My monitors seem to be detected in incorrect order!?!?

Q: My monitors seem to be detected in incorrect order!?!?

Maybe someone can help me. I have a GTX295, and my main monitor is plugged into the right plug while my TV into the left. For Nvidia the right plug (when facing front of the computer) was always considered Monitor #1, for what ever reason...

The strange thing is that these new Nvidia drivers seem to mess things up... Although While booting the post shows only on (2nd plug) which is monitor 1, while in Windows it detects it backwards... It detencs 2nd plug as monitor 2...

Does this make any sense?? It's really annoying. Is there a way of changing this??

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: My monitors seem to be detected in incorrect order!?!?

You can open your display settings and select the monitor you want as primary and then check the box to set as primary underneath.

For the past 2 days, when booting, the screen shows a pic of the BIOS screen instead of a normal boot.

It says to press F1 for setup, but this does nothing.

I then go to BIOS and I see that it is set to boot from DVD drive, which is of course incorrect.

I change it to boot from SSD( which has the OS) and then a screen says

Repair . It then starts normally.

This started after I installed a 3tb HDD ( storage), although I can't see what that would have to do with that and is probably coincidental.

MOBO - Asus P8z77-v

On the next boot, same problem.

Thanks,

Paul

A:Boot order incorrect

Setup is same as BIOS. Pic should be full screen logo or some similar setting in BIOS, search for it.

Un-plug PC from the power mains, and change SSD to the first port (SATA-0 or SATA-1, check motherboard manual)
Go into BIOS and load defaults (either first screen or exit menu)
Set BIOS options (Boot order, SATA operation mode etc)

See if this will help

Hope someone at dell can help me resolve this (Service Request Number 940696238).
At the end of November, I placed an order for an XPS 13 with i7 processor and 16gb memory.
On  11/22/2016, I received the order but found that it came with a 8gb memory instead of 16gb.
Contacted customer support and the agent agreed to send out a replacement unit.
On 12/14/2016, received the replacement unit, but it also had 8gb memory instead of 16gb.
Contacted customer support again and reported the issue.  The agent said another replacement unit would be sent out shortly, and emailed me return labels for the two units I already received.  The agent also told me I could return the two units AFTER I received the replacement unit.
On 12/22/2016, received an email from a customer support sr. associate named Siddharth Mondal, saying the replacement unit had been delivered according to tracking information and asking whether everything is fine.  He was obviously not aware of my situation about the two incorrectly-configured laptops.  I emailed back saying the replacement unit again has the wrong memory size.  However, soon after that, I checked the support request status via dell website and the status says the case is closed.
Bottom line: Sitting here with two wrong orders (original plus replacement) and two return labels for them, still without the correct order, and the support request appears to be closed.

A:Installed the Drivers in the Incorrect Order - Please Help

I replied to your other post and you should just added to that rather than start a new thread.
The only thing that is the "wrong order" is the Chipset Driver are installed before the device drivers.  The chipset drivers define (identify) the devices on the motherboard thus without the chipset drivers many devices will not function. 
If the chipset drivers were skipped, in most cases they can be installed, the PC restarted and then any missing device drivers (e.g. sound) can be installed.  In a few cases it will take a new/correct sequence install to get everything working.  But give this a try first.  You should only have to install the sound driver and possibly the Ethernet driver.
HERE is the Dell downloads for the 8300 and Windows XP.   Download each needed driver direct, DO NOT use the Dell download manager.

Hi
I have some encounted an error (UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME) and I need to reinstall my Win XP. I only have Win XP Cd. But my computer doesnt seem to detect the cd that is in CD-ROW.
I have tried to change the BIOS order. This is what I did to change it. (P.S. I am not sure if I am really changing the boot order or not, that is why I listed out the steps that I have done)
- Press "Del" to Setup
- Go to "BOOT"
- Then see a list like this:
1. Removable Device [legacy floppy]
2. IDE Hard Drive [WDC WD400BB-00DEA07]
3. ATAPI CD-ROW [ARTEC WRA-WA48]
4. Other Boot Device [INT18 Device (Network)]
- Change ATAPI CD-ROW to the top of the list.
-Restarted computer

Result: My computer didn't recongize there is a CD in CD-ROW......
Please help. Thanks~
P.S. I dont have the SIX Win XP start up disks, and I'm not able to get that thing in short peroid of time. Thus, using CD disk is the only way I have to reinstall Win XP.

