HI! I am new to these forums and wanted to give you a bit of my computers background before getting into the exact problem.
I Have an AMD FX 4300 Quad core 3.8 GHZ
Windows 10 Pro 64bit OS
8 GB Ram
1 TB HD
AMD Radeon R7 200 Series Graphics Card (core clock 1000 MHz) software version 17.7.2
2 very old Acer LCD wide screen monitors. one a P191W and the other a AL1916W (at least that is what my graphics card tells me)
I built this a few years ago.
I build my computers myself, well... put them together myself, I want to move on to case modifying next, however that is a bit more money than I have atm. So that is my basic specs. Now to get to my problem, which started after the last windows update, so yesterday...
I must mention that my graphics card recognizes both of my monitors individually; windows however, only seems to recognize them both as one huge monitor. My display reads as one monitor with a display resolution of 2880 x 900. When I try to detect it, it registers only one monitor and yet both monitors work. When I went into device manger to see if maybe it is not detecting the monitor in there, and has a "?" it isn't even seeing two monitors at all. Only one. Again though, both monitors(it stretches a picture or window across both screens, and if I minimize, it puts it into one screen) are working, and my graphics card is reading both.
I am at a loss and could really use some suggestions and help. Thanks in advance.
