Why do my Windows apps run in Bootcamp not work on my second monitor?

I am a newbie to Mac and still learning. I have a Macbook Pro with a second monitor. I have a few games on Windows, which I kept and installed Bootcamp to play them. When I first installed Bootcamp, everything was fine and my Windows game icons all showed up on my laptop as well as my second monitor.

Then, all of a sudden they disappeared from the second monitor and now I only get XP desktop with no icons and cannot play my games on the second monitor. I did everything I could through Bootcamp help, but no success. Can anyone help me please?

    I have managed to fix this problem myself. Not sure what I did but it was something to do with the NVIDIA displays. Anyway it is now working fine.
