Yesterday I installed a second ASUS VG248QE monitor to my computer connected via displayport and now when I leave my computer idle and come back, it's completely unresponsive.
It won't power on until I disconnect both monitors from DVI and displayport respectively then I can reconnect them and all works well. Sometimes when it boots back up after this happening I get a power surge detection warning. I have my monitors, computer, ethernet hub, and a lamp plugged into an old power strip. Could this be causing this weird behavior with the computer, should I buy a newer power strip or connect the second monitor to an independent outlet?
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz, 3401 Mhz, 4 Core(s)
PSU: High Power HPG-600ST-F12S ATX 600W Switching Power Supply PSU 115-230V 50-60Hz
Is my GPU too weak to support these monitors? I have two ASUS VG248QE monitors one running 144hz on DVI other 60hz on displayport.
TLDR: My computer won't come back out of sleep with both monitors connected into DVI and displayport. Only after disconnecting displayport does the computer turn back on and I can reconnect it.
EDIT: I tested moving the second monitor to an independent outlet and I had the same issue trying to come back out of sleep. My computer will only come out of sleep if I disconnect the displayport.
