DisplayPort monitors have the wrong enumeration numbers

Q: DisplayPort monitors have the wrong enumeration numbers

I know that this is a year old, but I have a problem with my monitors. I have 2 DVI monitors and 2 DisplayPort monitors. For some reason, Control Panel -> Screen Resolution shows it as 2, 3, 1, 4, but when I click on Identify, they show up as 1, 3, 2, 4. The DisplayPort monitors have the wrong enumeration numbers compared to the screen resolution page. This also causes issues on my Virtual Box as Virtual Screen 1 shows up as Host Screen 1 and Virtual Screen 2 shows up as Host Screen 3. This related to 2 and 3 respectively as per the Screen Resolution page.

What's going on here and how do I fix this mess?

Greetings everyone!

This is my very first post and I come with a question. I am looking into purchasing a refurb Dell 990 SFF for basic home usage (spreadsheets, word processing, internet...no gaming or graphic/audio intensive use). The onboard graphics and Displayport is an integrated Intel HD Graphics 2000 with a Displayport 1.1a output. I currently have a monitor with Displayport in but no Displayport out so I can daisy-chain. What is the best strategy for connecting second monitor? Is the native DP 1.1a out splittable for extended desktop? Do I need to buy a DP splitter external peripheral? I should note the additional output options include an old VGA out; all USBs are 2.o. Thanks in advance.

Hello, I'm wondering if it's possible to have a dual monitors on the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 using both the VGA and DisplayPort at the same time. Will this allow me to extend the display to both monitors? If not, what will I need to purchase to gain this capability? Thanks,John

A:Using VGA in conjunction with DisplayPort for dual monitors ...

The VGA port and Display Port perform the same function just in different ways.  VGA is analog and Display Port is digital.  Unfortunately, it's not going to work the way you think.  You will be looking at the same information on two different monitors without the ability to drag and drop from one to the other.  In order to have a true dual monitor experience, you would need to purchase an inexpensive video card like the VisionTek Radeon PCI card which is specifically designed for this functionality.  This is due to the fact that the dual monitor ability has to be configured via the software that comes with the stand alone card. I hope this helps.

Hello Tech Support Guys, I have this problem for a while now and I need your assistance.
I have a GTX1060 6gb and anything I try to plug in my 3 displayports flickers, 'goes blackscreen' and shows a lot of tearing. It happens in and out of games. It doesn't happen on the DVI or the HDMI ports.

I do have a monitor that supports both HDMI and displayport, but since I use a VR headset, having to plug and unplug the HDMI cable to use VR is annoying (Oculus CV1 uses HDMI). Also, freesync would be great.

My progress so far:
**I have noticed that, the lower the resolution on the monitor (and the refresh rate), the better the displayport performs. "Great" at 1024 x 768 resolution. It's a usefull trick to use while playing in VR.
**already tried two displayport cables and two displayport to hdmi adapters.
**already tried using DDU to reinstall my nvidia drivers​

Anyone have any idea of what is happening?
Are my 3 displayports damaged?
Should I keep using the displayport or is it a risk for my monitor?

Ok...I am having problems with DisplayPort. My home HP ProDesk 600 G1 DM w/ 12Gb RAM running Windows 7 64bit and (Intel HD Graphics 4600) has two HP LA2306x monitors. The HP monitors are connected via two DisplayPorts

Problem 1: But when I power off the monitors but leave the computer running, Windows 7 losses all my desktop settings. All my icons and open windows default over to the primary screen. I have been dealing with this for two years now...when I power them back on I must move all my windows around again. Its very annoying.

I have read various threads on how to resolve this but none of them work for me.

A) I can't change the EDID setting for my Intel 4600 graphics card (if I can, I can't figure out where)
B) I have gone into the monitor menu settings and disabled the DDC/CI Support on both monitors
C) I have changed the computers power mgmt settings to NOT sleep, hibernate or anything of the sort

Problem 2:
The above really drives me nuts. However, now a new issue has occurred and the driving me nuts has turned into driving me mad. I have an external hard drive connected to this computer, I am running Samsung's SmartView so my TV can access all the movies/tv shows on that hard drive. When I power off monitors, my TV can no longer see/access the SmartView app and/or the external hard drive.

So if I am downstairs and want to stream a movie from this external hard drive, I must go back up stairs and power on the monitors.

I have two 27" 2560x1440 60hz monitors that are plugged into the new Pro side-connect dock (40AH) with a new T480 (Intel 620 integrated graphics) in Windows 10 Pro. I can get either monitor to work fine with the dock individually, but trying to run both simultaneously by extending or duplicating the desktop between them seems to fail as selecting either option under Display Settings just makes the primary monitor black out for a few seconds then come back - the secondary monitor stays black.  There's no error msg or popup that would help me investigate further unfortunately. I'm trying this with the T480's lid closed, and I'm running the latest 1.14 BIOS update and latest Intel HD graphics drivers. This setup worked fine on my old OneLink dock and X1 Carbon previously, so I don't think it's an issue with the monitors themselves. Anyone have a similar setup with the new Pro dock that's working?