I have tried 2 different usb wireless adapters on my desktop to "associate" with my westell model 327W router connected (& functioning (from verizon dsl) to my laptop & the ssid is detected correctly but the MAC does not match the router's MAC! Both of the adapters I've tried (NETGEAR & Linksys) detect the same MAC. Again, the ssid matches my routers' but the MAC is incorrect (according to the bottom of the router). What can I do? Argh!

If you're report is correct, then likely that you are discovering a nearby neighbor's router with the same ssid.

you should use a wire connect, access the router and change the ssid to something

Monitors not detected

I recently changed my 15inch tft monitor for two 17inch ones plugging them both into my graphics card. They worked fine and there was no problem at all. After switching off my computer and booting it back up again the monitors just say no signal detected. I tried using my old 15inch monitor but the same happens with that. BIOS doesn’t do the usual single beep to say everything is ok. My motherboard has a set of 5 ‘Diagnosis LEDs’ from these I can see that the POST is stopping at “system detect Video and invoke Video BIOS” and suspect that that is the cause of the problem although I don’t know how to fix it.

I first tried reseating my graphics which didn’t help then I tried resetting the CMOS using the clear CMOS jumpers but to no avail.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I have the following setup.
Alienware 17 attached to a USB 3.0 docking station from dell (4k). I then have two monitors attached to the docking station.  Everything has been working just fine for months.  
Tonight I was playing a game and I switched my monitor setup to extend my laptop screen to one of the attached monitors.  while playing windows crashed and forced a reboot.  Upon reboot none of the monitors attached to the usb are detected.  I updated both video drivers (intel, nvidia).  I then unhooked and reconnected the docking station not luck either (I did not reinstall the docking station software because I can not find it).  To make sure that it is the docking station and the computer I directly attached one monitor via the hdmi cable to the computer and it worked.  I think the issue is in the docking station.  

Other items attached to the docking station seem to work.  Keyboard mouse, speakers etc.  During the crash a memory dump was created but I can't open it with anything.  
I think a reinstall of the docking station software may work but there are no drivers on dell.  

thanks for the help

Hi there, I recently upgraded my PC in many areas, New MB, CPU, RAM, HD. I've been able to install everything perfectly, including graphic drivers. But there is one change that I have no idea how to fix. My PC is auto detecting two monitors.

It will detect new hardware and find the syncmaster monitor, but immediately after it also detects a default monitor. I've never had this problem before, and at first I didn't think anything of it, until I go into any graphical program. At which point I am greeted with flickering colours all around the screen. I've checked through everything, and it's all functioning fine. Except for this dual Monitor problem.

If anyone has any suggestions for how to deal with/ fix this problem it would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Hi, first, thank you for any help you can provide. I truly appreciate it.

I run an AMD HD 5570 video card that I use a 4 into 1 connector and run 4 monitors. Two Acers, two ViewSonics. This setup has been working perfectly fine for years. Suddenly the other day one of the ViewSonic monitors had a stretched look to it, and when I tried to adjust the resolution I saw that it's being detected as generic non-PNP monitor and I can't adjust the resolution up any more. Stuck at 1600x1200 and it should be 1920x1080 like my other ViewSonic and like the screwed up one always was.

I tried doing the whole powering off, unplugging, restarting, many many times. I think that actually worked in the past for me, but not anymore. I tried uninstalling the driver for my video card, reinstalling, tried removing the monitor in the device manager, etc.

Swapped cables, still doesn't work. It seems like the computer is just refusing to recognize it properly, I don't think it has anything to do with the monitor or the cable though.

