there are developers who know what I am talking about and have software to enable the creation of separate taskbars launchpads Can anybody help with either

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hi,

I am using an Acer 22" widescreen monitor, (x223w) and since I have it I have been getting the "input not supported" error message while booting.
I never took the time to look it up, but today I did. I found lots and lots of solutions, but none fixed it.

What I did learn, is that many people have trouble with this monitor, and get the same error. And in a lot of the cases, it had something to do with the maximum resolution supported by the video card, and the resolution set on the monitor.

I have looked up the maximum res. of my VC, (Nvidia Geforce 8500GT) and it was 2048x1536. So why would the resolution of 1680x1050 bother it?

My OS is Windows XP

Does anyone have a solution for this?
 

A:"input not supported" in boot acer 22" ws monitor

Hi

its not what the video card can output, its what the monitor can handle

If you try to get the monitor to run at a higher rate than it can handle, it wont work and goes blank. this is why XP gives you the 15 seconds to agree to the change....

I have read several threads with similar problems and it seems that the "blue screen" of old Windows crashes has been replaced with the "black screen of death". Anyway, I'm trying to get an older HP running. I get the Windows splash screen then the above described "black screen". I get this in "safe mode", also. I'm starting to lean towards the hard drive and will start trying to find out what brand it is and go to their web site and see if they have a utility program to check it. If anyone has any suggestions, they will be appreciated...

It's running Windows XP Home with 128mg of ram; just a basic box, nothing special...Thanks in advance, dm

A:New Computer - "Black Screen" - Fan "Ramps Up"

Seems like a thermal shutdown to me. When CPU/GPU overheats, the system either reduces their clock in order to cool them down or does a hard shutdown to protect the hardware. You said you OCed your hardware. Make sure that your are running the CPU/GPU at stock clocks and not overcloking them and also make sure the cooling system is working properly (ie, the fans) and air is flowing good. Thanks for reading.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look at this Microsoft article: How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

When the system file checker runs it creates a log file, which should help you pinpoint which file couldn't be repaired.

However, if you can't get into Windows you might want to check this tutorial: Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

Did your partner create a set of Dell recovery discs or does she have a Windows 7 DVD?

If all else fails, you may have to re-install Windows.

I just purchased a new PC for the first time in years. For many years I have been running my Dell Trinitron 17" CRT at a resolution of 800 x 600. The reason for this resolution was because I need the text to be a little bit bigger. Anything higher than that and everything is just too small for me.

Now.. my new PC comes with a 20" (widescreen) LCD monitor. It's obviously a little bit bigger than my Dell. What do you think would be a good resolution setting to work with that will enable the text to be a little bit bigger just as I had when I set my older monitor to 800 X 600.

Evidently most people have much better vision than me because almost no one I know goes with an 800 x 600 setting even if they do have an older monitor.

Any input on this would be very much appreciated.

Thank You

A:Monitor "resolution" suggestions for new 20" (widescreen).

Generally when you use the newer monitors the program will suggest the appropriate resolutions. I think we all use various resolutions dependent upon what we use the computer for. Videos require a higher resolution than other things. Go into your control panel and find your settings and determine what you want and can best use and or see. The higher the resolution the smaller the pixels and the smaller the resolution, (i.e., 800 x 600), the larger the pixels. In today's technology with the online graphics medium resolutions would probably be your best bet.
Check out the options for resolutions and determine your likes.

ps: congrats on your new buy. Hope you enjoy it.

Hi everyone!

Yesterday my HP laptop (Windows 7) started getting BSOD with various types of errors (mostly "STOP: 0x00000F4", "STOP: 0x0000007A", "c00021a" and one "missing %hs, c0000135"). Most of the time it restarts without any issues and works fine right after the BSOD and then an hour or two later I get a BSOD again.

I have tried restoring to Last Known Good Configuration, startup repair, hard disk check, virus scans and I also uninstalled any recently added programs I could think of and cleared up more than 50% of my hard disk space. None of these seem to have helped and I still get BSOD regularly.

I have attached the folder from the SF Diagnostic Tool and would appreciate any advice!
Thank you!

Hello all,
I have a Phillips 32" LCD (model # 32TA2800/98) that I connect my laptops to with a VGA cable. I usually had my Gateway NV53A (AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series Graphics card) connected and I never had a problem. Recently I connected my Samsung to the monitor and again, had no problems. When I reconnect my gateway the PC detects the monitor but the monitor does not detect the PC. If I switch back to the Samsung it works fine. I have reset the TV to factory default the only way I know how (owners manual). I have unplugged the power cable to the TV for 10 min+. I have changed from a 14 pin VGA to a 15 pin. I have updated all drivers.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!

