Q: Daisy chaining multiple displayport monitors to a asus z87 pro mobo pc

Hi guys,
i have a dell 3008 wfp monitor connect via displayport to an asus z87 pro pc. I have just bought an additional displayport monitor,a Philips BDM4065UC.

My specific problem is that the mobo only has one displayport out socket, not two, so i am wondering if you can help me figure out how to connect both DP monitors to my pc.

thanks for looking

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 have a lenovo x230t computer with Windows 7. I contacted dell asking them if their u2414h monitor support displayport daisy chaining and told me if would. I bought 3 of these monitors. I have connected my laptop (which has displayport) to the first monitor which has mini dp in. Then, connected dp out on the first monitor to mini dp in on the second monitor. Lastly, I connected dp out on the second monitor to mini dp in on the 3rd monitor.

The problem is I cannot get the external monitors to show different things. The computer treats them as one and duplicates their displays. I have tried with another laptop and a mac and get the same results. I tried contacting dell and got a lot of transfers and then to a guy that knew nothing at all. On top of that, he wanted to charge me $130 when I just got these monitors and I should receive free help to get their products working the way they are supposed to.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello all, As the Yoga 720 15'' has only one Thunderbolt port, with no other ports for connecting more displays, I'm looking for a solution for connecting two monitors through this single port. The problem is that the Thunderbolt 3 to dual DisplayPort adapters do not seem to be working on this laptop for some reason according to threads on this forum. (although it has the appropriate hardware I suppose?)I saw a solution using the Lenovo Thunderbolt Dock, but it's quite expensive... I thought to myself: suppose I have two monitors that supported DisplayPort daisy chaining, could I use this ability and connect them to the laptop? Connecting one monitor directly to the laptop, and then connecting the other monitor to the first one using daisy chaining. Like so:Yoga -> Thunderbolt to DispalyPort adapter -> Monitor 1 -> DisplayPort -> Monitor 2.  I couldn't find any info about this method (only that it is possible on the XPS 15 which also has Thunderbot with two lanes only...)  Have someone already tried this method? Or could try it? (pretty please... )Or could at least tell me if it is possible? I'm really looking forward to buying this laptop and this is the main reason that stops me...  Note: I am aware about the bandwith limitations. I plan to use only two 2K displays. Thank you!

Its so simple...I'm confused.

ASUS P8 Z77-V LK mobo has 1 each VGA, HDMI, DVI-D & Display

At first I was not confused thinking I could use VGA or DVI for my monitor and HDMI or VGA for my TV

Then I started reading about 'Display Port' and confusion set in.

1. -> Can I just use HDMI & DVI off the board at the same time to use 2 monitors ?

2. -> or Do I have to use an adapter and 'Display Port' for the 2nd monitor ?

But only monitor one shows anything. Do I need to download separate NVidia drivers or something? Thanks!

I have two routers at my house. One is a standard 4 port Linksys router, the other is a 4 port Belkin 54g wireless router. I want to have my cabel modem plug into my Linksys router in my garage (my modem's there) and I have it 4 cables running to 4 different rooms. I want to chain my wireless off the connection that comes to my room.

When I do this, I have many DHCP problems. For example, I can't forward ports, because when I want to forward ports on my Linksys, it gets confused because my Belkin's scope runs off of 192.168.2.x, and my Linksys can forward a port to my IP (b/c it uses 1.x). I'm getting VERY frustrated, because I can't seem to control BOTH routers when they are daisy chained (since I couldn't forward the port, I had to just plug my computer into my Linksys).

If you have any ideas, PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks !

I just recently moved into a new apt. Where the landlady has set up a wireless daisy chain across all 5 floors using tplink's WA730RE's. The issue is, which is expected, slow and often unreliable WiFi connectivity. I sometimes have to power cycle the repeaters more than twice a day to get them working...

Now, since these repeaters can be set up as wireless bridges, what would be the best practice in order to get, as much as possible, a better overall performance on the network? I have a spare router that I could hook up into one of the repeaters, that can be used as a wap, in order to break up the packet load. But will connecting it through a cable from the repeater actually work?