Any ideas?

Thank you.

Hi all,

I have a new machine that I have installed Win7 64bit (build 7100) and am having issues with the system detecting and selecting as my primary display monitors that dont exist.

I am running 2 Gigabyte GTX275s in SLI and have a Samsung 2443BW LCD via a single DVI cable. Nothing is plugged into the other connectors.

I wouldn't usually care if there were other disconnected displays being detected but my problem is it seems to randomly detect a range of monitors at each startup and pick one to be the primary display leaving my monitor blank. The screen will flash 3 or 4 times making the windows sound when you connect new hardware.

I have tried another monitor and get the same result.

It is quite frustrating when you have to reboot the system often 3 times before you can get a desktop (an extended one still) so you can get to the display properties and make corrections that dont seem to last after a reboot.

I have tried both the 186.18 and 190.15 Nvidia drivers.

Sometimes even into either the change the screen resolution or nvidia control panel will sometimes cause it to refresh all the monitors it detects and i can be left with a blank screen.

I hope I have given enough detail for someone to be able to assist.

Thanks

A:Multiple monitors detected & utilised when only have 1

Hi Adam and welcome to the forums.

I had a similar problem of a mysterious 3rd display appearing (I have two) yesterday when I was setting up my crossfired 4890's.

I eventually sorted it all by uninstalling the drivers, running driver sweeper in safe mode, removing one card and re-installing the drivers with just a single card. Then I re-added the second card.

Hello, I have read several different threads all over the internet regarding a resolution problem in Windows 7 that has to do with the resolution, refresh rate, etc. I have tried to force a "custom" resolution using nVidia's Control panel, but it doesn't seem to do anything to fix the issues.

I have 2x22" monitors, and while using Windows XP, there was never a problem such as this.

It seems as if the monitor that is labeled as "Monitor 2" cannot have a proper 16:9 resolution set, and it is making "Monitor 2" be blurry.

Monitor 1 is set to 1680x1050, which is correct and everything is clear as day, but the best I can do for monitor 2 is 1600x1024, and that just makes it blurry and difficult to read, which is an extremely bad strain on my eyes.

Any solution or tips that I can try would be great, I was hoping a new driver would solve my problem so I was waiting for one to come out, but since the newest one came out yesterday 11/26, and it's been over a month Windows 7 is out, I am losing hope, so now I must ask for help.

Thank you so much for any help!

A:Dual Monitors, Monitor 2 "Blurry" Incorrect Resolution

Hey.
1680 >>> 1600

and

1050 >>> 1024

is enough of a difference to makes things blurry? I don't think so. The difference is minute and practically indiscernable (less than 8%.)

You could try locating and installing the .inf for the 2nd monitor but 1600 might be the max resolution it can go.

You could also try making a custom res for the monitor.

I have just rebuilt my PC and decided to make the jump from Windows XP to Windows 8. The jump has not been smooth, but it looks like I have ironed out my biggest problem (incorrect installation due to not creating a system partition therefore WIN8 = no DVD, no boot; rookie error).

Now I am stuck with an issue that is a real pain - windows detects my only screen as more than one. Sometimes it thinks I have two, more often it thinks I have 3 or 4. Installing the current nVidia drivers did not help.

What I have at the moment is 2 generic non-PnP monitors and 2 generic PnP monitors detected, according to device manager. nVidia control panel calls them Dell SX2210, VGA display, (i can't recall the 3rd one, I'm on my laptop now), and TV. Windows display setup calls two of the SX2210, and the other two are either generic non-PnP or PnP monitors. In nVidia control panel it looks as though I have a clone setup (2 screens enabled) with the Dell SX2210 and the VGA display. In windows display setup it looks as though I have a clone setup (2 screens enabled) with Dell SX2210 and generic monitor.

