Triple Dual Monior?

Q: Triple Dual Monior?

Hello, I have a very interesting problem. At my church we are now running a projector and taking in a live feed using a video bus and puting it on the screen. We are using a program that can put text on top of the live feed, or text on a black screen and all on the fly and stuff but the problem comes in when viewing the screen. The computer that controls it all is in a room that cannot see the screen so we wanted to setup 2 monitors ... one that views the controls, and one that views what's actually on the projector in the room. So we would have 3 outs (2 and 1 Projector) total but I'm not sure how to get the 2nd monitor to display the same thing as the projector. My question is this ... is there a way to set windows to just act as if theres 2 monitors and display the same thing on the second mopnitors through the 2 respective outs or do we have to buy some splitters ect. i want to shun away from the splitters because the leader doesnt want to buy and amplifiers for the signal so i'd like not to split the sound but im just wondering if windows can do that ... Currrently we have windows XP Media Center. If Vista can do it and XP cant that's no problem either.

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: Triple Dual Monior?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've got a dual-booting Dell Dimension 4500 P4 with the following hard disk setup:

DISK 1 (40GB) - Windows XP

DellUtility Fat 31.3 MB Primary
Local Disk (C NTFS 38.1 GB Primary

DISK2 (120GB) - Windows XP
Cubase SX NTFS 114 GB Primary

I've backed everything up to an external drive. Disk 1 is the partition I use day to day and contains the boot.ini to load Windows XP on DISK2 if required.

What I want to do is remove Disk 1 and repartition Disk 2 so that I can add a further Windows XP instance and possibly a third partition for another OS at a later stage (e.g Linux or a Vista Beta).

However, if I remove Disk 1, I cant boot the machine - presumably because boot.ini, ntldr etc are on that Disk. Can I just copy these files over? If so, which are the files I need? From memory I would also need to edit boot.ini so that it looks at the right partition on the right disk to boot into an OS.

The error I get if I just have disk 2 connected is:

PXE-E61 Media Test Failure, check cable
PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel Boot agent.

Reboot and select a proper boot device.

Both drives are set to use cable-select. I;ve tried making Disk 2 a master but got the same error. The cabling is inserted firmly etc.

I have a copy of Partition Magic 8 on Disk1 I can use for the partitioning. I'd be grateful if anyone could suggest a strategy for doing this without any 'ntldr' missing or blue screen nightmares. I used to know this stuff but am a bit rusty.

Many thanks,

I'm thinking of getting two or three 24" LCDs to increase productivity (I'm a graphic designer.)

Here's a picture of how it currently looks with 1 24".

I place a lot of emphasis on multimedia along with my graphic design, and I'm not sure how good my Z-5500s would sound if they were moved away from the recommended soundstage. Ex: If I two other monitors I have to push the speakers more to the peripheral of each side. I can't place the speakers sideways on the bottom of the monitors because the speakers are too big. I also don't want to place the speakers behind the monitors because that would (severely) alter sound quality.

What do you guys recommend?


A:Dual/Triple Monitors + Speaker positions?

I guess I would be thinking of different scenario's like this (all depends how creative/skilled you are or want to be)....
A shelf to raise the monitors up just enough to alow the speakers to lay sideways, the ones in the picture don't look that big? You could also just elevate the bases of the monitors.
Some monitors can be mounted on a wall
if your lucky you can find a good bracket like this one to hold them up high enough...here's another

I just recently installed a hard drive from one of my older systems. It's nothing special just an old 1.2GB Hard Drive that came out of a very old Win98 Computer. I was wondering why my computer was doing three memory checks. What happens on the first one is it says:

Configuration automatically configured
60GB[Disk 1] DVD-ROM[Disk 3] CD-RW [Disk 4]

After the second time it comes up and says:

Configuration automatically configured
60GB[Disk 1] 1.2GB [Disk 2] DVD-ROM[Disk 3] CD-RW [Disk 4]

Then it does the mem check a third time and boots up to WinXP Pro

Here is my sys config.

Hard Drive 1: 60GB Hard Drive

For the last 3 years i have worked with Windows XP , 2x Sapphire Radeon HD 3850 512 MB videocards and 3 monitors connected (2x 22inch and 1x 19inch).

This worked without a single problem.

