Windows 7: Changing monitor identities on windows 7?

Changing monitor identities on windows 7?

I have an ATI HD 6950 with 2 dvi monitors and 1 hdmi tv. Whenever I press the Win Key + P and choose "Computer Only" the picture goes to the hdmi output which is not what I want. I've tried messing with Catalyst trying to change the identities for the monitors but Computer Only option always goes to HDMI because it's identified as number 1. When I choose "Projector Only" the picture goes back to my 2 dvi monitors extended. How do I change this?

I want when I select Computer Only to only have picture on one of my DVI monitors and Projector Only on the TV Monitor.
