need help going dualscreen

hey guys

I've been looking around a lot but haven't found a solution to my problem yet.

I have my laptop (NVidia GeForce 8400M G) hooked up to an external monitor (LG Electronics W1952) with a keyboard and mouse. So it basically is a desktop.

Since my external monitor is huge (21") compared to my laptop screen (14"), I wanted to use my external display as the primary instead of secondary.

When I try to go into dualview mode in NVidia Control Panel, it makes my laptop screen as the primary and LG screen as secondary even though I set it the other way around.

I have to fiddle around with it (switch to single view then back) to make it change back to the way it was.

So I installed the Forceware 177.98 driver from www.laptopvideo2go.com because apparently someone with the same problem as me solved it with the special drivers.

But I still can't get it. :)

If someone can please help me out here that would be great.

In the Windows Display Properties window under the Settings tab there should be an option to change the primary monitor in a dual-screen configuration.