Since i got a terrible virus i was forced to upgrade to Windows 7.

And from this moment the problems started.

Only 1 22 inch monitor displays the correct resolution 1680x1050. The other 22inch is set to a lower resolution and when i manually try to set it higher it wont go to the desired resolution.

In the mean time i have removed the 3rd monitor. So currently i am working with the 2x 22inch.

I have tried to install every single driver available but nothing works.

The funny thing is that when i installed windows 7 that the monitors did work for about 3days. Suddenly the monitor resolution changed and i couldnt got it back.

1 time when trying installing older drivers the monitors went back to the good resolution but with in a day it failed again. Now after 2 weeks of trying and installing /deleting drivers i have no idea what to do anymore.

My PC details:

Windows 7 Home premium 64bit
Quad Core Q6600 2.40 GHz
4GB RAM memory
Gigabyte GA-P35-D34 rev. 2.1 motherboard
2x Sapphire Radeon HD 3850 512mb PCI-e videocards

(I am using ultramon for multiple taskbar)(but after removing it the problems still exist)

Can someone help me ?

I ordered some computer stuff at 4a.m. and I had a major brainfart when doing so.

I ordered some Crucial ram that came in 2GB sticks, Newegg.com sold is in doubles and triple packs, my thought was well, 6GB is better then 4GB when ordering but after doing so I thought, wait, don't you normally run ram in two's for dual channel?

So tomorrow I have 3, 2GB sticks showing up. Should I order a forth? I mean I KNOW I can run just 3 sticks but that puts is out of dual channel mode, correct? Does it REALLY matter when you get upto 6GB of ram? I mean computers are so quick now days, does it really actually matter?

I have this motherboard:

Newegg.com - ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 AM3 AMD 880G HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

I intend to install Windows 7 Ultimate x64 tomorrow on this new motherboard and a Dual-Core CPU.

A:RAM... Two sticks, three sticks, dual channel, triple channels, huh?

Most MB's will let you run the 3 sticks in dual channel mode. One channel will have 4GB and one will have 2GB. Check you MB manual and it should show which slots to use.

I just put a new computer together.I used an ecs 780gma ultra motherboard,550 w rocketfish psu,4 gb gskill pc2-6400.Two seagate barracuda 500gb hds.I havent done a lot of benchmarks yet but I was surprised to see dvd shrink taking twice as long as it did on my dual core to shrink the same dvd.When I look under task manager the cpu is always around 35%. To me,35% times 3 isnt as good as 100%x2,so obviously thats why its slower.Could it be my windows xp x64? I might try updating to windows 7 if I really have to.

A:triple core pc slower than my dual core

The 64bit version of xp has always had problems.

Next you do not post what cpus you are comparing so it is hard to really give you any ideas. If the new cpu has a lower clockspeed than the older dual core, then yes it will probably take longer.

Next did your old dual core use a quality mb; ie asus, gigabyte, etc? I see you used an ecs board for the new build. ECS is at or near the bottom for quality among mb makers.

I looked on the ecs site and I do not see any chipset drivers for xp 64bit. Did you install your chipset drivers?

I wouldn't say I am an extreme multitasker, but for an extra $10 I can upgrade to a third core. I was gonna order a new PC from a website and from what I thought, each core was combined to make a total speed. So a dual core 2.8ghz would be two 1.4ghz cores, and a triple core 2.8ghz would be three 0.9ghz cores?

I am most likely confused, but that's why I can here. XD

A:Dual core or triple core?

A dual core 2.8ghz would be two 2.8ghz cores, and a triple core 2.8ghz would be three 2.8ghz cores. if you have the extra $10 go for it.

I already have Windows 7 on the main drive and intend to install Windows 8 on a separate partition. Re-connect the drive with Linux installed and install 8. My question is, will Windows 8 find Linux and add it to the start up. Failing that, I know that it can be added somwhere in Windows, but that's beyond me.

someone suggested I change my i7 spec from s 1366 2.66Ghz i7 and 6Gb 1333mhz Triple Channel memory to 1156 2.8Ghz i7 and 4Gb 1600Mhz Dual Channel Memory ...

im wondering what kind of an performance impact will moving from Triple channel board and memory to dual-channel board and memory have - will this impact performance much?


