Second monitor is detected but not displaying anything

Obligatory total newb. I have a second monitor connected to my laptop through a usb-C Display cable and when I go in the display settings, it detects a second monitor but when I click enable and apply, nothing happens (still in sleep). I recently set up a live usb of the same distro, and when I start that it detects and drives the second monitor with no issue. Any help figuring this out is greatly appreciated.

So I figured out the issue. I found out I needed to install optimus-manager and change from integrated graphics to running the nvidia gpu. Leaving this up in case someone has this in the future. Here is a link to the readme: optimus-manager/ at master · Askannz/optimus-manager · GitHub
