HP Envy 17t-j000 w/ 740M - Triple monitor setup questions

Q: HP Envy 17t-j000 w/ 740M - Triple monitor setup questions

Hey guys,

I'm needing some information that is extremely hard to come by.

The 740m in the HP Envy 17t-j000, does anyone know, or does anyone know WHERE to look (Google failed me, or I failed Google!) to find out whether it needs ACTIVE displayport -> HDMI adapters?

I question this because I know the 57xx series from ATI required active. The card only supported 1 RAMDAC signal (or something?) and the Nvidia's tech seems different. According to HP support, passive will work fine. I need to have the adapters ordered ASAP, but I do not want to order the incorrect ones.

Any assistance is appreciated.

A:Questions related to Building A "Triple Monitor Setup"?

1) Just your GPU unless you have something like a 500w PSU
2) Asus gets my vote every day of the week
3) Ms refers to the response time in terms of milliseconds. The lower the number the better.
4) Going higher than 1080p may cause you to run into the limitations of the GPU as it has to render 3 images at 1920x1080 for all intensive purposes thats the best part of 6k! But a 780ti 4gb will handle this fine, a 3gb version may struggle on the more demanding titles that are very Vram intensive.

This one has me stumped hoping someone can lend a hand The rig in question is up to date in my system specs I currently run a triple monitor setup all the monitors were purchased at the same time and are the following model Asus VS H-P -Inch LED Monitor The three monitors are all connected to XFX DD Radeon HD X Cross-fired with an identical OEM Model setup. triple Color anomoly of monitor single monitor on GPU All three are connected to a single card which was tested out of cross-fire beforehand and each card Color anomoly on single monitor of triple monitor setup. was tested separately The monitors Color anomoly on single monitor of triple monitor setup. are arranged as shown below -DVI -Display port to DVI active adapter -DVI With monitor one being the far left monitor two the center display and monitor three the far right display The best way to describe the issue There seems to be a single blue pixel on display that stays in the same place but this pixel does not show up when the color displayed is solid white solid black or solid red To rule out the usual suspects -All cables have been checked with new replacements on two different rigs -Both cards have been tested and work properly on two different rigs -The cards are NOT overclocked -The display that shows the pixel has been tested as well the pixel does not appear on my test rig -Disabling eyefinity does not resolve the issue -Removing the second card does not resolve the issue My question What am I seeing A stuck pixel Artifacting Could the active adapter be causing the issue If it turns out to be a stuck pixel can it be fixed Or is this a dead pixel that will require an RMA Any help would be greatly appreciated

A:Color anomoly on single monitor of triple monitor setup.

Sounded like a stuck pixel until you mentioned it doesn't show itself in solid black. It's possible it still could be though, have you tried any of the remedies?

So the title explains most of my problem, ive connected 3 monitors to my computer but it detects all 3 as one very large monitor, im not sure if this is a setting that i just cannot find and change or if it is within the detection, as is im using the nvidia control panel to set a custom resolution in order to make the monitors display what they should, but this leaves me with only the option of using them as if they were in span mode, i am not able to use them as three seperate monitors

my specs are as follows:
Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit
Amd FX-8150 at 3.6ghz
32768mb GSkill ram
Galaxy MDT GeForce GTX 580
3x LG Flatron e2241 monitors

if any more information is required i will be happy to provide it, thank you in advance.

Were you expecting to run 3 different programs and have one on each screen? If so, what were you going to do about the keyboard? Were you wanting to view 3 different photographs at one time? Telling us why you connected 3 monitors would be a help.

Whats up guys so I have a laptop and have bought 3 ben q monitors and I want to do a triple monitor gaming setup but I don't have a external gpu. With the 3 monitors I bought an hdmi splitter so i can get picture to all three monitors but i have no idea how to extend the display across all three monitors and i am running windows 8 if you know anything at all please let me know and thank you

A:Triple monitor setup

As far as I'm aware, an HDMI splitter will allow the same image to be sent to multiple monitors, not send 3 different images to 3 monitors.