A:i7 - Triple Channel VS. Dual Channel

Well it seems that you are upping the CPU from 2.66 to 2.8 this would probably balence out the tripple down to dual channel performance loss if not beat it. But then you are going from 6gb to only 4gb of RAM so that would probably lower performance on some really demanding programs or some seriously intense multi-tasking.

Yes. I take it you mean triple channel memory kits. If so, you would use just 2 out of the 3 sticks. However, dual channel DDR3 kits are available.

Just a quick question that came up in my head while I was reading the chapter about RAM in my hardware book... assuming that I'm building a gaming computer for myself with an i7 CPU and x58 chipset, what would give me better overall performance.... installing 4 memory modules of 2GB each and running on dual-channel mode or installing 3 memory modules of 2GB each and running on triple-channel mode?
thank you

A:8GB DDR3 (dual-channel) x 6GB DDR3 (triple-channel) Which is better?

Depends a lot on how much RAM your applications need. Triple channel is slightly faster, but if you. Err. Run two instances of Crysis, then you might need 8 GiB so the other solution is 'better'.
My vote goes for 3x2...

..Hey gang..built my daughter a system for Xmas which is not going to be 100% I guess, but close..I built a dual-hard drive system one for the kids and one for her to do graphics work..I installed a spinner sata with Win 7 for kids and an SSD with Win 8.1 for her..installed 7 first and then 8 and things were fine, Win 8 would give me a nice screen asking me which OS I wanted to boot to.. but then the spinner started blue screening and grinding so I changed the hd and of course it screwed my boot up and I don't know alot about mbr's and that kind of thing but downloaded EasyBCD and was able to fumble my way through it to luckily get Win 8 back but here's my problem..When I shut down in Win 7 everything is fine as when I start it up I get a bios like screen asking me which OS I want to boot to..but when I shut down in Win 8 it automatically boots back to Win 8 without asking...I have to "restart" to get to the OS choice screen..I don't want to go messing around much further here without some direction as googling my way around miraculously saved me the first time but this problem is a little too convoluted to try and research on my own...Any suggestions greatly appreciated..merry xmas all!

I do online tech support and I frequently get calls about Windows 2000 professional. I know enough about Win2000 to usually help people with their problems, but since our systems at work are still running Win98SE and my home system is running WinXP Pro, I sometimes am a little slow helping my clients navigate around Win2000 and have to use our online menus and tools to do so since I can't remember where everything is. I have a copy of Windows 2000 Pro at home, but opted to install XP so that I could become more familiar with it. I'm having problems getting my ancient CD Burner to work with XP (I've installed every patch for my Roxio software and downloaded every driver for my CDRW drive -- it just doesn't work, Acer even says so on their website...it just works once in a blue moon...not reliable and not worth wasting blanks). The question I have is:
Is it possible to install triple OS's on my computer, granted that I have enough space on my hard drive?
I was thinking about XP as my primary OS, 2000 as a secondary that I would use solely for browsing around to learn on, and finally 98SE solely for using my CD burner. I'm familiar with dual-OS systems, just never even heard of a triple OS. I don't see why it wouldn't work, just wondered if anyone knew if this was possible or not before I started messing around.

By the way, my CD burner more than likely works with Win2000...I guess this whole thing is more of a let's see if I can do... Read more

A:Triple OS's?

I don't have much experience in that area but I do think it would be possible. I have dual booted before and I fount the use of Boot Magic to be advantageous. I don't know how you could do it any other way.

I think the best thing to do though would be to get to the root of the problem.

You say you are using Roxio. I am assuming you are using Easy CD Creator. I love that program when it works (key phrase is “when it works"). I also use XP and have had problems with a LG CD-RW/DVD Player. Lately I have been using Nero. You can get a trial from http://www.nero.com/en/download.htm . I think it's a 30 day. I am using the registered version but the trial is Full Featured. Good alternative to tri-booting just for the sake of burning.

Also, what is the brand of burner (manuf., model number etc.?) I'll see what I can find out.

Also, yes, it is possible. you can technically have infinite, however, things become complicated after 3/4 OSs.

