Windows 7: Is there a way to save monitor set up profiles?

Is there a way to save monitor set up profiles?

I have a dual monitor set up (2560x1440 x2) with the color calibrated through an ICC profile.

I also have the computer hooked up to my Home Theatre (a single 1080p TV).

I want a way to quickly switch between the two without my settings/layout completely screwed up. What I noticed is that my color profiles get reset to default when I switch back to my dual monitor set up (after switching to the HT set up). When I go to "Calibrate Color", the profiles pop back in by themselves.

Also, my desktop icons get rearranged since it's normally 1440p then switches to 1080p so any desktop icon past the 1080p line gets pushed to the next column so when I go back to my monitors, the icon layout is off.

Hi Cyborg31,
Spec sheet for your monitor says it's 1920x1200. I don't connect my PC to my TV but do have experience with ICC & 2 monitors. I needed to have 2 separate video cards to have 2 separate ICCs. But, this could be different for you as you apparently have the same monitor brands whereas mine were different brands.

Have you considered 2 graphic cards; one devoted to your monitors & one for your TV?