I have a Dell Latitude E7450 laptop with a E-Port Plus II port replicator connected to two external monitors using DisplayPort which will not output to multiple monitors.
I have another Dell model and when placed on the port replicator with two external monitors connected, booting into BIOS/UEFI the screen is cloned onto each monitor. However, when doing the same with a brand new Dell Latitude E7450 only one screen is active - the other is off. Within Windows itself, I can only have 1 monitor connected to the port replicator. If I undock, I can run 3 monitors independently indicating an issue with the dock rather than a hardware limitation with the laptop itself.
I believe the above tests eliminates the OS or driver issue and highlights a compatibility issue between the new Dell Latitude E7450 laptop and E-Port Plus II port replicator. I have tried this on 2 separate machines with the same results. I have also updated both the graphics drivers (Version, A16) and the BIOS (Version A04) to the latest releases. I have also tried using DVI cables as well as swapping out the port replicators. Nothing works. In Windows 8.1 itself, it actually shows as two monitors active, but one is not on. If I swap out the monitors to a different brand, I get the same result.
Is there a BIOS/UEFI setting I need to change? Is there a newer port replicator or update I need?

A:Dell Latitude E7450 compatibility with E-Port Plus II with external Dual DisplayPort monitors

Did you resolve this issue and, if so, how? I have the same laptop (but running Windows 10) and the same docking station with the same results.

I have two monitors. Before a computer crash, the one on the left was identified by Windows 7 as #1, and the one on the right as #2. Now the numbers are reversed and macros that rely on screen coordinates no longer function correctly. I've tried disconnecting the right (currently #1) monitor and starting the system with only the left monitor functioning. Windows identifies the monitor as #1 as desired, but as soon as I add back the second (right) monitor Windows changes the left monitor back to #2.

Is there some way of getting Windows to call the left monitor #1?

Now, I'm thinking of setting up a dual monitor system, as I would like to be able to multitask a little easier. I need a few things answered before I do, however.

First, people have been telling me time and time again to NEVER use two monitors of different size. What is the problem with this? Does it just look bad?

I currently have a 15" Samsung LCD.

If mixing two different sizes is a bad idea, I will be purchasing two larger monitors, and that's where I need some more help.

We've had 3 monitors for our PC now (all the same model, a GNR TS700) and on all three, the colour has gone wrong. The first and third time, the screen developed a green hue to everything. I think I've figured out that anything black has turned green (the Windows XP loading screen is green, as are the startup screens, and any dark patches on images have a green overtone). The second time the same thing happened, except everything turned a pinky-purple colour.

Am I right in thinking this model of monitor may have a chronic problem with the colour tube (or whatever it is that LCD monitors use)? I know it's not the graphics card, A) because I swapped the graphics card for a test one and there was no difference, and B) each time we've had it replaced, the monitor has been fine to begin with. This also rules out the cables because we've kept the same cables throughout.

So what is it likely to be - a bad batch of monitors, or is my computer doing something to the monitor that it shouldn't be? Thanks in advance for any help.

A:3 monitors, 3 times the colour goes wrong!

Hi all there,

I am having a strange problem with my 2nd monitor that is hooked up to my laptop. I use it as an extended desktop, but since a few days, the X/Y alignment has gone completely wrong.
It still connects and the desktop wallpaper is shown on the 2nd screen, but the bottom left of the extended desktop is shifted to almost the top right physical corner of the monitor and the rest of the screen is than located somewhere outside the physical boundaries of my monitor, making it impossible to work on it.

I have tried to delete the TMM thread in the registry, forcing Vista to reinstall the monitor upon reconnecting, but that didnt solve it.

I have tried to connect another monitor, but that gave the same problem, so it is not my monitor that has a problem.

Now I am left with either my laptop that has a physical problem with the VGA output or with Vista that scr*w*d up once again. And I do hope it is the latter...

Does anybody have any idea what I can do to solve this?

Thanks a lot in advance!

dell xps 15 l502x laptop, running an intel integrated graphics card and an nVidia GeForce GT 525m dedicated graphics card. Also a VGA plug and play Dell IN1910N monitor connected through a HDMI to VGA converter to the laptops HDMI out port.

