How do I remove monitor info from Win 7?

After setting up dual displays with my tv connected through a VGA port and my monitor connected through DVI, Windows 7 now recognizes that I have a dual monitor setup even when the tv is off and the VGA cable has been disconnected.

What can I do to remove *all* the monitor information from Windows 7? I have updated drivers and rolled back drivers and this hasn't helped.

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

  1. Could try going into Device Manager (From Control Panel) and then go to the Monitor section right click on the display you do not want and select Uninstall.

    right click on the desktop and go to screen resolution-> click on the display that was the 2nd(may need to use identify to make sure you dont disable your primary)-> where it says multiple displays click the down arrow and choose disconnect this display. Then the system will no longer try to use the 2nd display until you go back and enable it.

    Tried that, but it didn't work. It removed the model number of my tv from the Screen Resolution window, but Windows retains the multiple display setup.
