Windows 7: When I re-dock, my display setting (the 2nd monitor) is missing.

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
When I re-dock, my display setting (the 2nd monitor) is missing.

I am encountering a different issue since the attempt to migrate the user folder to a different drive. I am on a laptop connected to two monitors via docking station. When I re-dock, my display setting (the 2nd monitor) is missing. I keep having to extend the main monitor to the 2nd display each time. Any idea on why and how I messed this up?

I needed to make the laptop display my main display and duplicate the "main" monitor and extend to the second.

display/monitor 1024768 display size
the display/monitor uses the generic driver for display and it is 1024768 or 800x600 but it looks very odd it should be bigger because my screen is bigger. I have a acer monitor but is there something I can download to fix the display size?
