My Nvidia driver at Fedora (now 27) produces many problems with non-existent VGA display. I have a display attached to DVI. Years ago I plugged in for a short time a second VGA monitor, unplugged it forever, but Nvidia card/driver still remembers it. This make many problems when Linux try to use 2-display configuration with 1 display. Dmesg writes: "WARNING: GPU:0: Unable to read EDID for display device VGA-0". How to make it forget this VGA forever?

Yes it's disabled in nvidia-settings, problem is that card remembers it anyway.

This makes Gnome3 in Fedora 27 unstartable, I see only cursor on black screen. KDE, MATE and Cinnamon do work.
