    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)

    :)

    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?
