I use two monitors (different makes and models but the same 1280x1024 resolution) on my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 system. The GPU is an nVidia GeForce 8600GTS, using driver version 188.8.131.5226 dated 3 August 2011.
Whever I boot the system, Monitor 1 appears to the right of monitor 2, but on my phiscal desktop, monitor 1 is on the left and monitor 2 on the right. I go into the control panel and drag them into the correct order and check the 'make this my primary display' for monitor 1. Great! everything works exactly as I want.
But next time I boot, it's all gone back to the previous arrangement. Frustrating! This is not a problem I've seen before with Windows 7, normally it works very well, remembers my settings and gets everything right. So I think something is wedged.
Any insights on putting this right? How do I get my settings to 'stick'?
