Question

I have 2 default displays showing on one screen.

I have 2 displays showing on one monitor. They are stacked one on top of the other.
I only want to see one.
My device manager shows 2 default displays and when I remove either one it comes back after scanning for hardware changes.
This computer only has one screen and no monitor vga or hdmi outputs.

Answer
This is proper for some setups.

I don't see machine or OS details so this is correct behavior for many PCs. If you are have an issue with the mouse disappearing on display 2, you didn't say but in those cases I turn off "extend my desktop." I can't be any clearer since the OS was omitted.

That looks like an entirely different issue that "Extend"

That looks more like the wrong video driver, monitor.inf file and such. That needs sorting by the PC's maker or IT staffer. This thread does not hold the details needed and even if I had the full make/model of the parts my answer is summed up as:

"Install the drivers for motherboard, video card and the monitor.inf for the monitor."

But here's where it goes Ice Station Zebra. I find folk unable to find the drivers or setup XP anymore. And since I'm not there I can't do this for them.
