I am having a rather weird problem with my desktop and any advice would be appreciated.
I set up my desktop last year and it has been working perfectly fine for the last year, however for the last month my HDMI port has stopped working. I started using my display port which works perfectly fine, but every time I restart or switch on my computer I need to restart a minimum of 3 times before the display port gets a signal from the desktop. Once it does the display is perfectly fine and doesn't glitch or have any scaling issues. 
 The problem started after I moved the desktop from my home to my studio, but i have done it multiple times over the last year and it has never had such a problem. 
I have tried multiple monitors and hdmi cables, but my laptop connects perfectly well with them; not my desktop.

    Sounds like the hdmi output on your card is toast since the hdmi cables work fine with your laptop. Is your display port cable vesa certified?

    • Blow the HDMI port out with compressed air
    • Warranty?
    • Alternatively if the solder joints are cracked and you're not willing to pay EVGA for a OoWR, you could have a friend or electronics shop re-flow the solder on the HDMI port or replace it completely (this is assuming the chip controlling it is still good).

    See if removing and reinstalling the card helps.
    I never use hdmi and display ports have always been hit and miss
    Most reliable is dvi port if it has any issues rma but then again if the issue is not resolved with r&r then rma is best.
    Especially if it acts the same using a different monitor and using the dvi port.

    There is a firmware update from Nvidia for your Displayport - that may fix the stuttering issue and restarts you have to do
    Good Luck!
