    Windows 10 Disconnected Displays-where did they go?

    The reply is not helpful. I have a similar problem and I use updated Nvidia drivers. There is a problem with Windows 10 handling multiple monitors. If I knew what the problem was, I'd say, but I don't. I do know that Windows 10 won't recognize monitors
    I've turned off, even though those monitors have updated drivers. The only work around I've found is to uninstall the video card drivers entirely, and re-install them. This seems to allow Windows 10 to recognize them again. But, don't turn off the monitor,
    as Windows 10 won't see it anymore. Then, it's uninstall the driver and re-install it again to get Windows 10 to work.

    Blank screen after November Windows 10 update

    I had a similar issue with my Acer 's monitor when the latetest update was installing.

    I messed my whole system up trying to reboot etc. to discover that the update messes something up in the power. My monitor was lit up but black screen like you experienced. I could not turn turn it off (light stayed on) I unplugged it and plugged it in and
    it seemed to be reset.

    Not knowing this of course I messed up Windows by powering off and on not knowing the monitor was the problem.

    Since my only solution was to roll back to an earlier build of Win 10 the monitor issue is gone but sooner or later this update will come back.

    I have several Windows 10 machines that dim or turn off the monitor as scheduled. How do you have it set in your power profile? Do you have the latest video and monitor drivers loaded?
