Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation having challenges with Display 2 connected via HDMI to NVidia QTX-750-Ti GPU-card RRS feed

  • Question

  • Problems with Windows 8.1 Enterprise Evaluation (OS):
     1) OS keeps reminding to use 1980x1080 resolution for Samsung 24" connected via HDMI to NVidia QTX 750 Ti GPU-card !
     2) OS classifies SyncMaster 2494HM/2494HS/2494HSI(Digital) monitor as Generic PnP Monitor

     3) Check Signal Cable HDMI message pops up when computer is not being used

         however, signal cable is ok as well as the monitor!

    4) "Use 1980x1080 resolution with HDMI" pops up randomly and there is no way to close it!  

        however, one can work using the monitor and see the content except the area occupied

        with this annoying message!

    Notes:

     a) OS did not display this warning when the same display was connected via DVI-D to

         NVidia QTX 750 Ti GPU-card!

    b) if I connect a new touch screen via HDMI to NVidia QTX 750 Ti and reconnect

        normal digital display via DVI-D, will I get the same annoying warning when using the new

        touch screen, if I'm not using it for video but just for touch input and normal 2D content ?

    Question:
     1) how to fix this ?
     2) how to test Display 2 HDMI connection ?
     3) how to get OS to detect that also the display 2 is SyncMaster 2494HM/2494HS/2494HSI(Digital) monitor ?
