    Which monitor is the master? Some games (aka Unreal turn 2003) will only run on the master. Same with the dvd player. Others will run on either. Try switching the master display, you can do it under system prefs:displays:Arrangement - just drag the white bar to the other monitor. Hope this helps.

    Fixed it , the master screen was the monitor and wasn't showing games on it , but if i set the screen res on the game to say 1600x1024 it went from the pb screen and switch to the bigger screen .
