When I open Civil 3D 2014, my prospector will be off, If I open it, my screen splits as if it were two vertical viewports. Prospector appears in only the top one, which does not respond.
I've been opening old drawings that don't seem to have this problem, and then creating new drawings. Is it possible that this has something to do with a dual monitor setup?
I have google high and low to find a solution to this problem but have had no luck.

I'm curious if you also had your system variable Startup=2 and if you did have it at 2 did changing it to either 0 or 1 fix your problem?
Well... It does "look" like vertical viewports. Have you tried the VPORTS command and selecting Single? Is it possibly due to a dual monitor setup. Possibly, but since it's the drawing window that's split and not the program window. I don't think it's likely.
Like Allen said, it looks correct. Check to see if it's set that way in your template file.
I've tried playing with viewports, the upper portion seems to me to be a dead viewport, if I click on it, my mouse does not change to a crosshair, and the "X" cannpot be clicked to close it. If I change the view port to anything, it divides the bottom portion, like so
FWIW, I saw this mentioned once a number of months ago. I have been looking for the conversation and have been unsuccessful locating it. I cannot recall what, if any, the fix was. I will keep looking...
Was this drawing created by wblocking from a drawing with 2 viewports set? I've seen inactive viewports created that way. Two things you might try. One is an Audit. The other is inserting the problem drawing into a fresh drawing created from your template.
Is your Hardware Acceleration turned on? Not sure if this will help or not. Worth a try.
I would see if I could drag the toolspace out of the docked position.
Todd asked If hardware accel is on. If it was on I would try toggling it off and on again.
