comment Windows 7 swaps screen contents upon de-hibernation
@avirk: My situation is slightly different than edmx's. Mine occurs after a reboot and I just confirmed it does NOT happen after hibernation. I happened to offer a bounty on this because my situation is very similar to edmx's.

Thanks, running Catalyst 11.6 and still experience the same issue. On this last reboot it seemed to revert after I started the login process. While I waited on the login screen for the Ctrl+Alt+Del message it was ok, I enter my password and hit enter and it reset. Agh!

It was never using the ATI catalyst drivers, just the inbox Windows 7 drivers (and anything through Windows Update). I installed 11.6 catalyst and still the same issue. Though this time it seemed to apply after I started to log in, the layout was fine as I waited on the login screen.

I'll try it again. Tried it about a month ago with Catalyst 11.5 and it bluescreened Windows 7 when detecting the card. (Go figure, my first BSOD in a long, long time)

Unfortunately it did not work. It was pretty neat watching Windows reposition the monitors as I changed inputs while it was plugged in (so the layout was automatically correct after switching) but the problem persisted. After reboot it looked like it was ok and then partway through typing in my password it reset again. Thanks for the suggestion!

I'll give it a shot tomorrow morning but something had changed. For over a year it was fine and then about a month or two ago it started acting up like this.

@soandos: for mine, yes. It stays at 1280x1024 for both (yay 5:4!...) Mine is a ATI Radeon HD 3400, monitor 2 is the primary with monitor 1 to the left. When I reboot, monitor 2 keeps the taskbar (stays primary) but monitor 1 moves to the right.

I have the same exact issue - haven't tested hibernate but it happens on every reboot. Pisses me off. What's worse? If you're moving your mouse as it starts up, the layout is correct then, just as you get the prompt to log in it changes back.
