Windows 7: Second monitor will not come on after sleeping

22 Oct 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Second monitor will not come on after sleeping

This problem started about a week ago. I have two monitors on a home built PC. I'm running Win 7 Ultimate and have a GeForce 9500GT video card. I've had no problems for months. I do not typically turn the system off, I just let it sleep. No when I wake it up, only the primary monitor comes on, the second monitor remains dark. The Win Control Panel indicates both monitors are fine, the Device Manager shows both monitors with no problems, even the nVidia control panel shows both monitors. If I reboot, everything is fine; both monitors are back on. Any thoughts?
