Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.


Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Did this happen after a recent window or software update?
  • Have you made any hardware/software changes?

Extend or duplicate the desktop with a second monitor.

  1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop, and then click Display settings (Windows 10) 

  2. Make sure the correct number of monitors displays.

    Windows 10


    • If all of your monitors display, continue with these steps.

      note:Two monitors might display as one, with 1|2 in the center, indicating the same screen duplicated on two monitors. To change to an extended desktop display, continue with these steps.
    • If not all of your monitors display, make sure the cables are securely inserted, and then click Detect.

  3. Scroll down to Multiple displays, if necessary, click the drop-down menu, and then select a display option.

    To set up a wireless monitor, click Connect to a wireless display.

    If you cannot change the display options, go to the section to Configure the display with the graphics driver.

  4. Adjust the screen resolution and orientation, as necessary.

  5. Extended desktop only: Match the monitors on the display to how they are physically positioned. To identify the monitors, click Identify. Numbers display on the monitors to help you arrange them.

  6. Windows 10: Click Keep changes, if necessary, to save the new display settings.

And, also run BIOS Update: Follow steps from the link:


Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.
