Multiple displays in classroom

Q: Multiple displays in classroom

I am a teacher with a large classroom. The room us very narrow, but long. Consequently, I inevitably have students in the back that can't see. To get around this problem, I am trying to have both a front-of-room and back-of-room display.

My main computer connects to a projector. I currently splice those so that I drag what I want to display over to the projector screen.

I have a 2nd computer in the back of the room, connected to a Promethean board. I would like to set it up so that whatever is showing up on my projector screen, also shows on that 2nd computer, and therefore the Promethean.

Any ideas of how I could accomplish this?

We use Windows 7/10 if that factors in.

Thank you!!!

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 was going to type up what I want to do, but I think that a post from this July sums it up pretty well. Hopefully someone will reply to it this time:

"I am using the 15" TFT as the primary display, and the 21" TV for games...this is working fine as long as I switch exclusively to the relevent display and work from there...e.g switch to TV then launch a game...

However I'd like to be able to configure the setup so that the main display remains on the 15" and I can launch games from here and they then go to the 21" TV, while the main windows desktop remains on the TFT...and if i'm being greedy, it would be good if i could somehow lock the controls to each display, so that I could keep a game on display2, while using display 1...e.g a game is playing and doesnt minimise the moment I open a window on desktop1...at the moment I have been unable to achieve this, the majority of software works fine, I just drag teh dialog box and expand it on the display I want...

But the likes of Vice City REFUSES to maximise to the second desktop...I'm using Hyrdravision and there is no individual application setting configurable for the likes of Vice City...does anyone know of any generic multiple display software which may be better than Hydra?"

I didn't post that the first time, but it is pretty much exactly the same thing I need to do now. Does anyone know if it's possible?

I'm having a bit of trouble trying to get two monitors, a small 1024x768 LCD, and a 46" 1920x1080 TV, to display the same wallpaper at different resolutions. My graphics card is older, a Nvidia Quadro FX 1700, but it is perfectly capable of driving both displays at the same time. It's a minor annoyance, but I'd like to get it working if it's possible. Thanks.

A:Multiple Resolutions on Multiple Displays

There is a free piece of software that allows you to use different wallpapers easily on two different displays so you could just use two different files at different resolutions even though it would be the same background.
Here is the link:

I have a desktop set up with 2 displays, at the moment they are next to each other and i have an extended desktop.

I now want to clone or Duplicate these displays, i can do this but the resolutions have to be the same. One Display is 1600*1024 and the other is 1920*1080.

Is there any way i can have the same image on both screens, but with different resolutions? any third party software??

ive noticed some people have two monitors for one computer and they show different things
how do you do that and why? i mean whats the purpose fo doing it? it looks cool and i want to try it
idk if this is the right forum section

A:Multiple Displays

This would probably be better in Hardware, but anyways to answer your question: Many people use dual screens if they work in business and have to view full-screen spreadsheets, and still want another screen to do other things on. If you want to compare 2 pictures side-by-side, you can use a dual-screen. Basically, it's not like having 2 screens, though. It's like instead of having a 1024x768 resolution screen, you have a 2048x768 screen split in half. You need a newer graphics card with proper connections (2 of them) and you need 2 monitors, of course. Then, you can just make a dual-display in your display settings.

Somehow my computer is detecting that I have two displays. I only have one display and that is my TV. I'm using an HDMI cable that is hooked into my Radeon HD 7950 card. I have went into both Catalyst and the Windows screen resolution tool and they are both detecting multiple displays. I'm not quite understanding how. I've tried disabling the display from the Windows tool, no results. I've tried deleting the display from Device Manager, no results. I would normally just ignore this but my mouse can go off screen and I can accidentally drag programs over onto my second display that doesn't exist. I've also tried just combining the two displays into one but that lowers my screen resolution. Any ideas on how to fix it?

Found a setting in Catalyst in a category I didn't think to look in. Deleted display. Problem solved.

A:Multiple displays without having multiple displays?

In CCC go to desktop management, select the monitor that does not exist, right click it and click on disable.
Ultimately, you could uninstall both your display adapters, and let windows reinstall them when you reboot your computer.

Hi,

This is a really dumb question, and being in IT I should probably know the answer...But what do I need to set up multiple displays on a windows XP PC? I want to have 2 x 22" LCD screens linked, so I can drag items onto either screen and work with programs on either display...ie, effectively giving me 44" display.