I currently have two 24 inchers as dual screen (which i love to brag about ) and i want to add a third one. However my video card has only 1 vga and 1 dvi output.

Are there special video cards that can handle 3 screens on 1920*1200? Or do i need more video cards?


A:Triple monitor setup - How?

More video cards, well, one more though there are or were some specialized cards from Matrox I think that had even more output ports for additional monitors.

Now I see they have something called the TripleHead to Go which is a breakout box to control three monitors but I don't know if it supports 1920x1200.

First I want to thank those who responded to my previous questions about PCI video cards and dual monitors Second I ve only had dual monitors for a little over a day now and I am ready for a third monitor already How would that work though Triple Monitor Setup Here is what I have ATI Radeon PCI with VGA and DVI output Currently I have one Dell FPT hooked up to each connection and my display is spread across both monitors One annoyance is that every centered window that pops up shows up half on each screen I believe monitors with a stretched display would eliminate that problem so Triple Monitor Setup I would like to add a rd Dell FPT to my system The centered windows would pop up on the middle monitor correct For that and other greedy reasons I think I want a rd now How would I hook up the rd monitor though I believe I had to turn off my internal AGP to get this PCI video card dual monitor set up to work properly so I can t use that connection Would you use something like a y-cable off of the DVI connection So you have a VGA running to monitor one and a DVI split to run Triple Monitor Setup to monitors and Would that still work with Triple Monitor Setup a stretched display Thanks in advance nbsp

A:Triple Monitor Setup

You wouldn't split the DVI signal (except with special cards I've only seen on IBM machines) to display on two monitors. Instead, and probably easiest, you would put another PCI card in your machine giving you support for 3 or 4 monitors if you please.

I'm in the market for a new Video card, have an extra LCD monitor sitting around in addition to the 2 new ones I just picked up. Am looking to pick up the 512MB GeForce 7900 GTX.

Does anyone know of a quick-and-easy (and preferrably inexpensive) solution to setup Triple Monitors? I've seen the Matrox adapter, but wasn't altogether sure I needed to spend $300 on something to acheive it.

I'm a web designer and gamer, so would be my dream setup to have that much screen area.

Hi there. It may be because there are 3 DVI ports on the one card but Win 7 does not recognise all 3 monitors, only 2.

On the contrary the Nvidia control panel recognises all 3 monitors and I am able to configure all 3 screens with a res of 5760 / 1080. All is fine until I reboot and then nothing. All monitors blank. I can only assume that it's because of a conflict with the Nvidia driver (latest) and windows.

My question is, is it possible to force windows to recognise all 3 monitors? I think then my problems will be over.

A:Having issues w/ Triple Monitor Setup (DisplayPort issue?)

I run a triple monitor setup on my desktop PC. 2 DVI and one HDMI on my GT 640. The one using HDMI goes as follows Mini HDMI on video card to normal HDMI to HDMI to DVI adapter. What I notice is regardless of which monitor is set as primary my BIOS POST screen and the initial Windows Boot screen always shows on the same monitor on one of the DVI ports. The video card determines what monitor the POST screen shows on. For me it depends on how many monitors I have plugged in and what ports they use. I have never seen it where it didn't show. The logon screen then shows on my Primary monitor. I don't use sleep or hibernate so I can't help you with that. Why you don't see your POST screen I don't know, I have seen other people report the same thing though. I don't remember if they found out why though.

Had the same problem... figured it out... it was not a Sata Contorller driver issue at all. 1. Turned off Secure Boot, & Enabled Legacy.2. Turn USB 3.0 BIOS setting to act as AUTO so that OS installations treat USB ports as 2.0 Compatable3.

Hello - I am experiencing the same issue any many other users with the screen hinge breaking the laptop enclosure. This sounds like a product defect that should have warranted a recall by HP. The enclosure is broken on the left side and there is now a broken piece in the enclosure that is a risk to damage the fan. I purchased the laptop November 13, 2013 and the enclosure recently broke during normal usage. Is HP still covering repair of the issue at no cost? I also have a 3 yr warranty through SquareTrade (via Amazon), but I am not sure what avenue to take to get coverage for the repair. Are there any current class action suits regarding this issue?  I have my own business and this is my work laptop, so the matter is urgent. Thank you.

