Hi

Today I installed my sparkly new GeForce RTX 2060 and what a treat it is! Except I have an annoying problem. I have two Dell P2312H monitors both attached from the cards DP to their DVI inputs. My machine is set to turn off the displays after 3 mins of inactivity. My number 2 monitor does just that, says it's entering power save mode, and stays quiet. My number 1 screen does the same; says 'entering power save mode', then goes black, but then immediately shows me the same message again, goes black then shows me the message again. It would do that all night if I let it.

I've tried updating the card driver, disabling the GeForce experience overlay (I read somewhere that may be the culprit), checked that they are both set up the same way, but still the problem persists.

Anyone any suggestions on what to look at next?

TIA
