    2 monitor setup. But 1 monitor won't fully go to stby mode.


    Hey gang,

    I got a new monitor and using my old one as a second monitor. The problem is that when Windows 10 activated stby mode. My new monitor won't fully go to sleep. The screen blacks out. But is still on. The Panel backlights a re still on and the power indicator is still lit up and not showing the yellow light in stby. I have to MSI MAG27QRF QD. .

    :)

  2. (4K DP, 1440p DP, 1200p DVI-D) Triple monitor setup; 2 monitors have the same background when background is set to slideshow shuffle

    My setup:

    • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770
    • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition, fully updated drivers
    • OS: Windows 10 Pro v1803, fully patched

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Connect the monitors as in the title
    2. Set wallpaper background to shuffle in Windows Settings

    What happens:

    2 of the monitors (always adjacent to each other) have the same background.

    What should happen:

    All 3 monitors should have different backgrounds.

    Anyone ever seen this before? Any ideas?

  3. Setting monitor 2 as monitor 1

    Hello,

    I've recently got a two monitor setup on my Windows 10. I want to set my main monitor (144hz) as monitor 1. Currently it is displayed as monitor 2. Is there a way to switch these monitors? I've set my 144hz monitor as my main display in the display settings.

    2 monitor setup. But 1 monitor won't fully go to stby mode.

    Change monitor 2 to monitor 1 and make it stay.

    I did as you suggested, but the problem was not resolved. Windows detects the monitors just fine, but I need to switch monitor 2 to be numbered monitor 1. The main diplay has not effect, as once monitor 1 is turned on monitor two looses display.
