Windows 7: Win7- Display Positioning, will not stay stacked

Win7- Display Positioning, will not stay stacked

Trying to get my Win7 LT to maintain the Display positions using
Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution

I have my Dell M6700 LT internal display, and 4 external displays all running 1920 x 1080, 2D applications only
Adapters>>Dell docking station 1 VGA, 1 DP and 2 USB 3.0 to VGA(off the LT)

Physical Orientation:
Blank, Mon4, Mon5
LT , Mon2, Mon3

In Screen Resolution screen positioning I start with all 5 screens in a row--LT 1, 2, 3, 4, 5
I can move the monitors into this position in Win7 Screen Resolution screen positioning and apply but after about 5 seconds the LT moves the Screen Resolution screen positioning them in a different order and in a row again--LT1, 4, 2, 5, 3
Has anyone seen this before???

Does Win7 save desktop icon positioning for different resolutions?
I just got my PC back after 3 1/2 weeks of a nightmare involving the motherboard going bad and taking two processors with it. While troubleshooting/fixing it, the PC was hooked up to a 1024x768 monitor (mine is 1280x960), and so the desktop icons rearranged. Although a small hassle in the...
