M920s multple displays

Q: M920s multple displays

Hi All, I have a M920s that has 2 display ports and 1 VGA. I am trying to utilise up to 3 displays on this but it seems as though it only supports 1 screen which seems absurd given it has the ports. In Windows it just see's one of the display ports screens plugged in. I checked the BIOS, and cannot see 'multiple display support'. It has the latest BIOS. any ideas? thanks in advance!

Preferred Solution: M920s multple displays

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.)

Hi, I have just recently been noticing firefox.exe running when I log on. The browser doesn't show but firefox.exe is in the task manager. When I open FireFox, another firefox.exe opens.

I have suddenly obtained multiple virtual desktops. Most of my original desktop now appears in one or other of the virtual desktops. How can I remove them and get back to my original format. If I try to delete them others appear. Any ideas?

A:Multple desktops

Have you changed the name of a user? I am suspecting that when I did that (twice), it created another Desktop folder. I ended up with what appears to be three 'levels' so when you look at the lowest level, the path is Users\originalid\Desktop\Desktop\Desktop
See if your current desktop is that last one. I guess it runs but is aesthetically disgusting.

I have long had a HP5L printer attached to my system conneted toa parallell port (LPT1) .After upgrading to Windows7 from Vista it showed the printer connected to LPT3 (whatever that is) and when I tried to print the data gets to the spooler but will not print.

I tried to do an Add Printer to connect the printer to LPT1 but all it shows in Printer& Devices is HP5L (copy 2). I deleted the copy 2 but each time I try to add the printer it creates an additional copy for LPT3.

I physically removed the printer, shut down the system, restarted and get the same results. Printer & Devices shows only copy 2 of the printer connected to LPT3.

I connected the printer via a parrallell to USB adapter and when connected I get a message that the drivr was added and the device works. However, the device added is apparently NOT a printer.

If I run Belarc Advisor it shows three instances of HP5L all connecting to LPT3. How can I delete all references to the printer and do a clean printer Add? DeviceManager does not show any printers.

A:Multple Printers -no print

You can try to uninstall from control panel. You can try search by start menu, type in the printer and delete all reference. When you installed Win was the printer connected, if so you can try a repair install and conncect only monitor, modem and keyboard.

Recently, I moved a large amount of my CD collection to my PC, and then on to an MP3 players for portability. Problem is, differences in volume levels between tracks are MUCH more pronounced when playing back from the player using small portable speakers then what you might notice playing back from the PC. I'm not sure why some songs are louder than others, but it's annoying to be playing a song at a regular volume, and then the next comes on and you have to turn it up to hear. Then the next song blares. Is there a program I can use where I can choose a volume level (in the way you can with say Audacity) but be able to make that change on a lot of files at once? Like a batch edit. That way, i won't spend literally days editing each song and so that every song is the save level...

 I recieved my new ThinkCentre M920s and noticed two defects shown above in the photos:- 1. The headphone jack appears pushed to the side with a sharp copper wire sticking out of the hole 2. The vent to the right appears bent and misshapen My question is, am I being too picky about build quality or are these legitimate issues? Are they even issues at all actually or is there a legitimate reason that a sharp copper wire should be to the side of the headphone jack? Is the vent to the right bent and misshapen or is it supposed to be "curved" or something? I spent over 1250 ($1630 American) on just the tower alone, so I expected a premium product. Thoughts appreciated!

Hello, I have had random recurring BSODs for the past year and a half with a new build. It started with Windows 8.1 and has continued with Windows 10. The BSOD's always occur on wake from sleep, but not every time. The problem occurs with or without the video card. I have replaced memory and tested it with Memtest86 for 24+ hours with no errors, RMA's the motherboard for a replacement and replaced the power supply. I still get the BSODs. I have done several clean installs and have been unable to fix the problem. I am thinking it might be the CPU, but testing with Intel tools shows no problems.

My problem?
I have loads of data (hundreds of files), in *.txt files, that I want to organize in Excel.
The files are named by date and an item nummer e.g. 080130;13 (the 13th sample from 2008/01/30).

