Hello,

I am looking into upgrading one of our conference rooms at work with something that can provide output to at least 2 HDTV and 1 projector, with the future of a 3rd hdtv.

I been out the loop for awhile with video cards, and wanted to know if anybody knows of a way this can be done with a possible video card that has 4 hdmi outputs? They will be (2) 55 inch hdtvs and a projector which should output its own resolution

Thanks for the help ahead of time.
 

A:Any video cards with 4 HDMI outputs?

No video cards I know of have 4 HDMI outputs, but you can find plenty of cards that have that many if you combine DVI + Displayport. You could always use DP converters to HDMI got get the appropriate number of connections, but remember that after 2 non DP devices you'll need to start using Active Converters if you plan to keep the signal digital.

With Windows XP SP3 I was able to transmit audio which was digital and sometimes multi-channel to my Denon reciever through the HDMI output on my motherboard; I was also able to simultaneoulsy display my computer through that same HDMI connection through my Denon reciever and on to my my Toshibe LCD TV.
But when I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit the HDMI audio was very limited (only 16 bit 2-channel @ 48,000 Hz) and can only select it when the reciever is on (which makes sense, but it's anoying to have to go into sound properties and switch to HDMI if I started the computer before the reciever, I hate technology trying to pretend it knows what I want it to do, it should just be able to do what it's told.) Then, when I turn on the TV this message comes up (which I would see when I was using XP but it didn't change anything):
An HDMI-to-DVI display connection has been detected. In order to hear audio on your HDMI based TV or display, you will need to have a seperate audio conecction from you computer sound outputs to your TV or audio equipment.
However I'm not using the DVI at all I just want to use the HDMI into HDMI because that's the way it's supposed to work because HDMI is supposed to handle both and I shouldn't need to use another cord when I'm already using one that does both.
And so then my sound no longer works but my computer shows on my TV.

I am considering buying an HDMI splitter to get around a problem I now have when streaming music only from the Internet. Currently I have about a 15 ft. cable running from the HDMI output on my computer to my Samsung TV. With this setup everything works fine. I can watch Youtube videos or Netflix movies. The thing that I don't like is that if I want to just stream music for several hours, I have to leave the TV on since the audio connection from the TV to my receiver is not a pass thru. It is only live when the TV is on. I am wondering if I can use an HDMI splitter to solve this problem. What I plan to do is to connect the computer HDMI output to the input on the splitter. Then use one of the splitter's outputs to go to the Samsung TV and the other one to go to my receiver via an HDMI-to-2 Channel Stereo Y-adapter. Just wondering if the connection to the non-HDMI device via the Y-adapter will upset the functioning of the splitter. What about the the EDID handshaking and HDCP signal that HDMI sources and displays need in order to function?

I got an HDTV with an HDMI port today. My motherboard (Asus M3N HD-HDMI) has a onboard port for HDMI. At first, my pc would not run to the TV. I looked through the BIOS and found an option called onboard GPU it was set to auto. I changed it to always enabled. I searched around and found the display control and set it towards the onboard port. But it still would not want to send the display to the TV. So after while I removed the graphic card (Geforece 6800 GT) suspecting that was the problem. I did not want to remove it because I still play pc games. After removing the card the port started to work. I want to know is there a way for the display go to the onboard port while still having the graphic card installed and use it for my games and still route it to the port. Also what would be the best settings for the TV? I installed the drivers for the motherboard but the display isn't all the great. If all else fails I can always use the TV for my xbox 360

A:Onboard HDMI port inconflict of graphics card

The HDMI onboard must also be connected to the onboard Video circuitry as well.
By plugging in the addon (Geforece 6800 GT) Asus Motherboard setup has concluded that you do not require the onboard Video (anything) and turned it off automatically (and you cannot change that setting)

One option would be to have a addon Video Card that also has HDMI on it.
Or purchase a PCI HDMI compatible card.

For video editing purposes, I bought an ASUS GT640 video card because it has two DVI outputs and an HDMI output. I plugged that sucker into my PCI express x16 slot, turned the computer on, and both monitors and the TV said "NO SIGNAL" even though the fan on the video card was spinning. I ended up staying up too late last night researching the issue, and it appears to be that the system BIOS isn't recognizing the GT640's video BIOS, so it does not think a video card is plugged in.
On any other BIOS I've ever worked on, I could disable the onboard video, but to my dismay, no such option exists in the XPS 8300 BIOS.
My XPS 8300 works fine with the two other older video cards that I plugged into that slot, so initially I thought perhaps it was because I was using a newer video card. So I plugged the GT640 into an older Inspiron 518 (circa 2008) just to see what happens. The GT 640 worked fine in the old computer! Which would be great, except that the old computer has 4gb of RAM and a core 2 duo. The 8300 I bought has an i7 and 16gb of RAM, which makes a huge difference when editing HD video. I also briefly installed the card in my wife's XPS 8500 - and it works fine there! It seems that the only computer it does not work with is the one computer I happened to buy last month from the Dell Outlet.
Apparently this has been an issue with other video cards and the XPS 8300. I've seen rumors about nvidia developing a workaround involving changes to the ... Read more

