Split Monitor Cable & Extension

Q: Split Monitor Cable & Extension

Hi, guys! I am not sure what to buy!

I have a Dell 19" monitor. I dunno what kind it is. Flat screen.
But I just bought an ASUS VH238 23-inch.
Now, I want to do the dual-monitor thing, but I want the 23-inch to have a nice long cord... 6 or 8 feet.
Let me know if I'm out of my mind.
I also need the splitter.

Can anyone provide (no Ebay please) links to appropriate cables--both splitter and extender?
Or am I just being a big baby?
I don't want to buy crap, but don't want to spend a lot either.
Help!
And thanks!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Split Monitor Cable & Extension

Do you want to see the same thing on both monitors or two separate things? A splitter will only show you the same thing on both screens, including the same resolution. If you want to see two different things on each monitor then you will need a video card that has two outputs.

A 6 or 8 ft cable isn't much of a problem. But the cable type may depend on what video card or integrated graphics you have and what outputs are present, many(most actually) new systems support dual outputs, just check the back of the PC or post the specs/info on your computer.

Hi guys,

I've been rearranging my workspace, and tried to connect my monitor (viewsonic 19in flat screen) with an extension svga cable. The machine powers on and I get a display, but the optimal viewing resolution (the monitor has a little popup message that says 1440x900) is not available as an option when I go into display settings.
When I look in device manager, the monitor is listed as a generic plug/play device. Do I need to manually install a driver from teh manufacturer? Previously, when just plugging the monitor directly to the machine with no cable the display looked fine, but now it doesn't look as good.

thanks,
bp
 

A:monitor detected as standard plug and play when connected with extension cable

You'd be better of with a long high quality cable then using an extension.

Yes, install the drivers from the manufactures website. These will help your GPU set the correct resolution.

No, you can not do that. You have to get yourself a hub or a switch to get more ethernet ports.

So basically, I have a single line connecting me to the world. Problem is, I want to add another computer in the next room.

Now I could, run another line ... 100+ feet in my attic, but honestly I don't want to.

Is it possible without using a gadget (such as a hub or router), to simply split the cat5 cable ... like with a T-adapter?

If trying such a thing isn't prudent, please fill me in on why that's the case.

i know splitting LAN cable in to two and taking one branch off to one place and one to another is NOT a good thing to do, but at the time it was the only thing we were able to do.

The problem is it is all under the floors and practically un accessable.

We ran a CAT5 cable from one office to another when it was being redone and also wanted another cable going from office one to another office, trouble was office one was already done and decorated with only one socket and cable coming in.

The cable is then split half way along and another cable was attached in. (sorry this is really hard to describe!)

Office 1 ---------------------------------------------------> office 2
|
|
|
\/

Well anyway, the cable to office 3 is now redundant and not being used and isnt connected up. The trouble is when we connect up either ends from office 1 to office 2, there is power down each cable (tested with a volt meter) but we can not get a LAN connection on a computer or router.

We have tried everything we can think of short of tearing the floor up.

Anyone any ideas why it wont work?

Sorry if its not very clear, and sounds like a load of waffle, thanks in advance..

Hi, I have windows home 7, home built pc with Asus motherboard. Don't ask me further spec details cuz I have no idea about most of the specs (an ex built it and can't get in control panel due to monitor issue). I just know that it's supposed to be kick-*** with a 5.8 windows score.

The PC boots fine, gives you the option to start windows normally or leave it do its' thing... but either way I try, it makes no difference to monitor.
When it boots, the monitor shows all the usual details, the bios pic, starting... and as soon as it reaches desktop point (I think), it goes black even though monitor is still powered and no errors about no signal. If I turn monitor off and on, it will quickly show me the desktop then it goes black again.

I'd appreciate any help or insight.

Hi, first thing I would try is to connect the PC to another monitor that is known to be in good working order. If the same problem occurs then we will know it is a problem with the PC, if it functions normally you will know it is a problem with your monitor.

I'm not quite sure that this is in the right section, but here goes anyway:

SO, quite simply is: Does the quality of the USB extension cable affect the performance of the device you're using it with?

For example, if I am using a Wi-Fi dongle, and using a USB extension cable to position it in a higher gain area, would using a 50p cable from eBay yield the same performance as say a more expensive/ higher grade Gold plated one?

