How do I remove Unknown Monitor under Display Properties ?

Fedayeen used Ask the Experts™
Hi Xperts,

I just installed Nvidia's latest driver and in doing so, an "Unknown Monitor" has appeared under Display Properties/Settings/Display.

However, under Device Manager/Display Adapters, I can only see Nvidia GeForce 2 MX/MX 400. And under Device Manager/Monitors, there's only Phlips 107T. I don't see any Unknown Monitor/Device anywhere ?

Can anyone offer any suggestions on how to remove this Unknown thingy ? I need my Day of Defeat :(

Thanx, Fed

Boot to Safe Mode. Check for and delete any unused monitors in the Device Manager.

You can also check other items (video adapters etc...) for unused or ghost listings.

boot to safe mode (press F8 during boot)
go to device manager, and remove both (all) monitors
reboot and windows should only install the philips
