Windows 7: Second monitor remains black

01 Dec 2012   #11

Windows 10 Education 64 bit

Yeah that's a nice extra touch. Assuming you know what it means and actually see it.
Where my tower is I'd have to have a flashlight to actually see that and even then it wouldn't be easy to see.

Windows 7 Professional x64

I had the very same problem, except : at boot time both monitors go on, I see the BIOS on both screens and I see the animated Windows 7 boot logo ''Starting Windows'', then a monitor goes off......

Needless to say, I tried any possible combination with VGA, DVI, and HDMI. Any connection in single monitor mode works. This is the second time I have this kind of problem with an XFX card. Both monitors are good as I removed the video card and uses the integrated one on the mobo.

Any ideas ?
