I'm using duel monitors, and recently switched which card is my primary monitor. Previously while my primary monitor was Monitor ID 1, I couldn't start an OpenGL game if both monitors was on. Interestingly, I could start a game with both monitors on if another OpenGL game was already started. To avoid this issue while starting games, I would start a dummy OpenGL game up and throw it to my secondary monitor and ignore it.
Due to over heating issues, I had to swap my game monitor to the naturally cooler card. It is now the primary monitor with an ID of 2. Now games state that I have a bad driver and are unable to start if I have both monitors turned on, even while using the jumping stone dummy game.
I can still get games to start if I go to a single monitor, and they remain running when I turn the secondary monitor back on. In all cases, games fail to render when on the secondary monitor (this doesn't bother me, but I feel is relevant).
As this behavior is on more then one game, and their ability to start is tied to the second monitor being on, I believe this is a difficulty outside of the games. If there is a better place for this, please let me know.
Bad video card drivers!
Minecraft was unable to start because it failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode.
This can usually be fixed by updating the video card drivers.
