Primary monitor regularly disabled

I have a triple monitor setup and recently swapped one of the monitors in my setup to a new higher resolution and refresh rate one, and I rearranged the existing one so the new one is in the center, and since then I have been experiencing some issues with my display configuration. I was able to configure and arrange the monitors in the display settings exactly as expected, I set it to the primary display and arranged the monitors to match the physical arrangement of the monitors, however for the last few days since the upgrade the new monitor keeps getting a no signal message and goes into sleep mode on a regular basis, usually after the OS locks due to inactivity but sometimes while I am actively using the system. If I reopen the display settings configuration section of system settings I can still select the center monitor, which is powered off, but the checkmarks next to enabled and primary are unchecked. Checking the enabled and primary boxes will turn the new monitor back on, however it gets added into the arrangement as the rightmost monitor so I have to redo my monitor arrangement as well. I did a bit of searching online but couldn't find anyone with a solution to a similar problem. Is there a way to fix this?

Have you tried changing the cable?

I would be curious to see if you notice any different behavior out of the monitor if you connect Monitor-1 with the HDMI cable from Monitor-3, and connect Monitor-3 with the DP. I'm not saying you'd have to leave it like that--just change it for the sake of troubleshooting.

I swapped the cables between monitors one and 3, although the displayport input on monitor 3 is dead as far as I can tell, I have tested it with multiple cables and it doesn't detect any cable connected on the displayport cable when one is plugged in. My graphics card only has one HDMI port though, so I am down to 2 monitors as it is. I will try this for a day or two and if I don't have issues with screens being shut off I guess I will need to get a displayport to HDMI adapter

Monitor 2 has come back from the future :rofl:

On topic, check onboard settings of the monitor in problem, for power saving settings. Disable any DPMS (power saving), to test for any behavior change.

I've had this issue as well since the last major update to KDE. I'm wondering if it has to do with KScreen or KWin, but in any case, I'm also running Garuda Linux with zen kernel and KDE Plasma.

Monitor displays fine until login, then power cycles after entering the password. I've been able to get it on again with nvidia-settings (you'll need to run as sudo to save config to X). My DP monitor shows up as "disabled". First enable it and leave the HDMI monitor as primary, and Apply. I've tried marking as primary first, but settings revert. Then, after the monitor kicks on, mark as Primary and Apply again. Save configuration to X. You may need to reapply additional configs like your monitor refresh rate, and G-Sync if you're using it, as sometimes these settings are disabled. I've been able to reliably get my monitor back up and running in this admittedly roundabout way. One caveat: if you walk away long enough that the monitor goes to sleep, the monitor is disabled again, and you need to do the whole thing over again.

I've posted about this on KDE forums as well, but I'm unsure if this is unique to Garuda based on the lack of search results.

I see monitor 1 is using a 2560x1440 resolution. You need to make sure all cabling and adapters are rated for resolutions above the 1080p standard. Older or cheaper cables and adapters will likely be only 1080p capable. Cheap DP to HDMI adapters from Amazon are usually only 1080p. Be sure any cabling or adapters you buy are rated for 4K, (8K is better to be future proof). Check all the online reviews if buying from online from retailers like Amazon, as many of their cheaper cables/adapters don't actually meet the standards the manufaturers claim. That is why buying 8K is better, because you can at least be pretty sure it should at least be 4K rated to meet future requirements.