I have had the same situation again actually. It did come off whilst it was in warranty and HP fixed it somehow. Now, again it has come off from the same place. Not sure how to fix it? What all does it need to be fixed? I understood from different sources that I need back cover and some sort of front panel. Please guide me. Thanks.

Sounds like you've set it up correctly.

If you want the icons on the 2nd screen, simply drag and drop them there.

A lot of apps will always open on the 'main' display initially, but if you open your document, place it on the second screen and then minimize and maximize it a few times, it should 'remember' to open on the second display next time.

I recently bought an all-in-one computer (about 6 months ago) and since then the screen has slowly gone to crap. It was fine the first couple months but over time lines started to appear and eventually (now) I can barely see anything. I have to wait 30 mins for the colors covering my screen to disappear, and even after that I can only be on it for about an hour before they reappear and inhibit me from seeing anything again ( also there are white lines going horizontally across my screen that never go away). So the question is, should I waste money on a USB graphics adapter and connect it to another monitor? I'm hoping that I can just move everything from this current computer desktop and place it on the other monitor and just use this (the messed up screen one) as a kind of "tower"... would that even work?

First question, can I even do this and would it require anything else than what I listed?

Second question, how do i switch using the monitors as in... will i need another mouse or how do i switch controlling with my mouse. If i'm playing a game on one monitor and then have my desktop on the other monitor how will i swap from one to another using my mouse?

I want to install from USB. Is it possible to run the setup and install within Windows?
Or do i have to boot from a DVD?
Also, what will happen to my bootloader? I assume that grub will take over the Windows loader which is fine whilst i use Ubuntu?
What happens when i want to uninstall Ubuntu? Does the Windows loader just kick back into effect or would i have to reinstall the loader?

Sorry for the plethora of questions. Just want to be sure of what i'm doing

A:Triple Boot Questions

No, you will need to run Setup from the live CD. GRUB will take over the boot loader if you let it, but there are ways around it. When you want to uninstall Ubuntu, unless you have worked around the takeover, you will need to repair your Windows installations from the repair disk.

A:Some questions about triple booting 7/Vista/XP

It is standard practice to load operating systems in chronological order so installing vista last may cause the other operating systems to cease booting.

The result will depend on where the actual boot files are currently held - can you post a screenshot of your current configuration, to enable us to see exactly what may need to be altered

I have a dual boot 7 with 32bit and 64bit, and unknowingly installed the 32 first and 64 thereafter (on 2 partitions of SSD). I realise now that I want to delete 32bit and cannot format this partition.

I ask because I have a Win 10 partition on my HDD that I eventually want to clone to the SSD and thereafter only have 2 partitions with 64bit 7 & 10, and format the space left on the HDD as a backup location.

Attached are screenshots from disk management.

Can anybody help please?

A:Moving and deleting OS on triple-boot setup

You cannot delete D because it`s the Active partition and has the system files on it.

And if you wiped out D you wouldn`t be able to boot from C because it`s on an extended partition, it must be a primary partition, set Active and contain the system files.

You`d have to wipe out C and D in order to reinstall W7 64 bit, and I`m not sure you can do that as C and H are both part of an extended partition.

Why is there a gap between C and H, please post an unedited shot of Disk Management.

A:Installation order of OS's in triple boot setup...

Well, I can answer one of your questions. It does make a difference in the order you load the different operating systems. It has to do with the boot loader that comes with the system. For example, Win2k's boot loader will recognize other OS's already installed and automatically add reference to them in the Master Boot Record of your hard drive. It wll also set up a boot menu for you so you can choose. Not all OS's provide that capability and will rewrite the MBR, wiping out any references to other OS's.

This is a Windows forum. We pioneered many of the fixes for Win7, which may not apply here since you are asking about GRUB.