Welcome to TechSpot Forums

There are basically three choices:

1) One graphics card with three outputs
- Matrox Millennium P750
- Matrox Parhelia
- Colorgraphic Xentera GT4
- Appian Phoenix

2) Graphics card with two outputs + graphics card with one output

Either AGP + PCI or PCI + PCI (unless the mainboard is the latest with PCI Express)

- too many to name

3) Three graphics cards with one output each

Most new operating systems should be able to handle multiple graphics cards easily. Some drivers might get confused though if the computer has two or more identical cards.

My choice for basic function, three displays, would be Matrox G550 AGP (dual DVI) and just about any PCI card, like GeForce2MX.

You can make as many partitions as you wish, the hard drive can be hacked up into as many partitions as there are available drive letters left, ex.. c:/, d:/, f:/ and so on. Im not sure what happens after all 26 letters are used. Ive never personally partitioned my drive into that many pieces before. What you have on each partition is only limited to the amont of space and format you give each partition.

?How to? Dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 (Ubuntu installed first)Searching for triple boot was less enlightening, but you get the idea.

Hi balkrish999,I am currently running Windows 7 and Windows 8 Pro (full version, not release preview ). When you install Windows 8 onto that separate partition, Windows Setup will install the Windows 8 bootloader, so you will get the bootloader interface that is in the link you posted. Yes, you will get 3 options: Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8. As for advice on doing this...just make sure that any important information is backed up before you proceed to install Windows. I would also make sure that your hardware has Windows 8 device drivers as well. Windows 8 should detect and install device drivers on its own, but I would still check just to be on the safe side.

I have a gigabyte x58a ud3r motherboard. I previously had two 2g sticks of ocz triple channel ram running dual channel. I bought 3 more 2g sticks. Is it better to run 8g in triple channel or throw the extra stick in there for a total of 10g? In the motherboard manual it said it can only run triple channel in 4 or 6 sticks not 5. Hope this makes sense. Any input appreciated.

A:8G Triple Channel vs. 10g what to do??

What is your peak RAM usage?

If it is under 8, then I'd go with triple channel and 8 gigs.

If you at times use all 8, then you might appreciate running 10 gigs in dual channel because 2 gigs of dual channel is certainly preferable to banging on a page file.

But it's a rare and intensive situation that would use 8 gigs. I have no idea if you are in such a situation.

I suspect that if you ran all 10 gigs in dual channel and never used more than 8, you'd never notice the lack of triple channel.

So it likely wouldn't matter in the real world.
Whoa--I see your user name it Protoolsuser. If you use Protools, the audio app, then maybe you do use all of 8 or 10 gigs. Never used it and don't know how much RAM it likes.

So i just today bought myself a third monitor and then thought to myself .." oh my god.. what have i done.. am i even sure that i can get this to work" haha.. so. heres my set up

1 x radeon 512mb 4850
2 x al1716 acer 17" LCD screens

The third screen i purchased today was a ACER al1711.

I was wondering if i could get a scvideo adapter and plug the new monitor into the svideo plug.. or would that not work?
if so what would i need to do to get all the monitors working together.

The result i'm looking for is display in this video

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Oh and to add to this mess my NEW AL1711 doesn't work properly.
I turn it on.. it displays for a few seconds and then returns to a balck screen although the green power light stays on.
it does this when i plug it in.. or when i change it's resolution.

any help ont his would be awesome as well

Hi there.

Currently I have a dual monitor set-up, with just a 19" and a 17". Doesn't look too smooth and great, with them being different physical sizes yet having the same res, so I'm planning on changing it all round soon and going for a triple monitor set-up. I currently have a 9600GT being used, with a spare 7600GT I can chuck in the spare PCI-E slot of MoBo for the third monitor, so GPU wise, there's no problem.

I can't think of how I want it set up, though.

My ideas are:

17|17|17 (All non-widescreen)

17|19|17 (All non-widescreen)

17|22|17 (17"s are non wide-screen, 22" is widescreen)

This last idea really appeals to me... After doing some BASIC research, it seems the physical sizes of a 17" monitor and a 22" monitor (Height wise) are the same... Do you think this idea could pull off? I would probably have to force a res of 26 pixels less on the 22" monitor, or 26 pixels more on the 17" monitor (As they run 1650 x 1050 and 1280 x 1024, respectively), but I think it could be done...