Hello all..

So here's my issue. I have a client who purchased about 15 new pc's. We imaged them all and they seem to be working fine. About a week ago my site contact informed that 10 outta the 15 pc's now have solid hard drive lights all them time. The computers work fine. They are fast and do not have insane processes running. The one issue is when you go to restart or shut them down.... At that point it goes through the shutdown sequence...to the point where the monitors attached will shut off....but power remains on the pc. The pc's need to be forced down in order to power them off. Once you power them on, the light is not solid right away, but will go solid after a day or so. Any ideas on what's going on would be appreciated.

By the way all the machines are Lenovo Thinkcentres.

My computer was infected a few weeks ago with a brower hijacker. It pops up ads all over the place and often opens new windows or tabs begging me to download more of its kind. Needless to say, very annoying. I ran a whole bunch of anti mal/spyware programs on it, multple times each and they found a fair bit. It was all quarintined/scrubbed, but i'm still seeing symptoms. The only unifying bit of info I get is at the bottom of everything is a little "ads by info"
Point of entry:
Me trusting torrented games. 
I know, I know. Kinda deserve this.
What has been done:
First went through with Revo uninstaller and scrubbed anything I didn't recall putting on.
Scanned with Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avast, AVG, Spybot S&D, Super Anti Spyware and ADWcleaner.
Windows 7 64bit SP1
Any advice on what to do for a user who Fkd up?

A:Browser has been Hijacked with "ads by info." persists despite multple scans

In many cases these issues are the result of unwanted toolbars, add-ons/plug-ins, and browser extensions which come bundled with other free software (often without the knowledge or consent of the user). They can be the source of various issues and problems to include adware, pop-up ads, browser hijacking which may change your home page/search engine, and cause user profile corruption.
As such they are generally classified as Potentially Unwanted Programs (PUPs) and many of them can be removed from within its program group Uninstall shortcut in Start Menu > All Programs or by using Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs) in Control Panel, so always check there first. With most adware/junkware it is strongly recommended to deal with it like a legitimate program and uninstall from Programs and Features or Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. In most cases, using the uninstaller of the adware not only removes it more effectively, but it also restores many changed configuration settings.
Alternatively, you can use a third-party utility like Revo Uninstaller Free or Portable and follow these instructions for using it. Revo will do a more thorough job of searching for and removing related registry entries, files and folders.
Remove anything else (newly installed programs) you do not recognize.
The next place to check is your browser extensions and add-ons/plug-ins.

Just received the new M910s SFF machine I purchased a few weeks back from Allstarshop.com (because Lenovo was "sold out" and not even accepting orders for them at that time). I had also bought some extra "add-on" hardware parts from online retailers, expecting no problem at all installing them.  Note that I checked again today, and Lenovo is once again accepting orders for the M910s SFF machines.  So that problem is behind us.
Well... surprise. I had unexpected problems and trouble with 2 out of the 3 add-on hardware items I bought for the M910s, so I wanted to share my experience to give others who might have a similar project in the works a heads-up.
(1) The 10MK000QUS Kaby Lake i5-7500 machine was factory configured with 1x8GB of DDR4-2400 memory, Win10 x64 Pro, 1TB 7200rpm 2.5" SATA3 HDD, and optical CD/DVD drive.
(2) I added an additional 1x8GB of matching DDR4-2400 memory purchased from Crucial.  No problem.  Works perfectly, and the machine is now 2x8GB=16GB operating in dual-channel mode as expected.
(3) I had purchased a Gigabyte low-profile GTX-1050ti graphics card for use in the new machine, not expecting any problems. Well, it turns out there IS a problem, because this card at a length of 6.57" (167mm) is just bit too long.  The swing-up drive bay assembly inside the SFF case doesn't quite have the needed <167mm clearance in order to close properly with the graphics card installed.  It needs maybe just a...

