  2. Monitor not receiving signal from pc after using hdmi passthrough

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    HDMI Pass-Through does not work with all devices. Before attempting to set up an HDMI Pass-Through connection, you should make sure the source of the signal such as a Blu-ray player or Set Top Box, supports HDMI Pass-Through.

    In order to get clarity on this issue and assist you with appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the answers to the questions below.

    1. Did you try a different HDMI cable to connect your PC to the monitor?
    2. When you say "my pc will not display to my monitor", are you able to see any error message on it? For example: 'No signal'.

    Meanwhile, try the below suggestions and check if this helps.

    • If your monitor has an option in the Menu Button to switch the
      Input Source to HDMI Port, I would suggest you to try it.
    • Try completely disconnecting your Xbox from the computer and just connect your computer to the monitor and check if you are able to see the display on the monitor.
    • Make sure your display is plugged in and turned on.
    • Unplug the video cable from both your display and PC, and then reconnect them firmly. After you reconnect the video cable, try moving your mouse on your display.
    • Try connecting to different video outputs on your PC. Sometimes a change in driver can cause the video to be sent to a different display adapter or output.
    • If you have your own display adapter installed and connected to your display,
      try connecting your display to the built-in video on the motherboard.
    • Check for damaged HDMI cable, loose connections, or faulty adapters.

    Hope it helps.

    We're looking forward to your response.

    Windows Explorer Crashes After Dual Screen Monitors Turn Off - Diplayport + HDMI Connections

    Platform: Windows 10 Pro Build 14393

    Connections: HDMI to Displayport adapter on one screen native HDMI on the other

    Hi everyone,

    I am using a desktop PC with 2 AOC monitors that are connected to an Nvidia Quadro 2000 via

    • Native HDMI
    • HDMI to Displayport adapter to the Displayport in the graphics card
    I am using Windows 10's Snap function all the time and whenever the screens turn off due to power saving settings, when I turn on the screen again, it seems that Windows Explorer restarts and the snaps are out of order - Instead of having windows on quarters
    of the screen, the windows are on halves and they are all on the left screen only. I am assuming that this is because of the system's different detection times of both monitors due to the different modes of connections to the screens but is there anything
    that can be done to prevent the snaps from getting out of order?

    Thanks,

    Trying to connect two monitors to my PC using HDMI split adapter. Not detecting both screens

    PC will not detect second monitor


    So....I'm trying to connect a second monitor to my pc but it is not able to detect the second monitor. OS is windows 10 and my gfx card is a geforce gtx 1050. there are 2 hdmi ports and one dvi port on the dedicated gfx card - main screen is connected via hdmi (which is working fine) but the second monitor i'm trying to connect only has a vga port so i'm using a dvi-vga converter. all the connections should be fine and all my drivers are up to date. i tried detecting the second screen through the nvidia control options and the windows display options but I'm not able to get my pc to detect the second monitor. if anyone can help me troubleshoot this issue, it'd be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance.
