Windows 7: Windows always starts on the wrong monitor

11 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Windows always starts on the wrong monitor

I'm not sure where to put this post, so I'm putting it here. I have a dual monitor setup, an HP LP2275w as my primary monitor and a Viewsonic P95F+ CRT as my secondary monitor that I switch on from time to time. My problem is that when windows starts, it always goes to the secondary CRT monitor, even if it's off. I have them set up correctly in the display settings where my LCD is the the main monitor, 1, and the CRT is 2. I also have this set correctly in the nvidia control panel, but I get the same problem every time windows starts.

Is there a way to fix this?
