ok, here's the scoop. it's not your monitors. i have this same problem. i have two monitors hooked up to my laptop. i watch netflix on one and play skyrim on the other...........when they decide to work. it's not a problem with the drivers because it works and i've used it with no problems. however, sometimes it just randomly decides to not show anything on the second monitor. the operating system tells me that it is showing up on the second screen, but my eyes tell me otherwise. multiple reboots sometimes work, sometimes dont. i do believe that this is just one of those random Windows bugs that they are so notorious for. if anyone finds a workaround or a fix, please lemme know. i'm troubleshooting it as we speak

Just try to turn off DCR function of the monitor if it has it. It worked for mine!
