    Windows 10 not detecting 2nd monitor


    I have a dual monitor setup. I have 2 AOC e2252V monitors that would work fine on Windows 7. I have all updated drivers. I've checked the internet for multiple solutions but everyone's problem seemed to be that they didnt extend their displays. My problem is that both windows 10 and my graphics card are not detecting it. They are both connected to the DVI-D connections on my MSI R9 390 graphics card (installed with the latest drivers from 11/30/2015 on the MSI website.) One monitor is hooked up from VGA through a DVI-D adapter to connect to my graphics card. I assumed this wasn't the problem because I did the same thing on my previous card where it worked just fine. I checked to see if one of my DVI-D connections were faulty on the card, but my one monitor hooked up directly through a DVI-D cable (no adapter) works on both of them. If I hook up my TV through HDMI connection, it will detect my TV. I wonder if this is a problem with Windows 10, MSI R9 390, or the adapter. If anyone has a solution or advice, that would be greatly appreciated.
    These are pictures of some of what I'm talking about.

  3. 2nd monitor not being detected

    Received a software update for windows 10. Upon restart my 2nd monitor was no longer working. Went to the display section in Settings and it is not being detected. Pushed the detect button and nothing. How do I get this back. My 2nd monitor is more
    important than any new things in the update.

    Have you tried just one monitor using the adapter? That way if it works you have eliminated the adapter as the problem.

    Tried using the monitor with the adapter by itself in both ports, still didn't work. Restarted both times. I forgot to mention in the original post that every time I go to all control panel items->troubleshooting->view all->hardware and devices it always tells me that I have to restart my computer to correctly install drivers and updates.

  6. I went on the MSI website and they mention that to get the latest drivers go to the AMD website.

    I would suggest you go to the AMD site and get the latest driver. Uninstall your current driver and install the new one. It is worth a try.