In a typical XP-Win7 Dual boot where Win7 is installed second the Win7 installer only updates the boot files on XP to boot Win7. Then to add Linux what works best is here: Dual boot Ubuntu-Win7

Normally to re-establish a failed Windows boot menu what works best is to Mark Win7 Partition Active then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times. This moves the System flag and boot files to Win7 or its' System Reserved partition so the more modern OS is booting the system, and the multi-faceted repair checks and fixes many other parameters.

You can then install EasyBCD to add XP to a Dual Boot. EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required)

However since you're relying on GRUB it may require a Linux solution and not Windows, unless you want to add the Linux distro per Dual boot Ubuntu-Win7.

Another method is here to Dual Boot - Windows 7 and Linux - Windows 7 Forums whose author may be able to help you better if contacted through the comments section.

I'm new here so hi everyone I'd really appreciate some advice on setting up multiple monitors under W and this seems the best place to ask Sorry for the long post I'm currently running a dual monitor setup under windows home premium -bit using a Radeon HD card PCI-E I got hold of a third monitor so I potentially have a primary quot widescreen DVI monitor x plus matching quot VGA side monitors x and was wondering what the best approach to setting it up would be I should stress that this is NOT to achieve any triple-monitor triple Best solution? monitor gaming that just isn't realistic on my budget although I would hope for the best possible gaming performance on just the primary monitor I could get with my hardware There would be nothing more taxing on the secondary monitors than maybe watching live tv from my standard-def pci tv card or watching a DVD or video Best triple monitor solution? file through media player I would hope aero stuff would work across all three From reading older posts here and on other forums Best triple monitor solution? there seem to be approaches open to me that may work All would cost roughly the same here in the UK around ish Install a PCI graphics card to run the third monitor Only decent one I can find readily available here is the GeForce GS for around Would mean mixing ATI and Nvidia display drivers Replace the Mb Radeon HD with a Gb Radeon passive DisplayPort-VGA adaptor to run all from the same PCI-E card Overall cost would be somewhere around - if I also sold the HD on ebay Replace my current motherboard and use my current HD card along with an onboard HD chipset in 'ATI SurroundView' Sell the old motherboard Overall cost - So not much difference in cost so the performance compatibility problems are of more concern Any ideas anyone

A:Best triple monitor solution?

My roommate just went the three-monitor route and found it simplest to just add a 5770 to the 4870 she already had. By the time you track down Display Port adapters and whatnot it turned out to be cheaper, too. It was also a lot easier than swapping out a motherboard would have been. There is the added benefit of being to upgrade one video card at a time if there is ever a need for it.

I know some people run mixed drivers (ATi/nVidia) with no problem, but I think that doing that doubles (or maybe squares) your chances of trouble.

A:Triple Monitor Q&A - USB to VGA solutions?

I run triple monitors on my desktop PC but they all run off of my dedicated Video card. On my laptop I run dual displays with the second one being a USB 3 display. It uses DisplayLink software. This is the one I have, May not be the exact same model but looks identical to the one I have. I've watched videos on it and didn't notice any lag. I don't game on my laptop anyway. I went this route because its nice and compact and will fit it my laptop bag with my laptop. It's the same size as a 15 inch tablet only its a monitor. Just the one cable for power and video. I have no experience with the adapters you posted, sorry.

Hello there, first of all. you need to fill your system specs with your actual computer specs, not your email.. hehe.

Download Speccy - System Information - Free Download and post a screen shot of the summary for us to see the components in your PC.

Additionally, a single Nvidia card can't handle 3 monitors at the same time. but in SLI they're capable.

Hi!I daisy chained three monitors (Dell 1920x1080) to the Display Port on the computer. However, I can only get the desktop to display on two of them (in both extended and duplicate modes). And it's on any two of the three. I cannot get all three to work at the same time. It sees all three but after enabling any two it won't allow me to enable the third. The only time all three display something (Windows 7 startup screen on all three) at the same time is before computer boots to the login screen. According to information I found I should be able to use three monitors with this computer. What am I missing? BTW, I installed the latest updates, drivers and BIOS. Here is some info about the computer: Model: M73 TinyOS: Windows 7 x64CPU: i3-4130T with HD4400 GraphicsRAM: 8 GB

Did you find information that says 3 monitors on the same DP are supported?

