  1. dual monitor bug


    I have dual monitors running on windows 10 pro. My main monitor works just fine, then monitor #2 will go black and lose detection as my computer sits idle for over an hour. I can correct the problem when I do a restart. The monitor will start working again. Also, part of this bug, monitor #2 does not get detected when the computer is in the off position. It will only work when I turn the computer on and then do a restart. I have tried plug and unplug. I have tried to make #2 my main display. I have tried to update drivers. I have tried to change arrangement of the monitors on the display function. The monitor works fine. The computer has a bug when it comes to sitting idle and from a cold start. I am at a loss and do not know what the next step to take in order to correct. do i need a new computer it is about 2 plus years old? I am no expert and could use some help. Thanks in advance to anyone that responds.

    :)

  3. Dual monitor, Dual mouse??

    Hello,

    Please share this information to assist you better.

    • How have you setup dual monitors?
    • Are you referring to use 2 different mouse/keyboard with the dual monitor setup?
    If yes, the mouse or keyboard may function same as one another. Since, it has to be connected to single PC/tower.

    However, setting up 2 different mouse/keyboard with the Dual- monitor setup, it may not function separately for each monitor.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will assist you further.

    Windows 10 Update - Now my dual monitors do not work

    Hi,





    One of the possible reasons why Windows 10 was unable to detect your dual monitor is an outdated or incompatible graphics driver. To best address your concern, we need you to answer the following questions:



    • Which Windows 10 build are you using?
    • Have you already tried performing the troubleshooting steps suggested by
      Mauro Cavallin on June 16, 2017?
    • Are both of the monitors not working just like what the original poster was experiencing? If yes, have you tried disconnecting one of the monitors? What was the outcome?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?


    We will be waiting for your response.
