Lenovo T61 running Windows XP.  NVIDIA Quadro NVS display adapter.

Yesterday, something changed in my system that caused my primary display device to now show up as Display #2 in the Display properties dialog.  I don't know if it was because I docked and undocked the system, added then removed a second monitor, or I modified the display presentation mode with Lenovo's display settings.

How do you assign the display number in the Display Properties dialog?

This does not work for Windows 7 dual displays.  I'm pulling my hair out because I've spent hours trying to correct this.  I use UltraMon and I can not get UltraMon and Windows to agree on which monitor is number 1 and which is number 2.  I really wouldn;t care except that when I RDP into this machine (even with monitor 2 disabled) RDP connects to the black/blank screen (#2 for UltraMon but #1 for Windows 7).  Urgh.
