I have a HD5570 with 2 monitors. Never had a problem. Yesterday I installed Windows 8 and in Windows settings the monitor connected to the DVI connector is identified as 1, anmd the other monitor as 2. However, in Catalyst Control Center monitor 1 is identified as 2 and 2 as 1. I tried disconnecting and restarting monitors, but the "problem" remains. I agree it is not a big problem (if at all) but I hate these kind of little discrepancies.

Does anyone know how to solve this?

I hear ya!!! The only thing stable in my 3 screens is the displayport monitor is always #1 the DVI and HDMI differ between Win8 and VECC.

A couple years (or more) back the mod of this forum at the time posted about something similar. Don't quote me as my memory is failing but I think it involved editing an .xml file to rearrange the monitor numbering. I tried a search to find the post but no luck. Said moderator still hangs around so if he sees this he'll either say I'm a nut and/or provide/deny a workable solution.

Hate is such a strong word!! You'll be grey prematurely worrying about this trivial stuff.
