Ultrawide monitor regular black screen with HP Envy 13


I’m getting regular black outs on my Acer Nitro EI491CRP Ultrawide Monitor in combination with my with HP Envy 13. This has only started happening recently after three weeks of everything working fine. No new cables have been changed during this period.

I have followed your previous advice in another ticket of uninstalling DisplayLink, running the cleaner programme and installing the latest graphics drivers.

Kind regards,
