    After last nights Windows update 2nd monitor isn't recognized

    Hello all,

    The title pretty much says it all. Windows 8, two ACER flat screen monitors, HP pc, have been running fine. I went to the control panel and although both monitors are on and working the 2nd is not detected. Clicking on "detect" a small window says "another display not detected".
    The display on the second monitor as I say is on but the mouse pointer will not move onto the 2nd monitor and my desktop icons that were there are now on my 1st monitor. I tried to update the graphics card software and monitor software as well, both are up to date.
    I've tried to contact Microsoft Support but I suppose that there was a mass problem with the update because I can't get thru either online or on the phone.
    I tried to restore the computer to its last restore point but that did not help.

    Can anyone suggest a fix?

    Many thanks

    Start removing the updates one at a time to see which caused your problem.