The problem
Each monitor is running off a separate graphics card, according the the nVidia control panel, which is fine, but they are each running the wrong one. The laptop by default uses the integrated graphics, and the external monitor uses the dedicated card, which is useless, a i really only use it as extra desktop space or for playing movies, which doesn't require the dedicated graphics. Then when i go to play a game on the laptop screen, it switches to the dedicated card AS WELL, which then struggles to keep up.
How can i set the external monitor to run on the integrated graphics always?
I don't care if the laptop screen doesn't auto switch, so long as it runs the dedicated card at the right times and doesn't struggle, like it doesn't when the other monitor isn't connected.

For example I double click the program to run and it always opens on the 2nd monitor even if I drag it to my main monitor it always defaults back to monitor 2. Also why when I run programs in full screen (games mainly) when I exit out the folders that were open are a difeerent size to what I set them at before running the game sometimes even the folder will move to the 2nd monitor upon exit. Any ideas?


A:Dual Monitors: Folders Appear On Wrong Monitor

This is not an unusual problem, and seemingly random as well. Something I have done that usually works for me. Move the folder to the primary monitor, and close it there. Sometimes that is enough, but sometimes I have to do this:

Disable the 2nd monitor (set multiple displays to show desktop only on 1 in screen resolution). Now open and close the folder a few times on the primary monitor. You can then reenable the 2nd monitor, and see if the folder has "learned" the proper monitor.

Sometimes I've repeated this several times before it will stick. And on occasion, it just doesn't work. Good luck. A Guy

Are there any adapters to do this or ways to do this? I can't seem to find any.

I am buying new monitors, the dell u2414h. Now, while this does have hdmi, I will be connecting multiple monitors together to extend the display from the laptop to give me multiple screens. The problem with this is that it only works if you use displayport and not hdmi, so I need a way to convert the hdmi to displayport or mini displayport.

I will primarily be using these monitors with my laptop that has displayport, so that is why I am getting these monitors and that won't be a problem. I will most likely hook up other laptops to the monitors and hdmi is way more common from what I have seen on laptops than displayport and is why I need a way to go from hdmi to displayport or mini displayport.

Any ideas? Thanks.

This was asked before by KlausdB:

"I have 4 x HDDs on SATA AHCI (Intel Controller) in Native Mode and 1 x ESATA on Win 7 Pro X64.
I noted that looking in Admin. Tools\Computer Management\Storage (as an example) the 1st HDD (Port 0 in the AHCI BIOS) is showing as "Disk 2" instead of my expectation of

"Disk 1".
Selecting the Drive's Properties correctly shows the "Location 0 (Channel 0, Target 0, Lun 0)".
I also note that the Disk Number allocation in Windows will change randomly after some reboots/startups - going anywhere from "Disk 1" to "Disk 4".  I can force/replicate this

behaviour by removing the ESATA drive.
Is this expected behaviour?
It doesn't appear to create any operating issues at this stage, however, is there a way I can force the Drive to always map to (eg) Device 0 --> Disk 1, Device 1 --> Disk 2,


 This was answered by Nicholas Li:

"As far as I know, how the disk is plugged physically and the order it is displayed are not related. For a simple example, if a drive is plugged to SATA interface 4 and it is the only disk, it will be displayed as Disk 0. If there is no related issue about
the disk order, I think we can safely ignore this."

I have three SATA hard drives :
Main system/boot drive , WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 0 port
A backup drive, identical WD Caviar Black 1 TB, connected to the SATA 1 port
Another dirve, Hitachi 1 TB, connected to the SATA 2 port
When I installed Win 7, only the main drive was connected... and it remains the only drive with active/system/boot partitions.

All three drives reporr correctly in the BIOS, and in the right order, but why is it that only one of the drive (the one on SATA port 1) has a "SATA:" prefix and the others have a "HDD:" prefix ?

Why is it that the assignment of Disk #0, 1, 2 ( as seen in Disk Maanger or DiskPart) does not seem to have nay rhyme or reason?

I would have expected:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port O, to be assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, to be assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, to be assigned as Disk 2

but instead, I have:

- the hardrive connected to SATA port 2, is assigned as Disk 0
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 0, is assigned as Disk 1
- the hardrive connected to SATA port 1, is assigned as Disk 2

Just curious why that is.

I am assuming there is no way to chagne this. Its not something I would dream of reinstalling Windows 7 to correct ( even if it did correct it).

Best advice, leave it alone. It may bother your (and others) sense of order but it won't affect how anything works, and no re-installing Windows won't change it.

because not every customer with Windows 8 and USB 3.0 has a problem.

We actually had a customer ship us his laptop for us to examine: Acer Aspire V3. This system will not work with our dongle, no matter what we've tried. It did give us the opportunity to run some tests, but so far, I haven't been able to narrow down a root cause.

What we know so far:
Customers who have separate USB 2.0 ports or a USB 2.0 hub can sometimes work around any USB 3.0 issues. However, customers with only 3.0 ports and a few with a mix of 2.0 and 3.0 like the Acer Aspire V3 mentioned earlier still have problems.

