Hello,


I normally have four monitors connected to my GPU (1080), 3 of them are 144hz and are connected via. display port, and the last HDMI.

But sometimes after leaving my PC on for a while, the monitors after returning to them, does not turn on from a slumber.
After restarting, only a single monitor work (144hz) the others have 'No signal', despite being connected.

Now to the mysterious part; when I tried to troubleshoot, I unplugged the working monitor, and suddenly the three others turn on and work fine.
No matter what I do I can only manage to get three screens working at the same time.



I have tried;

  • Updating drivers
  • Tried all monitors alone (they all work alone)
  • Restarting my PC with different monitors connected.
  • Turned off all electricity to both the PC and the monitors.
  • *Updated my BIOS to the newest version.
I'm clueless to what might have happend, and would love some help, thanks in advance.

When posting a thread of troubleshooting nature, it's customary to include your full system's specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Have you tried uninstalling your drivers and working with the ones sourced by the OS(assuming you're on Windows 10)? How old is your PSU and GPU? Make sure you're on the latest BIOS update for your motherboard.
