dual monitors/switch

I have a dual monitor setup, primary is HP 19" and secondary is HD Gateway 19". I wanted to make my secondary monitor my primary..easy enough, I just switched them and moved DVI connections accordingly, to make identifing 1 and 2 as it was before. Using Windows 7 screen resolution, the primary and secondary monitors show correctly as 1 and 2 with the swap that took place. In my CCC, it's showing as 2 and 1. How can I get this to identify correctly? Windows is gateway 1 and HP 2 and ATI/AMD has it gateway 2 and HP 1. The physical postions of the monitors is gateway 1 (left) and HP 2 (right). I dont get it.

Mine shows the same as yours but I don't find it a problem as I only use the CCC I can only suggest picking one method to use and then changing the monitors around to fit

Need KVM to switch dual monitors to 2 cpus
Please recommend a simple(manual?) KVM to switch dual monitors between 2 different cpus. Prefer USB for KB and wireless mouse and VGA for monitors, using Win7 (although DVI is ok). I don't need to switch audio.
