Hi...

IM trying to set up a monitor for a friend but wilst hes online gaming or offline etc he gets a very very light pattern , rather like small squares on his monitor. Hes just purchased the monitor out of a news paper but there was no driver with it. Ive searched the world wide web and it seems that the original site www.amaga.com has closed down so there may well be no support anymore.

Can any one help me by tracking down a driver. Im using windows XP home but XP dont seem to wont to load it...

Running multiple monitors:

Display 1: ATI ALL-In-Wonder Radeon
Display 2: ATI Xpert 128 (also tried Diamond Monster Fusion)

The ATI TV display won't work with the multiple monitor enabled. I get sound, but only a little strip of video, and it is frozen, sort of a green and purple display. This worked fine under Win98 (and ME).

All drivers have been updated. I tried changing color depth (per ATI support). Didn't help. If I shut off the second monitor and turn TV back on, it works.

Anybody have a similar configuration?

Just a thought. If you cannot find anything better, maybe a cheap surge protector, with the on off switch. You can put it right by the computer and then you can turn it on or off.
Maybe, not the best idea, but a great last resort. Good luck.

Hi, I have a 755CX ThinkPad. The monitor on it is about 12 inches big, but for some reason, windows 98 Only uses up about 10 inches of the screen, and the rest of the screen is still lighted.
I tried changing all of the display options and still no difference.

Hello,
I have a windows 7 professional, 64 bit system.
ATI Radeon HD3650 Video card driver version 8.620.0.0 from ATI, dated 5/15/2009.
I have an LCD TV, located in another room, hooked up to the HDMI port, and a monitor hooked up to the DVI port. For whatever reason, the tv has always been detected as monitor 1. In normal use, the monitor is used for the computer, with the desktop icons and the task bar, and the tv is used to play movies.
The system has been in place, and operating fine for well over a year. There have been no OS updates in the last week or two, no driver updates for much longer than that.
I use the win-p keyboard shortcut to switch back and forth between projector (standard monitor) and extend.
I went to start a movie tonight, and switched the display from projector (tv is detected as monitor 1) to extend and the monitor became the secondary display, and the tv became the primary display.
To rephrase:
1) normally the monitor is the primary display, and always has the task bar and desktop icons, the tv is turned on as desired, in extend mode, for playing movies and will only show the wallpaper if no program window is open.
2) today, the monitor shows exactly what I expect, until I change to extend mode, at which time the TV shows the desktop icons and task bar, and the monitor shows only the wallpaper.

A:multi monitor display oddities - system stopped working

Hello rst Welcome to the Seven Forums!

When running a player or even the software viewer for the tv tuner/capture card here and moving it over from the primary display to the second with the extended desktop the full screen playback is still only seen on the primary.

Here I use the UltraMon program for dusl display where you have the option to switch which monitor or in your case tv or monitor will be the primary with a right click and check off the monitor 1 or monitor 2 item in the right click menu's Set Primary option for setting which will be the default display.

UltraMon, DisplayFusion, and others are 3rd party help for things like that or offering a Smart type task bar extension over to the second monitor when extending the desktop. For full screen playback there you would temporary set the primary for the tv when going to watch anything full screen.

Some backstory: just one month ago, I started to think of what will be the other use of our TV and it's HDMI cable. When I cleaned out my PC, I noticed that my card has an HDMI port so something came into my mind; and after 2 weeks, I decided to use my TV for a larger monitor and it works fine. In the coming weekend, I'll work with 2 displays. I'll use the 32" (capable of 1080p) as the main monitor and my stock 20" as a side monitor. So I can still do things while doing other things? I may not be able to connect with my internet since the positioning of the modem and the TV is away from each other so I can't immediately ask for support nor receive it. Also, is it possible to have different backgrounds in each monitor? And another question: if there will be two displays (with different contents being shown from one another), will it mean that the GPU load will double? What programs will I use? Is there already a built in program?

Specs of GPU and the displays:
Palit NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 2048 MB (VGA, DVI and HDMI)
Stock 20" HP monitor
LG 32LF20FR 32" 1080p TV (from what I can remember, it's from 2009)

A:Setting up a multi-monitor display w/ a 20" HP monitor and a 32" LG TV

Hi there
the easiest way is to use WINDOWS + P and simply use the EXTEND option - then you can move things at will between the two monitors. Remember though the resolution will be that of the device having the SMALLEST resolution (not necessarily the smallest screen !!).

