Remove phantom external monitor from iBook
Authored by: zygote on May 02, '03 01:37:17PM

I had this problem in OS 9 on an iBook 800, but not when
booting the same machine into 10.2.5.

Tried all the fixes the poster noted, but nothing worked until I
pulled the System Folder and reinstalled. However the issue
returned. Still fighting it. Any thoughts?

Remove phantom external monitor from iBook
Authored by: milhouse on May 04, '03 11:17:54PM

I had this problem under OS9 only and untill today. I loaded the Mac OS software restore CD #1 and enabled invisible folders under OS X with tinkertool. I launched the .dmg of OS9 from the (normally) hidden .images folder on teh CD.

I navigated to the system preferences and copied all of the ATI and OpenGl preferences from the CD to the classic system preferences folder.

Next I booted to OS9 and the monitor was back to normal, with a full screen as a single monitor. :)
