  2. Project Second screen constantly appearing.

    Hi Norga,

    Thank you for using Windows 10.

    Let us know some more information so that we can diagnose and troubleshoot the issue in a better way:

    • what is the exact issue that you want us to help with? Do you want to get help in projecting a second screen or to remove the popup?
    • As you've said " I tried unsuccessfully to project a screen", do you wish to project a second screen currently?
    • What happened exactly when you tried to project a second screen? Did you receive any error message or any error code?
    The popup comes as the system might not be able to detect the monitors. I suggest you to update the Display drivers, it may force the system to detect the available monitors. Here is the steps:

    • Press “Windows + X” and select Device manger.
    • Locate the driver and expand the driver icon.
    • Right click on the driver icon and click on Update.

    Reply with the information and we'll be happy to assist you.

    Can not use two monitors. Error message: "The display settings could not be saved. Please try a different combination of display settings"

    Hello,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    • Since when are you facing this issue with the monitors?
    • Which build version of Windows 10 is installed on your computer?
    • What happens when you try to duplicate the monitors?

    I suggest you to try changing the display ports of the monitors and check if the second monitor is getting detected.



    I suggest you to follow the methods mentioned below and check if that helps.

    Method 1: Try rolling back the driver.

    To roll back the driver to previous build follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Press and hold the Windows + X key on the keyboard.
    2. Select Device manager.
    3. In Device manager, expand Display adaptor.
    4. Right click on NVIDIA
      Drivers and select Properties.
    5. Navigate to the Driver tab and click on Roll Back Driver.
    6. Restart the computer.

    Method 2: Change the screen resolution.

    1. Go to Settings>System>Display.
    2. Under Resolution, set the resolution as 1024 x 768.
    3. Set the same resolution on the other monitor.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.



    Regards,

    Panel Project on second monitor

    Hi,





    There are a lot of factors for this matter to occur. To isolate the issue, we have some questions for you:




    • Have checked your display settings if your first monitor was set as the main display?

    • Have you checked if your drivers are updated?

    • Does this matter occur before?

    • Were there any changes made before the issue occur?

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done
      so far?



    We'll be waiting for your response.



    Regards.
