Hello everyone here at tom's,
I have come to you guys asking for help with two problems I'm having with my monitor:
1.) The Window extends passed the screen when i drag it to the far left / right side (first picture).

2.) My monitor is not recognized as the first monitor and there is this other 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor' that is my second monitor? (second picture).

-I have tried looking at the Nvidia control panel, windows resolution options, and my monitor settings to modify any settings that may have been messed with but everything looks fine and for some reason this has happened.

-I only have one monitor.
-My display is the HP 2009m.
-My display is connected to my GTX 780 through a vga adapter that came with the video card.
-I am the only person who uses my computer.
-I recently installed a GTX 780 (although after noticing this I have reinstalled the newest driver).
-I know my monitor is old, it was working fine before.
-Yes I know I should be playing on a better monitor and I will be but I'm waiting to find a good price on a 1440p monitor.

Please Help,
-Yiya

Also I forgot to mention that this happened after I installed the GTX 780.

Disable onboard video in bios . In NVidia control panel make sure dual monitors is NOT enabled. Make sure onboard video drivers are uninstalled (possibly uninstall new GPU drivers as well - with the online utility for fully removing NVidia drivers from you system, and then re-install with the 'Clean Install' option)

Doing the clean install of the NVIDIA Drivers got rid of the non-PnP monitor that was showing up. Now the only problem is figuring out how to stop application windows from going off the screen.

And did you go into nvidia control center and turn off dual monitors? Also check the windows display settings to make sure that dual monitors are not enabled there.

Yes I checked the Nvidia CP > Multiple Displays and there was no option for multiple displays neither was there another screen. Windows displays settings did not show anything either.

Hmmm, make sure that your monitor supports the resolution settings is all I can think of. As in maybe the drivers are outputting 1920x1080 but your monitor only supports lower than that, although I think if that was the case it just wouldn't display at all...

First off, thanks so much for perservering with me throughout this thread I'm very grateful for your help.

Secondly, it is an old monitor: HP 2009m that only supports up to 1600x900. Since the GTX 780 is such a new and beastly card it may be the reason why I'm experiencing this. If that's any help.

You are welcome for the help however I'm no expert so take this all with a grain of salt and at least your question is more visible (more recent/ at the top of the forum list ;)  )

It doesn't really matter how old your monitor is as long as it works well enough for you. Check and reset (like just click on the appropriate one again) the resolution setting in Windows display and in NVidia control panel (again since you have re-installed the drivers).
Also which apps are going off screen (and are they showing up completely off screen or are they just extending past the borders)?

I re-clicked the resolutions and yeah it's any program that has a window. Ex. Windows Explorer, Browser, etc...

If the programs you mentioned are just trying to display past the borders, try re-sizing the window (perhaps there is some kind of cache involved that is still telling them you have dual monitor)
If that doesn't work, possibly a fresh OS (and drivers) install will fix this issue.

I'm really busy this week so I don't think I have time for a full windows clean install. I also think this was caused from whatever made the Pnp Monitor show up before. Although the part about the application windows going off the screen still isn't fixed I guess I'll just live with this. Thanks for your help.
