Multiple Monitors One Freezes

I have two monitors plugged into a laptop running XP SP3.  I choose the "Extend Windows Desktop onto this Monitor".   If I start a camera monitoring program on the laptop screen, it runs just fine.  Once I drag it to the other monitoir, it freezes.  If I drag it back, it unfreezes.

Any ideas as if this is fixable?

I don't think so.  One is the laptop monitor (small maybe 14 inches). The other is like a 19 in wide monitor.  But they are both set to 1024x768.

Turned out to be an issue with our application.  Thanks for the suggestion though!
