In Device Manager, open the View Menu and enable "Show hidden devices." Then uninstall every monitor and reboot.
"Show hidden devices" still didnt show. Only shows laptop monitor.

What is the model of the laptop and monitor? What does Windows call the monitor in the display settings? Are the correct resolutions available for the monitor? Are you using VGA, DVI, HDMI, or DisplayPort?

Ok, I think I fixed it. basically, I copied HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\DISPLAY\CGC0000 reg file from my 2nd windows (since I'm dual booting) and applied it to main windows (the one that didn't detect) And CRU is detecting the 2nd monitor now. Thx for the help ToastyX!!

Is this an external monitor or a laptop screen? CRU can only affect external monitors with older Intel GPUs, and you have to use the alternative .exe export method.

RE: Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)
Hey ToastyX thanks so much for the upload!
One minor inconvenience though, can you offer help or insight please?
When monitor goes to sleep, and i turn it back on it is either a lower resolution (goes to 1080p from 4k - did that once) or it's dimmer (greyish overtones or something, isn't working native or something, i went to adapter, windows and changed to 60 hz, from the 59 it was on, and that resulted in proper colors). However every time display sleeps and wakes up, colors / display is messed like that.

If you don't uninstall the driver before upgrading, then it will keep the current settings. If you do a clean install or use DDU, then you will have to import the changes again.

The dimming is an AMD driver bug. You'll have to restart the driver after the monitor turns on. This might be faster: https://www.monitortests.com/reload.zip

RE: Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)
Hello. I am having trouble with removing a resolution.

My monitor is 3440x1440 144hz native(BenQ MOBIUZ EX3415R). It has a 3840x2160 mode inbuilt that I want to remove.

The issue is that it is only getting removed if I remove the unreadable 'Default Extension Block', but along with it, my native 144hz is also removed.

I've tried manually adding 3440x1440 144hz but the utility doesn't allow it(pixel clock limitations?).

Add it in a DisplayID 1.3 extension block.

Hey ToastyX, thank you for your work on this tool. I am having trouble enabling 165Hz support in Windows 11 with my W5000 Firepro through DisplayPort. I have just the amd driver installed with AMD/ATI Pixel Clock Patcher patched. I found the settings for 165Hz in the Extension Block CTA-861, and I manually applied them to the Detailed Resolution at the top of the program. I also enabled 8bit color depth.

I hit restart64 to reload the driver, go to change the refresh rate settings, but Windows is only showing me 120 Hz. Any help here?
