  2. Issues while installing a second monitor in Windows 10

    Really? I get a canned answer and nothing else? I posted that I had tried everything that I could find posted online. I did read the post that Andre suggested multiple times prior to posting this request for help. None of it helped.

    My computer does not recognize that there is a second monitor is plugged in. The small step of changing the settings so I can put stuff on the second monitor ISN'T the issue. I am not that dumb. in the device manager there is only the single monitor listed
    at one point there was a unknown device listed but my computer did not know if it was a monitor or a printer.

    There has to be someone out there that knows how to fix this

    Please Help

  3. Error: No signal on second monitor after upgrade to Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community, we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand your inconvenience caused to you with accessing the second monitor, we will help you with this issue.

    This issue might have occurred due to outdated/ corrupted drivers.

    As you have already tried to update the drivers and issue still persists, I suggest you to uninstall the existing drivers for second monitor and re0install them from the manufacturer's website.

    Step 1: Steps to uninstall the drivers for the Display Adapter.

    • Press Windows key + X key when you are at desktop.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapter.
    • Right on the Display Adapter and click on
      Uninstall
      .
    • Restart the computer.

    Step 2: Also, contact the manufacturer's website and try to install those drivers for your device.

    You can install Windows 8/8.1 drivers in compatibility mode if there are no Windows 10 compatible drivers.

    Follow the steps to install in Compatibility mode:

    • Download the updated driver from the manufacturer’s website.
    • Right click the driver installation file and select
      Properties then tap or click the Compatibility tab.
    • Place a check in the Run this program in compatibility mode for: box.
    • Tap the drop down box and select a previous operating system, then tap or click
      OK.
    • Try installing the driver and check.

    To know more about this issue, I suggest you to refer to the article by

    c) Place a check mark next to "Run this program in Compatibility mode" and select the

    appropriate operating system from the drop down list.
