Your issue is with Google's webpage and not your system. Maybe a browser extension can make the page appear more aesthetically pleasing. You could lower your monitor resolution. Or as someone else suggested, rotate your display 90 degrees. Holding CTRL button and using the mouse wheel will often adjust the magnification of text. Otherwise, write Google a ...

What you describe here is caused by quality difference between cheap and better panels. Sometimes, you even buy the same laptop twice, and the panel is from different vendors. I guess also ASUS buys them from different companies. All you can do is complain about it. I had a Samsung with a bad screen like yours, and sold it later. I lean back and the eyes ...

It is almost guaranteed to be proprietary. Laptop cables have to carry more than the video signals, and so they do not use shared port/wiring setups (except between similar models from that manufacturer). Other uses of that cable include things like power for the screen and backlight, and possibly other data such as wirless signals (WiFi or WLAN) since ...

The only "work around" I have found for this is to go to "device manager" and uninstall "Intel(R) HD Graphics" driver under Display adapters. This causes the screen to go black, but pushing (not holding) the power button lets the system restart and then the touchscreen works. I had to do this every time but here lately it every once in awhile works without ...

What Dell calls "Premier Color" and HP calls "Dreamcolor" is marketing-speak for 10-bits per channel color. They are also pre-calibrated with a selection of color profiles for professional work in (especially) video and television, also applicable to photography and graphic design, which you can find in their specs. You can use the full capabilities of a ...

Have you tried locking your computer screen (Start+L). If there is a message or a program popup that triggers the screen to wake so it asks for user interaction, it shouldn't do so if the screen is locked.

Screen savers only activate when the keyboard has been idle for a specified period. Rather than the screensaver, why not set Monitor 2 so that it rotates its wallpaper at set intervals?

It's a utility put on by Sager named the "Hot Key Utility". Go get a newer version from them, and hopefully it doesn't cause applications to lose focus. Or just uninstall it from your system to get rid of it completely.

You need a DisplayPort male to mini DisplayPort female adapter. It looks like StarTech makes one.

The monitor will have either an input jack (green surround) for the speakers [old style] or it will be carried over HDMI [new style]. If you're lucky it will still have the old style connector, as I'm very doubtful a 5200 would have HDMI

PROBLEM SOLVED!!! I had exactly the same problem: Acer B276HUL recognized by OSX (Yosemite on 27" iMac Late 2010) but no picture displayed. Boot with Windows (Luckily, I had Bootcamp Enabled with Windows 7). With Windows 7 B276HUL worked without any issue Go to Acer Menu Display Settings/DP/ and select DP 1.1 instead of DP 1.2 Reboot with OSX and problem ...

I am going to go out on a limb here and say that if you have the wherewithal to repair a computer you have the presence of mind to disconnect the keyboard and mouse before turning the computer on one time to see if that makes any difference. Assuming it doesn't, from my experience, that looks like a video card problem. I would suggest you run the aptly ...

For a while you are able to list all DP 1.2 MST capable devices on displayport.org. Just select the DP Displays Multi-Stream option.

For me, I am on Windows 8 and my monitor (connected by DisplayPort) was automatically turning off every time I locked my PC, after a 60 second delay, which produced the issue described in this question. The other suggestions in this Q&A weren't workable for my monitor (Samsung 4K UHD 28” Monitor U28D590D). I was able to successfully work around it by ...

Different sources of input lag add up. The limited refresh rate is but one source of latency, and the LCD's response time only adds to it. As you've pointed out, a typical 60 Hz monitor can take up to 16.667ms to update its contents. However, even after it updates its internal buffer, it still needs to send the display data to the panel, and the panel needs ...

I'd check to see if its the backlight (you can get replacement inverters online) with a flashlight - if you see an image, you basically have it narrowed down there. Otherwise, its bad capasitors. I'd note that bad capacitors are symptomatic of other issues and its going to be a massive timesink fixing these. I have a monitor with a near complete capasitor ...

I wound up downloading MPC-HC, and changing the renderer to VMR9, or any DXVA renderer, in Playback > Options. Then I could play a video and use ctrl+j to see the refresh rate: Ultimately saw that the system was practically non-interactive when using the GPU, and I assume there's something wrong with the old hardware/bootcamp/depreciated OS situation.

The first "solution" that pops up in my head is to setup 4 virtual PC's and let each virtual PC show one broadcast/screen. Note that this solution is very bad scalable. But since you talk about 4, I think that's ok.

Looks like with the latest drivers, the settings are not saved when coming from sleep. But retained for restart. If you updated AMD drivers recently, this could be a bug. Reverting to older driver should help solve your issue.

It might be happening after installing the drivers just install the your monitor drivers from the official site it will solve your problem, And it will also gives you optimal picture quality.

