I have got the same problem when I use an HDMI cable. But when I use a DVI cable instead it works fine. I think it might have to do something with the handshake process of HDMI between the monitor and my PC. If the monitor is not turned on first the PC wont find any device to do the handshake with.

I have found two ways to fix the problem, neither of which is ideal. 1) Restart the computer. 2) Change the resolution to another setting, then change it back.

My experience is that this could be caused by a few different things. 1: As the comments have mentioned, swapping out cables is the easiest step and could defintely fix the issue. If you don't have extra cables, try just swapping which monitors use which cables, does the problem persist? 2: Interference from some other source could be causing the signal ...

Is this a really old monitor? I've seen this happen on a really old, second hand LCD display - its due to the layers of the LCD seperating - looks almost like there's a fern-like dendrite formation between layers. Its not fixable in my experience. Since its actual physical damage, it probably would be visible when the monior is off, if you shine a light at ...

I have a friend with lines that look exactly like this, except orange on his laptop. I believe it was a result of it being stepped on or dropped. In this case, the only way to fix it would be to get the screen replaced.

The problem is the HD6450 already came with a dedicated VGA port therefore you cannot convert the DVI to the second VGA monitor since the architecture of the PCB board will not allow to do so. You can either use VGA and HDMI or DVI and HDMI not VGA and DVI period. source

I have the same problem. What I found is that, inside the monitor -in the circuit board -you'll be able to see some capacitors, Take a tester and place it over the metal part of the capacitors this will Tell you whether they're good or damaged And next thing try it over one of the resistors having multiple color code if you observe it You see that the ...

Use TFT monitor f.lux or redshiftgui glare glass

You can try f.lux. While it does not reduce the brightness, it extremely reduces the screen glare caused by the "blue light" of monitors by adding an orange tint to the screen. It's a great piece of software. Hope this helps!

A bigger monitor will certainly give you better options. You can e.g. increase the DPI to 150% (even try 200%). The settings are in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display. Another option to consider is a high contrast theme. That works well with the internet explorer in Windows 8.1 and somewhat in Windows 10. I have made a little settings ...

What matters is the relative size of the pixels of course. The monitor you've listed has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080, the same as your 22" That means that each pixel will be visibly larger if you keep the monitor at the same distance and therefore, the image will be slightly larger too. The downside being that you may find the edge-to-edge viewing ...

You didn't state the model of your laptop, or what graphics adapter it has, but earlier versions of HDMI (previous to HDMI 1.3) can't support anything above 1920x1200. Even if the graphics adapter supports higher, the HDMI port will limit it.

I was looking for the same solution and suddenly reminded about minitube which does the job perfectly. Just enter unique video id or use the searcher.

I think you need to fix the arrangement so the big screen is not the main screen. System prefrances->dispays->arrangement and there you should be able to fix the problem

I also had this problem with Solaris 10 and found that the listener was not set up. svccfg –s /application/x11/x11-server listprop options/tcp_listen svccfg –s /application/x11/x11-server setprop options/tcp_listen = true

As per description, this adapter is only good for up to 1920x1200 (presumably at 60 Hz). It’s limited to Single-Link DVI (SL-DVI in the product name). Your monitor has 2560x1400 at up to 144 Hz. And then, there’s also the direction. It converts DisplayPort to DVI. Not the other way. Simply put: Won’t work with this adapter, ever. Your GPU however, does ...

Check your BIOS settings. Some BIOS's will dim the screen when not plugged in.

Try choosing a lower resolution to see if more scaling options become available. The full set of options for scaling could be hidden if the resolution setting matches that of the display's native one, as their effects may not be meaningful in that context.

Stumbled on the solution today: redshift interferes. It updates the screen color every few seconds, resetting the inversion each time. Luckily now that inverting works I don't need it!

First download and unzip the Dell monitor driver to your local system if you haven't already. Note the directory because you will have to reference it later. Default should be C:\Dell\Drivers\R151591. Click Windows Start, right-click on "Computer" and then select "Properties". Click the "Device Manager" link. Expand the "Monitors" list, right-click on the ...

An Acer V233HL has native resolution of 1920 x 1080 which is 16:9, not 16:10. Even if you were able to modify the firmware, it still wouldn't turn it into a 16:10 monitor due to physical limitations in TN panels.

