    Remote Desktop stopped working properly after changing GPU


    Hi guys. I have a strange issue that i couldnt solve by searching the web: after installing a replacement GPU, RDP now only connects to the home server when i have "use all my monitors" enabled.

    If i have it unticked the session will try to open on my second monitor - which is connected to the onboard GPU, unlike the first, which is connected to the discrete one - as usual, but blurt out a connection error after starting to render the remote desktop.

    If i tick "use all my monitors" in RDP settings, a connection is made, but displayed on my main screen.

    Can anyone help me solve this extremely annoying issue?

    Hi there.

    Check the RDP resolution settings on YOUR CLIENT. The computer you are using to RDP to your remote computer might not be able to handle Max video output of the GPU on the remote computer. In any case going over a network it's probably better to reduce video transfer to 16 or 24 bit max.

    Do it in the RDP connection settings.

    Im afraid not. I understand this, and the remote computer has the same resolution as the second monitor RDP usually works on. Manually setting the remote desktop size just shows the error message in a window on the second screen.

    The only way to make it connect seems to be to tick "use all monitors", at which point it works but by extending the desktop from my first 1440p screen to the second...
