I don't have your problem, but another one.

I want my second monitor to be above the internal monitor by default.

I solved that by adding

	Option "TwinViewOrientation" "Above"

to the Device section of the xorg.conf file.

Maybe you can google "xorg.conf twinview" and find the option to
insert into xorg.conf that makes your external monitor the primary?

BTW, for me there's a difference if I connect my second monitor via
displayport or VGA: The monitor isn't recognized automatically if I
use the VGA cable.