Having watched some youtube videos of Battlefield and DiRT on 3 screens, I think I am sold on the idea of triple monitor gaming.

I'm looking to get IPS monitors with low input lag, low response times and relatively thin bezel. I'm also looking to get more into photo editing hence the IPS route. The Dell U2312HM seems to satisfy those criteria, does anyone have experience with this monitor?

Price isn't really the biggest concern, just want a great setup to last a long time. I have no interest in 3D gaming (tried some PS3 games on my 3D TV, not impressed) so don't have use for a 120Hz monitor. Also it's not like I could afford a rig which would run BF3 at 5760x1080 and 120fps anyway...

A:Triple monitor gaming suggestions?

first of all it would help if you gave us your complete system specs.
gaming on 3 monitors will need a pretty powerful graphics card.

Hello Forum Although I have solved the issue I thought to post it here Perhaps there is a better way around the issue I upgraded my video card to an AMD FirePro w I now have Samsung SyncMaster B monitors attached running native x Displaying wide wallpaper x the problem I encountered was the wallpaper would not display correctly left to right across Issue Triple Monitor Wallpaper the displays I moved monitors I switched cables I set the order for the monitors in Win resolution window Problem is I want the center monitor to Triple Monitor Wallpaper Issue be the primary display That I can do Makes no difference if the monitors are left to right Cursor moves properly across Triple Monitor Wallpaper Issue all three Yes the monitors have to match the sequence spec in the resolution screen The problem is the left image of the wallpaper image always displays on the selected primary monitor no matter where it is in relation to the other two By having it in the center I could never get the wallpaper display in correct order Very disturbing until I finally figured it out Solution was to write a program to modify the wallpaper bitmap file by swapping the x image chucks around so as to then display correctly as wallpaper Oh well Triple Monitor Wallpaper Issue it works Looks good too just thought I would pass this information along Stan

Soo I currently run dual monitors. I have an Acer S201HL and a generic Sansui TV. I recently hooked up an old Acer monitor hoping triple monitors would work. Now I have a Radeon HD 6670 graphics card and I use it to hook up my first two monitors. I have an eclipse see2 uv150 external video card hooked up to my old Acer and it displays picture. Except its currently on the default resolution. So I went to Screen Resolution and it only appears to recognize my first two monitors. When I click 'Detect', nothing happens. I want to see all 3 monitors on the display panel. Quick fix?

A:Slight Triple Monitor Issue!

Any devices connected to the Eclipse are controlled via the Eclipse app, not Windows. At least from what I can see in the User Manual.

First off I don't even like Metro, but I want to like it.
With three monitors > (The black lines is where my bezel is)
A lot of the tiles are where the bezels of my monitors are, so it looks really bad.
Is there any way to create 3 "groups" that are restricted from being in certain areas?

A:Windows 8 - Triple Monitor Issue

If you hit the "-" button way over on the lower left on your far left monitor, it will shrink the Tiles area, then you can move the groups around and name them. That might give you a start. But you have to first arrange each group how you want them. Then when you press "-" you can move them to the monitor you want.

I hate Metro too, I don't WANT to like it heh. But I like what you got going there.

