Identify new monitor and dont switch them


I have a problem, is this:
first, I turn on my pc with just one monitor pluged. I do a right click on desktop, then screen resolution... its shown just one monitor, with a big numer 1, when click on identify, is show a big numer 1 on entire monitor. So far is all right.
But when i plug a second monitor, the first one is automatically switch to 2, and the monitor i just pluged becomes a first one.
After plug second monitor, and then click on Identify, the first monitor, the one i turn on my pc, is show the number two, and the monitor i just plug is show the number one
im google about and find somrthing about EDID, think is something about this

Can someone know some trick to avoid this?
