Windows 7: Monitors.

29 Dec 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Hey guys, I have an issue. Previously on my custom built desktop I had three monitors attached, recently I have lent a friend one of my monitors for the purpose of having more "real estate" for editing.

Anyways, you guys aren't concerned with that part.

The issue is whenever I open Cinema 4D it tells me that I have "a monitor that is not compatible," it lists my two monitors then another one that says "blank." I believe the reason may be this. (look at the screenshot, you'll see a blank monitor) How do I remove the monitor from here?

If you need my graphics card I have a EVGA GeForce GTX Titan.

One monitor I have connected is a 24' and the other a 32' the one that was previous connected was also a 32' 1920x1080.

Have you tried the simple things first like clicking the detect button as well as restarting?

Jacob try right clicking on the blank monitor and see what is under Properties.
See my pic and then see what comes up when you do this.

PS Sorry mate sent the wrong pic look at the one that uninstalls it.
