  1. Second Display Port Monitor not working


    So I bought a new monitor and I connected it to the first display port from my GPU. I want to use my second monitor who was plugged with DVI-D but the cable was short so i searched on google and my old monitor supports 144 hz full hd with display port too so i bought one display port cable to connect the second one and when i put it on the display port 2 it didn't work. It detects it but on monitor it says no signal, in windows at display it says that the monitor is inactive. What should I do to fix it? I tried new driver updates, replugging the monitor, pulling out the power cord. I tested with hdmi to hdmi with my laptop and the monitor works.

  2. windows Can't detect my second monitor

    Hi Max,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand that you are having a tough time working on the computer.

    I will certainly help you to resolve the issue.


    • What happens when you try to connect the second monitor?

    • Do you receive any error code/message?

    • Have you tried to connect the second monitor on a different port?
    I suggest you to connect second display using a different port available on your PC and check if the second display works. If second display works in other port, then the possible cause for this issue may be discrete video card driver.


    Let us try the following steps, and check it helps.

    Step 1: Run the Hardware and Devices
    troubleshooter.

    Hardware and Devices troubleshooter checks for common problems and makes sure that any new device or hardware connected to your PC is installed correctly.


    • Type troubleshooting in the search bar.

    • Select Troubleshooting.

    • Select View all on the top left corner.

    • Click on Hardware and Devices.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to run the troubleshooter.
    Step 2: Update the Display Adapter.


    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Device Manager.

    • Expand Display Adapter.

    • Right click on the video driver and select
      Update Driver Software.

    • Restart the computer.

  4. Second Display Port Monitor not working

    Windows 10, second monitor is not working

    Hi,

    Have you tried connecting the secondary monitor directly through the HDMI ports?

    You have mentioned that you are able to see only one 'Generic PnP monitor' displayed in the device manager. In this case I would suggest you to check if the Device is listed as a hidden device. Click on the 'View' option in the device manager menu and click
    on 'Show hidden devices' and check if the second monitor is listed now. If not, then visit the manufacturer's website to download the latest drivers and install it in compatibility mode and check if it recognized by the device manager. Let us know the results
    for further assistance.
