Question Dual Screen Problems

I recently added another screen to my system. Everything was fine until yesterday when I decided to fool around with some things. Now I can't get it back the way I want. I want both screens to act as one, which they were doing before. The screen saver will only come up on one screen and usually the wallpaper would be stretched across both screens like it was one widescreen. Any help is greatly appreciated. I think the resolution was set to 2800 X 1600 or something around that.
