Remote utilities works fine on 2 desktop computers but I get a black screen on both MSI laptops.
What I find strange is that I can see the screens in the viewer.
I can also transfer files, I can check task manager but the screen is black...?
Thanks for your help.

Hi Conrad,
Everything failed for the MSI laptops.
Works fine on both desktop PC's.
What else should I try?
Am I the only one?

Hello Allik,

You should try uninstalling the Remote Utilities monitor driver. Perhaps, it was installed on your Hosts. To uninstall it, right click on the Host icon, select   Settings for Host -> Options -> Driver and click "Uninstall" right next to the monitor driver.

Here is a screenshot:

Let us know if this worked for you. Thanks.

I will uninstalling the Remote Utilities monitor driver and see if it changes.