For different Backgrounds you could use the desktop program in the sysinternals suite - this gives up to 4 "Virtual desktops" that you can split out over the two monitors.

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/s.../bb842062.aspx

Extract the DESKTOPS.EXE file - works on W8.1 too

Couple of Caveats with DESKTOPS.EXE though -- desktop version of IE only works from DESKTOP 1 - if you start IE again from desktop 2,3,4 then the windows are stacked up in desktop 1.

Charms etc only operate from primary desktop (desktop 1)

Toolbars, desktop icons etc all work correctly on each desktop with the exceptions outlined

Hello folks,

I seem to be having multiple problems all at the same time (all of which may or may not be related) but let me start from the beginning.

This all started when I tried to connect my Inspiron 1720 laptop to our television. For some reason my laptop froze, the image on both my computer and TV had white lines across it, and so I turned off my system since it was locked up.

I restarted and began having display problems - first windows were not opening in the desktop area. They would open in the system tray, but were "unreachable" by the mouse. I played with display settings and got the screen to fit...but now seem to have 2 primary problems:

PROBLEM 1:

Whenever I play games, view pictures, or Windows Media Player, I see strange "plaid boxes." However, the desktop is fine and everything else appears to work fine. I contacted NVIDIA and I have installed different driver versions, as well as the OEM (Dell's) driver's - all did not work - I still saw the distorted images when playing games, viewing pictures, and videos.

I have also completed System Restore's to points prior to when I was having the problem - unfortunately that did not work.

Here are screenshots of what I am seeing:

I recently updated to the latest Nvidia driver (266.xx) for my GeForce GTS 250 video card, using a Sony Bravia EX400 as my monitor. After doing this there was no change in the computer's performance except that every time I run a game application (such as Starcraft II, World of Warcraft, Warcraft III, or Counter Strike: Source) there is something wrong with the display. I can only describe it as being incredibly pixelated to the point that I can't even hardly read the text on the screen. No matter how I change the in game video settings, the quality of what I am actually seeing on the screen does not change.

I took screen shots of this happening (in both World of Warcraft and Counter Strike: Source), but when I opened the screen shots to view them on my computer, they were as clear as day with no graphical problems.

I changed to a regular ViewSonic computer monitor and the problem went away, then went back to using the TV and the problem reappeared. So the only 2 solutions I have found so far are to either use a regular computer monitor (which I don't own at the moment) or to roll back to older drivers, in which case the performance is severely affected.

Sony Customer Support wasn't able to solve the issue despite 2+ hours of troubleshooting, so I don't think it's an issue with the TV. Maybe there is an issue between the new Nvidia drivers and my TV?

If anyone has any input on this issue it would be greatly appreciated.

This is probably the most painful issue I have with Windows 10 right now (and likely previous versions as well, but I didn't have a multi-monitor setup back then).

The monitors I have are as follows:
3840x2160 (4K UHD) monitor with preferred DPI: 144 (150%)1920x1080 (Full HD) monitor with preferred DPI: 96 (100%)

Whenever one of these monitors are set as primary, all desktop applications displayed on the secondary monitor (doesn't matter which) has blurry text. Exceptions are the Windows Store Apps like Windows Store and Microsoft Edge, along with the Taskbar/Start Menu, the Taskbar/Start Menu settings screen, the Taskbar context menu, and the desktop context menu which passes the DPI test with flying colours, with crispy text on both monitors (occasionally a DPI switch bug gets in, but I can mostly ignore that). The problem is, as you can probably guess, is that >99% of the applications I use aren't Windows Store Apps.

Here are some screenshots. The "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" text is what the text should look like while the Visual Studio 2015 text is an example of the text most desktop apps get. The blurry image is what happens when the UHD monitor is not the primary monitor.

I have a 9800 GX2 card and always want to run two monitors. In the Nvidia Control Panel set-up under 3D settings and sub heading "Set Multi-GPU Config" I have the recommended option of Multi-GPU Mode, but if I select that, the second monitor stays blank. I assume because my card has two GPU's internally SLI connected and you (to date) can't run two monitors when SLI invoked?

Assuming that is correct

1. Is Nvidia working to overcome this major hurdle of SLI and 2 Monitors?
2. If I use Triple Head to Go, will this allow me to select Multi-GPU and still have two monitors and will I have better performance?

