Because some of my son's games wouldn't play on XP, I reformatted his pc and reinstalled Windows 98. I ran into some problems installing the drivers for the GeForce card but finally got it installed.

The problem is that now in the Display icon of the Control Panel it show 2 monitors connected to the system???? If I remove the "Unknown" monitor from the system, it only gets reinstalled the next time I start up the pc.

What could be the problem?

Thanks

Did you try going to your display tools and check and see if it is set for dual monitors, That could be doing it if that card supports it.

If that doesn't work try going to control panel then system, then device manager, remove the unknown one there by deleting it. Then hit refresh.

Hope this helps ya

I don't know what the Display tools are. On the Settings Tab of the Display Properties there are 2 monitors to choose from.

As I said, I tried Remove from the System Device manager but when I reboot, the system automatically detects "New Hardware" and reinstalls the Unknown Monitor. And I've even disabled the "Detect Plug and Pray Monitors" from the Display Settings!!!

Howdy there RPhox...

What I would suggest is to remove both monitors from Device Manager, then reboot...
