Black screen on one screen if there is no open window

Recommended Posts

I have a very strange problem: I use 3 monitors and monitor number 2 is my main monitor. I get a black screen there if I don't have any open window there. It looks like the monitor is off. As soon as I move a window onto the screen, I have the normal desktop view with the corresponding window. Does anyone else have this and does anyone know how to help...?

Quick Fix 1
I’ll recommend restarting your computer if you haven’t already. Some minor issues get fixed by just a simple reboot.

You can force a shutdown by pressing the power button for 10 seconds. Then press it again to restart your computer.

Quick Fix 2
Attempt to wake the screen up by pressing Windows logo key + Ctrl + Shift + B.

If you are on tablet mode, press volume-up, and volume-down together three times within two seconds.

You’ll hear a short beep while windows attempt to bring the screen live.
