Multiple Monitors On M93P SFF Desktop

Q: Multiple Monitors On M93P SFF Desktop

M93P SFF 10A90014US desktop PC. Would like to attach three monitors and display three discrete screens. According to the PSREF it is possible to do this with up to five displays. I have not been able to get this to work this way. I have spoken to technical support twice regarding this issue to no resolve. One support rep said I need an adaptor. Why? There are a total of 5 ports available for video, tried anyway, does not work. The other support rep said change a setting in the BIOS, when I tried that the setting does not exist. Machine has Nvidea GT620 with one display port and one vga port. System board has 2 display ports and 1 vga port. PSREF says the machine can support up to 5 displays if using the installed video card along with the system board Intel video ports. Has anyone been successful with this setup? Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks...

Hi, i have a question about win xp and multiple monitor support...i have gotten two monitors to work pretty well for twice the desktop space, but i was just wondering if there was a way to have different wallpapers on each or to adjust the way the screen saver behaves across the two screens. if anyone knows anything about this subject please tell me what you know...thanks a lot people!

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.

Currently, I run Windows 7 Pro on dual 24" monitors, and life is good.

In Win 8, if I open the desktop tile, I presume that the default action is to open the full-screen desktop app on just 1 of the 2 monitors. I'm guessing that the "Start" screen remains on the 2nd monitor.

Can I have the desktop app open, full screen, across both monitors? Can I have icons for my so-called legacy programs littered across both monitors like I have them on the Win 7 desktop? Just to clarify, I am NOT asking about having the background wallpaper extend across both monitors. I want the actual desktop application to extend across both monitors.

A:Desktop Tile Across Multiple Monitors

Yes, you can have the Desktop on both screens with the Taskbar on both where you can either pin certain things on each monitor or just the the Taskbar for separating windows on each screen. You can also have the Start Screen on one and Desktop on the other.

Hi everybody,
 
        I have a remote connection that I need to configure 2 monitors. Each of them must be showing a different window full time (a monitoring activity).
       In every forum that I visit, I have same answer: in Display tab of Remote Desktop Connection, tick "Use all my monitors for remote session".

       But when I'm connected (remotelly) to my host computer, I try to Maximize and/or increase my remote screen and nothing happens, just 1 remote screen in 1 monitor.
       In the Screen Resolution Configuration, it shows just 1 remote desktop (RDPDD Channel) monitor and I can't make any change about it.
     I also tried to change some Local Group Policies as showed in Tech Community Microsoft Blog "Using Multiple Monitors in Remote Desktop Session", in both sides, host computer
and client computer.


   And nothing happened, it seems that all different settings in Remote Desktop Connection on client computer doesn't take effect.
  Is that something that I'm missing?

To get around this problem I use Display Fusion ( I know there are some folks that just can't get over the fact that a third party program is needed to display separate wallpapers on each monitor.

I have a T61 Lenovo laptop with Mobile Internet 965 Express Chipset, Vista SP2. I have a second monitor, Envison, installed which I use to extend my desktop--laptop display on right, Envision monitor on left. Everything works just fine, however, whenever I shut down my system (sleep or hibernate or shut-down) and then power up again, the Envison monitor only displays my wallpaper and I need to re-establish it as my "extended desktop". This configuration worked fine under XP (with all the same hardware), but now it reverts back whenever I shut-down. Can this be fixed? Thanks.

I have a problem with Remote Desktop when using v6.0 to connect to a dual-monitor machine using the "span" option. Some text gets drawn in a rather bizarre fashion - it appears that the letters of the text are drawn in a wider font, but each letter is in the same position it would be with the original font. This results in each letter overlapping the next, making text extremely difficult to read.

I can recreate this in both Microsoft Excel and Artisan Studio. In Excel it is easy to recreate:
From a dual-monitor machine, connect via mstsc (remote desktop) version 6 or higher.
Open Excel
Put some text in a cell
Use the Excel "Camera" tool to take an image of the cell and place it anywhere in the spreadsheet
Voila - the camera version of the text looks messy, while the original looks normal. Connecting to the same session without using the "span" option shows the text correctly both with and without the camera.

I appreciate that not many people will have the necessary hardware to recreate this, but was hoping someone out there might recognise the problem! I suspect that the Excel camera tool uses a different method of rendering the text, and that it is this that is getting confused.

