Just found a simple fix without uninstalling the utility: In the taskbar notification area, look for the icon and right-click it. You will see OSD with a check next to it; simply uncheck it and you won't be bugged by those notifications again!

As mentioned in Psychogeek's answer, this is an issue with a color profile setting by the operating system. Color profiles can be applied by the application, the operating system, the video card, and the display hardware. For OS color profiles in Windows, when sent to the video card the color profile is applied differently to the cursor than it is to the ...

This answer starts with an analysis of why things are not 1:1 with digital, and ends with possible ways to change things based on your actual question. Shoot a pic with your camera, all the sensor data is processed. Then it is compressed to death. Then it moves 1:1 to your computer. Where it is displayed being adjusted by any OS color profiles. ...

Okay first lets clear one thing. This "Hz" you are talking about is called the Refresh Rate of the monitor. In very simple words it is the number of times per second in which the display draws the data it is being given. Now as the refresh rate is increased the response time of the pixels are reduced. So what is response time? Basically it is the time ...

I am experiencing the same issue - most often a short green bar flickering in the bottom half of the screen. It seems often to be when mail.app open. Is this your experience, or does this happen with other apps as well?

There is no user fix. AOC fixed the monitor free of charge.

Your display is not well configured. I tried the steps, too, and can't display on the external monitor. That's why I tried to reinstall the graphics card (Nvidia 6150), with WDDM variant. After installing, Windows asked me to restart; I restarted and the issue was solved: the display is back.

If it's an old monitor you most likely have a problem with capacitors and inverter that powers it's back-light. On old LCD monitors there are cold cathode fluorescent tubes that provide back-light, unlike new LED type monitors. Try shining a strong light directly on the display and see if you get a glimpse of image. If you do - you have a back-light problem ...

What kind of picture does it show? I think it's fairly normal for some brands to show their logo or some startup image when powered on. My Samsung screen also shows the Samsung logo on power-on.

On Windows 7 and above you can accomplish this with the standard RDP (Remote Desktop Client / mstsc.exe). Here's how: /span for multiple monitors If you pass /span to mstsc.exe, the target session’s desktop will become a huge rectangle that equals to the summary area of your physical monitors. This way the remote desktop window will fill all of ...

Although this doesnt do exactly what you want, you might want to look at Synergy. Synergy lets you use one keyboard and mouse for multiple computers/OSs. It doesn not extend your desktop, but allows you to use a one set of inputs for multiple machines. It might do what you are looking to accomplish.

Try rolling back the display driver to the previous version. Control Panel > Device Manager (opens a window) > Display Adaptors > Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000 (double-click) > Driver (tab) > Roll Back Driver. It worked for me.

You can not use the VGA output connector on your laptop as an input. However what you can do is use a video grabber. This is a device that takes an input (e.g. from VGA) and turns it into digital information (e.g. to record what would normally appear in the screen. Think of it as an 'image microphone'. Then 'play' the captured image in real time on the ...

Not likely possible. Normal VGA is uni-directional, so even if you managed to physically connect the PC's VGA-out to the laptop's VGA-out, it would be the electrical equivalent of driving two cars towards each other -- in a single lane! It may be possible to engineer a bidirectional VGA port that has automatic directional override, but it's either (a) too ...

to assume the laptop and monitor have one of the following connections yes: 1) serial to serial (like the old printer connections) 2) vga to vga/dvi/hdmi or you can somehow convert the presumably vga connection on the laptop to dvi/hdmi

This is a late response but it might help other people. I purchased the same monitor 1 hour ago and had the same issue. You simply need to swap the DVI input port, and then you can change it to 144 Hz.

It appears to be either the screen itself or the connection to the computer. Do the artifacts appear over the built-in monitor menu? If so, it's the screen. Does reseating either end of the video cable help?

Definitely not the hard drive. It could be the screen or the graphics card, but it's more likely the graphics card given that the computer spontaneously rebooted. Easiest way to tell would be to hook up a different screen and see if you get the same results. If you do, then it's the video card. Your only option is to replace it.

I reduced the brightness of my monitor to match the brightness of my white wall in my office and set the text to medium size. Both these things helped me. Did you find anything that worked since this posting? http://www.allaboutvision.com/cvs/irritated.htm

Set the monitor as the primary display, 'Control Panel > Display > Settings > Identify' and move the displays around as you require.

Guys i solved the isssue. As i mentioned in the question i tried connecting a monitor with a higher resolution and it worked.Then changed the overclocking configs in the bios and thats it. It works perfectly now.

Have you tried display fusion? I think the free version can do this. I have the paid version which can do this for sure (and has other awesome features). Below shows a screenshot where I highlighted the tab and the section that would assist with this in red boxes.

Your hardware is pretty old (c. 2008), and it somewhat predates commodity dual monitor support. Q43/Q45 has an Intel GMA X4500 adapter if it's using on-board graphics. You neglected to list the make and model of the computer or motherboard, but as far as I can tell that adapter does support dual monitors in some configurations. It depends on the precise ...

