Good tips.

I just checked my device manager as per above and saw that my Dell 2007FP monitor is listed 8 times (7 gray) and Generic Plug and Play Monitor is listed 3 times (all gray).

What do you make of that?

Not uncommon. I don't know if it is because of different resolutions or what. It is not harmful, but you certainly uninstall the grayed out ones.

Thanks for the info.