I have a HP Split X2 Model 13-m110dx.  I replaced the LCD/Digitizer assembly, which required I remove all hardware from the display assembly.  My question focuses on the cable that connects the motherboard to the audio/HDMI/Dock board (item 7 on page 17 of http://www.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03958968.pdf).  The cable of interest is the left one (with a 45 degree bend in it), and how it connects at either end.  A pic is below with the cable (yellow/gold). My question:  Is this a ZIF connector or do I need to lift up the front to release it?  A portion of the gray part of the connector broke off when I tried to lift it, assuming it was a clamp style ribbon cable connector.  The other end of the cable connects to the Motherboard with the same type connector.  I pulled that one out, but it's unclear if that is damaged if I did that wrong. Problem:  The HP Upgrade/Parts manual doesn't define how to disconnect these cables.  After reassembly, the keyboard/dock no longer connects, so what I have now is a standalone tablet w/o any USB ports or keyboard.  I ordered a new audio board in the hopes that resolves the issue. Anyone have any input on this?

Hello to everyone

As i'm new to this forum, as welcome note i have problem to present.

Before few months i bought 2 USB extension cables for my mouse and keyboard.
They are about meter and half long, and in that time i did not have any problems with them, until last night.
In one moment i unplugged keyboard from USB extension cable and after that after i plugged it again, the keyboard did not work, not any kind of message or sound after you plug in something to usb port. So i tried plugging in mouse in same extension cable and mouse worked, but after switching keyboard to another ext.cable it did not work again.
Only way for keyboard to work is to plug it in directly to PC.
I tried uninstalling USB drivers so let windows install them automatically, but same nothing happen, only mouse is working ... :S its weird, don't know what to do as booth extension cables are obviously working. Tested with mouse. Keyboard is working as i said before i tested it plugging in directly. Never seen this kind of problem.

i have a 15m usb extension cable and i need to run more than one device from it.

At the moment i can only run one thing, a mouse.

I also have a usb hub, from tescos and i was going to use it to connect multiple devices to the one usb cable/port.

I tried doing this but it although the light on the port came on none of the devices plugged in worked or showed and lights or signs at at all?? but the hub works fine when plugged into the computer with no extension.

i tried plugging in a keyboard in individually too, instead of the the mouse and it didn't work, so at the moment i can only run a mouse from that port??

I think it maybe to do with the lack of power from the one port but i am not sure. On the 4 port hub i have it does have a 5v power socket too(to allow more powerful device to run off it) but i don't have a power cable for it.

Will getting the power cable help me?

The coaxial cable that comes out of the antenna is much thinner than standard RG6 (about 1/8" dia.), and I'm not sure if I can attach that thin cable to a splitter and then run RG6 cables out of the splitter.

Do you know what that thin coax is called, and whether it would be better to stick with that kind of cable throughout the cable runs?

A:Headphone Extension Cable Problem

Is it possible to use a USB-C extension cable with the DA200 Adapter? I haven't got much room on my desk so I'd like to move this to behind my monitors. I've tried with the one USB-C extension cable already and this hasn't worked so I was wondering whether I need a particular type?

A:Dell DA200 - Extension cable?

You'd need a USB-C cable that supported at least USB 3.1 Gen 1 traffic, maybe even 3.1 Gen 2.  I would get the latter just to be safe, although that will limit your maximum cable length. Some USB-C extension cables only support USB 2.0 because they're primarily intended to be used for charging and maybe some data transfer where bandwidth isn't as much of a priority, but such cables will not only slow down the USB and Ethernet connections on the DA200 (if they worked at all), but they would also lack the necessary wires to carry display traffic, which uses the USB 3.1 wires.  For gory details on the vast variations of USB-C and Thunderbolt cables, check out my post here: en.community.dell.com/.../20017817

I've just bought a Freecom 500GB Toughdrive. It is brand new and I have not yet transfered any data on to it.

I'm running Windows 7 64bit on an Abit AN8 Ultra mainboard.

When I plug in the tough drive using the integrated usb cable (on my USB 1.1 or my USB 2.0 interfaces) the device seems to function normally and I can mount and access the drive. Neat.

However, if I then use the male > female extension cable, the light on drive comes on but the drive will not mount. I know that your thinking - this would suggest a faulty cable. Unfortunately not, since my 2 other usb extension cables which I know work, do not work with this drive. In addition, I have tested the drive and its extension cable on an XP SP3 laptop and it does work. I also tried the drive with cable on my win7 64 laptop and it worked - tho earlier it did not work. Power issue? I dont think so since its not a USB hub - its a straight male > female extension cable.

Please provide some explanation, as I am stumped. I can use the device, but it's a pain in the neck that I cant use an extension cable since my USB 2.0 ports are at the back of my computer and very difficult to access.

Thanks.

A:Inexplicable USB extension cable problem

No explanation, just a suggestion...get a USB hub that you can plug into the back, and that will give you easy access without having to go back there each time.

Can anybody help me out that how can i connect with my Cam which is fixed in my roof?