A:XPS 8300 won't disengage onboard video and enable add-on video card

At least with the GTX 680, nVidia acknowledged that this is their problem and they were going to release a firmware update to vendors who make GTX 680 cards . I wouldn't be surprised if it's the same nVidia issue with the GTX 640.

This hardware question is about adding in an older NVidia graphics card to replace the onboard video.

One error I'm getting and computer power up is 'not getting signal' at the monitor from the onboard video.

A sample install of the add-in card to bypass that connection gave a typical blue screen with the message of a new piece of (something-- hardware software) is not recognized.

The motherboard has Radeon 4540 graphics on the board. The add-in card which is used is an Nvidia XFX gotten from a friend who is upgrading.

My question is this:

It is known that a hard disk can be migrated from one rig to another by modifying the driver in Device Manager. What this does is have Win7 make a new discovery of the hardware piece. Can something similar be done with video in Device Manager or the BIOS on this MSI 880GM-E41 model MS 7623?

Additionally, could a reinstall of Win7 adding in the proper Nvidia driver which I put on a cd solve the problem?

Or does the chipset simply not support Nvidia? I have looked at the specifications manual page and found nothing on it. The Radeon info comes from the Everest diagnostic program.

thanks for any replies

Hi, and thanks in advance for reading this.  At the shop I work at, we'd like to run three monitors on this Pavilion.  Nothing crazy in terms of video requirements - normal desktop stuff and YouTube videos. The onboard Radeon doesn't have all the ports I needed, so I picked up a GeForce 8600GS card from EVGA with 1gb of onboard memory (thinking that I'd just run the 3rd screen off of it). Now it seems the onboard Radeon is disabled.  I get two screens lit up properly when they're plugged into the EVGA card, but nothing when I connect them to the onboard ports. I assume one of three things has happened:1. The onboard card is automatically disabled when a discrete card is installed.2. I can't run these particular AMD and nVidia cards in the same box (which would be my screwup, I realize).3. Something I haven't thought of yet. Anyone know what's wrong and how I'd go about getting what I want (ideally both cards active)?

How did you disable the onboard video? I would bet you need to go into the bios and re enable the card because that had to be where you disabled it and do not disable any video cards in Device Manager. With newer systems, there really is no need to disable onbaord video as bios settings usually allow agp or pci-express when installed or onboard when none installed.

A friend of mine at work had an hp pavilion a250n. He said the onbord video quit working so he bought another ati video card, still didnt work. He tested the new video card on another computer and it worked fine. He even connected the computer to a different monitor, also connected the monitor on it to another computer. The monitor worked, but when he connected the computer up to a different monitor it still didnt work. So he gave the computer to me since my daughter doesnt like her new laptop, she says she prefers desktops. Anyway Im wondering if this is a video problem or could it be a cpu or memory problem? I plugged the computer up and it boots up, but was thinking they may not be strong enough to handle the video. I have never ran across this problem and I have built many computers in the past.

I was wondering if I have three monitors can I have two of them through my graphics card and my third one through the onboard vga port and still extend the screen to all three of them? thanks in advance

A:Onboard video and video card with three monitors?

It depends on your PC. Most computers won't let you use onboard and pci video cards at the same time. Your video card may have 3 different ports in which you should be able to get it to work. You will need to use the software given to you on the disc that came with the card. For example, I use Catalyst Center. You would connect all three, then find the settings to extend the first monitor, then the second. Yours may be slightly different but thats generally what you're trying to accomplish.

As a friendly reminder. Windows defender is not good enough as a stand alone anti-virus program. I would advise at the very least Microsoft Security Essentials but would recommend something like Avast as a free option.

I moved my monitor to a different computer and it works great. Is it possible the new video card messed up my motherboard? And how would I test that cause I don't want my other computer to stop working too lol

A:Onboard video not working after trying new video card

First, let's see if we can get your video back.

Remove the new card and connect the monitor to the on board video, then perform a ClearCMOS procedure. Check your motherboard manual for the procedure (CLRTC is the same thing).
All but the newest boards do it like so:
Shut down the computer > remove the power cord.
Remove the 3v battery.
Move the CLRTC jumper from pins 1-2 to 2-3.
Touch a metal part of the case and Press and Hold the reset button for approx. 30 seconds to discharge all power from the board.
Put the CLRTC jumper back on pins 1-2.
Replace the 3v battery > replace the power cord > boot.
Immediately go into BIOS and reset all your preferred settings. If the CLRTC worked you will need to reset the date and time.

