Got a new Samsung 940BF LCD monitor for Christmas to replace a Samsung 700NF CRT monitor. Problem is that while the monitor shows correctly installed in Device Manager, the the old Samsung CRT still shows in the nVidia Control Panel. The new monitor can't be seen or selected. Any suggestion on how to fix this? Driver is 93.81. It has aready been removed with Driver Cleaner Pro and reinstalled. Card is a BFG 7800 GS.

uninstall the old monitor drivers, and install the new ones from the samsung website.

I would uninstall the nvidia driver ,then reboot and reinstall the driver and before you reboot install the new driver for your monitor,and it should show your new monitor now.

No way to do that other than blow the display away (which I did; no difference)

I un-installed the monitor and card drivers, reinstalled the monitor drivers throught the "update drivers" tab in device manager, then reinstalled forceware and that worked for me.