P.s. The base router is on the 2nd floor and then there is a repeater in each hallway up to the 5th floor. So I was guessing connecting the wap on the 4th floor...

Any ideas on how to make it work best?

A:Question about daisy chaining

Read other 6 answers

Greetings. I'm wondering if there are performance hits if you use several daisy-chained switches versus running cable from each work station to one switch. For example, you have 16 users with four users each in four offices. You could run 16 cables from each workstation to one switch, or you could put a 5-port switch in each of the four offices and run only four cables back to the main switch. Is there a performance difference between these two scenarios? Thanks.

A:Daisy-chaining switches

Under normal loading conditions, this will work fine.

It's not an ideal situation, since there are some potential bottlenecks. If you have a lot of traffic between workstations in different offices, the connections to the small switches may have excessive traffic. If you have a gigabit connection from the server to the switch, the same situation applies to the path between an individual workstation and the server.

I have a Cooler Master CM 690 Case with 3 fans stock and Cooler Master 600W silent pro PSU, ASUS M4A77TD MOBO (one fan plug other than cpu fan)....

I planned on running 7 case fans total 6x120mm and 1x80mm (stock exhaust)

Stock fans all came with 3 pin to Molex adapters but aftermarket are just 3 pin

Would I be better served to get more 3 pin to Molex adapters and daisy chain fans off a couple psu molex plugs, let's say 4 fans on 1, 3 on another, or just spring for a fan controller?

I'm saavy about basic electrical but not sure how many amps these fans use, I know it can't be much, and the PSU is a 40A single rail.

Thanks for any advice.

A:Daisy chaining fans

The fans are going to be pretty low amp (less than one, likely something like .3), you can daisy chain them and it will be fine. But I think the best solution would be a fan controller. I guess it comes down to how 'nicely' you want to do it. Personally I'd just wire them all off of a molex or 2 and be done with it, but I think a lot of people are going to want to tell you to do it the 'proper' way and use a controller.

Either way will work fine.

I have a question about daisy chaining power backup (UPS). Let?s assume I have 2 new identical UPS. If I hook up one the wall, the second one into the first one, and the entire computer the second one (so wall socket > 1st UPS > 2nd UPS > computer) will I be facing any issues? Such as oscillation between UPS?s when power kicks out?

I know that I will have a problem if 2nd UPS draws more power what 1st UPS can provide when power fails.


A:Daisy chaining power backup (UPS)

I wouldn't think there would be an issue. I think the first UPS should output a cleaner signal than the wall does (sine wave vs blocky), which the 2nd UPS should be fine with.

Hi all, I am trying to learn the proper way to configure 4 new 24-port HPE 1820 managed switches in the same physical rack. Model J9980A. The old switches were un-managed, and configured in a simple daisy chain. While it does work, I am sure performance is suffering and there have been occasions with looping issues.

Now, I am not a network technician, just a technically inclined person tasked with looking after the building's equipment. I have a fair bit of experience with basic networking, but VLAN, stacks, link aggregation, etc are things I don't have much experience with. We also use Untangle as our router.

So I am wondering with managed switches if there's a better method than "daisy chaining" for connectivity. Would getting the fiber-optic cabling and using the SFP Ports be beneficial? Or another method?

Thanks for any tips on what I should be looking to do so I can read up on it further.

Dear Community, I'm considernig a switch from Dell Latitude 5590 to T580 or another newer T-series model but I'm not sure what is the actual support of MST (Daisy Chaining) technology + Power Delivery using the same USB-C cable. To be more specific, I'm mostly using monitors like P2419HC / P2419H from Dell and HC one is connected directly to the Dell laptop while additional H monitors are Daisy Chained with HC. The main problem I have with this Dell laptop is really mediocre display and keybaord that feels cheap. I haven't yet tested T580 but I hope the keyboard feels better. And, before trying, I wanted to ensure that Daisy Chaining is really supported. Thanks in advance.

