You didn't attach anything however check that the large "1" is on the actual monitor.  You can click the Identify button on the right and if the "1" is on your main display then change it from Extended to Show Desktop only on 1
i see no image attached but this is probably because your adapter has an extra output available (s-video or such)

s-video (or composite) outputs aren't plug'n'pray, so even if there isn't a display attached to it (as mentioned above by arana), the system will show a display attached. Just ignore it.

But my mouse just keep disappearing when I move it to the right side of the screen like there is another monitor and it takes sometimes to drag it back. It is annoying.

Change the setting from "extend these displays" to "duplicate this display" and you should stop having your mouse go off the screen, Leblanc!

Select your main display and then under Multiple displays use the "Show desktop on on x". Don't use duplicate as mentioned above, that would reduce your main display's resolution.
