    Turn off monitor problem


    Hi
    Sometimes I need my PC to keep working even though I'm not there, so I want to turn off my monitors, but if I do that and then when I turn them back on again later, all the apps that were on second and third screen have moved to screen one.

    Is there any way to make all apps stay where they are ?

    Using Windows 10 pro 64 bit fully updated.
    2 x 32" screens 2560x1440 in 125% font + one drawing tablet 1920x1080 in 100% font.

    Thanks in advance
    Best regards
    Asger

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman

    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds

  3. i have a problem to connect 2 monitors.

    Hi Ron,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    • What changes did you make in the BIOS? As making the changes in the BIOS is only recommended by Microsoft if done by the manufacturer.
    • How are you connecting to the 2nd monitor?
    I suggest you to follow the steps from this article below:

    [Applies to Windows 10 as well]

    Regards.

    Turn off monitor problem

    Odd monitor problem

    Odd monitor problem *NEW INFO*

    I have a monitor (listed in my specs) that sometimes does not turn on when the computer is started or brought out of sleep mode. If I unplug the power cord & plug it back in it works fine, no other problems with it at all. Any thoughts? Is it eminently going to fail, should I RMA?
