Dual Monitor single cable

Q: Dual Monitor single cable

Hi

My question after thinking a lot is very simple... Does anyone know if there exists a cable that splits in two in one of the ends, or should I say a triple cable? Is it possible if it exists to link two monitors at the same pc with one only video card? turning the pc view with two monitors.

thanks

i have only one monitor, and somehow it is being treat as though its the secondary monitor in a dual monitor set up.

i cannot view my start menu, or view any programs being opened, as when i try to open them, they presumeably open on the phantom primary monitor.

even when i try to open display settings, i cannot see the box.

i am able to move my mouse to the left border of the screen and move it off into oblivion, and occasionally drag random folders and short cuts over to view.

if anyone can walk me through how to fix this (im not very good with computers, beyond playing games it would be appreciated.

im on my gf's mac right now to write this post, as my pc cant do anything at the moment.

Hi guys! I've been coming across an issue lately and wanted to get some insight as to what exactly is going on. I'm guessing it's the video card, and all my drivers for it are up to date, but I want to make sure.

The first time this happened was on 5/31/2014(see attached screenshot). It's happened a total of 4 times in the past two weeks and always at the same instance. I have a single monitor plugged into my video card(HD 6850) and also have my TV plugged in as well for when I want to watch movies and such. Typically I am running my PC in dual monitor mode(duplicate screens) even when the TV is off but when I turn to TV on these past 4 times, the screen flashes black as normal, but instead of both screens appearing again in tandem the TV is blank and my pc monitor now has a GSOD. I've attached another screenshot as well from 6/4/2014.

It does not happen every time but as I noted it's done this 4 times. As instructed I've also attached my zip file with all the info from DM Log Collector. Let me know if I'm missing anything else that you need. My pc specs are in my profile as well.

Hi,

I'm currently using two 4:3 monitors of my PC, and I'd like to substitute them with one big wide screen monitor. The only thing I'm worry about is that I won't be able to have different "spaces" for my windows that they could expand to (so I could have, for example, my e-mail on the right part, and my browser on the left).

All I've found so far are virtual desktop software, but that's not what I need. I'm looking for something that splits the visible desktop into multiple parts.

Any ideas? I'm using Vista by the way

A:Dual Video Cards single monitor

You're talking about SLI (nVIdia) or CrossFire (ATI). In truth, from what I've read, you'll be better served by putting the money that you'd spend on the two video cards into one really high-end video card. There are plenty of stories about issues getting SLI systems to perform better than a single video card.

Hello,I have a teacher that would like to show a video, and work on grades at the same time using a single monitor. I thought I could just go in, and extend the screen, and all would be good. I don't see an option for extending the screen. The machine we are using is an HP5800 desktop, running Windows 7, and I have an Nvidia 8 bit add on graphics card. I tried to plug the monitor into the add on video card, and plug the projector into the onboard video card, however that didn't work. So I took the graphics card back out, and plugged the monitor in with a splitter, and then hooked the projector up. That didn't work out either. Any suggestions to make this work would be awesome!! The machine is only a 1gb ram, and 40gb hard drive. I think we are asking it to do the impossible!!Thank you in advance.

A:Would like a single monitor, to behave like dual monitors us...

fivelitregirl Sorry, but you misunderstand how the video in your PC is designed to work. Your PC has something known as Switchable Graphics, and that requires two video chipsets.When doing routine desktop stuff, the PC uses one of the graphics chips, but when more demanding work is done, like watching videos or playing video-intensive games, the PC automatically switches over to the other video chip. So, it only uses ONE video chip at a time, and switches between them. So basically, there is no way to utilize both video chips at the same time.

I did, some years ago, implement a couple of dual monitor solutions with Dell machines using a Y-Cable provided by Dell (using a DMS59 socket on the computer). I'd like to do that at home now.

I have a Radeon 7850, which has a fully populated DVI-I-plug (i.e. two monitor signals). I want to buy a DVI-Y-cable, connect two monitors to it, and let Windows 10 (1511) create a Desktop which spans these two monitors (monitors have same resolution and frequency).

Now, I read on Amazon a lot of talk that you actually cannot do that with a Y cable, you can only have the same content on both monitors. Which is the opposite of what my own experience tells me, and also seems unlogical, since there are two fully equipped data channels which can provide a horizontal resolution of at least 2560 pixels, and I have done this before, a few years ago, and it worked.

Can anyone please she some light on this for me - am I missing something? Can this be done with my graphics card and a Y-cable, or do I need some sort of active box which splits the signals onto two monitors for me?

Thank in advance for all comments!

Hi, I am building a new computer and I want to go with a dual screen setup. I was wondering if I should go with a GTX 670 2GB GPU or two Sapphire Radeon 7870s. If not specifically these cards, let me know what you think.
Is it better to have a single GPU with dual DVI output or two slightly cheaper GPUs using crossfire?

A:Dual Screen, Dual DVI GPU vs. 2 Single DVI GPUs

hi,

The only thing that changes is the graphics performance you will have.
Two Sapphire HD 7870s beat a single GTX 670, but I'm not a Crossfire fan, so I suggest you to get a faster single GPU, because a lot of applications won't use multi-GPU technology.

This one has me stumped, hoping someone can lend a hand.
(The rig in question is up to date in my system specs)

I currently run a triple monitor setup, all the monitors were purchased at the same time, and are the following model:
Asus VS247H-P 23.6-Inch LED Monitor

The three monitors are all connected to: XFX DD Radeon HD 695X (Cross-fired with an identical OEM/Model/GPU) All three are connected to a single card (which was tested out of cross-fire beforehand, and each card was tested separately)
The monitors are arranged as shown below:
1-DVI ========2-Display port to DVI (active adapter)======3-DVI
With monitor one being the far left, monitor two the center display, and monitor three the far right display.

