Why can I see an unknown monitor "VGA-1-2" in my display setting?

Postby TrunderBird » Tue Nov 07, 2017 12:05 pm

My notebook has two graphic card(Geforce 630M and Intel embeded). And I have installed Mint Linux 18.2 cinnamon edition into my mobile hard disk as a live-linux system. When I have started up the os,all the thing are right except that the screen refresh is abnormal.,when I moved the mouse-cursor quickly,I could see lots of duplicated mouse pointers. Then I launched the dIsplay setting,To my surprise I had seen two monitor:one was my notebook's LCD screen, and another displayed as "Unknow monitor (VGA-1-2)",when I closed this monitor in display setting (switch off the button in the display setting)', the system worked perfectly.My question is:
What is this "Unknown monitor"?And how can I delete it permanantly?
