When I switch from HDMI to DisplayPort on my new <Service tag removed> monitor, it gives the usual message of "The monitor will enter low power mode...etc."
I am using the DisplayPort cable provided with the monitor.
Motherboard: ASUS Prime Z270-AR
GPU: EVGA 1080 Ti SC2 Hybrid
SSD: 960 Evo
RAM: EVGA SC 16GB 3000 MHz
When I keep trying the cable, sometimes it shows the display, but none of my windows will open. It looks like it is treating it as a second monitor. I've included a photo of when that happens. I can't see my shortcuts (Recycle Bin, etc.). I can open programs but the windows never pop onto the screen.
Thank you in advance for your help:
I actually figured it out but thank you for the response!
I had both my HDMI cable and the DisplayPort cable plugged into the monitor (S2417DG) at the same time and it was confusing the system. It thought that I had plugged in two monitors and was extending the display across those monitors.
Removing the HDMI cable from the monitor and the GPU fixed the problem.
Thanks for posting, and for posting the specifics of your computer. Which monitor are you connecting to?
