The offending monitor is plugged in using an HDMI cable and will work in safe mode but will be stuck on the black screen and mouse pointer otherwise. The monitor is an HP w2207h, and I've already tried installing new drivers
I've tried using VGA and that won't even show up. Do I need to get another HDMI if I'm going to use this monitor (assuming you're able to help me get it working by itself) as a second screen?
I've tried it with my laptop and it works. It appears to be a driver
issue with my desktop or something like that, but I'm dumbfounded.
When I boot into safe mode on the offending monitor and go into screen resolution, the monitor has no name.
I also recently had to run system restore in safe mode on my desktop for an unrelated issue (my user account lost administrative privileges and I couldn't get them back. I don't think malware had anything to do with it, but what do I know).
