  1. Multiple Display - phantom display after PC restored from laptop Image


    Hello,
    I recently installed an image of my laptop running windows 10 home into a SSD and installed it in my PC with Dual monitors.
    The Dual monitors are connected to my PC via Targus DisplayLink hub.

    In my Settings for Display I am able to see the dual monitors as well as a 3rd smaller monitor which actually does not exist. I have clicked Detect but it still does not get rid of the unknown monitors.

    Since I am not able to get rid of the 3rd phantom display some times I am facing issues with open browsers getting opened in my non-existent display.

    Then as a work around I disabled the driver of the non-existent display.

    Although occasionally I am still getting unusual behavior from my PC related to display.

    Please suggest a permanent fix to get rid of this Phantom display. Pls see the attachment.

    :)

    Laptop display question

    Confusing statement! You want to change the display on your laptop that died?

    Is that correct?

    How do you know its the display that's bad?

    Just google "how to change display on a acer 5745"

    Should get you to step by step instructions. But first make sure its the display that's bad

    You may want to answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:

    1. May I know the make and model of the PC?

    Steps 1:

    1. Go to settings
    2. Click on “System"
    3. Then click on Display
    4. Move your mouse to the monitor that needs to be set as primary and check the box
      "Make this my main display"
    5. Under "Multiple displays" select "Duplicate these displays"
    6. Then select “Keep this display settings
    Once you make these changes, you may restart the computer and check.
