Since HP's cable is bloody expensive, you can add the pull-up inside the monitor itself. This allows it to work with any DP cable. The pull-up that worked for me was 10k (even if the specs say it should be 100k - I tried and the monitor wasn't detected). Solder it between C278 (it's connected to DP pin 17, AUXn) and unfitted nearby resistor that goes to DP ...

I had the same problem with my even older Geforce GT320M. Eventually I forced a custom resolution and this worked perfectly. Just be careful to ensure you do know the actual maximum native resolution. NVidia Control Panel > Display > Change resolution > Customize

I fixed it. I re-download and install the driver. It seems that I shouldn't use such software for dealing with my drivers.

VGA to HDMI will work most certainly, although VGA doesn't carry audio like HDMI does. Probably irrelevant if we're only talking computer monitors. As for the VGA -> USB, if you're running Linux, I wouldn't bother as such things are a pain there. On Windows though, it's likely to work.

The poor quality of the question doesn't give us much to work on but the picture could give us a better clue (and from previous experience of seeing similar screens) It could be a CPU/heatsink heat problem (the machine looks quite old so the thermal paste may be cracked/failed)? Your graphics card may be broken/overheating? If it's "on-board" GPU then a ...

In a laptop, the screen is connected using an LVDS or eDP interface, and these just transfer a series of pixel for the screen over and over again, not caring about lines. The data is converted into lines inside the LCD screen. Hence, the problem can only happen in the screen itself. Artifacts like bright colored horizontal or vertical lines appear when ...

I use a piece of software called DisplayFusion to manage multiple monitor profiles. It can save and restore preset configurations, including spanning and even virtual sub-monitor splits. It also has window management features that I find very useful. I am in no way affiliated with the publisher, Binary Fortress, other than being a customer.

Check your Asus notebook user's manual. By default the video port for the external display is disabled on laptops/notebooks in order to conserve battery power and reduce electromagnetic emissions. You have to explicitly enable output to the video port. Typically the combination of the Fnkey plus one of function keys (e.g. F8) controls this on laptops.

Unfortunately, your laptop screen is unfixable. You will have to order a replacement LCD panel.

HDMI is digital only. DVI can be digital and/or analog, known as DVI-I (digital+analog), DVI-A (analog), DVI-D (digital). So Converters with DVI on one side and VGA (analog) or HDMI (digital) will work sometimes. Consider DVI out on a grafics card. It could output digital and analog the adapter to VGA will work then as well as one to HDMI. Consider a grapics ...

What I do for my setup, with two monitors for two computers, is to use both inputs of the monitors (they each have VGA & DVI). The VGA both go to computer A, the DVI go to computer B. I then have a KVM with just the keyboard and mouse on it. Then you can switch monitor configurations using the monitor buttons, and keyboard/mouse using the KVM. ...

AFAIK, there is no equivalent of the IPMI protocol for monitors. But, there are intelligent remote power strips you can buy that can be controlled via USB/Ethernet [and even RS/232]. They allow a computer to turn the individual sockets on/off at will. They sometimes come with software. But, in any case, the protocol is usually very simple and can often be ...

To my knowledge, Windows does not have the ability to set specific monitors to sleep. The best alternatives I can give you are to: Change your display settings to only show windows on the monitors you want (Which, if you are doing regularly, could become tedious and/or tiresome) Turn off the monitors you don't want on by their power button. (This is also ...

I had this issue with a computer going to screen saver. When it resumed, my windows were re sized. I solved it by changing to another screen saver and then reverting back to the "photos slide show" screen saver.

Try holding down all four arrow keys and then pressing the power button, this will recover the Bios and hopefully solve your issue. For future reference, beeps and flashes all have meanings. http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01732674

Solve it ! OK so that's the solution for the problem (in my case). i opened my screen (with screwdriver) and found on the power board that 2 of the capacitors are blown away. (the top was swollen) so i just go to electricity store and bought 2 new capacitors. (the same as the two i solder out !) I solder them to the board and now it's work like its ...

Given enough time, UV from sunlight can destroy just about anything. Monitors aren't designed to be UV safe, as they're not typically used outdoors, or in direct sunlight. If it's in direct sunlight for a couple of hours every day, it will eventually damage it. I would recommend at the very least covering it with a cloth or something when not in use.

I had the exact same issue and pressing the Ctrl key once seemed to "un-sticky" the key. I also followed the information provided by Juha and found that the Super Utility application was running and had shortcuts created for moving windows among my monitors.

Sound like a heat problem. Some soldering joints on your computers motherboard might be having weak connections. Things that doesn't work until they are heated up usually points to a bad solder joint somewhere. Also it might be the backlight hitting end of life.

I have added a second Nvidia GeForce 6200SE TC PCIe GPU, which automatically disables the on-board graphics. Uhm no. That card will not disable anything.

Yes it can. See the Connect Surface to a TV, monitor, or projector page at Microsoft. There is a table with maximum resolutions that different Surface models can support in different configurations. Note that 4K monitors are typically 3840 x 2160 pixels.

One thing to consider would be your monitor settings: Are they set to the proper input signal? Does your PC use integrated graphics, or does it have a graphics card? (Chances are, if your PC was built out-of-factory, you could have a graphics card, allowing you more than one port to plug a display cable into) If you do have a graphics card installed, that ...

After reading more about these types of symptoms online, I presumed that the graphics card had a problem with higher resolution modes. I ended up buying another GeForce GT 730 and replacing the non-functioning one with it and now I'm back to three working displays. So that was the problem.

A splitter would not be necessary as your video card (STRIX-GTX970-DC2OC-4GD5) supports three monitors natively. They can be connected to up to three of the following ports: DVI, DVI-I (DVI-D), HDMI 2.0, Display Port. As your monitor supports HDMI and VGA, you can connect DVI, DVI and HDMI with simple adapters or adapter cables to the HDMI ports for a ...

Changing the battery doesn't inherently clear the CMOS, unless the power cable had been removed and time had been alloted for discharge between removing and replacing (not specified in question).

I searched for this problem, and although wasn't spot on for me it did give me a clue. In my case I set the 2nd and the 3rd screen (which wasn't working) to duplicate, which worked.

TL;DR: Neither LED or LCD is driven in a "stable" fashion like e-ink so this will not work. That is not how displays work. 0 Hz will not produce anything like what you want. Due to the large number of pixels, and due to the fact that the only practical way to access each point in the 2 dimensional array is via columns and rows selection, in any display ...

1366×768 8-bit pixels is just above 1MiB (by 512 bytes), so it does not fit into an 8Mbit memory chip. 1360 is also divisible with both 8 and 16, enabling simplified and optimized algorithms for processing graphics.

Yes, Windows supports scaling to higher resolutions, but if and only if your moniter, graphics card AND your graphics driver supports the resolution. In some case windows may not detect the resolutions your monitor supports and may provide support for higher resolutions (which will not display correctly) or limit a you to a low resolution (more probable). ...

Short answer: yes. Longer answer, because it's displaying everything through Citrix, the admins may have restricted the graphics options. The full resolution of your monitor may (and probably would be) supported and used, but because of Citrix, it may not look as great as you're expecting.
