Second monitor issues

HP Envy x360
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, I have a HP Envy x360 with an AMD Ryzen 5 processor. I have connected my Envy to a HP LE1901w monitor, using a USB 3.1 Type-C to VGA adapter cable.

Sometimes the 2nd monitor springs into action and I can use it for hours, however sometimes it does not turn on at all.

I can be using my laptop for a couple of hours and it starts working all of a sudden.

I check on the display settings and it is not there, I press windows + P to extend but nothing happens. I have tried 2 other HP monitors and the same thing happens.

Has anyone got any ideas, thanks

Hi, thank you for taking the time to look at my issue. I have carried out your fix and there were a few updates that were needed. However, it has not resolved my monitor issue?

Do you have this issue with the second monitor from day one?

 

Have you tried using a different USB Type-C to VGA Adapter? Have you tried the Monitor with other computers or Notebooks without using the USB to VGA Adapter?

Second monitor issues

Hi KrazyToad, yes I have tried a different cable and a different notebook. I have even removed another usb connection I had in the same side and moved it to the other side?

Yes I have had this problem since the beginning. I was using the 2nd screen all day yesterday with no issues, but this morning its not coming on. I suspect that in a couple of hours it will just start working. This is the 3rd screen I have tried

I suggest you download and run the AMD Auto Detect Tool and it will automatically search for the latest Graphics driver for your Notebook

 

Please follow the instructions in this Link: https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/faq/gpu-131

 

If the issue persists I suggest you attempt a Reset. You can refer to this Link: https://support.hp.com/in-en/document/c04742289