A:M910s M920s SFF: M.2 SSD and graphics surprises/problems (SOLVED: M910t with GTX 1050 installed)

Remarkably, the "local express" delivery from Newegg got here about noon!  Amazing.
But sadly, the Zotac 1050ti card which was 160mm (6.3") in length is STILL TOO LONG.
So, much to my disappointment, it appears Lenovo has reduced the internal space in these new SFF cases, making it just about impossible to use almost all graphics cards.  I have installed Sapphire R7-250 low-profile / HD7750 cards in multiple M93p SFF and M800 SFF machines, and had no problem whatsoever, even though that card is 170mm (6.7").
Obviously the previous generation of SFF cases simply was larger.  The SFF cases now being used for the M910s are just too small.  If I'd known this I probably would have gone with the tower machine, if only to be able to use my intended GTX 1050ti graphics card (which could have been full-size in the tower).
Anyway, I've now ordered a lesser graphics card than I'd intended, the MSI version of the low-profile GTX 750ti. because it's length is only 5.75" (146mm), which absolutely will fit.  But this card only has DVI and HDMI connections, thus lacking a DisplayPort connector.  It's also only 2GB of DDR5 memory instead of 4GB as in the 1050ti, and with a slower core clock speed.  Bandwidth is 86GB/s vs. 112GB/s for the 1050ti.  Thankfully, there is at least one of these relatively modern DDR5 cards which is short enough to fit even if it's not the 1050ti.
But it will physically fit, which in the end ... Read more

I was finally able to find a proper card that fits the M910 SFF.
This is the only card currently on the market the supports the latest HTPC 4K/8K specification (H feature set: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia_PureVideo) and its size is small and short enough to be installed inside M910 SFF.
It is also only 30W TDP, which is just a bit more than the original Nvidia GT 730 that was pre-installed.
Quite happy with this awesome system.
Hope this helps.
Mod:  since the M710s uses the same case, this particular Gigabyte GT 1030 will also fit it (other GT 1030 models, at this time, are too long.)  Topic also applies to the M720s and M920s as they use the same case. 
Mod:  moved to it's own thread and edited Subject line accordingly.  Mea culpa for having mistakely called it a GTX 1030.


Go to Solution.

A:M710s M910s M720s M920s SFF: successfully installed GT 1030 (HTPC, 4K monitor TV, graphics)

I would recommend that you'd best prepare yourself to be disappointed with your "coming soon" M910s SFF machine, in that I am at least reasonably skeptical that there is sufficient "clearance" for almost any "modern" decent add-on graphics card which can fit inside the newly narrowed (i.e. the SFF case is now shortened front-to-rear by almost 4" from all previous SFF cases) SFF case.  The 4" reduction essentially reduces the interior expansion card clearance by 4", i.e. similarly reducing the new maximum size card length that can be used in the M910s.
You should read this thread of mine which I posted a few months back regarding these very issues with an M910s SFF I'd ordered and three different graphics cards I tried to install, but all of which would not fit.  I believe the new maximum size expansion card is only around 5.75", whereas with all previous SFF cases you could install a card that was probably up to 6.8" without an issue.  Most graphics cards are 6.25" - 6.75" and as long as they are low-profile they can all be used.
No longer.  I think the maximum length card is now about 5.75".  And your GT1030 is 5.9" long and 2.7" tall.  Doesn't sound like much of a difference, but it just might be the straw that broke the camel's back.
The problem is the swing-up/down drive bay assembly inside the SFF case, which in its full "snapped down/closed/locked" position has to clear the end of the expansion graphics card.  With... Read more

Monitors. I didn't know where else to post this. Are LED or LCD displays better? Which give the best picture? I know LCD displays have a more natural look, but what about LED? What's better for gaming?

A:LED or LCD displays?

LCD and LED are one and the same.

LED just refers to the type of back right used.
Some tft monitors use cathodes which is a form of neon light.
these tend not to have very good grey scales and or blacks. they can also look a little washed out.

LED backlights are basically a panel behind the lcd full of hundreds of LEDs. this makes the display bright and vivid, as well as offering amazing black and white colours.

the main types of monitors avaliable are TN and IPS. both have pros and cons, TN tending to be the cheaper but often has faster responses.
IPS monitors look better, have better colours and better viewing angles, but are expensive in comparison.

