- Snip -

Looking at your first picture, Windows can't actually see the other display - this could point to either bad cable or bad port. Have you got another cable to test with? 

I will only ever answer to the best of my ability - there is absolutely no promises that I will be correct. Or helpful. At all.

So are you using an HDMI to VGA adaptor or...?

Currently, so that I can use my new monitor. I'm using the VGA

But I want to use the HDMI so my money won't go to waste buying an HDMI cable.?

Ah ok, unfortunately, without swapping the cable out, it'll be hard to troubleshoot whether it's the cable at fault...

 

Have you got another display with HDMI in that you can test plugging into?

If you're using the same HDMI cable then i guess it won;t be that causing the issue... Do you have anything else that outputs over HDMI to test the monitor with?
