Troubleshoot: HDR Black Screen After Adjusting the Volume

In Windows 10, you can play HDR (High Dynamic Range) content on an HDR10-enabled built-in display or an external monitor (or TV) connected to your computer.

You’ll have to manually enable HDR on the screen and in the operating system, and you may run into several problems. read more
