Oookay. Hold the phone. There was zero indication that this is even 
clickable, lol. And yes, I only have one monitor. Never had more than one.

However, even after clicking it and having the controls pop into 
existence, they're broken :-D  The resolution slider cannot be moved 
freely. It gets stuck and the refresh rate drop-list changes on its own. 
For example, if I move it to the left, the slider locks into 1024x768 
and cannot be moved anywhere else, while the refresh rate drop-list goes 
through various values instead when I attempt to move the resolution 

Thanks, Obama. Fortunately there's NVidia that provides a functioning tool.