Our dongles will pass testing USB-IF's USB Command Verifier tool up until the enumeration test. So far, we have not seen a dongle pass all 150 enumerations.

I have a Seagate GoFlex 1 Tb USB 3.0 drive. All worked good until a week or two ago. Now the drive will not be recognized when plugged into a USB 3.0 port, the error given is "Unknown USB Device (Device Failed Enumeration).

If I plug the GoFlex drive into a a USB 2.0 port, it works. I can plug USB 2.0 devices into the USB 3.0 port and they work. I just can't plug my USB 3.0 drive into a USB 3.0 port and get it to work.

I have tried uninstalling the Unknown USB Device in Device Manager. I've also uninstalled all other instances of it failing to be recognized.

My motherboard has a VIA VL805 USB controller. I've used the drivers on Gigabyte's site and I've used VIA's drivers, no difference. I have the latest BIOS for my motherboard.

The drive does not show up in Disk Management when plugged into a USB 3.0 port. This shouldn't be a surprise since the device is unknown in the Device Manager.

I thought the problem might be with the USB 3.0 cable or the GoFlex drive's USB interface. So I bought a new USB 3.0 docking station and...same problem. The new docking station also fails enumeration. Basically what it boils down to is a USB 3.0 storage device will not be recognized in a USB 3.0 port. But they work when plugged into a USB 2.0 port. To me this seems to suggest a driver problem, but I'm out of ideas as I've tried all the drivers I can come across.

I've searched all over for solutions and I'm not having any luck.

You might just need to uninstall those USB 3.0 drivers you have and reboot you PC and install this VIA_XHCI_Driver_V4.50A_AP .

I'm installing a new hard drive. Because I have a multi card reader the o.s. was enumerated last (drive H ). Will this cause a problem down the road, or is it immaterial ?

A:Operating System Enumeration

Depends.If you are installing a new hard drive to be used as a system drive...it could.If you are installing a new drive that is just another drive...letter assignments don't matter much once you get beyond C: and D:.The presence of a card reader should have no impact on a new system drive, since it precedes the card readers when it comes to hardware recognition. OTOH, if this hard drive has been merely added after the card reader...then it logically makes sense for letter assigned to be farther up the alphabet.All drive letters (except C:) can be changed by using the Disk Management feature of XP.Disk Management - http://www.theeldergeek.com/disk_management.htm Louis

I am receiving these two alerts continuously.
"An actor on workstation performed suspicious account enumeration exposing xxx existing account names"
Is this a generic alert when ATP does not recognize the machine name or is the machine name actually "workstation"?
I get the exact same alert for a workstation named MSTSC.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently had to manipulate a lot my Bluetooth antenna installation due to several tests...
The problem is, some third-party softwares I tested didn't managed to remove properly the dongle enumeration in my Windows registry.

When I reintalled the original pilots, my connection had an ugly "#2" stuck in the name... I went to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\BTH and I could see there was 2 enumerations!

Then, I went to the System/Devices entries and I manually deleted anything related to Bluetooth, and when I reconnected my antenna, the network switched to... "#3"!

Could you help me cleaning up that mess?

A:Cleaning up device enumeration

Open a command prompt window and enter these commands:

set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1

Device Manager will open. Select View -> Show hidden devices from the menu.

All your previously connected but no longer present devices will be shown grayed/dimmed. Uninstall the previous ones.

I want to have Access-based Enumeration (users could only see which they're allowed to) for my entire (LAN) network. As far as I know this tool is only available for Windows Server 2003 en by default for 2008. For my XP systems I use Windows SteadyState, which i.a. moderates some registry-strings to do this.

Now I want to implement it on my Windows 7 LAN-network. By which (registry-)tweaks or tools could I do this? Does anyone have a workaround yet?

Thanks again, in advance!

A:How to set Access-based Enumeration?

There are no workarounds. MS has no plans to develop a SteadyState tool for Windows 7.

I have peripherals that attach via USB/serial cable. Each time I plug into a USB port, apparently XP is assigning another Com # to it. The peripheral software can only be configured up to Com10. The only USB ports in constant use are printer, mouse, and scanner. These are always connected. I can go into the device manager to access the ports and try to reassign a lower com # but the port is being reported as "in use" rendering it unavailable for anything. How do I clean these out or reset com #'s ? or stop the enumeration process ?
I have, in safe mode, tried to remove all USB ports, hub controllers and serial ports for the pc. I have also removed all instances of the drivers for the serial/usb ports as well as the software requiring it use. Upon restarting, all ports are reinstalled including the phantom ones. XP insists on remembering.......
Thanks in advance for any guidance here.......