You could modify the EDID, but most likely it must be hardware-compatible, meaning the aspect ratio will have to be respected. The EDID contains the name and specifications of the monitor's technical data including it's capabilities (res, refresh). The EDID can be re-written using special software. Theres a python script called edid-rw that can be found ...

In Windows Vista Home Basic 32bit, the easiest solution is just to go to Control Panel, and in the menu that the option to change the resolution is for you. Then, you need to go to More display modes of something simiral, search the tabs and find the option:Display all modes. When you press that button, a message will pop up saying that it will now show all ...

"Go to advanced system settings then go to advanced tab, then performance settings. Enable use visual styles on windows and buttons(should be very last box)." Once Resource Monitor has started OK using this method, you can revert and it continues working OK.

Having hit a dead-end trying to establish compatibility... I bought a Samsung S27D850T 27" WQHD monitor... and connected it over HDMI to the Dell 7537 over HDMI. It displays 2560x1440 @60Hz without problems - even when extending the 1080p internal display.

You could try creating a PowerPoint to do this. Make a single empty slide that's just black. Then go to 'SLIDE SHOW' and then 'Set up slide show'. Set it to run on the monitor you choose. Make two PowerPoints, then use a batch file to run both at the same time. Don't forget to save the PowerPoints as PowerPoint Shows, so that they run immediately. If ...

Depending on how often if flickers, you can leave your PC at the BIOS set up screen and don't boot your operating system and see if it ever flickers. Or you could boot it with a free "Live" version of Linux from a CD, DVD, or USB drive and see if the problem goes away running a different operating system. If it never flickers, except when booted into your ...

This is most commonly due to bad or out of date drivers for your graphics card. For a quick, and no-cost fix check this first before assuming it is a hardware problem. Hardware wise this is often the sign of a bad monitor. Have you tried a different monitor? Different cables? Different power strip? Hard disk failure seems unlikely for the symptoms. ...

Basically, there's a ROM (read only memory) chip on the motherboard that tells it how to display whatever GUI it needs to. You think of it as having no software, but it does, it comes preinstalled from the manufacturer. Actually, you'd more likely call this "firmware" since it's software that's hard wired to the chip. As for graphical desktop environments, ...

The volume on the monitor controls the level of output for the speakers within the monitor. The volume keys on a Mac keyboard control the volume of the sound the Mac outputs, so they are separate. If you're connecting to the monitor from a Mac that has an HDMI port, the volume keys should ultimately alter the volume you hear coming out of the monitor, but ...

After hours of searching, trial and error test and reading, I decided to man up and update BIOS. So I fixed a usb to boot windows 98 and got a flash utility thingy. After BIOS update everything seems to work fine. If you have the same motherboard and you want to update bios translate this page and follow the instructions.

I asked Samsung's customer support, and they replied this is by design: the monitor is supposed to be turned on or off manually and has no power saving mode when connected via HDMI.

According to the official tech specs, the Dell Latitude E6420 uses the Intel® HD Graphics 3000 and the Dell Latitude E6430s uses Intel® HD Graphics 3000 for Intel Core i3 Processors and the Intel® HD Graphics 4000 for Intel Core i3/i5/i7 3xxxM Processors. So I assume that if the behavior is not the same as the Dell Latitude E6420, you are using a Dell ...

It sounds like your problem is with your video driver. I would suggest uninstalling the updated version that you installed and downloading the driver from your laptop manufacturer's website. When it comes to OEM systems, the latest and greatest drivers are sometimes more hassle than anything else. In our environment we support just shy of 1,000 laptops and ...

This could be the backlight rather than the screen itself. Take a flashlight and shine on the screen and see if you can see anything. It will be somewhat difficult to see depending on the screen but you should be able to tell

There are differences in the way windows shuts down opposed to restarts. This is probably why you are only getting the black screen during restart. Difference between shutting down and turning on vs. restart in Windows 8? When you say the screen turns off, is it off or just black? Are you able to pull up the task manager (ctrl+alt+del)?

It seems to me that your problem is caused by a failing screen cable. This kind of failures manifests itself by flickering lines or distorted colors that initially go away after moving the lid, but then get worse and worse until becoming permanent. Such cables are easily available and a bit cheaper than screens (which in your case is probably fine). ...

If it went away when you moved the screen back and forth, that points to some sort of physical problem in the connection between the keyboard and the screen.

the monitor has a "detect video" feature in the menu. Turn this off.
