[Multiple monitors] Desktop icons move around each restart!
Hello everyone! Not sure if this is the right forum, I had to decide between this and Customisation, but this seemed more applicable.
Anyway, whenever I restart my computer, all my desktop icons move around to really weird locations. I don't have that many icons, but I'm a clean freak, so when they move out of place it sincerely pisses me off
Here are the specs:
Asus G74SX built-in monitor: 1920x1080
External monitor: Acer X203H, 1600x900
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M 3GB VRAM
The icons all stay on my main monitor (the one on my laptop) but they are often jumbled far out of place, such as this example: http://i.imgur.com/Kqtpp.jpg
And here's how they're actually supposed to be oriented: http://i.imgur.com/1TMe7.jpg
As you can see, there's quite a difference XD
Also, if it helps any, the external moderator is connected via VGA and it's positioned to the left of my laptop.

Doing a simple google search, I keep running into your same situation. A laptop with an external monitor being used that has two different native resolutions and this seems to be causing the problem. As for a fix for it...every thing I read so far comes up nill. This is not to say that there's not a fix for it, I haven't ran across it yet.
How lock/pin desktop icons once they are arranged?

If also found that there are some nifty little third part apps that will do the trick as well. Scroll through this thread and check out the links.
