    2nd monitor won't wake - settings default to that screen


    Looking for help figuring out how to wake up my second monitor. After upgrading to a new Dell OptiPlex 3060 and Windows 10, I cannot seem to get my second monitor up and running, but all of my open windows go there when I connect it. To complicate matters, when I open display settings on my primary screen, it always opens the window on the second screen, which is completely black.

    Are there any mechanisms to force the settings screen to open on "display 1?"

    Could it be a driver issue? If so, what should I do? (The monitor is an HP cwa)

    :)

    2nd monitor 'missing' on wake after sleep

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    I understand when the computer wakes up from sleep second monitor is now waking up. We will help you to resolve the issue.

    This issue might be to corrupted power settings.

    To diagnose and fix this issue, try the following methods.

    Method 1: Power troubleshooter.

    I would suggest you to run the Power troubleshooter and check if it helps.

    • Press the ‘Windows + W’ key on the keyboard.
    • Type troubleshooter in the search box and then press Enter.
    • Select Troubleshooting. Click on
      view all
      and select Power.
    • Click next and follow the on-screen instructions.
    If the issue still persist follow the below method.

    Method 2: Restore Power Option Settings.

    I would suggest you to restore default settings of power plan and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + w, and select the option
      Control Panel
      .
    • Click on the Power Options icon.
    • Click on Change advanced power settings.

    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?