It appears this one has got them all stumped. I really need help with this one and I am at a total loss. I would be forever in someones debt.

Could it be that the TV has a capacitor that holds the settings for an extended period of time? Maybe I should leave it unplugged for 24-48 hours?

I am in need of a new monitor. I am thinking of a 20 or 22 inch wide screen,but my wife and I only use the PC for web surfing and E-Bay transactions(buying and selling). Is there any advantage or disadvantage for a wide screen for this use? Due to poor eyesight I currently run my 17" CRT at 800x600,with large fonts,but this limits the amount of data I can display.
 

A:Need new monitor Wide Screen or not?

The bigger the screen the more stuff you can display, obviously, but the downside with LCDs is that they can look distorted and blurry if they aren't displayed at the native resolution. This means that if you want to avoid the blurryness and distortion you must run it at the appropriate high resolution. This won't cause too much of a problem if you don't play high-end games, but if you do then you need to make sure you buy a nice GPU or else you have to choose between poor performance or blurryness and distortion. You may be able to find an LCD that looks fine at a lower than native resolution, but it totally depends on the monitor. You may also be able to play games at lower resolutions by not using the entire screen, but I think this depends on if your GPU supports it. If you're worried about fonts being too small, you can always increase the font size. In web browsers it's as simple as ctrl + mouse wheel scroll.

Unless your monitor is failing you don't 'need' a new one. It's all about want. If you want a new one then get one, if not then don't. For Gaming I suggest 2-5ms response time, 3000:1 contrast ratio (or higher), and for just web browsing I feel that nearly any response time and contrast ratio provides acceptable quality, though you may want to look for at least 1000:1 contrast ratio since you have less than perfect vision. The main thing to look for is a 3 year (or more) parts and labor warranty and a low limit on dead pixels for it to be considered defective (mine is 8). I would not suggest buying any monitor without a 3 year parts and labor warranty (unless you're planning on destroying for some reason), because if it isn't 3, then it is usually only 1. One year isn't long enough to prove it is quality built, especially if you don't use your computer often. In most cases, if it lasted 3 years it shouldn't have any problem lasting 3 more.

And yes, buy widescreen. No question about it. Widescreen gives you much, much better viewable area/cost ratio. The only real disadvantage is that all the view area isn't vertical, so you probably wont be able to make use of it while web browsing. You might be able to find a widescreen LCD that you can actually turn vertical so you get all that extra vertical space. I've never bothered to check since I game and it's nice to have a wider view. Maybe I'll check after work though, since that would be a good thing to know if it's possible.

Without being able to find the specs for your computer, I would say your graphics solution is not enough to handle the 1680x1050 resolution. Either you need to install a new graphics card (Radeon 3450 could be fine, silent, low power consumption, small) or use the monitor at 1440x900 resolution.

Thanks
 

A:New LCD logic 20" screen. When booting up pc comes up with "out of range" message

Did you uninstall the drivers for your previous monitor before installing the new one?

"out of range" is most commonly caused by a resolution\frequency setting that the monitor does not support.

A:KB3054476 offered as "Important"/"Recommended"/"Optional"

The status of updates changes with circumstances.
If an update isn't relevant, it won't be offered at all.
If however it's relevant but the related software is not apparently in use, it may be 'optional' - and gravitate to 'Recommended' or 'Important' if the related software is in use.
It can also be promoted through the hierarchy by MS depending on feedback through WU and error-trapped feedback.


If you have (and use) a webcam, then it's probably best to install the update.

I tried to associate the file extension .txt to a new editor program
with the well known cmdline programs ASSOC and FTYPE.

No, assigning them through WinExplorer menu does not work.
But this is another problem which should not discussed here.

When I type now one of the following alternative commands at the CommandPrompt then Win7 returns me something like:

assoc .txt=txtfile

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: .txt"

or

ftype txtfile=D:\notepad++\notepad++.exe "%%1"

"Access denied"
The following error occurs: txtfile"

Why?

The command above work fine under WinXP

You may want to reinstall the operating system.

Backupthe files that are importantto you before you reinstall.

The "New" installation will overwrite the current one

If you do not format your hard drive before the reinstall the installation should not harm your files (That's why I suggest backingup your files) and will speed up the installation process.