Any help appreciated!

Hello everyone! Not sure if this is the right forum, I had to decide between this and Customisation, but this seemed more applicable.

Anyway, whenever I restart my computer, all my desktop icons move around to really weird locations. I don't have that many icons, but I'm a clean freak, so when they move out of place it sincerely pisses me off

Here are the specs:
Asus G74SX built-in monitor: 1920x1080
External monitor: Acer X203H, 1600x900
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M 3GB VRAM


The icons all stay on my main monitor (the one on my laptop) but they are often jumbled far out of place, such as this example: http://i.imgur.com/Kqtpp.jpg

And here's how they're actually supposed to be oriented: http://i.imgur.com/1TMe7.jpg

As you can see, there's quite a difference XD

Also, if it helps any, the external moderator is connected via VGA and it's positioned to the left of my laptop.

Thanks!

Doing a simple google search, I keep running into your same situation. A laptop with an external monitor being used that has two different native resolutions and this seems to be causing the problem.

Hello! I've got a M93p Desktop (ThinkCentre) with a LGA1150 socket and no CPU. Since for me, it made sense that any LGA1150 CPU could work, I purchased a Intel I3-4170, installed it, but there is no video, no beep, nothing, just the fans and hdd works. For my surprise, according to the specs, only two (?) cpus are compatible: one I5 and the other an I7. It is of no use to mention the exact cpu models. I have three questions, I hope someone that was in my situation could help: 1. What is the technical reason why a cpu with the same socket type won't work?2. Besides removing battery, RAM and disk drives, is there anything else I could try?3. Can i just buy ANY motherboard compatible with the I3-4170 and put it in the M93p? Hoping that the RAM modules and PSU are 100% compatible with any component. Thanks for your help!!!!

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.

I have attached a second monitor to my laptop which runs Windows 7, however, I need to set different resolutions for different monitors, because the display does not fit to fill the screen on both monitors.

It is also noted that the display is replicated, and I would like to have the effect of having different desktops e.g. being able to use different applications such as debugging code on one monitor on an IDE such as Visual Studio, and, viewing the browser on the other monitor.

Currently it does not seem possible since the behavior seems to be that the same resolution is replicated on both monitors.

Are more than two monitors supported?

A:Working with multiple monitors does not allow multiple desktops

Set it to extended mode instead of duplicate, then you can use both independently.

For maybe 30 or so seconds it runs smoothly and then things just freeze for 2 or 3 seconds... i can run the same but i can't see my bullets, and if i a person was moving to the right, they keep moving to the right. Then it goes back to normal for 30 or so seconds and then glitches up for 2 or 3 again... repeat. Same all on servers.

So I rebooted my computer after reinstalling my video driver and now what was originally display 1 is now display 2 and vice versa. Normally I'm a pretty flexible guy and could care less and did care less about that till i tried to move to my 2nd monitor (now display 1 on my right side)... so to go to the right monitor i have to move my mouse left and to get back to my left monitor i have to go right.

A:multiple monitors

You need a video card with two outputs or use two video cards. If you use two cards, you should use cards of the same brand (ie: ATI or nVidia).

With that said, it also depends on the TV and the type of inputs that it supports. You then need a card with an output that matches the TV input (ie: HDMI, DVI, VGA, etc.)

Hi,

A:multiple monitors

A lot of computers support triple monitors these days, Intel integrated graphics, AMD graphics, NVidia graphics cards all support 3 or more monitors as long as the model you choose has three or more outputs. You may need more "junk" to connect each monitor such as a DisplayPort adapter since most system use a DisplayPort adapter for teh third monitor though.

Ok, the story is have 2 monitor's and a tv hooked up to my computer. When I'm not playing a dvd or something on the tv I would like to have some sort of 3d fish animation going on it, so it looks like a fish tank. I can easily get one of these as a scr, but that doesn't help since I want to have the animation going while I do my thing with the other 2 screens.

Far as I can tell the easist way to do this would be to use some scr player which can just run a screen saver on the tv, but be unaffected by mouse movement. It would be important that the prog have windowed mode since if it just fullscreans it it will likely mess up my other displays.

The other solution I thought of was to make that screens desktop an animated desktop with my disired fishy display. This however has proven to be difficult since all the animated desktop prgos i have found only support 1 display.

