    I installed this tonight, re-booted, and my 2nd monitor was no longer recognized. I re-installed the Nvidia driver (after using DDU), still no lock. Tried changing cables & even from Display Port to HDMI - no change.

    Ran sfc /scannow - no issues; rean dskchk /f - no issues.

    It also wiped out ALL of my previous Restore Points. :-(

    I'm going to try uninstalling the update (oh, and yes, I also get the common error with that Jan Sec Update)

    Nope, still no luck :-( Also tried "resetting" the monitor by unplugging it and holding down the power button for 60+ seconds :-(

    Just can see that it "died" 100% with a simple reboot - it's been rock-solid.

    Any ideas?

    Disconnect the first monitor. Troubleshoot as if there is only one monitor (the second one) to see if it is alive. Connect it to another computer or device.

    Yeah, been doing that. Called Asus, they're having me try a diff power cable. It's like the monitor just went into perm power savings - blue power button comes on, but no image on the screen, just black, no logo, nothing (not even the corner light bleed). :-( Have never seen a monitor just "go dead" like this - fine one minute, reboot, and then nothing.