Pretty sure your graphics card is bad. Bulging capacitors are never a good sign. Back then, a lot of hardware components had faulty capacitors which would eventually fail. These capacitors had improper chemistry which caused them to pressurize during operation and ultimately leak caustic electrolyte. This problem was called capacitor plague and it forced a ...

Its your GPU. Its not the exact same issue but its a minor miracle your GPU still works. Basically nearly everything in the 8xxx family was flawed and tended to fail due to issues with the BGA soldering on the video card. These issues could manifest themselves in many different ways - dell put out a recall on laptop GPUs with the same chip family and ...

The refresh rate reported by the monitor itself should be accurate. Also if you're using a VGA connector, you can use an oscilloscope to probe the vsync line to see if the video card is indeed syncing at 100hz. Also pin 8 on a dvi connector carries the analog vsync signal as well. Take a look at this also: ...

In newer versions (I'm in 2.0.0.20141103 on OS X Yosemite), it looks like they moved the setting to Profiles > Terminal > (Default profile) > Terminal. This doesn't switch the foreground and background colors like you're asking for, but it does display a big visual bell in the middle of the terminal. It says I don't have enough reputation to post images, so ...

Quite likely too late to help, but you can try WIN key + P to cycle between Windows monitor configurations. Alternatively, UltraMon at http://www.realtimesoft.com/ultramon/ or the free (open source) alternatives http://dualmonitortool.sourceforge.net/ might be useful. You can also change the scaling level in Windows, up to 200% if you hit "Custom": ...

Your description is slightly unclear. I will assume you mean the TV feels "laggy" while the main monitor does not. This would not be describable as "input" lag since your main monitor feels fine. The mouse does not care where it is on the screen and there would be no change in input response that would be dependent on the location of the pointer. This ...

The sound is coming from the power supply of the monitor. You say it is more audible when in stand-by and in-sync with the power LED. I have an LG monitor which does the same. It's a power supply design issue. Most devices nowadays are using switched mode power supplies which adjust the switching frequency depending on the load (the power needed by your ...

I have the same issue on my system; two monitors connected to Vga and a third connected to DVI. Most times at startup I only get two monitors coming alive. By right clicking on the desktop and selecting 'Screen Resolution' and then clicking on 'Detect' I usually get the third monitor to come alive (may have to click on detect two or three times!). Its not ...

I found a solution for my similar problem. I had the exact same problem but on a very different Mac using very different X applications. Mine is a Mac Pro from 2011, running 4 monitors on two ATI Radeon HF 5770 video cards. Every X program that I tried had the same problem as you describe. I did the upgrade to Yosemite on my macbook, but the version of ...

It's telling you it failed while trying to "Load Option ROM (VGA and RAID option ROM) from BIOS to memory". It's not telling you to load anything. :) Things to try: Update your motherboard's firmware (BIOS/UEFI) to the latest available. Ensure your power supply can supply enough power for the system with the new video card (ATI recommends at least a 400W ...

No, there is no way of doing that on Windows 7 -- display scaling method is global for all monitors. However, Windows 8 does exactly what you want -- you can choose different scaling methods separately for different monitors. It also has a tool to scale different parts of interface independently (e.g. making only the text bigger but not the icons, etc.). ...

In my opinion u can use the AMD R9 M295X but this is the same one which is already implemented in 5k display in the new iMac.

not as far as I know, it's global. Alternative would be to change the resolution on the laptop screen.

I had the same problem after upgrading to Windows 8. The easiest solution I have found is to use the Watch4Idle freeware taskbar app that was recommended by Lifehacker. Its "screen off" timer works, even though Windows' own screen off timer does not. If Watch4Idle's screen off command does not work you can consider using the nircmd tool to trigger the ...

The only difference between modern TVs and monitors is the viewing distance they are designed for. Monitors have a higher pixels per inch density so test looks nice when you are sitting two feet away, TVs have larger surface area for viewing at long distances. If you are going to be presenting small details on the screen and you expect people to lean up ...

On a Google forum I found a message in French which explained that corrupted HELVETICA fonts were still on my PC, even if I couldn't see them or find them in my list of fonts. He gave me a link to reinstall UNCORRUPTED Helvetica fonts. I downloaded the zip file, extracted the fonts, and inserted them into my list of fonts. Them I emptied my Chrome browser ...

I'm guessing there is something wrong with the font. Try using a different font. Open the following location C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\User StyleSheets Find the Custom.css Right click, open with notepad or wordpad or notepad++ or similar. Add 2 lines of code, and then save: @font-face { font-family: ...

A recent question was marked as a duplicate of this one because it asked essentially the same question. It stated the reason for the question being that the information here, and elsewhere, is old ("Has the science changed?"), and wondered about whether the underlying research is current. Even in this question, the applicability of the research is ...
