Radeon settings enable clone disabled second monitor

I was looking at display settings on AMD Radeon settings, when I accidentally clicked on Enable Clone. Whatever, just disable it, right? No, it seems to have completely messed up my second monitor. It still works, as if I re-enable cloning, it still works, but whenever I disable it, it goes back off. Windows recognizes it... Sort of? Everything's greyed out, and I can't really do much, but Radeon settings doesn't seem to recognize it at all. Nothing seems to work, so it's up to you, random strangers on the internet.bandicam 2017-05-18 17-21-56-201.png

I had this problem too. I solved it by manually changing my displays back to extend these displays. Hopefully this helps.

That didn't work at all for me, I had to reset Radeon software to factory default.

I only have 1 monitor, it messed up.

Can't do anything until I performed a system restore.

Re: Radeon settings enable clone disabled second monitor

I know this is a bit of a necropost, but I found the solution:
Go into Windows Display settings, select the disabled monitor and scroll to the bottom.
Under Multiple Displays, change the drop-down from "Disable this display" to "Extend desktop to this display".

Use these steps if you are using windows 10 and you are using the latest version of AMD Radeon Settings

Step 1: Turn off computer

Step 2: Boot it up again

Step 3: Enter in password if you have one

Step 4: Press the windows key on your keyboard

Step 5: Type in amd

Step 6: Press enter on your keyboard

Step 7: Press Tab on your keyboard 15 times

Step 8: Press enter on your keyboard

Step 9: Press Tab on your keyboard 7 times

Step 10: Press enter on your keyboard

Step 11: Press enter on your keyboard 

You should be good to go from here hopefully

Hope this worked for you

Re: Radeon settings enable clone disabled second monitor

I ran into the same issue. I have one DP to a VGA and one hdmi to a hdmi. it always puts the vga to primary and clone.

If I use DV to DV monitor and keep hdmi, it works fine.
