2 Monitors and settings/resolution won't stick

I have two monitors - one is hooked up through the usb port using something called SIIG.

Every morning I either have to go into the control panel to adjust my display to show on two screens (extend my windows deskotp onto this monitor) but most of have to reset the screen resolution (I prefer 1280 by 1024). How can I get this to "stick"?

What type of monitors do you have? What type of connections does each monitor have? I see you have a 5xxx series ATI card, have you tried connecting both monitors to your GPU using DVI cables and setting up monitors in the CCC.

Help ! W7 won't allow monitors resolution
It SHOULD be 1680x1050 and if I use NVidea's control, W7 just refuses with a white box on a black background saying what I'd just bloody put in is the "optimum setting" at 60hz, every setting should work and doesn't. Could anyone help ?
