Default reset nvidia-settings

I made a stupid mistake configuring twinview.

I have a laptop with analog vga output and i hooked up my tv and had it working side by side in twinview by enabling those features in nvidia-settings

the problem is that after reboot the tv was made primary screen and now i can't use the laptop without hooking it up to the tv, because somehow display 0.0 is now the tv, even if it is not connected. Now i can not get it back.

is there some way i can reset those settings outside of X ?

i noticed that ~/.nvidia-settings-rc has a really old change time, are settings stored somewhere else ?

(xorg.conf was not changed)

I'm not sure how you would have configured that sort of setup without changing xorg.conf... The easiest thing to try would be to rename xorg.conf and generate a new one by running nvidia-xconfig.

It would be useful to see your actual xorg.conf file, or better yet, an nvidia-bug-report.log.

hmm, figuring out how i did it, i managed to reverse ...

apparently i "disabled" DFP-0 in "Display configuration after fiddling around with TwinView. Please remind me not to do that again
