I'm having an issue where my second monitor is saying "Frequency out of range". I'm on a laptop so normally this issue could be solved by just changing the resolution on windows 10. However on Windows 11 it's not allowing me to. When I connect my second monitor it's says "Frequency out of range" and the primary monitor is completely blacked out until I unplug the HDMI cable. When I unplug, it doesn't show the second monitor settings like "Extend these displays" or choosing monitor on primary. Any fixes?
