  1. Windows change screens after computer turns off monitor


    Hi,


    I have a Dell Workstation connected to an external monitor, and every time the computer idles and turns off the monitors, all my windows are replaced in the primary screen and resized to a lower resolution. This behavior started right after a windows 10 version 1903 update in October 2019.


    I have tried everything there's out there (i.e., looking for ghost monitors, updating display drivers, changing display ports, reinstalling display drivers from scratch), and nothing seems to work. It behaves as if I disconnected the cables from the external monitor (Which I don't) every time it shuts off.


    A couple of weird things I noticed is that after a while, the borders of explorer windows disappear along with the shadow of the active windows, and the brightness sporadically goes back to 0 on its own (No light sensor on this machine). It is very baffling, but very annoying since I have to choose between security from my computer locking every time I leave my desk or manually rearranging all my windows every time I come back.


    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

    :)

    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
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