Adjusting the screen with the buttons on the front of your monitor may help. Consult your monitors documentation for more information or check their website.

Hi, people!
The task I want to accomplish is rather simple, but I am having a hard time trying to find a way to do it:
How can I show the same image (the right half of an "extended desktop") through both the 15-pin VGA and the HDMI connectors of a Windows 8 Notebook PC, while simultaneously showing the left half of this "extended desktop" on the built-in display of the Notebook?
As a teacher, I need this configuration for my lectures.
The details:
On the lecturer's desk, I have my notebook PC (a Panasonic SX2 with Windows 8 / Intel Core i7-3540M / Intel HD Graphics 4000). The built-in display of the Notebook shows me the left half of an "extended desktop". On this display i can switch between my notes and different application windows (PDF Reader, Internet Browser, Media player, Spreadsheets, Picture Viewer, etc.)
During my lecture, at certain moments I will share text, pictures, web pages, or videos with the audience by swapping diferent application windows between my notebook's display and a data projector (connected to the Notebook's 15-pin VGA output). The projector shows the other half of my "extended desktop" on a big screen to the audience.
Now, while I speak to the audience about the data I am projecting, I need to look at both my Notebook's built-in display and the data being projected.
But the problem here is that, from my location at the lecturer's desk, I can hardly see the screen, which is hanging over my head... Read more

A:how to set up 3 displays?

Hi there jerojero, and welcome!

Interesting setup you've got there, I do volunteer tech work at a school and I have to say I've never seen something like what you're trying to set up

My guess here is that the graphics card doesn't allow using two types of signals (digital (HDMI) and analog (VGA)) at the same time, or simply the PC manufacturer has added some kind of restriction.

In your case, what I would do first is run a driver update on the integrated graphics. If still it doesn't work, I'd opt for a solution like this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0073V9R3U

It'll simply duplicate the image that comes out of your VGA port without further taxing your CPU. Killing two birds with one Stone

Happy lectures!

Hey Guys,

Am I right in thinking I shouldn't of purchased this item XFX HD 5450 512MB DDR2 VGA DVI HDMI Out PCI-E Graphics.. | Ebuyer.com. I ordered it to try and get displays working. One HDMI, The second DVI and the third VGA. Im having trouble getting the third monitor working.

The reason I purchased this card was that it stated it supported ATI Eyefinity. However, im confused and don't know what to try now. What do you guys reckon, or should I send it back and get a card with display port. IM confused.

Any help will be muchly appreciated.

A:3 displays

You bought the wrong card. Doesn't help that ebuyer has the wrong specs listed for it though. For Eyefinity at least with a card from XFX you need this one,

XFX HD 5450 1GB SDDR3 VGA DVI Display Port Out PCI-E.. | Ebuyer.com

as that feature is only available on one of their models. Straight from XFX's page for the 5450,

ATI Eyefinity Requirements

Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating system (Eyefinity is not supported in Windows XP)
A graphics card with at least one native DisplayPort output
Display with native DisplayPort

Use of an certified active DisplayPort adapter is required to convert the DisplayPort output on the graphics card to an output compatible to the display when more than two displays are used in a multi-display configuration (available for purchase separately)

ATI Eyefinity technology with support for up to three displays - only supported on HD-545X-ZAF2 with DisplayPort (1,4)
ATI Stream technology (2)

Graphic Cards - ATI Radeon HD 5000 - ATI Radeon

I have two user ID's on MSN Messenger, the one I use most shows display pictures at the side of the contact name and when you enter into conversation with a contact you can see each other

I have recently started using using the other ID and although there is a display picture at the top of the window, its is not against my contact list, nor when I open up conversation with a contact can I see them or they see me? Not even the little blue standard icon for people who do not have pictures, there is just no option there at all to show a picture

I have tried all I can think, like check settings and the box is not ticked to hide display picture, any ideas anyone, would be very welcome


A:MSN Messenger Displays

only thing i can think of is to check the setting u have for both. u mite have icons for display removed..if they're both the same then not sure..

