Second monitor works only when I lock the PC and the lock screen is on. But when I log in the monitor doesn't work, the display doesn't detect any source. The monitor is detected in Settings, but when I try to toggle the monitor on, the toggle button just goes back to off state. It won't let me toggle it on.

  • Can you provide more info? Laptop or desktop? How do you connect the second monitor to your computer? – Giulio Sant Oct 3 '15 at 15:21
  • It's desktop, it's connected via HDMI. But it worked now after disconnecting HDMI and starting the OS and then connceting HDMI again. – neX Oct 4 '15 at 16:47

  • It can get really annoying. I hope it gets fixed soon. Mod for Elementary OS IRC (he is also dev for EOS) said some dev will look at this problem when I linked him this question. – neX Oct 12 '15 at 20:37
