I have two monitors VGA connected to my Windows 7 system.  I have two VGA connections on the back of my computer.  Both monitors are working okay.  However, when I want to locate the cursor on the left screen I have to move the mouse to the far right and then the cursor appears on the left screen.  When I want to locate the cursor on the right screen I have to move the mouse to the far left and the then the cursor appears on the right screen.  This is counter intuitive and frustrating to say the least.  How might I correct this problem?
Thanks,
Capreol
