Second monitor not detected after Windows upgrade despite driver update

On Thursday night, my HP Envy did an upgrade and shut down. When I turned it on Friday morning, the second monitor, which is connected via HDMI, was no longer detected, even though have it selected on Extend mode.  My IT department made sure the driver was updated but even then could not get it to work.  They suggested I use a Plugable USB 3.0, which I connected today but it also does not detect the monitor (although it works fine - using it for keyboard and mouse).  I have uninstalled the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600 and re-installed it, ensured it was updated, etc.,  but nothing is working.  The monitor is in working condition (and turned on) and the HDMI cables are fine (have used two different ones).  Any ideas?

Hello MXM,

Thank you for posting on the Intel® communities.  

I was checking your post and I understand that your computer is no longer detecting the second monitor after an upgrade.

To better assist you, please provide the following information:

  • Please provide the model of your computer.
  • What is the driver that is currently installed?
  • What kind of update did you perform? Is this an OS update?
  • What is your Operating System version?


If you prefer, please run the following tool and attach the reports generated.  This will gather the information requested above.


Intel® System Support Utility (Intel® SSU) Download link 

  

1.       Open the application and click on "Scan" to see the system and device information. 

2.      By default, Intel® SSU will take you to the "Summary View".   

3.       Click on the menu where it says "Summary" to change to "Detailed View".   

4.       To save your scan, click on "Next", then "Save".

Thank you for your response, Esteban. I ended up resetting the laptop and that took care of the issue.