I want to hookup an older scanner to my computer. An adapter or card is cost prohibitive and I was advised that the best way to do it is to daisy chain the scanner off of my printer.

I have an HP Laser Jet II Printer and an Envisions 24 Pro Scanner (U-Max Engine). I was told that the scanner should be at the end of the chain. The HP Printer has a serial port next to the printer port connection. Also, there is an unassigned space next to the serial port. The unassigned space has a metal plate fastened with two screws and the words written accross that say "other devices".

My question is -- "Does the serial port on the HP support data out or only data in"? The Envisions 24 Pro Scanner has a 50-pin scuzzy connection on the scanner side and the other end of the cable fits the serial port on the printer perfectly. I haven't tried plugging it in because the printer cable has a 90 degree style connector that is blocking the serial port. I figured it wouldn't be worth the trouble of finding another printer cable unless I knew for sure that the serial port on the printer supported data in?

Hi all

I have read so many posts on different forums concerning daisy chaining routers and there seem to be so many opinions out there that my head is spinning, so my apologies if this has been asked before, but I could really use some help!

Okay, my normal setup is Internet --> Cable Modem --> Wired Router (SMC 7004 ABR) (Router A, say) WAN port --> PC1, PC2, PC3 & PC4 on Router A LAN ports.

Router A default settings are:

IP Address:
Subnet Mask: (not changeable)
DHCP Server: Enabled
Start IP:
End IP:

I got a good deal on Boxing Day on a Wireless Router ($9.88) (TRENDnet TEW-432BRP) (Router B, say) and thought I'd use it to add wireless capabilities to my (already "full" (4 ports)) home network so I could use additional laptops around the house without having to be hard-wired to the network.

Router B default settings are:

IP Address:
Subnet Mask: (changeable)
DHCP Server: Enabled
Start IP:
End IP:
All ports WAN/LAN are Auto-MDIX

What I did was disconnect the cable from PC 4 on Router A and plug it into Router B WAN port, and reconnect PC 4 to one of the LAN ports on the back of Router B.

PC4 and any wirelessly connected laptop can access the Internet through Router B --> Router A --> Cable Modem --> Internet without any problem, as can any of the PCs 1, 2 or 3 still connected to Router A. ... Read more

A:Daisy chaining routers & Windows printer sharing


Seems a bit long winded, for a few pounds/bucks/kroner/yen buy a hub to extend the ports on a router.

Also consider buying a jetdirect printer box, it allows you to share a printer with any PC.

The problem you have with the routers is that you have a different range of IP's on router B to router A, the only other way round it is to see if the routers will act as a bridge, this means that router B will get its IP address via router A and stay in the same IP range.

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.

Hi All, I have a brand new Elitebook 850g3 (T9X36EA), a HP Slimline dock (D9Y32ET)  and two Dell P2415Qb 24" monitors. My aim is to extend my desktop to the two external Dell monitors  whiclst still viewing the display on the EliteBook. The monitors are DP monitors with MST technology so am able to set one as a primary and one as a secondary. I can achieve my goal simply when the laptop is off the dock (See image)But on the dock I get nowhere with it. I noticed the dock had a firmware update on the drivers page which specifically talks about the DP functionality, but on running the update it tells me I am already running at the latest FW version on the dock. At best, I can extend my desktop to one Dell monitor which duplicates to the other. I know my cabling is setup correctly and that the equipment is ok as it works off the dock, I have been banging my head for a while now, so any help would be really appreciated. ThanksPaul

Hello Tech Support Guys, I have this problem for a while now and I need your assistance.
I have a GTX1060 6gb and anything I try to plug in my 3 displayports flickers, 'goes blackscreen' and shows a lot of tearing. It happens in and out of games. It doesn't happen on the DVI or the HDMI ports.

I do have a monitor that supports both HDMI and displayport, but since I use a VR headset, having to plug and unplug the HDMI cable to use VR is annoying (Oculus CV1 uses HDMI). Also, freesync would be great.

