Extra Monitor not being detected, may have something to do with AGP/DVI plug

Q: Extra Monitor not being detected, may have something to do with AGP/DVI plug

Hi, I recent came across another monitor, and I'm trying to use it as a dual display monitor (the kind where you can drag things across both monitors, etc). My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce GT 240 and it has a VGA port and DVI port. I bought a DVI to AGP plug (DVI male, AGP female) since the other monitor has a AGP male plug. However, when I plug it in it isn't detected, nor is it detected when I plug it into the motherboard AGP port. Both monitors work when I use them with the AGP port on my graphics card. Also, in device manager, if they are both plugged in, they both show up.

Any suggestions?

Preferred Solution: Extra Monitor not being detected, may have something to do with AGP/DVI plug

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: Extra Monitor not being detected, may have something to do with AGP/DVI plug

I think you mean D-Sub, not AGP. AGP is a type of graphics card slot on the motherboard. On the chance that the adapter is bad, try another brand. They are relatively inexpensive.

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.


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.

Yesterday when I turned on my computer I received a message inviting me to install a new update to Java (Version 7 Update 25). After doing a precautionary search via Google that this was a legitimate update, I proceeded with the installation process. At the time I was using the Firefox browser (although I also use IE 9). At the end of the process I received a prompt at the bottom of the Firefox browser asking me to install the Java Plug-in. I then visited the "Verify Java Version" page which confirmed that I had the recommended version of Java installed (Version 7 Update 25). As Java recommend that users should uninstall older versions of Java from their computer, I ran the Java Uninstall Tool, but that confirmed that there were no older versions of Java on my computer.

I then opened IE9 but when I went to the same web page to verify my Java version I got a pop-up message saying that"Java plug-in 10.25.2 is not installed properly. Java plug-in detected JRE collision." That was followed by a further pop-up saying "Java Plug-in Warning - Applet(s) in this HMTL page requires a version of Java different from the one the browser is currently using. In order to run the applet(s) in this HTML page a new browser session is required. Close all the Netscape browser sessions and start a new browser session to run the HTML page."

I can't boot into Win Xp Pro because of this error.

A:BSOD on boot - Plug and Play detected an error

Remove any USB external drives attached when booting or power them off.

USB devices attached (other than mouse or keyboard) have been known to interfere with XP boot process, as XP recognizes that something is there but cannot account for it because the USB drivers are not yet installed (that's how I think of it).

Same thing can happen with flash drives and card readers, I think.

Once booting is complete, then power the devices on.

Alright, so my dad's Dell D620 just died and he needs a new laptop. I had an idea to make the old laptop into a second monitor that can be easily carried around and can be used with his laptop when he's at work.

According to Dell, the laptop's mobo is dead, and we aren't spend $700 on a refurbed mobo when we can buy a brand spanking new laptop at that price.

So my question is, does anyone know how to convert this old laptop into a standalone monitor?

Hi, Im running Win7HP, and would like to add a second display to my PC, I have a couple of questions tho. Do the monitors need to be the same size and resolution, currently im running a single 42" 1080p LG TV via HDMI as my main screen but would be great to add a smaller screen to put a movie on or something while i'm working on the main screen. Sadly another monitor of the same size it out of the question due to space restrictions and I'd rather not buy a new panel at all if possible I do have a 1366x768 (720p) panel not doing much at the moment so using that would be ideal.
On my PC I have a HDMI port which I'm using to run the main display and also a DVI port which I hope tho run the other monitor from, my PC/Graphics Card (Radeon HD 6670) can support twin display.
So is this as easy as plugging the other monitor into my DVI port and it will find it right away, I'm assuming that if its possible i will need to set of the different resolutions manually but I will work that out when it comes to it, I need to know its gonna work first

Look forward to any reply,

Best Regards Jay

Edit, 1 other thing I should mention, as I plan on having the movie playing on the secondary monitor I would like to sound to come from that monitor also if possible, I know standard DVI doesnt send audio but have seen cable that are DVI+ Audio and have a little headphone jack on them.

A:Adding Extra Monitor to Win7

you 2 monitors dont have to be the same, and its as simple as plugging in a second monitor and you should be good to go.
You may have to adjust a few settings such as whcih is the primary monitor and if its a mirror or extension ect.

the only thing you will have issues with is the sound coming out of it. your pc cannot have 2 separate sound outputs. you could link the monitor to your pc with a jack to jack cable and then plug it into the audio input on the back of most monitors, buuut then ALL the sounds from your pc will only play through that monitor.

Davidpne If your laptop only has one video output jack, you can only connect one monitor to that jack. However, there are USB-to-Video adapters available that can connect monitors via VGA or DVI -- depending on the adapter. Understand, though, that you are limited in the bandwidth of the connector and the USB port.  You're not going to see the same resolution and performance with a monitor connected to a USB adapter as you do with a monitor connected via a VGA, DVI, or DP port. Good LuckI am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.========================================================================If you feel my suggestions helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks!If they helped resolve your issue, please click "Accept As Solution" to help others find similar information.

I usually had my Gateway NV53A (AMD Mobility Radeon HD 4200 series Graphics card) connected and I never had a problem. Recently I connected my Samsung to the monitor and again, had no problems. When I reconnect my gateway the PC detects the monitor but the monitor does not detect the PC. If I switch back to the Samsung it works fine. I have reset the TV to factory default the only way I know how (owners manual). I have unplugged the power cable to the TV for 10 min+. I have changed from a 14 pin VGA to a 15 pin. I have updated all drivers.

Hi Guys,

First post here. I have a MSI GS70 Stealth Pro laptop. One fine day, when i plugged it into a external monitor , it did not display proper. I dont know how to put it into words, but it got confused with the number of monitors. The image below explains it much better.

Also in Device manager, it would show me two Generic PnP monitors.

Please note - this would happen even if I unplug the external monitor.

After some tinkering, I found out that installing Hyper V will cause this problem. So if i do a reset and go back to window 8, install windows 10, everything is fine. As soon as I install Hyper-v the display problem starts happening. If I installer Hyper-v it becomes Ok again.

I've had this laptop for 2 years, and this problem only suddenly appeared. I sent it for repairs, and they sent it back after a hard reset to window 8.1. I am going crazy, is this a hardware fault or a software issue? Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Drivers from the Samsung website are no help. Graphics card is completely up to date.



A:It's 2010 and I still can't just plug in a monitor and have it work

I cannot help but think this is a Samsung driver issue. I have a dual LG display but had to install the driver for each for Windows to permit their respective resolutions. Another, less likely source could be ATi's CCC if you are running same.

I have small Medion laptop computer with LG LCD monitor.

It all worked fine for two weeks but now when I start my PC monitror does not respond. It stays in stand-by mode. If I unplug the monitor it says "Check you input cable" so I guess monitor knows it is connected to a PC but PC won't run it.

What could be the problem?
