    Monitor I'm trying to connect to is ACER V196HQL

    VGA system used to work until one day it just didn't anymore. Says no signal. Just a black screen. Can't extend/show desktop only on 2, no response. Only if i switch it on/off i get the acer logo and after that no signal. If i plug the cable in, generic NON-pnp appears under monitors in device manager and if i pull it off, it dissapears, as it should, so i have no idea what's the problem.

    Here's what I've done so far.

    - tried with another VGA and another monitor, still doesn't connect to 2nd screen

    - reinstalled all graphics drivers

    - switched everything on and off a hundred times

    - reinstalled my windows 7

    All drivers should be up to date, at least according to driverbooster, drivereasy etc programs.
