I have a Dell Latitude E6510 with an advanced E-Port docking station. I connect on this docking station two 19'' monitors with DVI cables. The laptop is configured, that its possible to close the lid. Installed is Windows XP SP2, we need this version for our system.

Problem:
If I reboot the laptop and log in with the administrator, it works fine. If I reboot and log in with a domain user, the display config swap after windows login to one monitor.

what can I try/do to save the config for the domain user?

I configured the settings for both users separatly. Local administrator and domain user.

I'm logged in with domain user, configure two monitors and then I reboot the laptop. After reboot, the settings are on one monitor.

Below thread is for Windows 7 but I think it will help you in fixing XP also,

Windows 7 user profile lost when you log off or reboot

If above thread doesn't work then try this,

1. Restart your PC to release the locks on your profile.
2. Log on with another administrative account
3. Delete C:\Documents and Settings\%username% (Delete domain user account through which you are login. NOTE: you will lose all your domain user data and if you want the data of that domain user copy the domain user folder before deleting)
4. Delete C:\Documents and Settings\TEMP
5. Restart once again and then you're done!

Login with your domain account and configure your display setting.

I found it!

The laptop has differend settings if the lid is open or close. With open lid, you can chose between monitor one, two or laptopmonitor, with close lid olny between monitor one or two.

As I set the monitorsettings with open and close lid to the same, it is has the same settings after reboot.

Thanks anyway.
