Well like most of us mobility workers, we don’t always make it into the office. Today I showed up at the office and actually had time to sit at my desk. Odd, my 3rd monitor wasn’t working. Worked fine in Windows 8.1.

Did the usual checks…

  • Windows 10 is not even showing the monitor in the display settings
  • Unplug and re-plug the cables
  • Check the drivers
  • I unplugged my 2nd monitor which was working and the 3rd monitor kicked in@

System Graphics cards:

  • Intel Core i7 w/ Intel HD Graphics
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M

The Fix:

  1. Upgraded the drivers, Windows 10 still did not show it. But now I’m 100% updated!
  2. Looked at settings in NVIDIA Control Pannel. NVIDIA showed that all the monitors were connected to the Intel HD GraphicsNVIDIA Control Panel
  3. Next step was to load the Intel Graphics Properties and click the Multiple DisplaysIntel Graphics Control Panel
  4. Fixed! Life is grand!
