    Pop up window still "displaying" on 2nd monitor which I no longer have


    I was previously using 2 monitors, now I'm only using 1 my laptop. Whilst using a program, when I open up a popup window, it still thinks it's being "displayed" on the other monitor.


    How do I resolve this? I no longer have any access to the 2nd monitor, and I'm using Windows OS 10 Enterprise.


    Thanks for your help.

    :)

  2. 2nd monitor no longer recognised

    Hi Pratiksha

    Thanks for responding.

    MY PC is ASUS Desktop PC A_F_K31ADE (64bit, 8gig RAM). Windows 10 Home edition.

    Before anything else, I want you to understand that up until today I had no problem with display of my 2nd monitor. It was only after I disconnected and re-connected the VGA cable (over a different issue) that the connection was lost. I also never had this
    problem with my previous PC which was retired only a few weks ago. I am using ther same monitors (Voewsonic VP2635 and 2nd is Viewsonic VA702 - an oldie but which has worked fine until now and is perfectly OK for my needs as a second monitor.

    The error message on my 2nd monitor is "NO SIGNAL" in blue font, otherwise it is blank.

    I have tried different VGA cables - one new and one which works on other PCs. There is no other socket on my VA702.

    As you suggested I disconnected the primary monitor's DVA cable and rebooted but nothing changed.

    If I right-click desktop - display settings - only monitor 1 shows and clicking detect gets "Didn't detect another display". Similarly no 2nd monitor shows in Devices; Device Monitor - Monitors.

    Driver NVIDEA GeForce GT 710 messaage id thst driver is up to date.

    If I go to NVIDEA control panel only monitor 1 shows and if I click on "set up multiple displays" there is no 2nd monitor showing. I clicked "detect missing display" (for older monitors etc) but nothing found.

    In windows key/ P display settings I highlighted "extend" as choicer for display - nothing changed.Having looked through MS forums and also having googled my problem it is impossible to mescape the fact that there a thousands having the same problem as
    I am and I cannot feel more frustrated as to go about my job I need 2 monitors. I find it hard to believe that with all the weeping and wailing from so many oters re this issue I am now stuck with a single monitor PC!!

    I

  3. 2nd display monitor

    Hello, my name is Brad, I'm an Independent Advisor and I wanted to add to my colleagues' efforts.

    Below is a link to a walk-through that will show you each step to enabling the 2nd monitor.

    On the walkthrough, if you click the button that says "Open Display Settings" and says "Ok" to the prompt, the Display Control panel will be opened on your computer for you. Not worry, this page is hosted by a different part of Microsoft so it's perfectly safe.

    Pop up window still "displaying" on 2nd monitor which I no longer have

    Color Display on 2nd monitor

    I am using Windows 10 on a Dell laptop with a 2nd monitor which has been working fine. For some unknown reason I have suddenly lost the full color range on the 2nd monitor. I don't know if I have changed some setting by accident or what. I have tried
    resetting the defaults but that didn't change anything on the 2nd monitor. The primary screen on the laptop continues to work fine. Any suggestions what needs to be done to restore the full color range on monitor #2?