Kotuku

A:Multi GPU Mode Versus Multi Display

When you use SLI, the secondary GPU shuts the output off, so you can't connect a monitor to the second GPU. It's always been like this with Nvidia SLI. I'm quite sure if you use an external multi-monitor device, you could set multiple monitors up while still haveing SLI enabled.

Hello TechCrew and welcome to Seven Forums.

When a system does not detect a drive, it's often caused by one of two problems: The hard drive isn't properly connected to the computer, or you have not yet installed the drivers for the hard drive. Windows 7 has a huge driver data base so it should detect the new Hitachi hard drive. Even Hitachi says no additional drivers should be needed.
Support - Drivers for Hitachi Hard Disk Drives
Hitachi also says if your system is requesting drivers you may need current versions of your controller or motherboard drivers. To obtain the most current controller or motherboard driver, contact the manufacturer. That should be at the Sony eSupport website for your region.

Greetings, I was anticipating this to be a headache, since it only worked in Win7 by throwing spaghetti at a wall.

Essentially, I have a dual monitor display. The right monitor is primary, the left is to be used by art programs, movies, games, and other more specialized work (as well as workspace in a large project and running code next to blah blah).

So, my problem is getting the movies and 3d apps (especially games) to render on the left monitor, but keep all of the main functions on the right one, as it is now.

...

A side problem... I don't totally dislike the Start Screen; I think it can be useful putting it up on that left monitor when not in use as a live feed reader when not running a program there, while leaving the right monitor "classic". Any way that is possible?

Thanks in advance.

As the title indicates, I have a Latitude ST which runs pretty well under Windows 8. In fact it ran VERY well under Windows 8 until I tried to start using it with an external monitor. The Latitude has a full HDMI port, so I got an HDMI-DVI cable and hooked up to the external monitor. Nothing. Went into the Basic Display Driver, and it showed no signs of finding the external monitor.

I discovered the Latitude used an Intel GMA 600 chip, and downloaded and installed the Win 7 32-bit drivers (since Intel says it doesn't support Win 8 for this chip). Now my external monitor was recognized, and everything seemed to be great.

Except that now none of my alarm programs work. Evidently all of the Win 8 alarm programs do "something" that asserts a graphical mode that causes the programs to shut down. Windows 8 itself doesn't crash, but I am now having to use the alarm clock program on my phone rather than the alarm programs I've bought for Win 8. I can only imagine that if I were to run a game on the Latitude I would see similar issues.

Any suggestions for a way to have an external monitor AND not have my programs crash?

The problem running 4K monitors right now is that Windows and other applications are not configured to scale to such an extreme rate. Windows in particular doesn't do well with scaling in general.

My best recommendation is to use a 125% or 150% scale on Windows. This should provide a bigger screen, but keep down on the blurriness; other than that there isn't much else you can do, but to seek out a magnifying tool perhaps online.

Hi,  Hopefully someone can shed some light on this issue. I purchased an HP Spectre 32-inch 4K display off of Kijiji (similar to craigslist) and it was working flawlessly for about 2 weeks. Now, every so often it will flash a black or multi-colored strip on a random portion of the screen. I've tried with, and without my graphics card, and have completely updated the onboard graphics on my PC as well so I doubt it is an issue with my computer. Has anyone else come across this issue before? I've attempted to look up the monitors serial and model number to see if it is in warranty but a different product appears when I enter it on the hp website (perhaps this is a replacement monitor I purchased off of someone without knowing?)

Even when you go to full screen mode the cards remain little but the spacing between the cards expands. Does anyone know if there's a way to make the cards larger. They were okay with the 15 inch but now on this screen their midgets. We've been checking settings all over and all we keep running in to is 'this cannot be changed since it is part of the Windows system'. It basically says that everything is already programmed in xp and settings can not be changed. Does anyone else have this problem?

A:solitaire on a 19 inch monitor

That's the way it works, I guess you need to send that 19" monitor to me and continue to use the 15" one.

Hi, recently I've got a new monitor which best displays at 1920x1200, but the accursed EDID limits that to 1440x900. Luckily, I was able to override that with ATI CCC, but that only works on VGA. Switching to the better DVI limits the resolution back to 1440x900. Making it bigger via Windows Display Properties only made everything worse, the screen does not display everything and I have to move my mouse to move the view.
I have tried mamny times uninstalling/reinstalling video card drivers, even old ones on the disc, but that did not work. Even unistalling/reinstalling the monitor on Device Manager did nothing.
Please help.

