Solved!

Second monitor stopped working

Omen 17-an0xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Installed some new corsair 8gb (2) stick of RAM. Accidentally plugged the second monitor in while pc was booting, that leaves the pc to believe that it's a big screen. Shows only 1 display if i boot the pc with the second monitor plugged in. After doing a hard reset, system restore it still won't work by me letting the system boot then getting to desktop and plugging in 2nd monitor.

 

Didn't have this issue before. Before i could just start the pc, plug in 2nd monitor and boom worked. now i plug it in, i hear the noise of a new device but both screens go blank.

Second monitor stopped working

I’ve tried using load defaults on BIOS that had no effect. Now it shows my second monitor being the primary and I can’t change the display settings it also shuts off my laptop screen. When I boot my bios with my second monitor plugged in it only loads on my laptop screen. I’ve tried new HDMI cords. Running video tests now.
