Specs:
i7 8700k
Msi 2070
Z370-A Pro MSI motherboard
16 Gigabytes of ddr4 ram (forgot the brand and I could check but I don't think it's the issue here)

Every time I unplug my monitor from my PC, which I, unfortunately, have to do quite often, it will only recognize the integrated graphics. I have already: updated BIOS, made sure it was detecting PEG instead of IGD, checked for latest Nvidia drivers, have newest Windows 10 installed, and uninstalled the device in device manager, where it was hidden. (Was following directions for the top result of when I looked this up. Here's the link, https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/fix-nvidia-graphics-card-not-showing-device-manager/ . Usually, my computer will go back to using the 2070, but the delay that it takes going back to the right graphics source gets longer and longer each time I unplug and replug the PC.
