Windows 7: My monitors seem to be detected in incorrect order!?!?

My monitors seem to be detected in incorrect order!?!?

Maybe someone can help me. I have a GTX295, and my main monitor is plugged into the right plug while my TV into the left. For Nvidia the right plug (when facing front of the computer) was always considered Monitor #1, for what ever reason...

The strange thing is that these new Nvidia drivers seem to mess things up... Although While booting the post shows only on (2nd plug) which is monitor 1, while in Windows it detects it backwards... It detencs 2nd plug as monitor 2...

Does this make any sense?? It's really annoying. Is there a way of changing this??

You can open your display settings and select the monitor you want as primary and then check the box to set as primary underneath.
