    Problem with dual monitors


    I just went from windows 7 to 8.1
    I have 2 monitors.
    My problem is, that when I start the computer and it boots into the desktop, one of the monitors does show the desktop , but the second one is blue . I then have to click on the blue screen to make it show the desktop.

    Is it possible to make windows show the desktop on both monitors when it starts, so i dont have to click on the blue screen to make it show the desktop?

    Sorry for my bad english.

    Monitors: ASUS SWIFT PG278Q
    All drivers up to date.

    Please see pictures for further clarification.

    When the computer starts up, one of the monitors stays blue.
