    My second monitor shows the same thing as the first but isn't detected by my computer


    I restarted my desktop PC and noticed my second monitor mirroring the first monitor. I went into advanced display settings but could not find a solution and in the device manager in the control panel, I only see one monitor called generic PnP Monitor.

    :)

  2. Computer not detecting the second monitor

    Hello,

    I have a Dell all in one desktop model- Inspiron 24 Model 3459, however, it is not detecting my second monitor. I have attempted to detect automatically as well as manually, updated the driver, uninstalled
    and reinstalled the driver. However, my computer is still not detecting the second monitor. Please help!!!

  3. Second monitor not detected

    Hello,

    May we know if you've already tried the suggestion provided by Robert Aldwinckle on forums on this

    thread
    ?

    If Windows can't detect your second monitor, it's usually a driver problem. It could be due to your video driver being outdated, incorrect or faulty. It's also possible that your monitor driver is causing the problem.

    Since the issue occurred after the latest update, it's possible that the video or monitor drivers require an update. Try looking for the updated version of the drivers on the device manufacturer's website and follow their instructions.

    If the issue persists, try to roll back the drivers to the last good configuration. To do that, you may follow these steps:

    • Right-click the Start button and select Device Manager.
    • Right-click your device driver, select Properties, and browse to the
      Driver tab.
    • Press the Roll Back Driver option if available, and Windows 10 will begin the process.

    Let us know how it turns out.

  4. My second monitor shows the same thing as the first but isn't detected by my computer

    Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.
