  2. Second monitor not detected after update

    Hi Tom,

    There are several reasons that could have caused the issue you are experiencing. One of these is the update you previously performed in Windows, either it was not configured properly by the system or the update components were corrupted. Kindly answer the
    following questions for clarification:

    • Have you tried updating the monitor and display drivers?
    • Have you tried to use another user profile to check if the issue re-occurs?

    Furthermore, we suggest that you add the other monitor manually. This is to ensure that the second monitor is still connected after the update. Here are the steps:

    • Type connected devices and open Connected Devices on the
      Windows Search bar.
    • Click Add devices.
    • Select the Second screen.
    • Pick one of the 3 options: Duplicate, Extend, and the Second screen only.
    • The Duplicate option will duplicate the primary display to secondary display.
    • The Extend option will unite two monitors so you can use them both as one.
    • The Second screen only option will, obviously, disable primary and use only the secondary monitor.
    • Once you’ve chosen the preferred mode, save changes.

    We're looking forward to your response.

    Things to do once connected new G-Sync monitor

    I'm getting my G-Sync monitor today.

    I think I have to take the following steps:

    • Connect 1440p G-sync monitor with DP cable
    • Connect second 1080p 60Hz monitor by HDMI
    • Startup PC
    • Reinstall display driver
    • Restart PC (I always do that after display driver install)
    • Activate G-Sync in NV control panel (I believe also V-Sync is auto on after that?)
    • Set my 1440p monitor from 1080p to 1440p
    • Calibrate my 1440p monitor
    Also ingame, I should turn off V-Sync?
    Are there any problems running a second 60Hz 1080p monitor?

    Is there anything else I should do/know?

    issue with second monitor

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand the inconvenience caused. I will be glad to assist you with this.

    I would suggest you to download the display driver from the manufacturer's website. If there are no driver for windows 10, download the latest driver and install it in compatibility mode by following the steps below:

    After you have downloaded the driver:



    a) Right-click on the setup file of the driver and select "Properties".

    b) Select "Compatibility" Tab.

    c) Place a check mark next to "Run this program in Compatibility mode" and select the

    appropriate operating system from the drop down list.

    d) Let the driver install and then check the functionality

    I would also suggest you to refer to the link below for steps to set up dual monitor in your system.

    Connect a second monitor or projector (Applies to windows 10)

    You can also refer to the suggestion by Karthik from this link
    for more information.

    Hope this helps. Do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to help.