I have repeatedly unchecked the secondary monitors in both nVidia control panel and windows display setup, leaving me with what should be a single monitor arrangement and 3 disabled monitors. This works until I restart my computer, which then reverts back to what it was before. This is OK as a workaround most of the time, but sometimes when I boot up the computer it detects the wrong s...

The Windows Photo Viewer will not display photos in the order they are sorted by Windows Explorer.
This is not referring to the slide show feature, just the forward and back arrows.
The only order pictures can be viewed is by name despite Windows Explorer being set at view by date, ascending.
I have repaired Microsoft Live Essentials, uninstalled and reinstalled but the issue remains.
This is also not an issue with photo tags or photo names.
Windows Explorer sorts as selected but click a picture in the middle to view, click the forward arrow and instead of the next date picture being viewed, the next name picture is viewed.

A:Windows Photo Viewer; sorting order not the same as view order

Hi!

I upgraded to Windows 10 recently as well, I have the same problem and I also have a solution. However, I do not know, if it is ideal. :-)

What is obviously missing is an entry in the registry called DropTarget. This entry tells Windows Photo Viewer to display the images in the sorting order of the folder Photo Viewer got called from.

Non-solution:
I saw that at least in my registry there is a DropTarget defined in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\photoviewer.dll\shell\open\DropTarget. From the name of the key and from reading the docs this looks as if it would be applied to all calls to this program, but -if that actually is the case- for me this entry does not work. It has been there (at least) after my Windows 10 upgrade, also the "Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}" seems to be fine, but it does not do the job.

Solution:
For me, this problem was present for jpg and png files, but not for bmp, dib, gif, jfif and what else can be opened with Windows Photo Viewer. To fix this, I have added the following to the Windows Registry:


Code:
[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\jpegfile\shell\open\DropTarget]
"Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}"

"Clsid"="{FFE2A43C-56B9-4bf5-9A79-CC6D4285608A}"

Now if someone could tell me why windows 8 won't fill the screen at the resolution recommended for my 23" monitor I'd be good!

I have an ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon 9600 video card. It's been working properly for quite awhile and now suddenly the cursor moves to the second monitor when I drag the cursor beyond the bottom of the first monitor.

It used to go from one monitor to the other by dragging it from left-to-right. I can't figure out what caused it to start doing this or how to go about getting it back to the way it was before. Any ideas how to change it back. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you!

Over the last 6 months I purchased my teen son a Creative DVD Drive for his Compaq Presario as well as a Creative Audigy MP3+ Sound Card and the Creative/Cambridge DTT3500 6 Speaker Dolby 5.1 Sound System .... {the things kids get today ... you can send your donations to .....} ... Anyway, he was the basic 15" Compaq Monitor that came with the system and of course he is now nagging me that this monitor "is a heap of crap & how do you expect me to enjoy all this great stuff you bought me with this tiny monitor when I am trying to watch Britney Spears Concerts ....." ..... So my question to you all is that, if I ever pay off Visa, and can purchase him a new monitor, I want to purchase the largest, best quality for the dollar monitor I can afford ($1.25)
What do you suggest? What is the scoop with the Flat Monitors he is driving me nuts with? How do LCD monitors measure up?
Please keep in mind that my main concern is his viewing of DVD's, Music Video Files (Mpeg) that he downloads & the zillion games he has. According to the specs on his Presario (Model 5BW130) ... he has an Intel Celeron T 667MHz 66MHz Bus Speed, 64 RAM (yes I will double that to 128 via Crucial.Com ASAP), GRAPHICS=Intergrated Direct AGP Graphics - 64 bit hardware accelerated 3D graphics, Maxium non-interlaced resolution of up to 1600x1200 (when supported by monitor).

If you require any additional information please advice!

Thank you in advance for your time & effort!

I am successfully running 1 external monitor (HDMI), and I am now considering trying to use as a 2d external monitor a Lenovo L192 monitor that is now available to me. Is this possible, and if so, how would I go about doing this? Since the Lenovo's cabling is VGA, I will certainly need an adapter, presumably to USB-C or USB-3.1. But are there any other considerations/limitations that I need to take into account? Thanks for any help that you can give!

