Failed units:

i installed garuda on my machine just today. It was working fine for a little bit, but then i left the computer for a few minutes and came back to see that one of my monitors wasn't working. I tried logging out and logging in to an X11 session, no dice. I checked on my windows partition to confirm that my monitor hadn't died or something, but it worked fine. So probably not a hardware issue. I tried unplugging both of my monitors and plugging them back in, trying different display ports on the gpu, nothing. When i go to my display settings it keeps refreshing and saying on output has been removed and added, but it never detects the second monitor.

According to xrandr theres only one monitor connected:

having looked through the forums it seems that multiple other users have had a very similar issue occur recently, but no solutions yet.

edit: i forgot to mention, but the second monitor turns on and works on the login manager, but as soon as i log in with either X11 or Wayland it shuts back off

Ok, I feel a little bit silly right now, but I figured out what happened.

somehow, the second monitor got disabled in the settings, and i just had to click the "device" drop down in display settings, click my second monitor, and re-enable it. I still have no idea how the monitor got disabled in the first place since I literally wasn't using the computer when it happened, but it seems fine now. Hopefully.

I was hoping selfishly that this was the same issue I've been experiencing. It's definitely not... Glad you got it solved!
