Disabling dual display

  1. Trying to uninstall the second monitor and video adapter, through Device manager. Have Ati 9600Pro, removed all Ati software except for drivers, and have installed the latest Catalyst drivers. Any ideas

    I have the 9700 Pro, but I haven't used dual display (yet -- though I am here in a few weeks). I *think* one way you can do it is try going into Device Manager and disable the second display adapter. If you remove one or the other I believe it removes both seeing as how it installs adapters for two monitors even when you dont have two.

    Doing a bit of guessing here, but give it a try and let me know if it works.

    Thanks for the thought, have tried uninstalling both, but once I reboot W2K, both are once again recognised. Emailed ATI support, but haven't heard anything so far

    all the 9xxx series cards show primary and secondary display in device manager and as far as I know you cant uninstall the secondary one.
