Default Re: GEforce FX5200 always identifying screens as the same

I can't give you a solution, but a couple of comments. I'm currently using the GeForce 6200, but I also have an FX5500, and I have found no difference between them as far as this kind of thing goes. Just for reference, in display properties, mine shows the monitor as one option, which I have set as the primary. The second is to my TV as secondary monitor. The only thing that comes to mind, besides what you mentioned, is on the settings tab of display properties, do you have the "extend my desktop to this monitor" option checked, when viewing the settings for the secondary monitor?
