    hi there,

    I’ve got an asus z370 motherboard and a grx 2070 gpu. I’m trying to connect 3 monitors to this setup.

    One via DP cable from the monitor to GPU, one via hdmi-to-dvi and a last via just hdmi.

    I once had this setup working, when i first built the setup. But after a gpu driver update one of the monitors just stopped working.

    The issue is, if i have the DP connected and i plug the HDMI in, the DP stops working (says no signal), i can still see it on my display settings for windows 10 but it is greyed out.

    Is this a motherboard or gpu issue? Or am i using the wrong cables (im fairly certain i had it working with these cables once)

    GPU or video driver issue. If it was working and stopped, likely video drivers. Assuming the monitors or monitor resolution hasn't changed and you aren't exceeding the limits of the gpu.