Hi JoeSchmoe! Just to clarify, could you provide to us the model of the computer you are trying to use on the monitors? Using an adapter doesn't guarantee that it will be detected so it will be best to use an adapter from Lenovo like this: https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/accessories/acc100239. You can check the user guide from the link provided.

I'm running 2 pc's on windos xp pro, I have a d-link wireless N router, and i just can't use my pc which is connected through the wireless part of the router.

The other PC has an USB wireless adapter.
PS: i've tried restarting the router/moden, to no avail.

Anyone got any ideas ?

Having just upgraded from XP using the Nvidia dual monitor desktops for years, I was surprised to find Windows 7 has this feature in-built with the added bonus of slideshow desktop images C00L!
So beyond Win7 eye candy which is better, Does it come down to games running faster under the Nvidia dual desktops, what is the general preference here?

A:Is Nvidia dual monitors a poor cousin to Windows 7 dual monitors?..

afaik, there is no real performance difference, as all stuff is handled by the nvidia driver anyway.

And of course the more monitors the higher performance hit as there is more screen surface to work on (the same as increasing resolution).

Btw, the main pityfall of the multiple monitors is that the taskbar is only in the primary monitor, but there are a ton of good third party programs that can handle this, like Actual Multiple Monitors.

Today Norton Antivirus began to block threats from Trojan.Zeroaccess.B, Trojan.Gen, Trojan.Gen.2, and Trojan.Zeroaccess.C. I have been prompted to do a manual removal of Trojan.Zeroaccess!inf4 from c:\windows\system32\services.exe. Additionally, Bitcoinminer is being repeatedly detected, blocked and quarantined. I'm not sure if Norton is having a problem deleting/quarantining Bitcoinminer, or if it is actually being downloaded over and over. I suspect that these two problems are related, as they started at the same time.

From what I gather, the fix seems to be quite complicated and I would appreciate some help.

My system is running 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium w/ SP 1. Looking at similar threads, it looks like I'll need to use a flash drive to run removal tools. I do not currently have a flash drive on hand, but I do have an 4 GB SD card. Will that be a sufficient replacement?

I have a Lenovo T410s - 29123RU BIOS - V1.5 (6UET70WW) 2012-10-11 - (updated from V1.1 this morning hoping it wold solve the problem)ECV - 1.14MTM - 29123RUCPU - Intel Core i5 M520 @ 2.4GHzRAM - DDR3 - 4GBx2 - PC3-10600s This laptop uses a 250GB - 1.8" Micro Sata HDDTOSHIBA MK2529GSG - 250GB - HDD1F07 M BL02 The other day the laptop was running fine then all of a sudden crashed.  I tried to reeboot and i got -  ERROR 2100: HDD0 (HARD DISK DRIVE) INITIALIZATION ERROR (2)PRESS ESC TO CONTINUE I have run scans on the drive itself using: HD Tune ProHDD RgeneratorCrystalDiskInfoTestDiskUBCD- ViVard v4.0- TAFT v1.2Passmark BurIn Test Pro v8.1 All the tests came back excellent which lead me to see if it was a BIOS issue.  I downoaded the updated v1.5 this morning and replaced the original v1.1.  No change in HDD detection. What really puzzles me is that when i use an OS through my USB or USB-SSD, they detect the drive and I am able to read/write to the entire drive without any loss of data or S.M.A.R.T. errors.  I just can't use this as my primary drive anymore because it will not initialize with BIOS.  I am hoping that I do not need to replace the MOBO as they go from $50 - $150 US plus shipping.   OS's used:Win10x64Win7x64WinXPWin98SELinuxMintBT5-R3KaliLinuxUBCD - FreeDOS - LINUXDoss6.22 Any thoughts on this issue would be greatly appreciated

It sounds like something is timing out.  It is hard to be sure without swapping either the drive or the MB.  You might go into the BIOS and select diagnostic mode for boot.  That would do a memory test and it might slow things down enough to mask the problem

Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

That's what the system said, in DOS, on the black screen. Of course, I had my mouse and keyboard unplugged at the time, because I had just unplugged everything to move the computer.

