You would need to check the capabilities of your laptop graphics card to see if it can display your laptop screen and both the external VGA and HDMI simultaneously to duplicate or extend your desktop. I have a funny feeling that you will only be able to use, at most, any 2 displays/outputs - not the 3 you desire. I.e. laptop LCD + VGA (no HDMI) OR laptop ...

Make sure when you visit your optometrist/optician you mention this to them. You may be slightly shortsighted in which case viewing text etc might be improved with some specs.

It depends on how good your eyes are for one thing. Assuming you have great eyesight, you may want to refer to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Optimum_HDTV_viewing_distance which contains some useful charts. Personally I'd say from experience in trying to do something similar that it should be around 60-70 inches. Your premise however is not entirely ...

In general, beep codes are used in situations where video is not yet available or is unusable by the system at the point in time when a critical problem must (because the boot process cannot continue) be reported. In practice, there are a few cases where perhaps it would be possible to initialize video and display an error message, but it is still easier to ...

Here are some steps to help troubleshoot this kind of issues: Test your monitor with another computer. If the monitor works as expected it's then a problem with your video output. Try installing the latest drivers on your computer or even update your BIOS (if applicable). If that doesn't work, your video output may be physically damaged. If you don't have ...

My father in law had almost the same problem and it turned out to be a faulty monitor. His monitor would occasionally wake up if we re-seated the DVI cable. The fact that the same thing happened when I switched him over to display port/VGA with persisting symptoms led me to believe it was either a problem with his graphics card or monitor (likely monitor). ...

I have extremely sensitive eyes, hence I developed DimScreen.

VGA is compatible with DVI. That was part of the design of DVI, after all. You should avoid using the VGA port if at all possible because it's analog and lossy. You'll likely notice ghosting and other artifacts. HDMI may be compatible with DVI, depending on your hardware. For example, AMD graphics cards ship with DVI-to-HDMI adapters. This only works ...

Yes, you can use any adapter cable between HDMI to DVI. Then you use a cable to connect the display to the adapter cable. To connect a DVI monitor to a VGA port on a laptop you will need a VGA-DVI converter. For more information about how to connect a DVI monitor to a VGA port on a laptop look at this question: How can I connect a DVI monitor to the VGA ...

Your LCD needs to support DVI-A, DVI-I Single Link, or DVI-I Dual Link. Your monitor only supports analog. Your DVI to VGA adapter by hardware specs is analog only. The only unknown is your monitor and whether it supports an analog mode. DVI was introduced in 1999. It doesn't sound like your LCD is that old, so it might not have DVI-A. You will likely need ...

This question is really old now, but in case you're still having this problem - I was getting BSOD errors on my HP 2730p very frequently whenever it was not docked.

Most modern monitors should still cope with much lower resolutions even if they have to do some horrible looking interpolation. I would double check that your VGA to DVI cable supports analogue signals. It's possible your cable only supports a digital connection and your rather ancient VGA card is only producing an analogue one..

If you have a VGA port on your monitor, it should work. However, the video card cannot run the monitor at its native resolution (23-inch monitors are generally 1920×1080). 1990s video cards like the 3D Rage Pro simply were not designed to handle resolutions anywhere near full HD, and the notion of "high definition" simply wasn't mainstream back then. ...

FYI, I had tried the pin 19 trick but it presented more issues because the computer's video card can't detect the connected monitor if this pin was blocked. It must be due to the on-board video card that I use. After some research, I bit the bullet and bought an adapter called "Monitor Detect Killer device". No more issues when shutting off the monitors ...

Yes, it is certainly possible. All you need is an Active adapter like Accell B086B-007B. As of mid-2014, it seems like there are a lot of 15 USD adapters that are advertised to support Ultra HD resolutions, but which do not appear to be as active as the active 25 USD ones by Accell, and none of those other adapters seem to be able to support Ultra HD on ...

HDMI is generally designed to work with standard TV resolution : 720×480, 720×576, 1280×720, 1920×1080. VGA (640×480) should also be supported everywhere. Even though there should not be any problem with using other resolutions, your VGA-HDMI (which is an active digital to analog converted, therefore it has his own chipset and firmware with hardcoded values) ...

I had the same problem with a LG W2261 monitor. It was a hardware problem.

Look for: did the indicator LED changed its state from ...

I have seen this on 2 different models of laptop. (A Sony Vaio around 2005 and a Toshiba Sattelite around 2008). I have also observed white, red and blue flashes on various other laptops and desktops.

You are going to need a HDMI-to-VGA converter for your HDMI output. You can then have both monitors connected and work as cloned or extended desktops.

The location of where your cursor can travel to another screen closely approximates the picture shown in your screen resolution dialog.

Consider the screenshot below: ...

keep both the monitors on same resolution for getting the results you desire. When you extend the display and both the monitors are on same resolution, the cursor travels at the same height. If the resolutions differ, then you face the issue that you are facing.

There is no penalty to convert from DVI on your video card to HDMI on your monitor; The DVI ports on your graphics card simultaneously output a DVI-D, DVI-A, HDMI, and VGA signal over each DVI port. The DVI -> HDMI and DVI -> VGA "adapters" you find are really just selecting which signal to use. Note, this is true only for the DVI ports you find on ...

If you want to display your documents at real size, you'll need a monitor with a width of more than 42-43 cm (for A4 and Letter pages). I have a 21.5 inches 1920x1080 monitor with a width of 48 cm and it is good for this. The height of 27 cm is however not enough for the 29.7 cm of A4. keeping the text big enough to be read from about 60cm That ...

If you don't care about security, it's not too hard: First, X needs to be running without the -nolisten tcp option that most display managers add by default. How you change that can vary by display manager and distro. User one can then open a terminal and run xhost +host2. That allows all users on host2 to open windows on user one's display. User two on ...

Yes, it could be a kind of liquid damage. Imagine some little drops of liquid are still there or they dried, vaporized just water from them, but left shorting (new current leading tracks). If the affected pins are data signals, it could make some bits in the video data flow to constant 0 or 1, to a pattern view, sort of, XXX1XXXX, or XXXXX0XX, or any other, ...

There's little chance of this ever being seen but I'll post it anyway. I'm not sure if this applies to all Samsung monitors, but, on my SyncMaster BX2031, I found that if I go to the monitor's built in menu, go to "Setup & Reset" and set "Magic Return" to "off", I don't have the issue. I think this is Samsung's attempt at saving on system performance by ...

Yes, this is because of damage to the display. Either an internal crack, a separation of layers, or perhaps the frame was bent or cracked causing pressure on the display panel (same effect as when you press on the screen with your finger).