The best way to describe the issue: There seems to be a single blue pixel on display 2 that stays in the same place, but this pixel does not show up when the color displayed is solid white, solid black, or solid red.
To rule out the usual suspects:
-All cables have been checked with new replacements (on two different rigs)
-Both cards have been tested and work properly (on two different rigs)
-The cards are NOT overclocked
-The display that shows the pixel has been tested as well (the pixel does not appear on my test rig)
-Disabling eyefinity does not resolve the issue
-Removing the second card does not resolve the issue

Basically, it is safe to use one each for my two MSI gaming r9 290s with an EVGA G2 1000w, right? They fill all the pins on the card itself. My PSU came with two of these and only three of the normal 6+2s, so I suspect it would be an odd omission if it is not supported this way.

Thanks in advance for helping here, because I am at a loss as to how to fix this. . .

I have a Panasonic 35" TV. I have a coaxial cable connected to the back input. Occasionally, the screen picture will go black, with a single line of compressed video appearing across the middle of the screen. The sound is unaffected. If I jiggle the coaxial cable slightly, usually by pushing or pulling it slightly, the problem goes away. Until I let go of the cable.

And yes, the coaxial cable is firmly screwed into the input jack.

The input jack at the back of the TV set does seem to have a little play. The metal plate containing the input jack moves slightly when pushed or pulled, and this restores the picture.

Thanks, Chris.

The current setup is a networked (CAT5e RJ45) PC located approx. 40m (accross a courtyard) from my ADSL modem/router. The cable has been in place for some time and works fine.

I need to extend the analogue phone connection (for modem Dialup) to this PC, but don't want to run a second cable, too much hassle to install etc. and can't use wireless due to interference from a nearby generator which badly degrades the connection strength.

Is it possible to split the CAT5e cable so that the existing network and the analogue/dialup connecetion both run over the same cable?

Hi, I have recently had a computer built for me with the AMD A10 5800K APU. Not knowing the limits of the dual graphics/crossfire compatibility, I installed a XFX radeon 6850 GPU. So now the APU's graphics are disabled and I'm only using the GPU because they are not compatiable. The latest GPU that is compatible with my processor is the Radeon 6670. So i'm wondering which would perform better for gaming, one XFX 6850 or my APU + Radeon 6670 dual graphics/crossfire. Thanks!
 

A:Dual Graphics or Single GPU?

Depends on the motherboard. Many motherboards disable the onboard gpu when a video card is installed. With that said, assuming you can use the onboard gpu and a video card at the same time, you are limited by the slowest chipset when running sli or crossfire. And the recommendation is typically to use two of the same cards, as mixing chipsets often doesn't work.

what is the advantage of a dual core cpu vs a single core. is a 2.4ghz cpu faster then a single core 2.8ghz? please help!
 

A:dual core vs single

A dual core cpu can run multiple programs or multi-threading from a single program faster and better than a single core. If you run two programs at once, they have to fight over one core in the single core machine. Having a dual core cpu is like having 2 cpu's in one computer, each of the two programs has it's own core to use, making the system faster. As far as clock speeds go, a single core that is clocked higher than a dual core would be faster if you were only running a single program or one that doesn't support muti-threading. But if you want to have more than one program running, a dual core would be faster, so long as it wasn't a huge difference in clock speed. Like a 2.4 dual core and a 2.8 single core are so close in clock speeds that I don't think you would notice a difference.

Most things out there now unless you are doing some serious multitasking or video/graphic rendering 1GB is plenty of memeory and you probably won't see that much of a differnence with 1.5 or even 2.

Hi Guys!...I was running Vista and Windows 7 as a dual OS on two HDDs. I have just removed the HDD with Vista on it and reverted to a purely W7 OS however, when I now bootup, I am still seeing the message on screen giving the choice of W7 or Vista. Can someone tell me how to remove this message?.
Any help will be appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Dual OS converted to single OS

One way ...

Hold the Windows logo key and press r. In the Run box type msconfig and hit Enter. On the Boot tab make sure Windows 7 is the default and delete the other entry.

A:Ram Upgrade Single or Dual Channel ??

The main thing is dual channel works with two sticks the same, if you have two empty slots, you want to find two sticks the same to add at the same time to maintain dual channel mode...

I'm upgrading the RAM on my P5Q Pro motherboard... Right now I have 3 GB total, 1 GB on slot 2 and 2GB on slot 4 running in dual channel mode.

Today I ordered a new 2GB stick. So I'll have 3 sticks of RAM on my motherboard, for a total of 5GB.

Considering that I will run 2+2GB in dual channel mode, if I add the third 1GB stick to the motherboard, will my RAM run in dual channel mode?

What is better in terms of performance? only 2+2GB or 2+2+1GB?

A:DDR2: dual or single channel?

Those two 2GB sticks will run in dual channel if you install them in the correct slots, usually the same color. Adding the 1GB stick will not harm this.

Which would perform better?

A:Single 5850 or Dual 5750?

It really depends. In some games the 5850 is faster; others, dual 5750's are faster... and in some games it's a wash.

Some important questions need to be asked in order to make a more informed decision. What size monitor are you planning on using? What PSU do you have?

If you're not going to use at least 1920x1080, then both choices would be money spent needlessly as a single 5770 would do just fine. Also, dual 5750's would require a heavier PSU: one with at least 55 amps on the +12 volt rail.

Hi

Anyone any views on which processor is the best for an entry level pc mainly for gaming.
My 2 choices are the AMD 64 AM2 3800 Athlon which runs at 2.4ghz or the AMD 64 AM2 3800 Athlon X2 which runs at 2ghz.

Personally I cant see any real advantage of having of using x2 because this pc is mainly for gaming. Im sure someone will be able to point me in the right direction.

Thanks for any help