Please check the official intel guide to dual monitors: http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/CS-031040.htm if you meet the requirements, depending on your desired setup, choose either the clone configuration or extended setup configuration. Also note that in some situations, only it's supported DVI-D only, not DVI-I.

Assuming that the playback software itself has no performance issues, then the only difference between the 1:1 scaled version and the 2K/4K versions is that the latter will have to be downscaled to achieve the same presentation size. Depending on the downscaling algorithm of the player, you may see aliasing or softening/blurring effects. The video may also ...

I assume you mean the menu for the monitor itself which is brought up (various ways) by the buttons on said monitor, so the likelyhood is that a button on the monitor is stuck or sticking, either physically or just making an electrical connection somehwere. Pull all the power (from the wall), and see if a full reset would help, when that does not, ...

The simplest solution for you is to just buy one DVI to HDMI adapter (~5$ on amazon) and plug into one video card. As mentioned by Brad, mirroring is an easy thing for a single video card to do but not 2 video cards.

Well I fixed it. It seems it was just a loose connection. After disconnecting and reconnecting the display the backlight started working again.

Alternate solution: custom resolution utility or Intel Graphics drivers custom resolution option.

This is very simple to do on most distributions, you need to change inittab to spawn a script instead of getty on the first tty. Edit /etc/inittab and alter the line that reads: 1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 tty1 to something like 1:2345:respawn:/path/to/your/script

Depends if the video is being decoded in hardware on the GPU, or solely by the CPU. Check your video drivers and hardware support this. Use a monitoring tool (e.g. resource monitor for windows, top for linux) to check where your existing bottlenecks are. Check CPU, RAM, and if your GPU is decoding in hardware. If you are hitting 100% CPU use and the video ...

Blank screen at post sometimes is a memory problem. Try reseating, or boot with one chip to see if that helps. (if you have two chips) I saw this happen and there was a burned/discolored spot on a memory chip.

I see this is old but I'll comment anyway with my input... I have a Dell Optiplex 980 and I was installing 2 new sticks of RAM, 2GB each. I had a problem with the 2nd stick, the monitor won't turn on with the 2nd stick in slot 3 or slot 4. However with the 1st stick in slot 3 it's fine. When I booted up I pressed F12 for startup options and went to ...

This is happening because the switch is physically switching the power to the HDMI output away from the computer, making the PC think you have unplugged the screen. Unfortunately, this is a design feature of the switch you're using and there's not much you can do about it except using that converter you have.

I have the same problem except that when I press the + button, I can control the volume but I can't change the input source like you, when I press the auto button or the "-" button alone there is nothing on the screen, but I managed to get into the menu by pressing simultaneously the "-" button and the menu button (second button and fourth button). Did you ...

For non-natively supported file types the Windows Shell needs shell extension handlers (sort of a plugin) to extend some of the Shell functionality to these file types. Under Windows XP or earlier, the Shell uses the called Column Handler extension to show files metadata in the Windows Explorer details view columns. Since Vista, the Shell uses the more ...

From Microsoft official help document. Adaptive brightness is a feature in Windows that uses a light sensor to automatically adjust the display brightness to match the lighting conditions in your computer's surroundings. To use adaptive brightness, you must have light sensors installed and enabled on your computer. To determine if your laptop or ...

Conclusion is obvious. Your monitor is partially broken. Something inside, could be in the connector itself, its not working properly, causing these issues. If the monitor has other connectors than the DVI one, try connecting to that one and see how it goes, otherwise replace the monitor with a new one.

DisplayPort splitters are actually about the same price as dual-link DVI adapters. I would recommend you invest in the DVI cable and run audio to the screen separately for whichever computer you use it on. Even if you hooked it up with a splitter and managed to get it working (I don't think it would, BTW), you'd have no way to "switch" back and forth ...

As you noted, the 'anti-aliasing' on one of the monitors was because it wasn't being driven at its native resolution. The monitor was scaling the input video. Once both monitors are driven at their native resolution, both appear sharp.

Somehow unplugging and replugging the monitor cable from the DVI-D/VGA adapter with the computer running, then using auto adjust seems to have fixed everything. The adapter is a StarTech DVI2VGAE, I don't know if this solution is specific to the adapter or not.

I used the Javascript timer from Jason C's answer and here are the results: With the PC directly connected to the monitor and the TV, output lag is about 40 ms between the two displays: With the PC directly connected to the monitor, and connected to the TV through a Home Cinema Receiver (Onkyo TX-SR333), the output lag is about 100 ms between the two ...

Your TV will be, at best, 1920x1080 resolution unless you're lucky enough to have a new 4k TV. If your existing monitor is the same resolution [a fair assumption these days for a 19" screen, but you gave no details], then everything will simply be correspondingly bigger. You don't get any 'more space' you just get everything bigger & consequently ...

What you're looking for is called KVM switch, and the range is big. What you need is one of the cheaper ones, which basically lets you connect VGA and/or DVI in addition to some USB devices and sometimes including sound. This shouldn't set you back too much, as it's a fairly basic device. In large environments, it is common for entire KVM systems that costs ...
