Good day everyone!

I have a weird issue with my PC: Since this morning, only one display works at the same time.
If only my DisplayPort display is connected, it shows a normal image, but as soon as the
DVI cable of my secondary display is connected, my primary display shows no image, until
I unplug the DVI display. :oops:

In the windows settings, it is shown there is a second display, but activating does nothing but
reverting back to the DVI display.

Any idea guys?

Updated Nvidia Driver to latest version. As expected, did not chance anything.
I might add: The behavior also occurs, if the DVI display is turned off!
