    3rd monitor only works when logged in to admin


    Hello community!

    I need some serious help. I have been dealing with this for over a month. I currently have an all-in-one computer with a 2nd monitor which works just fine. I hooked up a third monitor using HDMI to usb converter and it only works when logged in as an admin rather than another user.

    The monitor works exactly how I want it to but ONLY when logged in as admin. I need to change a setting or copy all display settings or somthing else.

    Please help, I am about to light my office on fire.

    :)

    3rd Monitor only works when logged in as and Admin. Will not work when logged into another user. Please help

    Hello everyone.

    This has been an ordeal to say the least. I have not been able to get my 3rd monitor to work how I need it to.

    The problem....

    The only way I can get all three monitors to work is to log into the admin user on the computer. This is a work computer so I am assuming the admin user has different settings compared to the other users.

    I have seen all three monitors on so I know the monitor works, the cables work and the HDMI to USB converter works. The drivers have been uninstalled and reinstalled. I have gone through every other option out there and I cant find anything regarding screen
    settings between different users.

    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Thank you in advance.
     
  3. 3rd monitor doesn't connect

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    To better understand your query, kindly reply to the following questions.

    1. Did you try setting up the cables again?

    2. Did you try giving the recommended resolution and check if the monitor is detected?

    I would suggest you to make sure that the monitors are connected to the correct video port.

    However, you can go to the device manager and disable the monitor which is not working.

    Follow the steps below.

    • Press Windows key + X key and click on
      Device Manager.
    • Expand the Monitors.
    • Right-click on the monitor and select Disable.
    • After sometime, try re-enabling it and check if the device gets detected.
    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have further related queries.

    Regards,
