Windows 8.1 – Not Detecting Third Monitor
Well I finally installed Windows 8.1, and although I finally got used to not having the Start button around, I’m not really going to complain about its return.
So the first problem I came across was that my third monitor was not working/detected.
My third monitor uses a DVI to¬†miniDP converter, so I have a miniDP, HDMI and DVI connection setup on my desktop.
In order to resolve this issue all I had to do was remove all the monitor cables from the graphics card, and connect the each one by themselves using their original connectors.
In this case, I removed the DVI to¬†miniDP converter, and just connected the third monitor using its DVI connector – Windows was able to detect it and install the driver.
Following that I just plugged in all the cables as they were, and voila – three working monitors on Windows 8.1
Hope that helps someone down the line ūüôā
