DisplayPort Not Recognized on <Service tag removed>

This question has been answered by cakissig

Hello:

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.

System

CPU i7-7700K

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:

Christian

    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.
