I have a new ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71.
I added a USB 3.0 monitor - AOC E1659Fwu. It worked fine.
I updated to Windows 10 and now it does not work.
I deleted DisplayLink, updated the Nvidia driver, reinstalled updated DisplayLnk.
Windows 10 knows I have 2 monitors, and thinks my screen is extended,
but nothing shows up on the 2nd monitor. (Except off black, it isn't "dead'.)
What should I try next?

Switch back to Windows 8.1. Windows 10 is bug ridden with loads of driver issues at the moment, hence the free upgrade :P

It's a USB monitor, but are you using the drivers that were provided with the monitor, or are you letting it fetch them automatically from Windows Update?

Depending on the answer, try the opposite suggestion.
(I have an ancient DisplayLink USB HDMI adapter, and it works fine in Windows 10 with the WIndows Update driver on the same laptop)

Shoot me a PM if you would like me to help you do some direct debugging sometime.
