Using WIndows 7 Professional.
When user is at office, some reports appear in second monitor.  But, when they are at home, the reports continue to appear in second monitor and user cannot drag it back to main or see the report.  Was wondering easiest way to avoid this issue.

Computer probably thinks that the second monitor is engaged

You can press the windows button plus a directional key to move the windows around.

try looking at the graphics card and see if anything is goofy

What brand of laptop is this? Most laptops have a shortcut key to switch between laptop display and external screen (and combinations). Try and use that key. If you can't find it, try the Windows key together with the P key. You should get a popup where you can choose 'Computer Only'. If there's no display try: Windows+P - Home - Enter.
