Hello, 

 

I have following specs:

 

CPU: Intel i5 6500
MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte z-17- HD3 (F22f - latest available BIOS)
GPU 1: Sapphire Nitro+ RX480
GPU 2: integrated Intel 530 (disabled in BIOS)
RAM: Crucial 8 GB DDR4 2400
PSU: CoolerMaster MASTERWATT LITE 600W
PSU: SILVERSTONE 750W (Model number SST-ST75F-GS)

MONITOR 1: SAMSUNG S24F350
MONITOR 2: PHILIPS TV

 

Windows 10 (1909 and 2004) keep installing generic non-pnp monitor while in desktop. It happens randomly and without warning. I tried multiple drivers and tried different ports on my gpu but it keeps happening. Windows keeps adding 'ghost' generic non-pnp monitor. The issue started occurring somewhere around march and it keeps happening. When I remove ghost monitor sometimes it reappears again followed by flicker on both my monitor and my tv. Except for this issue, gpu works normally. I can game and watch movies. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
