Windows 7: How to force OS to think monitor is connected when I disconnect it?

How to force OS to think monitor is connected when I disconnect it?

I have a problem;

My MediaCenter pc is connected through a Surround Receiver to the TV. Every time I choose for example xbox instead of mediacenter on my receiver, the mediacenter thinks I have disconnected the main monitor and changes my secondary 7inch on-case touchscreen to be my main monitor. But, the 7inch monitor can only handle 800x600res, so it goes white. Meaning I will have to restart the computer to see what I'm doing.

How can I force my OS to always keep sending signals to both my monitors, the receiver (tv) and the 7inch touchscreen?

thanks for the help
