I have a dell pc with an nvidia quadro nvs 420 video card. I am currently running 2 monitors off the video card - a dell 24inch widescreen and a dell 19inch. The 24inch connects directly through an hdmi cable. the 19inch utilized a bizlink dvi to hdmi converter that allows it to plug into the dongle from the video card. the bizlink connector also has a usb feed coming out of it that I connect into the pc.
I have a second 19inch that I would also like to use. I have a dvi to hdmi connector, but it is just a straight cable connector, not a bizlink. So I connect that to the video card and run a usb cable from the monitor to the pc. I am able to utilize the usb ports from the monitor, but the display is not detected.
Does anyone have any idea how I can get this working? Do I have to use a bizlink connector?
Thanks for any thoughts.
EDIT - The exact cabling is as follows - there are two "dongles" coming out of the video card that each have 2 hdmi slots. One has an hdmi cable that comes directly from the 24inch monitor and one empty slot. The second has one slot connected to the bizlink connector. The bizlink connector is connected via dvi cable to my monitor. Also, coming from the bizlink connector to the pc is a usb connection. this also has one empty slot.
I attempted to hook up the third monitor to either empty slot. for this monitor, I have a dvi to hdmi cable.
Hope that makes sense.
