    Duplicate Display Issues


    Every time i try to 'duplicate display' my main display just goes black and my second monitor now becomes my main, and only display.

    I have been able to do this in the past, so thinking it might of been a Windows 10 update?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    What kind of Graphics card do you have?

    Do you have the latest drivers?

    Windows X (various flavours)

    Are you setting duplicate display in Nvidia app or in Windows.
    Try Winkey+P.

    Windows 7

    I had the exact same issue. Although I was aware that my Windows 7 laptop (with Intel gpu and Nvidia 525m dual graphics) required you to use the Nvidia control panel to correctly clone the display I noticed that the option was completely omitted on the Nvidia control panel in Windows 10. By January I downgraded back to Windows 7 where everything works as it should.

    Does anyone know of a solution to this? I wouldn't mind completing the move to Windows 10 at some point. Right now though I'm quite happy with Windows 7 - old reliable!
