Legion Y720 / Nvidia GPU won't run on Main Display after 2nd Display was installed (hdmi)

2019-02-14, 11:12 AM



i found a myriad of answers to this issue but none of the recommendations had

any effect, including uninstalling the Nvidia GPU.


As stated the GTX1060 stopped running for anything i do on my main display.

I've certainly added all my games manually to the Nvidia list, no effect. 

I did check the dxdiag while playing a game i had in the list, so i am sure of it.

I did remove the 2nd screen, got Windows to forget it was there, still no effect

after re-installing Nvidia GPU.


I tried uninstalling from Safe mode, but Safe Mode isn't working either. Also there i

googled, found the Shift-Restart idea, but that doesn't let me boot in safe mode, 

only gives Option for restoration.


As i understand it the problem should be with the registry, but i don't really dare 

to fiddle with that, i am no expert. Is there any way short of a factory reset to resolve this?


Hope someone has an idea, forgive my bad english
