dual monitor display - windows freeze when moved between displays

Here is the setup, a laptop in a docking station and a monitor, using both screens for a dual monitor setup.  When trying to drag a window from the monitor to the laptop monitor the window freezes between displays and we are unabe to close the window and try again.  It happens randomly but is very annoying.

It may be an overload on the video card. Try reducing the resolution on the external monitor. This may help.

Also try without docking, connect external monitor directly VGA port see if it helps.

It appears that the problem went away after the driver upgrade, it is a little early, we will continue to monitor the issue but for now will call it fixed.  Thanks.
