Shall appreciate a solution please!

I assume you rebooted the PC?

turn it on.

What kind of computer and what kind of port is it plugged into?

On a guess (because I've done the same recently), i will assume you have tried to plug a monitor into a free displayport socket with an adaptor cable and it hasnt worked? If this is the case, youmight need an Active adaptor.

Maybe provide the odd detail.

Is it a desktop? Which port is the working one plugged into. Which port is the non working one plugged into. Choices are HDMI , DisplayPort, DVI , VGA.

Spoon feeding us, I like it.

Oh well, that's my best suggestion busted. Maybe, like the others say, more details.
- Computer
- Graphics hardware
- OS
- Existing monitor
etc

Finally, I have found the solution for creating dual screens in Windows 10, by pressing Win key and P ! It works :)

several posts have asked for more details above.

You could have started with "i've plugged it in, now how do i turn it on?"
or even "i've plugged it in, but nothing happens!"

might have saved yourself 6 weeks without it.

Hmmm ? Wait longer than 10 seconds ?
