    so I'm using an Nvidia 1050 ti graphics card and it only has two display ports on it 1 is HDMI and 1 is DVI I have one monitor plugged into HDMI which works just fine but DVI won't work I tried restarting my pc with the DVI plugged in and it came on until the login screen it went back off also I've tried going into settings and detecting another monitor but nothing I also went into properties to check for new drivers and everything was up to date I even tried rolling back my drivers still nothing I'm not sure what to do now do i need to get a DVI to HDMI adapter or what else could i do to fix this?

    I'm not sure if I'm permitted to interject. I'm not a moderator, but I had the same issue when I attempted to use a TV as a second monitor. Is that what you're doing? IF so, you will need a converter. That's what did the trick for me.