I just bought a new 27" monitor, should be delivered Monday. On my desktop system I currently have a 24" monitor which I'll pair with my new monitor. I have an nVidia GeForce 8600 GT video card with 512 MB memory, one DVI port and one VGA (d-sub) port. I have a Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD3H motherboard with onboard video and a DVI port. I have 4 gigs RAM, core i5 cpu, running Win 8.1 64-bit. I do not play games on this system.

Eventually I'll get a new video card with two DVI ports but that will be a while yet. Until then, rather than use the video card for both monitors, which means one would be on DVI and one VGA, would it be better to put one monitor on the video card DVI port and the other on the motherboard onboard video DVI port?

Also, if I do this, how much memory should I allocate to the onboard video? Options are 32 MB to 1024 MB.

Thanks!

Edit: Just to be clear, I'm pretty sure my mb will allow this. What I'm really wondering is if this will give me a better display on the secondary monitor using dvi rather than vga connection.

Hi hcour, you cannot use 2 GPU's to power 2 different monitors unfortunately, you can have 2 sound cards and 2 input devices but graphics cards are not something you can duplicate unless they are the same cards, you can use something called hybrid SLI if your onboard GPU is also nvidia but it won't use both monitors. Best option is to VGA and DVI them.

This is going to be really annoying if i cant use both at the same time. I am trying to get 3 monitors running and want to use the onboard display port or vga port alongside my PCI-E video card and it seems in the bios that only one can work at a time. I am assuming this means i have to use a PCI card with my PCI-e one to get more than the 2 i have at a time. Has anyone gotten onboard working alongside a PCI or PCI-E card? Seems like a silly thing to not enable in the Board as businesses have a need for more than 2 sometimes.Any assistance would be great. 

A:Use PCI-e video card and onboard video at same time

Firstly, which desktop model do you have? this is only possible with selected versions of the Thinkcentre equipped with AMD processors using SurroundView.Intel equipped motherboard does not allow this.If you want a third display on the non-supported model try something like the USB2DVI or USB2VGA converter. Or Matrox DualHead2Go. Or Nvidia graphics card that have 4 displayport out (supports 4 LCD), but these a full height card and would not fit in a small form factor machine.The first option is the cheapest.

Try another monitor as thats easy. Also listen for any beeps or signs of activity from the computer.

A:i need to disable onboard video card

On bootup there will be a message to enter your bios. In your bios look for a video option that will allow you to disable your on board video. On the reboot, turn it off and install your new card.
Good Luck

I've just bought a new video card; BFG GeForce Fx 5700. I haven't been able to play any games so far. Everytime I start the games up they crash or run VERY slowly. HL2 stopped me from going into windows completely causing me to completely reinstall. Does anybody know if i need to disable the onboard video card or is there another solution?
Here's my specs;

Winfast K7s 741mg
2.5 AMD Processor
Geforce 5700 256 DDR
1 gig DDR ram (2x512)
WD 100 Gig HD
WD 80 Gig HD
Philips 16x Dvd dual layered
52x32x52 Cd Rewriter.

Hello! My video card is:

Intel(R)810e Chipset Graphics Driver(DC133FSB133)4.11.01.1321

I'm planning on putting in a video card for linux so that I can use X. How can I disable the onboard video card so that I can use the new, regular card? I don't think I can use the onboard thing when I have another video card. Thanks for any help that can be provided!

A:Disabling onboard video 'card'.

Hi maxim
Some motherboards have a jumper on them to disable the onboard video. There might also be a place somewhere in the BIOS to turn it off and finally some motherboards automatically turn off the on board video if a video card is installed.

Can I run my on-board graphics and a video card at the same time on the same computer and if so how do I go about enabling both? I have a ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO motherboard that I installed a Galaxy GT430 1GB DDR3 128bit video card for which I had to disable the on-board Ati Radeon HD 4200 graphics to work! my question is can I enable both the on-board and the video card at the same time to connect one to a monitor using the vga connector and the other to a hdtv using a hdmi cable? If so how do I enable both? (I cannot use the hdmi on the grapics card because of the space on my computer case where the hdmi is is too tight to put a hdmi cable in! but the mother board has an hdmi connection that I can utilize, can this be done?)
 

A:Video card and onboard graphics?

