It's possible to disable multi monitor detection?

Question asked by dstalker on Aug 13, 2018

Well, i'm having a ghost/non-existent monitor being continuously connected and disconnected from the graphics card displayport connector, causing system hangs/freezings and driver crashes.

A similar behavior to some of these reports:

Sapphire R9 290x - Nonexistent 3rd monitor detected

detected non-exist second monitor

RX580 non existing second monitor

Eyefinity reconnects and disconnects


And would like to know if someone know a way to disable the multi monitor detection (the same way it is when the microsoft generic video driver is installed) or the displayport itself to try to fix this problem.