I assume I would need two video cards, and not just a card with 9 pin and HDMI output? Does it matter what sort of card I purchase? Or does it need to be compatible with the multiple display system on XP?

Hi Pankie !

Did you reinstall the drivers ?

Start with the motherboard's chipset drivers, you'll find them on the motherboard's manufacturer's website. You need to install the chipset drivers before anything else.

Then reinstall the video drivers :

I have a Dell laptop with a docking station and a Gateway EV910 monitor
attached. Normally I have the laptop screen as primary and only turn on the extra monitor if I need extra space.

Most of the time it works fine, but sometimes if I just close the lid for the night, when I open it there is no display. If I turn on the secondary display I find my desktop. That's happened now and I cannot get the primary display back to my laptop.

Yes, I can, by doing a system restore to a couple of days ago, it worked fine, but I have added AVG and don't want to have to re-download. When I go to Display>Properties>Settings, and click on the Secondary icon, I get a popup window that says "Secondary Display (1600, 200), not a chance to check 'Use this device as the primary monitor' as documented in a Microsoft document I found through Help and Support. Anyone understand multiple display support who's willing to help? It sure would be appreciated.

I realize it wouldn't be a real big deal to restore and download AVG again, but I really think there is a way to do this without backing up, I just don't know where to find it.

Hi,

I've been browsing the web to find an answer for my question, but with no luck.

I use Windows 7 on a PC which is setup to be both an office and an entertainment computer. Therefore it's connected to two seperate screens with one graphic card. The screens are one 19" desktop screen (1280x1024) and one 40" Samsung LCD TV (1920x1080). When I'm browsing the web, working with documents etc. I use the desktop screen and when I watch movies, pictures etc. I use the TV.

Now I'm trying to switch between them in an easy way. I've tried several third party applications but eventually found that the best way to switch between these in fact is to use Windows 7 built-in software. I've setup Windows to recognize the two seperate screens and I switch between them by using the "Multiple Displays" option in the settings. I then switch by using "show desktop only on 1/2".

Do anyone know if this switch can be done by using a hotkey combination through Windows or through some other software? It's not the end of the world right clicking the desktop and doing it, but it'd be nice to save a few clicks every time.

I'm thankful for any help!

Best regards,

A:Problem setting up multiple displays

I don't believe you can use S-Video to setup a second display. I haven't used that type of output in ages, but I believe you can only output (ie: clone) the main desktop.

S-Video is low resolution. Depending on the video chipset and TV, 640x480 or maybe 800x600. Thus the reason why you loose the image as Windows loads. The BIOS and Windows loading screen are VGA (640x480), as Windows loads, the video drivers and desktop settings are loaded (which are likely higher than supported by S-Video).

Set the desktop resolution to 640x480, shutdown Windows and power off the PC. Connect the TV to the S-Video output, power on the TV, and then boot into Windows. You should have an image on the monitor and TV.

A:Running applications on multiple displays

Hey,

Apparently this little program does exactly that, among other things
http://realtimesoft.com/ultramon/

Just as a word of advice, having 2 monitor's doesn't mean you have 2 computers, so if you're running the CPU intensive application on the 2nd monitor, things you do on the 1st one will lag. Also, if you switch monitor's while playing a game, it's the same as the game window losing focus so it's likely to pause the game or minimize itself.

Plus most games will change your screen resolutions so it could stuff things up a bit.

Hope this helps

Yes. I have a two monitor set up, (with an "extended desktop")
One I have in portrait, the other in landscape.
These are primarily for desktop publishing purposes.

I had always wondered how anyone would like it for gaming.
Seems to me the movement between screens, and breaks in field of vision could be issues.
But, I am not a gamer, so what would I know.

Cons? for me?
Holding my neck / head in one position for extended periods ,
other than a centered/neutral position,
can result in some neck pain.
Solution is to compensate by how I position myself,
and using the dual monitor stand's full ability to tilt, swivel etc.
Younger persons may not notice the issue as much.

I cannot imagine how I would use a set up with more than two monitors though.

This stand has been excellent for my purposes.
They also make a four monitor (2x2) version,
and I have seen stands where you can mount 3 monitors side by side.

By the way this set up is used alternately with..
a) Dell Vostro 3550 Laptop (has an i3 processor, and both HDMI and VGA out)
b) On board graphics with a Gigabye GA-Z77X-UD5H (has two HDMI, plus DVI, plus VGA)
So, no fancy graphics card setups here!

