I have run into a strange issue and was hoping someone could help me get to the bottom of it. My screens have got a bit confused.
I am running windows 10 on a desktop PC with one low resolution monitor and one 1080p TV. for the past couple of days the PC has been identifying the monitor as the TV and vice versa. The result is that the display settings say that the larger screen is the second screen and has a resolution of about 1080p while it actually displays it on the smaller, low resolution, screen. As you may imagine, it also identifies the smaller screen in display settings as screen 1 and lists it with a resolution of 640 x 480, yet it dispays it on the larger hi resolution screen.
The result is a mess as the big screen only shows about a quarter of that which should be displayed yet the smaller screen is looking fine.
I have attached a screen shot which should make this a little clearer.
In short, PC thinks the big screen is the little one and the little one is the big one.
I have had a lot of trouble since upgrading to windows 10 regarding the graphics card. Issues include, video streaming unable to play after waking but this seemed to have sorted itself out and when switching between different audio outputs it will sometimes switch but outputs no audio. I have no idea if this is connected.
This current issue seems to be intermittent as occasionally it does display on the correct screen. I have not noticed a pattern in my start up sequence that could explain why it sometimes works.
I have tried unplugging the screen and it did not seem to help and have turned the pc and the screens off and on more than I like to admit but alas, not luck.
If yo have any ideas or key terms I could look into i would be very grateful.
Edit: In the screen shot, the little image (display settings) to the right is what is showing on my big tv screen and the big image to the left is what is showing on my little monitor.