BUT that would mean I would get a total resolution of 4210 x 1050/1024, which is kind of weird...

Another issue is that this is gonna end up costing more, too. I can get 17" monitors for £60 new (or less, second hand) but just one semi-decent 22" costs double that...

The second idea is kind of gay, but will prove to be the cheapest.

The first idea would mean I could even have my old 19" monitor completely se... Read more

I installed W8 alongside XP-SP2 and W7.

No problem booting under W7 and W8 in triple boot mode. I used EasyBCD to get everything to work nicely.

However, cannot complete launch of XP. When I select it, it starts off normally, displays the XP logo on black background, then the logo on blue background. Afterwards, this logo disappears and there's a bare blue background. After a while, I hear the opening jingle of XP, but still nothing besides an empty blue background.

After a minute or two, the blue xp logo appears with the jingle which accompanies a shutdown. It then gets into an unending loop: the logo remains and every 30 seconds or so, the shutdown jingle plays.

I rebooted and selected Safe mode under XP. Here again, things start off normally with the listing of files on a black background. When we get to the xp logo on a blue background, the screen blinks perpetually in a loop. The xp logo is always there.

I did not interfere at all during the boot process in either of the two modes.

Sounds strange. Any idea?

A:Triple boot XP W7 W8

Hello Gswiss,

I think it has to do with the way the Windows 8 bootloader works.

Unfortunately the Windows 7 and XP bootloaders cannot boot to Windows 8...

You could also use a 3rd party bootloader (i.e. GRUB) to boot all three.

Unfortunately I have no intention of installing Windows 7 or XP together with Windows 8 antytime in the near future to test.

Well, now my system is dual-bootable. The OS are Windows XP pro and Windows 98se. The Windows XP came first then Win98se. Currently Iam using the Windows XP Boot Loader to make a choose.
Now, I would like to install the Win2000 pro again. But once the installation is finished, then how do i force the Windows XP boot loader comes out again and boot safely without any boot crash?
How about I boot into the Windows XP CD and choose REPAIR then in the recovery console, i type FIXBOOT then answer YES. Well, the above steps help me to get the XP Boot Loader back? If no, please show me how to boot into 3 OS without the 3rd party software such as BootMAgic.

A:About triple Boot

Welcome to TSG!

The issue with multiple boot systems is the order in which the OSs are installed. They should be in order of availability (i.e. 98 first, 2k second and XP last). To properly accomplish what you want, you should back up data files, completely remove all partitions and run fdisk /mbr, and load the 98 OS, then 2k then XP. I would put each on a seperate partition, with 98 being on C as you need the boot files on a FAT partition.

I've been searching the internet for quite some time now, but haven't found anything with my specific problem.

I have a asus P5G41T-M LX mobo and a Nvidia Geforce 6200 TC 128mb Graphics card.
The reason for this older card is it's smaller passive cooling so it doesn't get in the way of another pci slot.

I have two monitors connected to the Nvidia card and one on the IGD.
I set the bios to IGD/PEG dual mode.
The screen on the IGD works but only one screen of the Nvidia works.
Win7 x64 does see the 'third' screen saying it works correctly.
But the screen stays in standby and never turns itself on.

When setting the bios to PEG offcourse the IGD screen doesn't work, but now both screens connected to the nvidia card work fine. So there is nothing wrong with cables and connections.

Does anybody have a clue as what the problem is? Does it have to do with different resolutions or frequencies? Or is there not enough graphics memory? I have no idea

I use win7 x64 basic and it's not connected to the net so it's never been updated. I did however tried with installing the latest intel IGD and Nvidia drivers.

So I decided to play around with my graphic cards and have 2 systems. Each are almost identical.. one being slightly faster then the other. So I decided to put them head to head in a few benchmarking test. The phenomenon that occured blew my mind. The triple SLI GTS 250, which is in the slower system, was outperforming and remaining cooler then the GTX480.. I decided.. lets play crysis.. got a friend to come over and loaded Crysis on very high 1920x1200 4xAA on both systems and took it for a test run. We idle about the same.. 32 FPS and when the action started to get going the GTX480 at times dropped to 11 FPS while the triple sli gts 250 would drop down to about 21 FPS.. So this bit of information intrigued me and I decided to share it with all of you.
