    Yep 100% correct, problem only occurs from cold start

    Couple of my other thoughts:-
    • Windows 10 Login background consistently changes, whilst I enjoy these fabulous images, could this be the reason for the delay
    • Day/date change which effects graphic card and therefore creates my problem
    • Windows 10 updates, but these do not happen on a daily basis

    Just getting frustrating as on some days I have exceptionally urgent things to do, yet I have to wait for approximately 20 mins

    Never had such a problem with Windows 7

    thanks again

    Have a look in Settings > Personalization > Lock Screen. There you can turn off the slid show, and set what background you want displayed.
    Not sure where your going with the Day/Date change? If its forgetting the Day/Date/Time, the CMOS battery may need to be replaced?
    Any time I get updates, I get a prompt on screen, with a % done etc.

    Just throwing this out there, if this was originally an upgrade, you might want to consider doing a Clean Install. Or doing a Windows Reset. I've had issues in the past after doing upgrades. On a clean install, on that same hardware, no such issues.

    I will adjust settings as you suggested, day/date/time my thinking was the problem only occurs the following day, battery is 100% ok

    Upgrades thank you, yes I understand

    Windows reset, please can you advise me on the best way to undertake this option

    Incidentally my HP laptop was returned under T&C's of guarantee due to a minor Bluetooth problem, HP upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 at my request

    OK, HP did the upgrade. I wonder if they did an upgrade or a factory image? What was the original OS it shipped with?
    Upgrade installs more often than not have issues. Starting over with a clean install often gets rid of the glitches. That's why I suggested maybe doing a Reset. It's as close to Clean install as you can get without actually doing one.
    Reset is this, Reset Windows 10 Read it over carefully. I haven't done one my self in a long while and can't remember what might get lost, if anything, in the process.

    I initially attempted to upgrade laptop to Windows 10 during which a had major problems, eventually my laptop disc locked, the laptop was due to be returned to HP so I also requested HP, in addition to fixing my minor Bluetooth problem upgrade to Windows 10

    The adjustments in the above post I did last night, problem still exists but I could use my external monitor within 10 minutes this morning, so vast improvement.!!!

    Reset, I will take a good look at

    Researching this problem on the internet, there appears to be a major general problem with Windows 10 as devices(PC/Laptops) do not like external monitors.?

    I run an external on my laptop with no issues. Mine is USB though. It has its own internal GPU and uses DisplayLink software/driver.
    I also run triple monitors on my desktop PC, all off of the one Video card, an NVidia GT640.

    I was hoping somebody else might chime in with something to try.

    Does Device Manager show any issues? Devices marked with a yellow ! or RED X? Might want to also have a look at the event viewer. Just type event into Search/Cortana.

    Thanks, Cortana personally not touched, but will take a good look tomorrow

    I thank you once again, but I am also somewhat disappointed others members of this forum have not Chimed In

    No had much time in the last week to investigate further, just had to live with the problem

    However, received an automatic Windows 10 update this morning, restarted my PC as requested and my external monitor automatically connected and today not incurred any further problems to my great surprise.?

    Could this be a one off or has the latest Windows update solved my problem, I do not know...

    I cannot risk this evening a restart as I have work to do, but I will keep you all updated in the next few days

    As I suspected yesterday was a one-off connection to my monitor following restart

    Today, exactly the same problem this morning, however I have noticed my monitor appears to be taking even longer to synchronise with my laptop and therefore produce display each and everyday

    In summary, when my monitor successfully connects to laptop, it is fine for the rest of that day, key issue being my laptop does not wish to know my monitor the following day for a period of time, which is now getting closer to one hour.

    Could the change of date be the route coarse of my problem in Windows 10, I stress again I have tested every possible scenario to resolve this problem, the only current solution appears to be:-

    Restart laptop in the morning, which is connected to external monitor and check every 15mins to see if I have a display on my external monitor

    Finally, I am seriously getting p*ssed off with this problem any further assistance would be appreciated