I'm running W2K (SP4) & IE6 (SP1). I don't know what I did but now my history bar is now showing index.dat files vs. standard links. I tried looking for the repair, but under the Install/Remove I do not get that option. I have tried to remove and then reinstall but there was no change (I didn't re-boot between processes, but was never prompted, so I didn't).

Any ideas on the best route for getting the browser to read the .dat files?


A:IE6 (SP1) History displays .dat (W2K)

Don't have an answer for your dat question but try clicking Start\Run\msinfo32 and click tools for the IE Repair function.

I just installed a new SSD and moved my OS onto it, however now I can't start my computer with both of my displays plugged in (1 HDMI and 1 DVI). The main display (HDMI) will flash on and off while the DVI does not receive any signal, until I unplug the DVI and then the computer starts like normal. Both displays work just fine after it has booted.

My display driver is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950, and it is up-to-date as of the time I'm posting this. The Nvidia control panel recognizes both displays and has the HDMI selected as the main display without me having to touch it.

I could boot with both displays plugged in before I installed the SSD.

I did a clean install of Windows (not cloning) originally on the SSD and even tried to re-install again to see if it would fix it and it does not.

The only option in BIOS related to display is to go back to my processor's integrated graphics instead of my Nvidia card, but this really should not be related to the issue at all as both the DVI and HDMI are plugged directly into the Nvidia card's ports.

Something I found very weird when I was checking the BIOS is that if on boot I go to BIOS, exit, and proceed to boot, it works just fine. But not if I just do a normal boot.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad T430 and a ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3 with USB 3.0 type 4337. I am trying to run the built in display plus two monitors. One is connected through the dock via VGA and the other is connected throught the dock via DVI. This setup should work, as my co worker has the same set up and equipment, but for some reason, I cannont get more than 2 displays to work at once. Device manager sees all of them, but the Intel Display Manager for the Intel HD 4000 only has two displays that I can chose, but I can choose whichever of the 3 screens, so clearly it knows that they are all there.  How do I get it to use all 3 screens as an extended desktop? Any help is appriciated.

Hi Guys and Gals

Don't know if I can do this but here goes!

I have a Dell Dimension 3000 - 1 gig RAM - old PCI cards, onboard video, SoundBlaster Audigy, lots
of USB External Devices, using about 10 ports and a view Sonic 22" Widescreen Monitor set at 1680 x 1050 for videos and such.

I am writing web pages and try to write them in such a way that they change for various monitors and resolutions using Java Scripts so that the page will read without scrolling.

What I would like to do is emulate any smaller monitor and resolutions on my 22" to see how the page looks on that monitor.

Does anyone know of software that would allow this?

Or a better way to setup my pages I'm a novice at webmastering.

TY - Mike McDonald - Micario out heah!

A:Changing Displays

Why not just install a secondary monitor with standard resolution? If you buy a 1280x1024 LCD, you can set it to lesser resolutions and still have good enough video quality to test what you're doing.

Is there a cmd command that displays this box:

I have my backup configure and would like to put that box as a shortcut. I can start the backup with sdclt.exe /KICKOFFJOB but that does not display any info.

Boot Straps

A:Is there a cmd command that displays this?

I don't use the backup tool, but suspect that there's no direct way to launch that box - it has to be launched by running the backup program.

Found this at the following link ( Vista File Backup can not find drive after change of media (0x81000006) ) - search for the string below to find the exact context:

%systemroot%\system32\rundll32.exe /d sdengin2.dll,ExecuteScheduledBackup

I'm trying to help my Aunt with her internet explorer. She's using IE 6.0 with Windows XP. All of the website displays seem to be incomplete as far as background colors and even content. Words are sometimes missing, the margins seem narrow, content of stocks in Yahoo finance appears for a moment than moves well down on the site unless she has her font set to smallest. Any ideas?

My Y520 is calibrated using the Spyder 5.  All colors except red appear to be accurate.  It seems to me that the display cannot display red since no adjustments in Lightroom or Photoshop achieve a true red color. Is this normal for this display or is it defective?
