I know this post is old, but it cannot be a "hardware" issue. I just did a windows 10 update and now my screens will not go "blank". Is there an update to this issue?
Solved! Go to Solution.
This just started happening today but my Windows 10 was updated a long time ago and I cannot revert back. I am the HR and Accounting Dept for my firm. We have employees that still work in the office so it is imperative that my host screen is blank. What is an alternative? I may have to look for another remote login site.
@Jenna1108 Is it possible to have someone at the host PC turn off the display while keeping the monitor plugged into the PC?
Has there been any movement with a fix for the screen blanking issue on the host computer? Solved only says will release an update soon...... that is from 8/21/2020
"I apologize for the screen blanking issues affecting some Windows 10 machines running the newest updates (V2004+). We noted a programming change with this new version that disallowed the mechanism previously used to overlay the display. We're working on a new solution for this scenario and I hope to have more information
@CCDC-1 We are actively working on a solution for this currently, and I hope to have more information in the coming weeks.
Ash - many office computers have been replaced with All-in-one pcs so the screen can not be powered off separately from the PC. can you possibly emulate a split screen where the host PC sees its desktop but the Virtual user works on a screen 2. Microsoft still allows for split screen and most office users will not have a 2nd physical screen.
