  1. 2nd monitor crashing PC


    Recently, for no reason, started getting freezes and crashes. Freezing all day out of nowhere..."no reason" at all. Nothing different. everything updated. finally i unplugged the 2nd monitor and no crashes... 1060 GTX 3gb. I started having problems 3 or 4 weeks ago when I pulled a HDMI cord to use it elsewhere. Plugged the 2nd monitor's HDMI back in the next day and just tons of crashes and freezes. After 15 reboots everything stabilized, 'til yesterday. Freezes after reboots seemingly out of nowhere. Sometimes 2 seconds into windows, sometimes 3 or 4 minutes. Pulled the 2nd HDMI and it's been up for an hour or so. One monitor is DVI and the other is HDMI.

    If possible, try a different connector on the GTX 1060. Leave the DVI as it is, try some other connector for the 2nd monitor.
    Without the exact make/model of your GTX 1060, I don't know what connectors it has, so I can only say: "try a different one".

    Also, if possible, try a different HDMI cable.

    2nd monitor crashing PC

    Color Display on 2nd monitor

    I am using Windows 10 on a Dell laptop with a 2nd monitor which has been working fine. For some unknown reason I have suddenly lost the full color range on the 2nd monitor. I don't know if I have changed some setting by accident or what. I have tried
    resetting the defaults but that didn't change anything on the 2nd monitor. The primary screen on the laptop continues to work fine. Any suggestions what needs to be done to restore the full color range on monitor #2?