I have a laptop with a non-touch screen and I am running W bit Enterprise When I am docked I leave the laptop lid open and it is my primary monitor x I have an external Dell inch monitor to the right x and I just added a Liliput inch USB monitor x in between both of them My intention was to run the desktop on all three monitors not run metro apps on any Weirdness Window Monitor Triple 8.1 of them I wanted to have my Lync client on the small USB monitor When I first plugged in the USB monitor it worked perfectly Then I rebooted and the small USB monitor would only show as solid blue after that The mouse showed on it and Window 8.1 Triple Monitor Weirdness I could drag windows across it The windows did not show while Window 8.1 Triple Monitor Weirdness I was dragging them it only showed solid blue but the mouse showed so I knew where I was However the spacing was correct and Windows definitely knew the window was there on that monitor Eventually I realized I could Window 8.1 Triple Monitor Weirdness click Maximize while a window was centered on the small monitor but the maximize button was visible on the other monitor and the window would disappear The window did in fact maximize on the little monitor but windows would not show it If I hovered over the task bar icon for the window that was maximized on the little monitor and then hovered over the little application preview window THEN I could see the window maximized on the little monitor However when I moved the mouse away from the preview the little monitor went back to solid blue Clicking on the preview did nothing Right clicking on the preview and choosing restore would enable me to get back control of my window If I click anywhere on the little monitor I get the W start screen tiles If I move to the corners of the little monitor I get the charms and all that stuff works fine If I click on the desktop tile it doesn't work I only get the solid blue Note If I put the tiles on a different monitor then I can run metro apps or the desktop on the other monitors just fine After googling around I found all those pages about people changing their registry key Display DownScalingSupported from a to a I tried it and it worked But then I undocked later that day When I docked again the problem was back I double checked my registry settings and they were all still set to --- My theory It doesn't seem to be a driver issue because the monitor works and the Windows tiles will display on it I think it's because Windows x wants a minimum resolution for metro apps and my inch Lilyput USB monitor doesn t meet this minimum Since the desktop is really just an app in Windows x this minimum resolution requirement is getting applied to my desktop despite the fact that Microsoft intention was really about guaranteeing a minimum resolution for metro apps --- Any suggestions Screenshot of dragging Screenshot of maximized Screenshot of preview Screenshot of tiles

A:Window 8.1 Triple Monitor Weirdness

i would say its because the minmum resolution thing as well 1366x768 is the lowest to have metro apps working right and 1024x768 is the minimum for win 8 in general to function. you could try looking in your laptop graphic settings though and see if your scaling is setup funny in that? what model is your laptop?

Sorry if started this in the wrong category but I am needing to setup 3 monitors to my desktop for work purposes. My motherboard is a gigabyte h55m-s2h it has a vga port dvi port and hdmi port. I have a monitor plugged into each port but the monitor that is plugged into the dvi port is not seen and the monitor it self displays "no signal" when powered on. In windows screen resolution it shows my monitors that are connected to my hdmi port and my vga port. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

The problem is that the Graphics card on the chip does not support 3 Monitor outputs which is why you cannot do that. You will need an add on GPU to do so on this machine.

I recently upgraded my Graphics Card to a Radeon HD 5450 with Triple monitor support,
it has 3 outputs 1-DVI ,,1-VGA,, 1-Display port hooked up to 3 monitors, 2 samsung 19" wide screens and a I-INC 25" widescreen... Currently i have the 25" in the middle with a 19" on either side,, The Problem is when i go to extend the desktop in the Appearance box, and click apply i get a error ( Unable to save Display settings ) it will let me use that monitor i couldn't extend only if i disable another display first (IE: my main monitor) all the drivers for monitors and card is up to date,,

25" plugged in with a Display Port to HDMI adapter
19" plugged in with a Standard VGA cable
19" plugged in with a DVI cable

AND I'm about to pull my hair out on this, any input would be greatly Appreciated.

A:HD5450 Triple Monitor Support Problem

What I would do first is clear out the multiple-monitor setting by switching to just one monitor, restarting that way, and re-apply the desktop extension.

When you click "Detect" does it give you all three screens to work with, at least?

I have just finished moving my OS from a 3TB hard drive to an SSD. I now have 2 matching drives that I would like to set up as a RAID array. A couple of questions:

1. Do I need to backup the data that will be on the RAID before setting it up and then move it back once it has been setup?

2. Do I format them before I go into the RAID setup utility or does that utility do it for me?

3. Will the RAID just appear as a single drive letter on my system?

4. Evidently I have the choice between RAID0 (for performance) and RAID1 (for redundancy). I hhave an extensive back up scheme in place so is there any reason not to use RAID0?

I know that I enable the RAID in the BIOS and then there is a place in the boot sequence to get into the RAID setup.

A:RAID Setup - Alienware - A few setup questions?

