So i have a HP HDX16t with a 512MB Geforce 9600M GT video card running Win7 64bit Home Premium. The laptop has a VGA and an HDMI output. I currently have an external monitor (19" ViewSonic VX900) hooked up to the VGA output. Does anyone know if i can hook my second external monitor (also ViewSonic VX900) up as well through the HDMI port? The VX900 has VGA and DVI-D inputs, so i would definitely need an HDMI to DVI adapter (which i don't have currently). I have searched around on this, but havn't been able to find anything conclusive. Nvidia's 9600m GT page is sorely lacking in details.

I know i could set this up by buying a Matrox DualHead2Go adapter as well, but i was hoping to avoid spending an extra $200 that i would rather put into upgrading my aging monitors. Also the apparent downside to the DualHead2Go adapter is that i would need to place both monitors on one side of my laptop vs one on either side (as i had hoped to do).

I have an L380 provided by my employer and thought I'd come up with a good solution for connecting two external monitors whilst working from home. I purchased a USB C to HDMI Cable for one monitor and utilised a HDMI to HDMI cable for another monitor. As theres a USB C video enabled port and a HDMI port on the L380 I saw no reason for this to be unsuccesful. However, it would appear I can only have one display active at any one time. If I turn one monitor off, the other comes on... but I'm unable to run both simultaneously. Is there any reason why this is happening and what are my options for utilising two external monitors at the same time? Many thanks.

I would like to connect the machine so I can run two external monitors simultaneously when I'm working from home.

Hi All OK, so I have a W530 with the mini dock 170W: great machine.  Originally I just had one external LCD, and no issues. I now have another LED, and I get screen flicker on both external monitors (laptop screen is fine). Details:-Windows 8BIOS 2.51Graphics: Quadro K2000M with driver 310.90 (updated to latest in hope it would fix issue)Of extra note: I have a dock at home and work, and both have dual monitors.  At home connection is DVI for both. At work, one is DisplayPort and the other DVI. 3 displays are Samsung, and 1 a Dell...all around 23/24" size. The setup at work did work without flicker at one point with two displays...it was flickering, and I played around with cables, and rebooted, etc. and after lots of time/frustration the flicker stopped...but since docking again, has started :-( I have read lots of google about ground loop issue: bit concerned about ditching grounds on monitors, and would have thought that if this is such a common issue, there would be a better solution supported/provided by the laptop manufacturers...so have not followed this suggestion... If anyone else is running a similar system without flicker it would be interesting to get your exact system spec to help determine which aspect of the system causes this... RegardsPaul.

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 10.18.14.4170, 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.

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.

Hi! I just upgraded to Win8 this weekend and so far I really like it. I discovered something this morning that now that the weekend is over is bugging the crap out of me and I need help. I work from home and use this alot so it would be helpful.

I am trying to do a couple things I could easily do in 7,

- currently Chrome has no minimize/maximize buttons on the upper right like it used to. Makes it very hard to multitask.

I have 2 monitors, the main is a 23" touch screen and the second is an 18" non-touch screen.

Also, is there a way to have the taskbar to appear at the bottom always like it used to?

Thanks! I really appreciate the help!

Hello dunna, welcome to Sevenforums

With a laptop, (assuming you have an HDMI port), it shouldn't be too difficult. However, laptops are different. For example, mine, you plug in the secondary monitor, and there is a function key (Fn) that you press, and the corresponding key to change the output mode (for me, it is F1). It should let you choose how you want to display to the monitor. Test it out yourself to see, but if you can't find it, let us know. It helps if you provide the laptop type, so we can tell you the keys exactly

I have dual monitors, one on my laptop and another bigger monitor for when I am docked and at the office.

Under XP I had it set so that when I closed the lid on my laptop, the lapto screen was shut off and all files that were subsequently opend were opened to the main big screen.

It appears now that when I close the lid the screen stays on and if there was a window showing on the laptop when the lid is closed it does not automatically switch to the big monitor. It used to under XP. Is there a way to duplicate this behavior in Windows 7?

There are times when I want to use just one monitor and shut the monitor built-in to the lap top - off. Is there an easy way to do so?

Hello everyone!

Here is my problem. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate Edition on my desktop PC. I installed a fairly old graphics card (dont need anything fancy for software programming). It is a Jaton 117PCI with 32MB memory. Also I have a ATI Radeon HD Pro 2600 Installed. I cahnged my BIOS to boot PCI first instead of PCIe. Windows will boot up but no display on the ATI Card. I go to device manger and it shows both cards, with no conflicts and working properly.

When i access the displays menu in Windows 7 it will only show my montior on the Jaton card and will not show my ATI card as being active.

Is there anything i can do to get these two cards to work together? (I thought i was really good at computers, but now haha this has thrown me for a loop)

I found this post:
Triple Screen troubles
it was identical to my problem except my setup was different, his method of fixing his problem i dont think is going to work for me.

