Default 2nd monitor wont wake up


Ive got a new laptop running Windows 10. I have recently connected my old PC monitor using a DVI to HDMI cable.

When i turn the laptop on it doesnt detect the 2nd monitor.

I right click on the desktop and select Intel Graphics Settings - Display - Multiple Displays - I then need to detect the 2nd monitor.

At that point the 2nd monitor turns on and it runs fine.

When I close the laptop lid to put it to sleep it puts the 2nd monitor to sleep.

But when I open the laptop back up it doesn't wake the 2nd monitor up again and I have to repeat the whole detecting process again.

I have updated the drivers for the laptop (tried to update the 2nd monitor drivers but says I have the latest version).

Anyone got any ideas?

Use the windows settings and not the intel ones.

Also make sure to press windows button + p to choose if you want duplicate the display, extend it or use only the monitor and not the laptop's display.
