Windows 7: 2nd Monitor

2nd Monitor

Hi,

I have a laptop with an external monitor connected via VGA. It works fine, except for the fact that Windows won't remember which side of the primary display I want it. Everytime I load Windows it puts the external display to the right of my laptop screen, but its physical location is to the left. So I have to change this everytime I load Windows. Can anyone help me? I want it to remember that it should be on the left!

Thanks a lot.

Yeh that's the thing. Everytime I load Windows I have to drag the screen to the left. The problem is that Windows doesn't remember it - I have to do that everytime.
