I have a Dell Optiplex 980 machine. Two monitors (17 in. and 22 in.) are attached to it. The smaller one was attached from begning, later on I added the larger one. The smaller one on left as primary monitor and larger one on right as secondary monitor (with desktop extended on both monitors).

Yesterday I re-organized my workspace and I have to move larger one on the left. I set the large monitor as primary in Display Properties dialog. It is fine with only glitch that I have to take my mouse cursor on the smaller monitor from left edge of the larger (primary) monitor.

I tried by inter-changing the connecting cables but Windows 7 still refuses to believe that larger monitor is on the left and smaller one on the right side.

Please help.

In the panel where you set which monitor is primary, just drag them into their correct positions. –  David Schwartz May 8 '12 at 5:50