My progress so far:
**I have noticed that, the lower the resolution on the monitor (and the refresh rate), the better the displayport performs. "Great" at 1024 x 768 resolution. It's a usefull trick to use while playing in VR.
**already tried two displayport cables and two displayport to hdmi adapters.
**already tried using DDU to reinstall my nvidia drivers​

Anyone have any idea of what is happening?
Are my 3 displayports damaged?
Should I keep using the displayport or is it a risk for my monitor?

Hello, I'm wondering if it's possible to have a dual monitors on the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 using both the VGA and DisplayPort at the same time. Will this allow me to extend the display to both monitors? If not, what will I need to purchase to gain this capability? Thanks,John

A:Using VGA in conjunction with DisplayPort for dual monitors ...

The VGA port and Display Port perform the same function just in different ways.  VGA is analog and Display Port is digital.  Unfortunately, it's not going to work the way you think.  You will be looking at the same information on two different monitors without the ability to drag and drop from one to the other.  In order to have a true dual monitor experience, you would need to purchase an inexpensive video card like the VisionTek Radeon PCI card which is specifically designed for this functionality.  This is due to the fact that the dual monitor ability has to be configured via the software that comes with the stand alone card. I hope this helps.

I have read various threads on how to resolve this but none of them work for me.

A) I can't change the EDID setting for my Intel 4600 graphics card (if I can, I can't figure out where)
B) I have gone into the monitor menu settings and disabled the DDC/CI Support on both monitors
C) I have changed the computers power mgmt settings to NOT sleep, hibernate or anything of the sort

Problem 2:
The above really drives me nuts. However, now a new issue has occurred and the driving me nuts has turned into driving me mad. I have an external hard drive connected to this computer, I am running Samsung's SmartView so my TV can access all the movies/tv shows on that hard drive. When I power off monitors, my TV can no longer see/access the SmartView app and/or the external hard drive.

So if I am downstairs and want to stream a movie from this external hard drive, I must go back up stairs and power on the monitors.

I know I am not... Read more

Not able to get two monitors (Samsung S27E450) plugged into a ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 docking unit to work with my X1 Yoga (Gen 2).   Montiors connected to docking via DisplayPort cables.   Windows 10 shows the monitors showing up as "Generic PnP" so something is being recognized.  Tried deleting the device in Device Manager, reboot.  Not finding the drivers on the Samsung site.   Any help appreciated.

Having received a brand-new P51 directly from Lenovo, i am facing major issues attaching external monitors.Win10 image from factory, all windows updates, all driver updates as recommended by Lenovo companion. Manually reinstalled graphics drivers, driver update using windows does not detect newer ones. Latest BIOS (1.15). Upon suggestion of lenovo changed BIOS mode from hyprid to discrete.I have these two issues from day 1:When i attach a monitor using the right hand side mini displayport, it is not recognized. Monitor stays in stand-by, no sound played, nothing happens. Inserting the same cable into the port of a W540 (Win 8.1) monitor immediately wakes up and can be used up to its full resolution (3440x1440).inserting laptop into ultradock (230W) it only recognizes one attached monitor. BIOS password entry lock was not shown on external monitor when lid was closed, needed to enter "blind" and press enter, only upon windows boot the monitor (Lenovo 27") was recognized. i think after changing to discrete mode now it showed the lock symbol when starting with closed lid. but still no second monitor is recognized.This is the first thinkpad in my history where such basic things do not work at all.I noticed once i had Intel and Nvidia context menu items when presing right mouse botton on desktop screen, now i only have "Nvidia Control Panel" and "nView Desktop Manager" shown. Which may or may not be ok. Lenovo seems not to be able to help - they are quite anxious to get it so... Read more

I have two 27" 2560x1440 60hz monitors that are plugged into the new Pro side-connect dock (40AH) with a new T480 (Intel 620 integrated graphics) in Windows 10 Pro. I can get either monitor to work fine with the dock individually, but trying to run both simultaneously by extending or duplicating the desktop between them seems to fail as selecting either option under Display Settings just makes the primary monitor black out for a few seconds then come back - the secondary monitor stays black.  There's no error msg or popup that would help me investigate further unfortunately. I'm trying this with the T480's lid closed, and I'm running the latest 1.14 BIOS update and latest Intel HD graphics drivers. This setup worked fine on my old OneLink dock and X1 Carbon previously, so I don't think it's an issue with the monitors themselves. Anyone have a similar setup with the new Pro dock that's working?

