  1. Multiple Displays No Longer Working In all Recent Builds


    I'm sure you've seen our feedback. But multiple display setup is no longer working in Windows. I've actually tried two clean installations of Windows 10 Pro and updating to the latest builds but the second monitor is never detected. HDMI won't work, no other port except the default one where Windows is showing works.


    I've tried with an NVIDIA GT 710, so stressful I ended up trashing the card because I thought the GPU had failed. I started having issues after a power cut. So I purchased a high end top of the food-chain graphics card, a Radeon RX 580, but still no joy even after a clean install.


    I tried all the tricks in the trade, nothing works, including the latest 'Blank Screen' button combo, deleting keys and editing keys in the registry, firmware updates and re-installs and resets of motherboard BIOS, the NVIDIA GT 710 firmware (reinstall from a working backup I had), now fetching the latest update yet again, but still no joy.


    How can Microsoft mess up display code and driver functionality like this? The screen flickers at times especially after connecting the second monitor and trying to force Windows to recognize it, what I recognized is both my displays going blank immediately and going into power save modes.


    In the feedback hub, we have to wait for a thousand other pissed off users to up-vote before anything is done! I guess you know that it takes people a while and sometimes costly upgrades like mine before opening and logging some feedback in the feedback hub, moreover, not everyone who uses Windows has a dual monitor setup or uses multiple monitors....


    Please attend to this issue or expedite the techs to fix this in the updates that just seem to be consuming data but fixing nothing essential.\

    :)