Also, the ATI card has two DVI ports and a S-Video, i just dont have another monitor with DVI. When i use a DVI to VGA converter the monitor wont come on it will stay in power save mode. I know the ports on the card are working because I can remove the converter and plug it up to my other monitor that has DVI on it and it will power up.

So any help to solve either one of these problems will be greatly appreciated. If there is anymore information you may need please let me know!

Thanks, Jonathan.

When you right click on the desktop and select Resolutions do you get the option for both cards there?

If you dont, have a look in Device manager and see if they are both WDDM 1.1 Cards because i believe they have to be to run together.

If you do, try installing the actual drivers for your monitors, as that fixed similar problems mentioned at the end of my original thread...

A:Dual monitors

Even easier, connect the second monitor to the video card, no need for the onboard video. The only way the monitors being a different size is if you set them to clone mode (both display the same thing, a waste of time unless you're doing presentations or something). Just set the second monitor to extended mode and you should be good to go.

Either way, you will have to have your keyboard and mouse plugged in to the system in order for it to boot.

If you have two computers, you'll have to swap the keyboard and mouse after shutting down one system and before booting up the other.

This means you can only have one operating system running at a time.

Keyboards and mice are not expensive, and it's worthwhile for any business to have a spare around anyway.

If the desk space is a problem, then arrange things so you can sore the keyboard and mouse not being used off to one side.

Hello,

I recently installed Windows 8 and was playing around with it for most of the day yesterday, I was able to get both monitors up and working, I have a Vizio E470VL and a Sony SDM-P232W ... Yesterday I had the E470VL as the main Screen and it made the 2nd Display a Generic Nvidia Display monitor, but both were working..

So last night I watched some preseason football on the Vizio on HDM2 and when I woke up this morning, the Sony was still working but the Vizio (computer is on HDM1) had no signal input, while I noticed the extended screen was enabled meaning my mouse disappeared onto the other blank screen .. so the thought occurred to me to restart..

So I restarted, then it recognized my Sony with its proper settings instead of the Generic and only listed one monitor in the Display settings.. I did a detect device and was given a few options of adding another monitor, and tried to do that, without any success.. so then I detached the Sony, and tried to restart only with the Vizio on both ports, the one it was originally in and the one the Sony was in.. with no success, still no signal, checked the connections, and somehow I doubt it would be the cable and I admit that the symptoms in trouble shooting things kind of point to that, but the cable is new.. and would love to entertain other ideas before getting a new one..

any suggestions?

First idea is to install:

NVIDIA GeForce 305.53 64-bit download from Guru3D.com

Probably be good to go after.

Are there any games that support this as of yet?

I have used a TV as a 2nd montior in the past to watch downloaded eps on a larger screen, but now with the lower cost of larger monitors I began wondering about this when i bought a newer video card capable of supporting dual monitors

I just bought a new TV and hooked it up to my Acer Aspire X1200 Desktop PC via HDMI Cable (HDMI from PC to HMDI TV input).

Every time I drag something over to the TV, (e.g. a Video)... the TV Picture works OK but I lose all the desktop icons on the PC Monitor and get an error report (one of which I sent for analysis).

In order to get the icons back, I have to reboot the computer and usually the icons are reconfigured in a cluster....i do not have 'align to grid' selected (Lucky I have a little Gismo which will reset the desktop items to my previously configured favourite layout).......

I have a VGA to HDMI Converter but did not use that yet because I am waiting for a splitter for the VGA Cable which will boost the signal to both monitors (and I believe would simply duplicate my desk top anyway).

If I could simply use the TV as an extension Monitor without all the problems after I have dragged something over to that screen, then I would not even have to use a converter or a VGA splitter.

Any ideas as to why my Desktop Monitor goes 'skewiff' after I push something out to the extension monitor?

One monitor with VGA connection and one with HDMI, both of the same graphics card (which from the Acer Aspire X1200 I am assuming is the integrated NVIDIA GeForce 8200).

If you press the (Windows Key + P) together, holding down the Windows key, is the option Extend selected? If not, can you select it please (still holding down the Windows key, press P a couple of times until Extend is selected).

How have you setup the two monitors, their resolution mainly but anything else?

Can you turn this off temporarily and test?

Yes, a VGA splitter will only duplicate the output, you will see the same image on both monitors.

I have a friend who wants me to set up a dual monitor system like he has at work and I'm confused. He has an HP Win 7 machine and the graphics card has a regular vga port and one that according to the specs says is a DVI-D.

I went to pick up a VGA to DVI-D adapter for the second monitor and the guy said that it wasn't possible to do that without a "converter box." That doesn't sound right. Help?
Thanks,

Bernie