This problem has the configuration listed in my system specs below, which have just changed recently. My OCZ Vertex 2 died, RMA'ed but sold, and replaced with the Transcend SSD720, 2.5" SATAIII 64GB. Also sold my GPU...

Now, trying to get everything back on track. I reinstalled my OS on the SSD, but I can't for the life of me get the HDMI working. When reinstalling, I knew it was normal for only my Dell CRT to show up via its VGA connection, but then the main ViewSonic HD monitor never came on. I finally realized it wasn't responding to anything. The ViewSonic HD monitor is the only thing plugged in right now, on both VGA & HDMI, but will only work on the VGA. It had been working fine before the OCZ SSD died. No VGA problems. The onboard ATI Radeon HD 4250 is fully updated and all the drivers are installed and updated to the best of my knowledge. There is an update for the BIOS on the ASUS website that I had never installed, ever, but the only change from before was the SSD so that should not matter. I've even made sure I installed the specific driver for the monitor from the disc it came with. I tried playing around in BIOS, and (for once) no matter what graphics device order I set, (i.e., IGPX-PCI-GPX-etc) it always reverted to the mobo's VGA. And obviously, Device Manager is showing no yellow question marks and is generally no help right now...

Again, there is NO longer a standalone GPU/video card in this system, just the ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3's onboard inter... Read more

A:Mobo not detecting HDMI? - ATI Radeon HD 4250 onboard ASUS mobo

It's plausible that your HDMI port on your MOBO is dead. Is it possible to obtain a GPU and try it's HDMI port?
It could be your monitor as well, do you have access to anything else supporting HDMI and see if your monitor connects?

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, 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.

I'm trying to use 3 external monitors on my T470s, but it's only giving me the option to select 2 of the 3 external monitors when all three are hooked up.  I'd like to disable my built-in display because it's smaller and darker, but it doesn't give me the option to select anything else for the 3rd slot.  I've tried both HDMI ports on the dock and on the PC with no success.  Is it even possible to have 3 extended (independent) external displays using this laptops hardware?

Does ATI cards conflict with this mobo?
ASUS A8V DELUXE Socket 939 VIA K8T800 Pro ATX AMD Motherboard
I heard there would be 'cause the mobo is a VIA. Is that true?
Should the mobo conflict with any of these below and forgive me for the video in a CPUs, Chipsets and Mobos board,
SAPPHIRE Radeon 9550 256MB 128-bit DDR AGP 4X/8X Video Card and or
ATI All-In-Wonder Radeon X800XT 256MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO AGP 4X/8X

Tried to get HP support to give some similar board model from ASUS' own models so I could get the correct Asus AI Suite to control fans, read system info. The similar Asus model they gave didn't even have the same chipset. I'm not sure if that truly matters as far as their AI Suite working correctly. Just need a reliable program to adjust case fan speeds a bit. Simpler is better.

1) Does anyone know how I can cross the HP / Asus board w/ some similar model on Asus' site to get the correct version of AI Suite?

2) If no to # 1, suggestions on reliable prgms that will allow controlling fan speeds?
Fairly sure this mobo has the ability to adjust fans. 1st tried SpeedFan - no options to adjust any fans (reports them), but MSI Afterburner had no trouble adjusting GPU fan.

None of several socket 775 boards I looked at on Asus' site had G33 chipset.

The info HP has for this mobo is

Manufacturer's motherboard name: Asus IPIBL-TX
HP/Compaq name: Burbank-GL8E
Form Factor Micro-ATX: 24.4 cm (9.6 inches) x 24.4 cm (9.6 inches)
Chipset Intel G33
Front-side bus speed 800/1066/1333 MHz (processor dependent)
Processor upgrade information
Socket type: 775
