Can't switch monitors to correct locations

April 6, 2011 at 12:24:41
Specs: Windows XP
I have a 2nd monitor connected to my laptop, and suddenly they are switched. The Display Properties Settings shows the correct arrangement, but they are backwards in reality. I've tried changing the settings, but nothing works.

Try Safe mode Device Manager > Monitors.
Right click on the notebook one & select > Properties > General, down the bottom you have Device usage, select > Use this device (enable)
Now check the external monitor and make sure it is disabled. Click OK. Exit out and reboot.

Make sure all is Ok, then try adding the 2nd monitor again.
