There is probably not enough space from the previous 'div' to put yours beside it.  If your overall width is 1000px and the floated div before yours has a width of 400px, that only leaves 600px and your div would be too wide to fit there.

Can yo post the html and css info that precedes your right-aimed portion?

If it goes down, it is because it does not have enough space to stay in the top, so your surrounding code is needed.
Looking at your values (150, 190, 692) I would suspect that you have some 40px-height element with a width such that width+692px > window display width

I suggest you install xray in your browser (just a javascript bookmarklet that does not load too much the browser) and look at the different blocks with Xray.