Windows XP SP3
ATI Radeon HD 4350 (w/ latest driver)

im getting a gaming computer soon, and I dont want to use much money on my monitor, I my plan was to use it on my TV, but my friends say that unless you have a really powerful computer, it will lag the PC to pieces. so I was wondering if my computer could handle my 46 inch samsung plasma TV?

specs:
motherboard: asus P8Z77-V pro Z77 S-1155 ATX IVY
procesor: intel core i7 3770K 3,5hz 8mb s-1155 IVY
graphics card: asus geforce gtx 570 directcu II 1280mb pci-e dvi/hdmi
harddrive: seagate barracuda 2TB 7200rpm sata/600 64mb
powersupply: corsair hx 750w atx12v 2.2 / eps12v
RAM: corsair 8gb ddr3 vengeance l pc3.12800 1600mpz cl9 (2X4GB)
 

A:Using my 46-inch television as a monitor?

It is possible that the TV could introduce a bit of latency, depending on the system and type of interface, but perhaps not, so I reckon there's nothing to lose by just trying it, and if it's pants, then start saving for a monitor!

Going to University so need a flat screen, CRT is simply too bulky for the box-room they call student housing .

I'm looking for a new LCD monitor that will not ghost or blur in fast moving games. I was hoping to get one with a 12ms response time but it seems they don't make 15 inch models with this (or not that i can find). So I'll be happy with 16ms as long as it is a good make. I'm looking at 15 as apposed to 17 inch models simply because for the price I probably cannot afford a good 17 inch one, whereas I can buy a really good 15 inch model that will look lovely for my games.

I live in England (UK) and am looking to spend hopefully around 250.

Any suggestions?

I meet a problem when I try to show 2 inputs on my monitor.The PBP function does not work as expect. It does seperate the screen into 2 patitions, but the resolution on both side is 21:9, which make the overall resolution is 42:9.  The product introduction shows an image of PBP, which is definitly not 42:9.Any idea on how to fix it?

Hi, about a year ago I had a problem with my pc where I would get the error message "display driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered" and the occasional BSOD. I solved this problem by simply flashing my bios. However a similar problem has now arrived ( note I have not changed any hardware since the last error) where:

- There is a constant buzzing from my monitor ( NOT a problem with the monitor as it works fine in safe mode with no buzzing, which is why I suspect a gpu problem)

- I get random "display driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered" messages, but no BSODs. OR the display just goes black and I have to hard reset my pc.

I believe all my specs are in my sigs. Please help.

Thanks

A:Graphics card error - Monitor buzzing and display driver failure

Sounds like a case of GPU failure to me. The buzzing spontaneously appearing out of nowhere is never a good sign.

Sounds like your 5850 is toast - I'd try and run a demanding 3D application such as 3D Mark to put the GPU through its paces - if it encounters even more drastic errors, etc - then the card is bin fodder.

A GPU upgrade will rectify your issue - or if you don't really use any 3D applications that require GPU power (Such as games, CAD, etc.) then just remove your faulty card and use the onboard graphics of your motherboard.

Hope that was some help.

Just bought a 19" Gemstar LCD flat screen monitor. It works perfectly when plugged into my laptop. On my PC however, it only works in safemode and normal bootup with the lowest resolution (600x480 8bit). I have to press f8 during normal boot up though and select "enable vga mode" everytime so it will show the desktop with the lowest resolution. It would've been fine, except that the screen seems way too large than what I'm used to, can't even see the bottom areas to click the ok or cancel buttons on some settings. Can't change resolutions either, whole thing just restarts the PC. If booting up normally without pressing f8, a blank screen just comes up after the initial boot up and XP logo screens. Also tried to disable my start up items to see if it might be other software problems/conflicts possibly causing the invalid mode but all that did was cause my PC to give a nasty error that I've had to resolve.

I have Windows XP Pro SP1 and an S/I ATI Rage Fury 32mb/TV cmpl video card. Does anyone know if updating the video card fixes the problem and if so, which driver needs to be installed? Tried searching the net for this problem, the nearest one I found is the thread but it still doesn't answer or help with my dilemma:

I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu.

Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
