  1. Monitors went black


    When trying to setup an external steering wheel for a game, I exited the steam software and all of my monitors went black. I still have power to the pc and everything connected to the pc, just the display wont show on my monitors. I tried switching the display cords from the gpu to my motherboard and there was no signal at the motherboard compared to the black screen I was getting when connected to the graphics card. Any help would be appreciated.

    :)

  2. Desktop with dual monitors one black

    Hi Frank,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the you have tried to resolve the issue and tried many steps. I really appreciate your efforts in resolving this issue. As you have mentioned that switching the cables make both the monitor
    work so I believe its not the driver issue. I would suggest you to try connecting another cable and check if the issue persists.

    Below is the Microsoft help article on How to connect a second monitor/ Multi monitors.

    Note: The steps for Windows 8/8.1 applies to Windows 10.

    If you are facing black screen issue on the second monitor I suggest you to refer to the below thread and follow the steps given:

    Hope this will fix the issue, if not let us know with the updated status and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank You.
