    DisplayPort monitors have the wrong enumeration numbers

    I have a problem with my monitors. I have 2 DVI monitors and 2 DisplayPort monitors. For some reason, Control Panel -> Screen Resolution shows it as 2, 3, 1, 4, but when I click on Identify, they show up as 1, 3, 2, 4. The DisplayPort monitors have the wrong enumeration numbers compared to the screen resolution page. This also causes issues on my Virtual Box as Virtual Screen 1 shows up as Host Screen 1 and Virtual Screen 2 shows up as Host Screen 3, which are related to 2 and 3 respectively as per the Screen Resolution page.

    What's going on here and how do I fix this mess?

Hi all, In a few weeks (I can't wait! :D) I will replace my laptop with the Surface Pro. Right now, though, I have my laptop connected to two monitors: One via VGA and other via DVI. I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64, so this all works great. So the big question is whether it is possible to...