Is that your actual cable or just a picture you found?

You need a repeater with an active cable to travel that length without any losses.

I just got my Thinkpad X1 carbon 5th gen. Almost everything works fine, but the ethernet extension cable does not work. I can see the network adapter in the network connections, but it says that the network cable is removed I just pluged in the ethernet extension cable and connected it with the LAN. But the adapters LEDs do not blink. They just do nothing. So I tried the same LAN cable with an USB 3.0 ethernet adapter and it works. The device manager does not show any hardware or driver problems. What am I doing wrong? Is there a bios options that must be enabled or any other way to enable it?

I've tried various things and I'm unable to get a picture using my laptop on my Mitsubishi tv. I have VGA PC monitor replacement cable that I've hooked up to my laptop and the VGA port on the back of my tv. I've set the device on my tv to a 'VGA' device. On my laptop I've set the display to extend the desktop on my computer.
I've tried various resolutions and hertz (normally setting to 60mhz) but to no avail. I still get a black screen. I have no idea why this is not working.
Can someone help me out please. Oh by the way, when my tv is on, sometimes, I receive a warning to set my screen saver. But, I can't get anything to show up on the tv from my laptop.

The design of the Dell TB15's cable is really poor. The cable is hardwired on the docking station on the left side of the unit, which is same side the thunderbolt port is on the XPS15 9550. This gives you very little options on where to put the dock, since the cable is so short.
Has anyone found an TB3 extension cable that their using?
I'd really like to move the docking station away from where I keep my laptop. If I could find a 10' cable for the docking station, that would be perfect.
However, I'm not finding much in the way of female/male cables. I'm pretty sure I'd need an TB "active" cable.
Has anyone seen an extension cable that would work?
Thanks!

A:Extension cable for Dell TB15 docking station?

I asked this same question some time ago. It turns out that the TB15 cable is replaceable and the process is shown in the doc for it. Which would certainly indicate that they plan on having other lengths available at some point as the inside connector looks like some custom connector. That said, technically there is apparently a limitation on the cable length, I believe it is less than 3 feet. I have not found any ThunderBolt 3 extension cables.

I've got (several) excellent computer cases, and a tight-fit on a PC system desk setup.

(Typical) problem is: most all the PC "connections" to it are on the "back" & on the expansion slot panel.?! (all jacks & connectors are Ind. standard)

As you've probably figured out from my long Title above - I don't know what these extension arrays are actually called. I have seen them, (usually threaded inside the PC case from the back or Mobo, to the front).

Not knowing the 'correct'omundo name for these things has made googling for'um a lot harder. What i'd like is to 'extend' the connections for (at least) all my Graphics card Audio in/out jacks - and rear USB connections up to the front of the machine (where they should be on all machines in the first place)!

Actually. Other than things like the NIC card and A/C, I'd just as soon move "all" the "user access" connectors up front, to the top, the side, where ever they would be actually "accessable" .

I'm just tired of having to stand on my head - with a flash light in hand - tangled in wires that i'm not looking for - i'm sure lots of you have been there .

Any ideas where I can find these things, (or a correct NAME for um)? I'll buy them individually (if i have to), or a 'harness' with all the extended connections on it would be Ok with me.

Video connections extended up front might also b... Read more

A:PC case (expansion slot) extension cable array

Usually,newer motherboards have extra headers for connecting
the front panel connections.
Afraid graphics and network usually don't have header extensions,
but something like this can get audio/usb firewire up front.
You need to find one to match the headers.
USB is standard but audio can be standard or HD.

My problem is that I Have a wireless adapter hooked onto the end of 2 usb extension cables that have their own power supply, so its not a problem of range. I've had it set up like this for two months, where the wireless adapter was set on the end of the 2 usb extension cables, and it worked just fine.

I have a Linksys Wireless A/G USB Network Adapter

http://www.amazon.com/Linksys-WUSB54G-Wire...r/dp/B00009X6PH

Now suddenly I wake up one morning to find the message "USB Device not recognized." This only happens when I have the wireless adapter plugged into the two cables. I have tried plugging it into each of the different cables seperately, and it wont work on either cable, as well as working off the end of both cables. When I just plug it in straight into the computer it works fine. Any other USB device I plug into these cables works fine, weather it be a webcam etc. Just the combo of my Wireless adapter and my extension cables doesn't work. What do I do? But yeah if I have to buy something so be it, I'm just not sure whats wrong in this case. I've tried the most obvious means of solving the problem, simply restarting the computer, unplugging the device and plugging it back in etc. I've tried reinstalling the drivers on both the cables and the device, nothing seems to work. I don't understand it at all.

Thanks,
Acton
