I went in to the device manager and found that the monitor was listed under ports as unknown device but not under monitors. I right clicked on the device and clicked on update driver and selected automatically update. Then the monitor was listed under monitors as pnp monitor. This solved the issue. Hope it helps.

adam3141's answer is great! I still don't have enough reputation to up-vote it but it's definitly the best answer for this problem I've been looking for days! The solution works both if a monitor is connected or not, and in both cases you can remote connect with x11vnc. It also allows to connect a monitor AFTER the X server has been started if needed. By ...

There is a bug in Microsoft Excel that sometimes leaves a window displayed off screen where you cannot reach the top of the window to move it back into view. This can often be fixed by going to the "View" menu in Excel, click on "Arrange All" then switch the way that the windows are arranged. If it is in "Tiled" try "Horizontal" or switch it to a different ...

You can use Xnest which supports up to 3 screens. Just run Xnest -scrns 3 :1 and you get 3 windows each of which appears to an X11 client like a real screen on the one display. -scrns int This option specifies the number of screens to create in the nested server. For each screen, Xnest will create a separate top-level window. Each ...

Since the laptop uses Windows 7, it was possible to use PowerStrip - an old shareware piece of software that has a gamma correction option. I am sure there are plenty of free alternatives. I set brightness to 70% and contrast to -50%. The interface presented was similar to what I had seen in PhotoShop (curves interface in image adjustments). Below is a ...

It is either the light or the power source. Because it comes on then goes off, I am going to bet it is the light (CFL) itself. If u observe bad fluorescent bulbs u can see the similarity.

small flickering problem at the bottom of the screen This is a sign of a failing backlight or backlight power supply.

The stick itself is a HDMI stick and you should be able to connect it to a monitor. There really isn't any point in getting an external video card for it. it defeats the whole purpose of it being a computer stick. If you want to connect more monitors to it however, You might be able to. You can get a USB Universal Dock and extend your desktops but that also ...

The monitor and video card have their own brightness settings, independent of one another. I know this may sound obvious, but have you tried: Fn + brightness buttons for monitor brightness? Windows Key + x to change video card brightness it via the Mobility Centre? AMD Catylist Control Center (if available for your video card since it's AMD)?

It doesn't sound windows specific. Reading through the above solutions others gave the only other thing I could think of is that there MIGHT be a setting in your BIOS settings. Also, if you have any specific software for settings that only exist for that machine. Sometimes if Dell or ASUS puts out hardware that is very specific to that machine software ...

Sounds like your video card isn't getting enough signal in order to render the screen. I would try a lower resolution to see if that helps. You also should make sure you are on 60Hz. Sometimes when adding a monitor my computer would go to 59Hz instead. This might affect the screen rendering. Try plugging in a different monitor to it. Something else to ...

I am using dual monitors but I kept only that 1920x1080 one to make the tests. I resolved the issue adding HorizSync and VertRefresh values in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync HorizSync 30.0 - 83.0 ...

I was facing with similar trouble with my Flex 3-1480. I had lenovo tech support remote into my laptop and update the display driver manually. However, this didn't worked. I read on other forums about updating the BIOS and I exactly did that and voila it worked!! No issues on waking up from sleep! But I guess Windows update somehow changes the BIOS settings ...

I was also having the same problem and discovered it is an issue with the scaling. If you click on properties on the excel shortcut and check the disable scaling for high DPI displays, the boxes disappear. The GUI elements won't be the right size, but at least it's more usable.

I have a u2713hm and had the same problem. I am using a DVI-D cable but it was a cheap one so have ordered something more premium, i'll try that when it arrives. In the meantime I managed to get a decent picture by going into the Nvidia control panel > change resolution > customise and dropped the refresh rate 1Hz at a time and testing the new setting. ...

Install the correct drivers for the monitors. It seems to be commonly overlooked that monitors often have drivers. 99.9% of the time monitors work fine with the "Generic PnP Monitor" that Windows provides and uses by default, but sometimes under specific circumstances it might not quite work perfectly. It seems to be most common with monitors that have ...

Yes you can. You can use a most generic DP to DP cable to connect to one of the DisplayPorts 2, or a DP to mini-DP cable to Mini DisplayPort port(s) 1, or even a passive DP to HDMI cable to one of the HDMI ports 2 (since HDMI 1.3 supports up to 2560x1600@60Hz, which is the optimal mode of Dell U2715H). EDIT: FWIW, one of the DisplayPorts 2 of U2715H is ...

The one thing that is very apparent is that this is a hardware issue, not software related at all. The two most likely possibilities are: The connection between the display and the graphics adapter is damaged or loose. You will need to take the laptop apart to check the connection, and possibly to replace the cable if it seems broken. The graphics ...

The answer is there is NO ADVANTAGE to 10-bit, in all practicality. Will a 10-bit color image in a magazine, brochure, etc. make it less a waste of paper in the long run, will a photo spread in Playboy convince you that the model is really there with you, will the web look more realistic for the moment that it is interesting and less a waste of time, will ...

I found that the device manufacturer website hasn`t released the Windows 10 compatible drivers for your model machine. We may need to revert back to previous version to make the device work well. http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/product-support/product/inspiron-15-intel-n5050/drivers

I found this on another site. Credit to Tom Urtis, Microsoft MVP - Excel. Maybe Watch Window will help? Select your table, then hit Alt+T+U+W and add that selection to watch. It will float and be visible even if you select other sheets, and you can double-click its window pane to go directly to that sheet and range from anywhere in the workbook.

Since your Samsung monitor has no HDMI or DVI port, it will be very difficult to connect your set-top box to your monitor. There are HDMI to VGA converters but most likely won't work due to HDCP protection.


0

You should be able to get an HDMI to VGA converter - this will allow you to take the video signal from your set top box to your monitor. However, VGA does not carry an audio signal - If your monitor only has a VGA port and no audio port then you will not be able to have audio via the VGA cable. Unless you can plug speakers into your set top box you will ...

As I can see on your photo, the resolution seems to be correct. You have to realign the picture on the monitor device. Often called "adjust" See the manual on how to do this. (It says Button 2 is a shortcut for auto adjust)

After some additional information from the OP, it seems that the problem was that he had two monitors connected to the internal graphic card and one to the additional GTX. As he changed the connection to have two monitors connected to the additional GTX and only one to the internal graphic card - the problem disappeared. My assumption is (an only an ...

It sounds like a problem with your monitor. If it is showing up when it is only showing the ASUS logo then it isn't anything to do with you computer it's self. The best answer I can give you is replace it

I know this is a bit late and it turned out to be a hardware issue at the end, but nevertheless I wanted to share my experiences with NH532 because the title of the question is somewhat related: I used to have the "black screen issue" with NH532 after booting up on Windows 8.1. It would only project to the external display, but the laptop screen would ...

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 ...
