2 and 3 are combined? Is that monitor connected with a dual-link DVI cable? I've never seen that but Windows 7 display manager claims it's a new feature. Maybe that's some if the DVI display issues folks have been having...

That would explain it. The HD2400 I have is dual link DVI capable as well. Your monitor must also be -- what model is that? I know my monitor is not and even if it were I only have the single link cable with the center pins missing. Yours must have all the pins for digital 1, digital 2 and maybe even analog: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...DVI_pinout.svg

The 226bw does not require dual link so I doubt it would use it. I can't find definitive data either way. The HD2600 DOES output full dual link DVI so a single link cable can drive a single monitor up to WUXGA 1920 1200 @ 60 Hz. A dual link cable can drive a single monitor up to WQXGA (2560 1600) @ 60 Hz and a special dual-to-single Y-cable to drive two separate monitors up to WUXGA 1920 1200 @ 60 Hz each. To my knowledge only ATI does this. Seems that since the driver knows it's only using one monitor and can drive two it's showing the other as a "ghost". I've seen this before and have gotten rid of it this way:

Have you tried switching off the duplicate desktop on 2,3 option so it shows only on 2 OR 3? You should then get the option like I have to delete the unused monitor.
