how to keep the clone mode when replacing the monitors

I am using one or two Monitors on a Basic Celeron CPU System running Win7.

If there are two Monitors they should run in clone mode.

The Problem is that the Monitors at this system change very often.

But when new monitors are connected the clone mode is gone everytime and the graphics mode is reset to extended mode again.

Is there a way to have the clone mode as the Default mode when two Monitors are connected ?

By the way, running XP the clone mode survived the exchange of the Monitors.

Is there some registry Setting for this Default ?

I already tried displayswitch /clone.

But this isn't an appropriate solution for me, as it reacts strange when just one Monitor is connected. It sets the Resolution fix to HD.

thanks Peter