If anyone can tell me of some good progs to us or any other thoughts on how I can fix this I would be quite thankful. Btw I'm running winxp pro, the 3 displays are coming from 2 video cards. my primary monitor, and the tv are coming from my grforce fx 5600 agp card, and the second monitor is coming from a pci geforce mx 4400 card.

I would like to be able to use multiple monitors for displaying my photographs, at the same time still being able to use the pc for additional downloads and batch enhancements before uploading to additional folders for the viewing station monitors.

Do I need additional software/hardware? And "how do I" set this up? All input is greatly appreciated. Please feel free to email me regarding this question.

Welcome to TSG,

I've edited your title to give it a useful title.

You should look in to an AMD Radeon Eyefinity card or a Matrox card with 5 or more outputs.

Here's some examples:

You can get DisplayPort to any type of connector to connect each of the 5 monitors.
You can also use multiple cards, you could use an existing card and add a second card to get more monitors.

Have a question for those using more than one monitor. How does this help productivity? And what do you use such a setup for?

A:Why multiple monitors?

You can drag programs over to the other screen and it basically makes your screen bigger.

Alright, I know that you can have multiple monitors hooked up (assuming your vid card can support it), I'm wondering if it's possible to have 2 monitors, both having different things on each screen..

For example, Let's say I'm working a webpage design. I have 2 monitors hooked up, and I want 1 monitor to have the html page open, and the other monitor to have the notepad open. I then want to save the notepad file, and then refresh the html page (on the other monitor)

Another example could include playing 2 games at once on different monitors.. Like City of Heroes on one monitor and Warcraft III on the other.

Is this at all possible with 1 tower? Or is this like a 2 computer sort of deal..

Thanks!
 

A:Multiple Monitors..?

The first scenerio is quite possibly, since you do not need to clone one display to the other. You can set it up as an extension of the first, monitor and have whatever you like on it or set it up as a seperate screen.

The second senerio would not work, since it would stress every component in the entire computer as it would need to render two highly intensive environments with complex graphics and sounds with only one set of hardware to do so and to control it.

I have a company laptop (Lenovo) that I am using w/windows 10
I have an external monitor (AOC 27" computer monitor) added and would like to add another. The addition would be a Hitachi ROKU 42" LED. The hitachi would be used on a AT&T Connect conf hosted call. The monitor is used for additional info from laptop and the laptop screen for other support as needed during the conference. Will this work and if so how do I get all three screens up at the same time?'

Is it possible to connect to separate monitors with HDMI-DVI connection cables?  Is the HP capable of handling multiple attached monitors?  If so, do you need to purchase a HDMI splitter?

Hi, I want to use three monitors, one laptop screen and two external screens. I have connected the screens in two ways. VGA + DisplayPort to HDMIWith this setup, two monitors do work. When I try to add a third monitor (Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Screen Resolution) and click OK, Windows gives the following message: "Unable to save display settings". Wether I enable the laptop screen with an external screen or two external screens does not matter. It just cannot handle three screens. Microsoft says: "This issue occurs because some laptop graphic adapters only support two displays at one time. When you attempt to configure the display settings to use a third monitor on a laptop that supports only two monitors, Windows 7 and Windows 8 will check the hardware to confirm compatibility, then display the error message." But the hardware does support three monitors... VGA + DisplayPort to VGA adapter (to VGA of course)When i connect the screens like this, alle screens are working. The only problem is that when I set the resolution of the screen attached to the DisplayPort (to VGA adapter) to 1920 x 1080, the screen starts to flicker. When I put  the resolution to 1600 x 900 the screen works just fine. This is not a big problem, but when you buy a 27 inch Full HD screen you want to use it to it full capibility as you can imagine.   I read something abo... Read more

Hi all

First post ever to a computer forum

I have a new computer and I am planning to output to on or more of three monitors including a 42 inch TV

I have an ATI 5770 GPU

The output will be identical on the different displays

Stupid question - does the output to multiple monitors slow the performance? If so it there a way to activate only the monitor or monitors that I will be using?

Thanks

Will

Welcome to SevenForums! You made the right decision posting here.

If you have a compatible video card, you will have no trouble using dual monitors. Performance impact will be slight, unnoticeable unless you are trying to game that way.

Yes, you can disable any monitors you do not use. Right-click on the desktop, and click Screen Resolution. YOu can go from there.

Hope this helps,
~Jonathan