What are you hoping to get out of a RAID0 setup? If you have User data on the hard drive, such as movies, music, documents, pics, etc....there is no need for RAID0. Hard drives are more than fast enough for that kind of data.

I am building a new computer and I am looking to buy the XFX Radeon HD 7770 R7770.

I have got 3 monitors (two Acer 193w 1440 x 900 and one Samsung Syncmaster 933 1366 x 768) which I am planning to mount onto a bracket and play games using a triple monitor setup.

Is it possible to plug 3 monitors into this graphics card using two DVI's and one HDMI?

And is it possible to play games like Burnout Paradise, GTA IV and Source games (Valve games) using this graphics card?

Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!

I don't know what it is, but it's not the monitor or the graphics card that is faulty.
The monitor doesn't just display these grains, it updates them. Most of them are flashing constantly.
The GPU is fine because the 2nd monitor is also put on that card and is displaying correctly.
And I'm certain since the monitor displays correctly in win10
I think it's a driver issue but installing latest GPU drivers didn't solve this issue.

What you see in the last pic is not bad camera quality, that is actually what is displayed on the monitor. I can barely read it.

A:Dual monitor setup locks 144Hz monitor at 60Hz

Are you sure the other monitors are independent (dual or multiple mode) rather than cloning the main monitor? If they clone the main monitor, then this explains the 60Hz refresh rate, as all settings (resolution, color depth, refresh rate) should be common for all monitors and the others can only do 60Hz.

Running dual monitors in Win 10 and when going through the Color calibration steps on monitor #2 (Control panel / Display / Calibrate color) the settings stick as long as the 2nd monitor is active.

If I switch to single display (Windows Key + P / PC Screen only) then the 2nd monitor loses its color calibration. Also anytime I reboot my PC (Even if I have both monitors active) the 2nd monitor loses my calibration.

The 2nd monitor has a fairly strong bias for the color Green so I can always tell right away.

I'm probably overlooking something and was hoping someone might of dealt with this before

I would try one of these before giving up on the monitor:

Rosewill 10ft. DVI-A (24+5) Male to HD15 VGA Male Analog Video Cable w/ Ferrites Cores, Model RCW-900 -

Forget adapters, you might not a have a compatible one, the DVI connector has many variants.

Look at that cable end and make sure it would fit on your video card's female DVI connector (it should), it's DVI-A (analog only) to VGA which is analog only....

I don't understand why you are using a combination of DVI (to VGA) out of your HD6670 to one monitor, and also using the VGA out of your motherboard to the other monitor.

Am I interpreting what you've done correctly? You are using just the DVI output from your HD6670 through a DVI-to-VGA adapter and on to your first monitor, and also using the VGA output from the onboard graphics of the motherboard to feed the second monitor? If so, this is very wrong.

Your new HD6670 has TWO video outputs of its own: one is DVI, and the other is VGA. You should connect your second analog monitor to the VGA output of the HD6670, not to the onboard graphics VGA output.

Also, if you can disable the onboard graphics in the BIOS that's definitely what you should do when you install an external video card as you've done. At the very least you should give priority to the new PCIe video over PCI (which was your old GeForce card, and probably onboard graphics chip as well?), although "AUTO" might be just as acceptable. I'd still disable onboard graphics if I could.

You might have been using a combination of the old GeForce video card and onboard graphics before (did that GeForce card only have a single output?), but the new HD6670 has dual-output of its own, and that's how you should connect your two monitors... to the two outputs of the HD6670. I suspect that while your old dual-monitor setup was kind of a kluge of PCI-GeForce and PCI-onboard graphics and worked fine, the new setup involving the PCIe 2.1 HD6670 is a different beast entirely. Probably the onboard graphics output is being suppressed by the BIOS in light of the PCIe graphics card, but who knows.

Anyway the correct setup for you is to use the dual video outputs of your HD6670 to support your dual monitors. You should NOT be using onboard graphics at all, and if possible it should be disabled in the BIOS settings of your motherboard.

The ATI Catalyst drivers that manage your HD6670 are prepared to support your two monitors directly connected to the two video outputs on the HD6670 itself. The DVI->VGA adapter to one monitor, and VGA to the second monitor... this is a standard setup.

