I have a Dell Precision M6500 with and ATI video card.  This annoying behavior just start a few hours ago.  I press Ctrl-1 and my active windows moves from monitor 2 to monitor 1.  Or vice-versa.  I've looked at the windows (Windows 7) display settings and at the ATI software and cannot find anyway to turn this off.  This fuction is messing up my program that uses Ctrl+1/Ctrl+2 to move to bookmarks within the program.

Please help!

have you checked the video software ? switch off nvidea shortcuts or accelerators
other things like ctrl-down (upside down view) may happen too

winamp can cause things like this too

Thanks for the try.  I cannot find any accelerators for my ATI.  I've gone into the Advanced Settings -> ATI Catalyst Control Center and looked there.  Maybe I'm just missing it.

Any other ideas?

Thank you for the suggestions.  I finally found the problem.  I had tried a StarTech USB to VGA adapter and that installed a driver that caused the problem.  I found the configuration utility in the Notification area (by the clock) on my desktop.  In my case, I uninstalled the driver and the problem went away.
