Have you ever experienced a situation where your computer was turning on but you weren’t getting a display on your monitor while you were connected to DisplayPort? If so, you are not alone. In this blog post, we will share with you a troubleshooting tip that might help you fix the issue.
The first thing you should do is turn everything off, unplug your monitor, and wait for a few seconds (30 seconds should be enough). After that, plug it back in, turn the computer on, and see if your DisplayPort is working again. This worked for many users, and it might work for you too.
If you have been trying to troubleshoot the issue for hours, like many others, and have tried different solutions, this simple tip might save you time and frustration. In most cases, people are going around switching cables, switching settings on their BIOS, or even RMA-ing their graphics cards when all they had to do was unplug their monitor for a few seconds.
It is worth noting that some people suggest that the cable has to be a type of compliant for it to work. But in reality, this might not be the issue. The problem could be that your monitor is retaining some settings with the display for it that whenever you turn the computer back on (after it has gone to sleep), it doesn’t pick it up anymore, and it only works on DVI.
To confirm if this method works, right-click on your desktop, open the video control panel, and set up the audio. Verify that you are connected to DisplayPort, and it is showing a signal. You can also check the display settings and display adapter properties to confirm.
If you have been troubleshooting for hours and still can’t fix the issue, give this method a try. It might save you time and frustration. And if it works for you, don’t forget to share the tip with your friends and family who might be experiencing a similar problem.
In conclusion, if you have a GTX 1080 and the Aces VG 24 8qe monitor, and you can’t get DisplayPort to work, try unplugging your monitor for a few seconds. This simple tip might fix the issue.