Anyways, I plugged the keyboard and mouse in, restarted the computer, and everything started normally.

My question is, what is with this error? Vista can't boot up if I don't have a keyboard and mouse plugged in? It's not a big deal, but it seems like very odd behavior.
 

A:Keyboard not detected, Mouse not detected. Fatal Error, System Halted.

This has nothing to do with Vista whatsoever. As you said it showed up on the black screen with white text, which is the boot screen. The computer hasnt even started loading windows yet. The fatal eror occurs because you have no input device. The computer recognises this, and given that they are important, it puts a warning up that there is no connection.
It is completely normal, really, and whatever OS you have, its going to do the same thing.

I did a stupid thing yesterday. I downloaded an icon pack APK file on my computer to upload to my mobile. Anyway, the thing is, when I double clicked on it, BlueStacks (Android Emulator) opened up, and Avast started giving me lots of warnings about BlueStacks accessing Trojan URLs (it blocked them of course).
 
Now, the thing is: I scanned the APK file both in Malware Bytes Anti Malware and Avast (and even Malware Bytes Anti Rootkit), and it showed no virus or malware found. But when I try to attach the the same APK file as a Gmail attachment (which I read on the net detects viruses, which is why I tried it), Gmail gives me a "Virus found" error.
 
So, my question is how come such reliable antivirus / anti-malware programs like MBAM and Avast didn't detect the virus but Gmail did? And more importantly, (though I have deleted the APK file in question from my computer) is my computer safe? Or has a rootkit / trojan been installed?

I should have came to this conclusion sooner, but my current re-installation of Windows has some problems that I haven't had the time to address until now. What I need, though, is access to the repair function on the disk. However, herein lies my problem...

When I boot up, media in the drive or no media, bios does not show the drive in its list. I can still open and close the drive as if nothing is wrong there, but I cannot "boot from CD". I've reset my bios back to defaults and while the drive appeared on IDE Channel 1 in the settings, it still would not recognize ANY media while booting up.

I have the latest version of my bios. I have also tried changing cables. The drive is on an IDE channel by itself.

Once my system boots into Windows, however, the drive is recognized and acts normally as if nothing happened in bios. Media operates fine. I have checked the event viewer, and there are no entries anywhere that states my optical drive has been experiencing problems, and yes, in fact it operates just like it always does.

Can anyone help me get my bios and cdrom back together again? The problem is I just do not know where to start to solve this. I wish I could say how long this has been happening, but I really don't know as of today. There have been no hardware changes in the past three months, and my current installation and configuration began back in late April.

Thanks for your time...
 

A:CD/DVDROM drive - not detected by bios, detected by Windows?

What is the boot sequence in the bios? should be CD or optical drive first, then Hard Drive or IDE-0 second if you want to boot from the cd-drive. Many computer manufacturers set the computer to automatically boot off of the hard drive by default so setting the factory defaults might not be what you are looking for. Look for the screen that has the boot order or sequence and just change it, exit and save settings and restart the computer with the boot cd in the drive. I hope that helps.

Hi guys,

I bought a bluetooth dongle off of amazon so I could use my bluetooth headset with my comp. Once plugged in it installs driver version 6.1.7601.17889 from microsoft and there are no yellow '?'s. When I look for devices it sees my headset no probs but will not connect, which it does instantly with phones / tablets etc.

A very detailed search has brought me to the conclusion that it's a problem with the bluetooth driver, not the headset. Unfortunately there are no identifiers on the dongle itself but device manager seems to think it's:

Device type: Bluetooth Radios
Manufacturer: Cambridge Silicon Radio Ltd

Is there anyway I can detect exactly the chipset in the dongle and get the correct drivers installed? Or am I barking up the wrong tree completely?

Thanks.