Running Core2 Duo Vista Ultimate 64 bit
Graphics card NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT

My old monitor was a 4:3 aspect 17" and worked fine until it crapped out - it started flashing on and off rapidly.

I bought a Samsung 19" 16:9 aspect monitor
Then I returned it and got an I-Inc 19" 16:9 aspect monitor

Both exhibited the same problem
Everything is great for color, etc
[Both are on sale under $90]

BUT, I cannot get the screen to scroll down so I can see the bottom inch or 2 of several programs [including WarQuest]

I have tried changing the resolution, but it doesn't seem to make a real change in the display when I do

Any suggestions?

You said that there was no dumb question but maybe this fits.

I bought a new widescreen laptop and the salesperson suggested a new 23" widescreen monitor. (ASUS VH235). I wanted a big screen as I do alot of CAD work. My problem is that everything is distorded in the width direction. Like in Word, an 8 1/2 x 11 page is almost square instead of rectangular and my CAD drawings are elongated sideways. Is there some setting that can get the width to height ratio inline with the real page?

Will the windows desktop icons and status bar adjust itself accordingly to fit the new widescreen space and will opening up packages like photoshop also adjust to fill the screen as well.

I currently have a standard 4:3 17" LCD monitor. I want to upgrade to 19" but I am unsure whether or not to get a widescreen monitor or a standard square one. I know it probably depends on what it is going to be used for, but I do a lot of different things, from games, to browsing the web, to website making, to video editing.

Should I take the safe bet of the 4:3 monitor ? Or is there a big advantage to 16:9 ? Please note I wont be doing much DVD viewing on it, only to check back videos I have edited (not to sit and watch for hours).

Any advice appreciated, thanks !

A:Graphics look like crap on wide screen monitor

Hi,

As the old saying goes with video encoding it is the same for playing videos, if you put crap in then you get crap out. IE if you play a video that is say made at a resolution of 320x480i then it is played on a screen that has a resolution of 1600x900, thus creating a stretched out video to fit the wide screen of the monitor you get pixellation (meaning the video is so stretched you can see the pixels) its gonna look horrible and there is really nothing you can do about it. You would need to re shoot the video with a camera that can make a video at a resolution the same or higher than that of your monitors output resolution. Such as 1080p HD resolution.

Hope this helps answer your question. (Also anyone feel free to correct me if i got anything wrong).

Hello.

I just bought new LCD. It is - ViewSonic va1912w - 19 inch - wide screen.
I used installation cd, followed all steps and installation was sucessfull. The monitor works properly only if it is set at 1440 x 900

At present i have no graphic card installed. But i have 512mb of ddr2 ram with 2.6 hgz intel processor.

After installing monitor... the highest resolution i can set is 1280x768. At present monitor is set at 1280x768 and result is horrible.

I tried reinstalling. but no change.
Then i went to direversguide.com and downloaded new drivers - installed it successfully and still maximum resolution shown is 1280x768. Now, if i dont set resolution to 1440x900 - results are really bad.

any hint on what should be done?

Thanks,
Romit

A:Solved: wide screen monitor adjustment

You need to right click somewhere on the Windows desktop then click Properties, then Settings. Use the slider to adjust the screen resolution to be the same as the recommended resolution for your monitor. If it won't let you increase the resolution, let us know what graphics adapter you have (manufacturer and model).

Here's a page I use to get info about widescreen gaming:

FYI - there are more games it can modify than those listed on the wiki page.

It's great for finding info about which games support it inherently and tools for forcing games to widescreen (EA is terrible about this.) Personally I use Universal Widescreen Patcher for forcing most of my PC games.

Hi there
the easiest way is to use WINDOWS + P and simply use the EXTEND option - then you can move things at will between the two monitors. Remember though the resolution will be that of the device having the SMALLEST resolution (not necessarily the smallest screen !!).

For different Backgrounds you could use the desktop program in the sysinternals suite - this gives up to 4 "Virtual desktops" that you can split out over the two monitors.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/s.../bb842062.aspx

Extract the DESKTOPS.EXE file - works on W8.1 too

Couple of Caveats with DESKTOPS.EXE though -- desktop version of IE only works from DESKTOP 1 - if you start IE again from desktop 2,3,4 then the windows are stacked up in desktop 1.

Charms etc only operate from primary desktop (desktop 1)

Toolbars, desktop icons etc all work correctly on each desktop with the exceptions outlined

Cheers
