This can’t be real right? I’ve even added a monitor to it and kept the covers on the other ports since I’ve had it.
Let me back up.
I have a 970, and having just gotten a Valve Index found out that 2/3 of the display port ports aren’t working, and probably the HDMI too. If I want to VR I have to disconnect my main monitor and put the headset in that exact port. When I plug the VR or monitor into another port it seems to recognize something’s there but can’t display to it. Even display settings shows 2 monitors if it’s in another port, I can move my mouse through it but it didn’t take the desktop icons back from the second monitor. I have gone through a clean install of my display driver with DDU and no dice.
I see no reason this is actually real. Is there some kind of deep sleep for GPU ports that aren’t used? Something I can do in my UEFI? I just updated the driver when I got this VR could that have done something? Do they hate me for not installing GeForce Experience?
I have to be stupid on this, this is just too much of a weird thing to happen.
