    Random BSOD when switching resolution

    It seems that I have a few problems. First, I have a "phantom monitor" problem. My GTX 970 detects an additional monitor that stays at 640 x 480, even though I have one DisplayPort cable running from the card. No other cables are connected. I can't seem to get rid of the phantom monitor!

    The problem started a week after I came back from vacation. I fired-up my desktop, and it refused to display output to my monitor. I thought I fixed it by displaying "Only on 2", but every once in a while, the system reboots without warning when changing display settings, or trying to run a game.

    Perhaps I should do a clean install? I've been running the same Windows systems since 2013. Lol.

    I can recreate the problem by right clicking on my desktop, and going to display properties. My system goes out and reboots right after the display properties window pops-up.

    Please remove these programs before troubleshooting.

    If you installed any drivers with either of these programs, use a system restore point or system backup. If neither are available and you don't want to go for a clean install,
    - if you don't know what drivers were installed, check if these programs have logs of driver installations, if requested I can spit the logs for you to find out
    - if you do know, go into device manager and revert the drivers.
