    It might be helpful if you post xorg.conf:

    cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Default Re: Changing monitors' priority

    I'm not an NVidia user, so can only offer general advice here. Your first monitor is an 'LG' and your second monitor is a 'BenQ'. Is that correct? You don't mention how they are conected (DVI, VGA etc). The order is usually dependent on the port they are plugged into. Anyway, I guess you could try dropping into runlevel 3 (console mode) and run sax2 with the monitor you wish to use as primary monitor only:

    su (to become root user,enter root password when prompted)
    init 3

    From console, do

    cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.working (make a backup)
    sax2 -r

    Then do

    init 5

    when finished.

    (Refer to Step 3 concerning nvidia utility. Might be all you need to do)

    thanx for help!!
    the problem was in sax2 VS nvidia-settings
    reset xorg with sax2 and setup by nvidia-settings
    it looks great!! =)
