[SOLVED] Second monitor picture not being recognised on Windows 10 (Surface 3)

Hi all,

So a couple of weeks ago my second monitor (a television) stopped working with my Surface.

When I plug it into the adapter my screen goes black for a second as if it's registering it, but then nothing. If I go to 'Display' in my control panel, I can see that the second monitor is there, and also if I go to my speaker settings the TV is there as an option, so it must recognise it to some extent.

I thought it was the wire so i ordered a new one but it still isn't working. I've tried using a different TV too but still isn't working so it's not a problem with the TV.

I've tried updating the driver but it says I have the latest version.

Any ideas? I use the HDMI to watch TV religiously so this is very annoying.

Thanks!
Jack

Yes, it is being extended and if I move my cursor all the way to the right of my laptop screen it doesn't stop, it continues onwards to the second screen