After writing this post I found the answer in another post that i didn't see at first and found that doing it the way I wanted is not possible but I did some more research and found an adapter that can convert VGA to hdmi on this site: http://aluratek.com/vga-to-hdmi-1080p-adapter-with-audio which I think will solve my problem for now, my monitor is a 19" flat screen tv that doesn't have hdmi,only vga and I have a HDTV and I want to run my computer thru both and I think this adapter will do the trick. will keep you posted on the results of the project when I finally get the adapter. That link should be :http://aluratek.com/vga-to-hdmi-1080p-adapter-with-audio (adapter-with-audio)

I have a PC with an integrated video card, and a new video card lined up for it. How do I disable the integrated card and update the PC to recognize the new card?
 

A:Disabling Onboard Video Card

Right click on My Computer => Manage => System Tools => Device Manager => Display Adapters => Right click on the Integrated card and choose Disable.

You can also do it on BIOS (by hitting Delete after the computer starts up), but I feel more convenient doing the other way.

If you have an onboard video card and then you install in a graphics card, will they work together? I'm getting a motherboard with a Geforce 6150, and a Geforce 7600GT. Will they work together, or will the Geforce 7600GT just do everything?
 

A:Onboard Video + Graphics Card?

The 7600GT will do everything. But that's ok if you want dual monitors because the 7600GT can support 2 screens.

Hi; just installed an ATI 4850 card in a Gigabyte GA-MA78G-DS3H Mobo, [AMD 64x2 6000+]. The Graphics Experience Index jumped from 3.6 to 5.9. (I don't do any high-end gaming and was focusing mainly on HDTV resolution, but it looks impressive on paper) Mobo has ATI 3200 onboard video.

Question is: "should I disable the onboard video in the bios, or leave it alone?" Current settings apparently work fine, but is there an advantage to disabling the onboard... or is it one of those , 'leave well enough alone' thingies?

Thanks

its not a problem, infact catalyst control center is crossfiring your card with the onboard one, its not a problem and if you disable it you may get a performance drop

Hi everyone

I have a bit of a problem. I own an HP Pavilion 6350 and I just purchased a new video card for it (ATI Radeon 32 MB PCI.) My system lists that the current onboard card is a SiS 5597/5598.

When I plug my monitor into the new card, my monitor does not come on. From doing some research, I believe I am supposed to "disable" the onboard video card so that the system will use the new one.

Any ideas on just how I should do that?

BTW...I looked all over the HP support site (if that is what u want to call it) and found nothing. Also, I searched this forum and found a lot of people in very similar situations but not exactly this one so unfortunately, the advice there didn't help much.

I would appreciate any help. Thx in advance...

Would anyone happen to know if the onboard video should be disabled in the BIOS when installing a new graphics card in a PCIExp slot. If it is left enabled, the PC should find the new card and boot from it, correct?
 

A:Graphics card and onboard (Intel) Video

yes it should auto detect your setup...if it does not THEN you might need to enable/disable in bios

I just installed Windows XP Plus and for the games to work it requires 16 megs of video memory for it to work.

So got a new video card with 64 megs of memory, disabled the onboard video card in device manager, and installed new card.

Now with the new card installed in device manager it shows the onboard video disabled, and the new video card enable with 64 megs of memory but windows xp "PLUS" does not recognize the 64 megs of ram for the video card.

Does anyone know how to over come this problem

As always any help appreciated.

Greetings all,

I have a Gateway computer, 2 GB ram, Win 7, and I was using an nvidia geforce 8600 gts video card.

It's been working great for moderate gaming like WoW and Starcraft 2. I started getting distorted screens suddenly that got worse and worse and eventually always looked like this .

I did try looking for new drivers, but I don't remember if I had done any updating immediately before.

If I take the card out, the distortion and lines go away, but WoW will flicker on the odd occasion and then sometimes the screen will go black and it will shut off.

Maybe a driver issue? I've taken some looks at my CPU temp with Speedfan immediately after it shut down and it wasn't bad, around 50 which is a bit warm but nothing extreme.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Possibly relevant: To my memory there was a Windows Update that was display related recently. Now the card is out, I get error Code 80072F8F when I try to install this update. Maybe because the card is now gone?

Help!!

Hello, I'm having problems disabling a Dell Dimension 2400 Intel Integrated Extreme 3D graphics card and installing a new Radeon 9200 SE card. Every attempt to attach the new card results in a power up w/ nothing being displayed on screen (no BIOS or anything).

Is there a safe way to disable the on-board graphics card, that (in case the new card has problems) we can fall back to it without damaging the system? The new card is PCI by the way.

Thank You,
DrakeonX
 

A:Disable onboard video & Install new card?

You can try this from Dell

Dell2400

Please let us know if it works because the last time this came up it didn't appear to work. I also saw a post on one of the Dell forums about a BIOS update allowing you to disabling onboard video. Don't know if this is true so I'll look into it.