Have you installed or upgraded to the latest Catalyst drivers from the ATI/AMD support site? This is a good idea.

Right click on your desktop, select Screen Resolution, then click on the screen you want to make primary. Select Multiple Displays, and it should be there!

I have a dual monitor setup, where the laptop is hooked to a 2nd monitor (TV) thru an HDMI . I primarily use the 2nd monitor. Can I blank screen the 1st (laptop screen) monitor, yet continue to use the 2nd monitor with the lid open for access to the keyboard?(I noticed with changed settings in Win7 control panel, I can close the lid without cutting off [sleep, hibernate or shut-off] the computer and had to reduce the 2nd monitor display to fit the visible screen. But to use the keyboard one has to open the laptop lid, which kicks in the 1st screen)Thank you

First of all hello And thanks for your time I am running a dual monitor setup with my TV hooked up via HDMI to my laptop Everything was working fine before I always had the laptop as my main display yet I could play a video or a game fullscreen on the TV Since a couple of days as soon as I put something in fullscreen it immediately goes on my laptop regardless if it's open on my TV or my laptop I don't remember changing installing anything that could've changed that I checked a bit in the AMD vision software and the Windows control pannel but I can't seem to solve my problem without switching my TV as the main display I also made a quick search on google as well as here but the problems were mainly with Flash which isn't in cause here Here are my system specs Toshiba Satellite L D Windows home premium -bit AMD Radeon Dual on monitor goes monitor - fullscreen wrong setup G Thanks Djoulz

A:Dual monitor setup - fullscreen goes on wrong monitor

My desktop has my LCD monitor through Display Port and my TV through DVI. What I do is have my multiple monitors set to "Extend these displays" and make the LCD the primary display. Ive included two pictures of what my settings look like, first is with the LCD(1) selected and the second is the TV(2).

I will say that sometimes the program you are using forces the fullscreen to go to the primary screen, I have had this trouble with Everquest a number of years ago. There was a program that you could run with the game that allowed you to put the game window into boxes, different screens and a bunch of other things.

I primarily use my TV for watching movies/tv, Media Player Classic does a great job of being able to open to fullscreen in either monitor, regardless of how the monitors are setup.

I have the 2nd setup through a vga to hdmi cable but it just sits there black with "check signal cable."

2nd monitor is an lg2241


- multiple re-boots
- downloaded a driver from LG but don't see that it did any kind of install. Double clicking it's zip file opened it and clicking on the three files did nothing but open gibberish code.
- at screen resolution I see multiple displays and I have it set on extended.
- Clicked detect and identify
- #2 says display device on vga
- tried unplugging and reconnecting the cable (hdmi to vga)

I'm lost. SOS!



A:Dual monitor setup hdmi to vga on 2nd monitor shows nothing

Dave welcome to the Seven Forums.

That cable won't work unless the VGA port on the computer/laptop supports digital (highly unlikely), as VGA is an analogue signal and HDMI is digital. To get it to work you would need some kind of converter not an adapter, which that cable essentially is.

Assuming this is your monitor,

LG E2241V-BN: 22" Full HD LED LCD Monitor | LG USA

is says it has a VGA port on it. If it does then just use a plain old VGA cable.

I have an HP Envy with Win8 pre-installed. I am trying to do a dual boot setup with windows 7, as some of the software I use daily, is not compatible with win8. The new software has yet to be released, and will not run in any compatibility modes.

Knowing this is beating a dead horse, I have searched for hours, and have gotten some of the pre-req stuff done ie: created virtual drive 20gb, initialized it, turned UEFI Mode/Secure Boot OFF, etc.

I can see the vhd, but when I try to load win7, the vhd is not visible. When I exit win7 install, and win8 reboots, I can no longer see the vhd.

I'm sure I'm not doing something right.

Welcome to EightForums.

Take a look at the NOTE at end this tutorial:
Downgrade Windows 8 to Windows 7

Also take note of Step Three, you will need the BIOS setting.