Hi,
My system acts in a very unstable fashion as far as multiple displays settings. Whenever I connect my pc to my tv, the tv display becomes my primary display. This is a very unfortunate situation, since I'm required to manage my pc via remote control, with my mouse, which is located attached to my pc in one room, and a tv display, located in another room.
Since I managed to perform a comprehensive configuration using this cumbersome procedure, I would like to keep it ready for use if/when a need arises.
Does win7 keep its multiple displays configuration in its registry? If so, where? Is it anywhere else? I would like to keep a copy of the setting material and use it whenever a need arises.

A:Where does win7 keep its multiple displays configuration

Does NVIDIA have a program like the ATI Catalyst Control. Iv never worked with NVIDIA before

Hi all,

I have just set up an ultrawide monitor (3440x1440) as my primary display, and have a second (extended) display at 1920x1080. Obviously, due to the vastly different aspect ratios, using a shared slideshow isn't going to work, so is there any way at all I can use separate sets of images to create a slideshow for each screen?

Thanks!

Is it possible with one hdmi output port on my laptop to connect that to a device which is then connected to two monitors with hdmi in to extend a display from my laptop instead of duplicating the displays?

I have seen hdmi splitters, but all that does is mirror the display I believe. I have also seen hdmi switches which only allows you to output to one screen at a time.

I have not seen any device that can extend the monitor display through hdmi, so I would say it doesn't exist, but thought I would ask first. Thanks.
 

A:Extend Multiple Displays Through 1 HDMI Port

Depending on the video chipset in the laptop, you may be able to extend the desktop onto a single monitor or use a monitor as your primary desktop. But you can only connect a single monitor to a HDMI port.

I just got a Dell S2817Q 4k monitor - GREAT monitor, BTW.
However, it wants me to connect HDMI to HDMI, USB to USB, AND DP to mDP on my desktop.
The problem is the mobo does not have an mDP to connect TO, but it does have a DP.
And the Dell monitor has both a DP and an mDP on it, so I connected the mDP on the monitor to the DP on the VC, which is another brand GTX 1050Ti. This is opposite of the instructions that came with the monitor, but there is no other way to do this with this Mobo or VC.
I connected the USB to the USB.
I have NOT connected the HDMI on the Dell monitor to anything.
Is the above the best way to do this?  Is the quality and speed the same? It appears to be good, it's a lot better than my 10 yr old XP system, but I don't know if it is the best it can be.  ??
The above leads into my second question:
I have a second monitor hooked up, another 27" but it is not 4K or QHD. We will call it my 'HP'.
I have an HDMI on the HP connected to the HDMI on the VC.
For clarity:
mDP on the Dell to the DP on the VC
USB on the Dell to USB on the mobo.
HDMI on the HP to HDMI on the VC.
I have nothing hooked up to the Mobo HDMI or DP.
Is the above the best practice?
Would wiring it another way give me better video quality?

I have dual displays and whenever I move a Word file from the primary display to the secondary display the file shrinks, most of it disappers, and the text is distorted.  It cannot be expanded to full size or closed, or edited in any way.  The
only thing that can be done with it is move it back to the primary display.  I use the Windows 7 Home Premium operating system, NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 display adapter, and Dell U2311H and U2312 HM DVI monitors.  Any fixes?

Hi, I have a Lenovo X1 Carbon running Windows 10. I would like to connect an external monitor and my only option seems to be using the HDMI port and using a HDMI to VGA cable. I plug this into a Philips 24" ext monitor and nothing I try can get me to
duplicate or extend my display. I just get a message on the ext monitor of "Check Cable Connection". New cable, and new laptop.
How can I even check, if the HDMI port is enabled or is there some other hidden switch / setting / feature I need to turn on first. I have tried the display settings and 'Detect' but nothing.
Any thoughts please. 
Kind Regards,
David

I am trying to extend the taskbar to my 2nd monitor on Windows 8.1

I tried to use the tutorial on this site but I don't have any of those options. This is what it looks like for me:

Is there any other way? Thank you.

PS - If it makes a difference: Primary computer resolution: 3200 x 1800
2nd monitor: 1920 x 1200

A:No option to extend taskbar on multiple displays on 8.1

I personally use Ultramon, which is fully Win8 compatible - however as this is commercial software, you may wish to check out alternatives

UltraMon Alternative and Competitors list some, I cannot recommend any of these from experience but it is at least a start point
