Windows 7: Dual monitors positions reset after every reboot.

Dual monitors positions reset after every reboot.

I have two monitors, a Samsung SyncMaster S24B300 (1080p) in landscape mode, and an Envision H193WK (1440x900) in portrait mode. The 1080p monitor is aligned to the right of the other one. I set them to -900, -100 and they align perfectly (mouse travels straight across screens), but despite saving these settings, the monitors reset to -900, 0 after every reboot. Any ideas? I can provide pictures or more information if needed.

Pardon me for being stupid, but what does "-900, -100" and "900, 0" mean?

If you right click on your desktop, and have multiple monitors, you can move around the two monitors relative to each other. -900, -100 and so on are the positions in terms of pixels for the monitors relative to each other.

It must be something unique to your graphics driver or system. I tried and couldn't do that.

EDIT: Scratch that. I have the same driver as you do.
