[quote mentionsUser="1903" postId="435200" threadPage="1" threadId="13828" username="drblah"]I finally bought a new monitor. The old ones are from 2007 and 2011 respectively. We 1440p @ 144hz now bby!
So far it has been a pretty sweet upgrade. I do have one question though: Is Display port supposed to be this weird?
At first I got no video output AT ALL during POST/BOOT if the new monitor was plugged in. Turns out I needed to install a Display port firmware upgrade for my GTX 1070 which seemed to fix it.
I still have one main issue though. If I turn off the new display (which is connected with Display port), my computer detects it and rearranges all my windows and icons. Is there a way to make it not do that?
If I turn off my old display, it is still detected as present which is nice since I don't like automatic power saving. Instead, I turn off my displays manually when I leave my computer.[/quote]
1) Never heard of a DisplayPort firmware upgrade on a GPU. DP always worked immediately.
2) how are you turning them off? Like a switch or just a button. The monitor might have a "Soft Off" mode where the monitor's circuit is still on for like <1Watt but won't disconnect it.
