Note: Before you start with any of the solutions down below, navigate lớn the device manager (Windows + R and “devmgmt.msc”) và disable your GPU. After disabling it, enable it again. The problem was solved for the majority of the cases using this workaround.

Solution 1: Checking display connection 

The first và foremost thing which you should kiểm tra is the port where your display is connected. There are usually two ports where you can attach your display cable. Either you can connect the display lớn your Hãng Intel integrated graphics or to your NVIDIA graphics hardware. This is where most of the people get confused.

The port which is integrated with the motherboard is the display which is outputted by Intel HD graphics. The display which you see downwards is the display that is connected with your graphics hardware.
