video card switches displays in Multi Display Mode


I've got a strange issue that I;m very confused about.  

I set up up system for someone that came with a NVidea GeForce G210, which has both a standard analog port and  digital port.   Attached to each port are identical side by side LCD displays, which have both analog and digital inputs.  

The machine is a HP Elite 7000 MT with Windows 7 Business.

The problem is that in multi display mode, the monitors are switched.  That means that in order to bring the cursor to the left most display from the right display, one must drag the cursor to the right, and it then enters the left most monitor from its far left side. This happens regardless of which monitor is designated as the main display.  This also happened after I switched which monitor is using the analog and digital input.  In the video configuration screen, the order of the displays are also listed backward, with the first monitor designated as #2 and the second display as #1.

Just for yuks, I took a screen shot of the monitors, and they appeared in the order in which they were supposed to.  That is, in the order that would have allowed the cursor to move between the displays from the center, as I would have expect it.  So Apparently, windows sees them in the right order, and the Video card has them switched.

Any advice on getting this card to order these displays correctly  and end  this madness would be appreciated.

There is a way to do this, I had the same problem one time.
Right click on desktop and and click on screen resolutions.
You should see the 2 screens in a graphic display.
If you click your mouse on one or the other you can drag them around to ( like drag and drop)  to position them in the order you want.
All done.
You can then choose which monitor you want to be your main one. etc
