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 ...

Try this: Go to Control Panel> Power Options. Edit the plan you use by clicking Change Plan Settings. Once here click Change Advanced Power Settings. Once there, go to USB Settings, open the menu by clicking the +, and open the next menu named USB Selective Suspend Setting. Disable it. Once this is disabled, Windows 7 will no longer adjust your ...

The graphics depends on your Graphics Card as is it HD or not. Even if you scale, buy or do something else the graphics wont be better, Check your graphics card is it HD or If not i would recommend to get a HD card if you want HD Graphics. To check your Graphics Card Search dxdiag.exe in Start menu --> Open it --> Display There you will find info about your ...

Buying a higher res screen doesn't make the images a higher resolution! They are blurry because you are scaling them up. I suspect that 200% will be better if that doesn't make things too big. What you are finding is a fundamental issue of having a monitor with an inappropriate resolution:physical size ratio. Some app UIs will be vector based and scale ...

The metal case around a hard drive is effectively one big metal Faraday cage. An alternating Magnetic field couldn't effectively penetrate it whether it's diamagnetic, paramagnetic or a ferromagnetic metal due to the induction of eddy currents in the metal itself absorbing the external magnetic field. The bigger the AC current the warmer the case gets. Or ...

The pixel aspect ratio (PAR) of this computer monitor, and all LCD monitors, is 1:1 or square. For NTSC, the PAR is 10:11 or roughly 0.9. These are known as rectangular pixels.

Of the 100's of broken LCD screens I have seen, handled and repaired myself, no fluid was ever found outside of the panel itself. So it is very unlikely the fluid the repair shop found was related to the broken screen. Did they say where the fluid evidence they found was? Was it in the lower body of the laptop? If so, it is even more unlikely since the ...

Another option is the Nirsoft Multi Monitor tool: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/multi_monitor_tool.html You could create two batch files - one to disable display X, the other to enable.

could be lots of things 1.bad power supply 2.bad battery 3. bad switch 4. Loose connection If you can access another power supply: try it.

After the water spill, I'd immediately turn off the monitor and give it a sufficient time to dry. Continuing to use the thing with water present in the electronics will no doubt be problematic for the monitor and could be permanent.

Ok, and now for the serious answer ;-) (I discovered this seconds after I had poster my original answer. But I'm still keeping the old answer, just for fun.) I think you could use this: https://powerline.readthedocs.org/en/latest/usage/shell-prompts.html#bash-prompt. Disclaimer: I haven't tested it!

Cool question. To my knowledge, this can't be done with Bash alone, as David Postill said. But as he suggested, you could (ab)use the prompt for this purpose. Here's an example using ANSI escape sequences to achieve the effect of a status bar :-) PS1='\[\e[s\e[1;1H\e[41;1m\e[K\e[33;1m\][ *** \t *** ]\[\e[0m\e[u\]\w> ' This one just displays the current ...

Magnetic platters need far larger field strengths than an external degaussing coil produces. As a result, hard drives that are switched off are not likely to be affected from degaussing. Operating hard drives are an entirely different piece of cake since the writing (and reading) heads pick up and focus external fields. As a result, you can damage ...

This is one of those old legends that never dies. If we travel far back into the mists of technological time (say, mid 1960s) we used tape. And we had these tape erasing machines that also did a good job straightening out the early colour TVs (I'm embellishing a lot here). Recording media back then was a LOT more sensitive to magnetic disturbance so it ...

Icons are created in different sizes (X pixels x Y pixels, although pixels around the periphery of the image are usually transparent so it looks like a shape other than a rectangle). The sharpest icons will come from selecting a large icon size and viewing it unchanged (set the desktop to use large icons or substitute third party icons that are bigger). ...

It takes a tremendous field gradient to flip the magnetic domains on a hard drive. The hard drive can do it because the heads are so close to the surface and the gaps are so small. The magnets inside the drive's spindle motor and arm actuator produce a stronger field than will the external coil... but because of the motor designs, they don't put a high field ...

If CRT degaussing was a true risk to magnetic media—potentially exposing a system to data loss—then the original Macintosh would be a data loss disaster waiting to happen: Here is a pic of a clear cased Macintosh SE where you can see where the drives—including floppy disks—are located in relation to the CRT: Ditto with the Lisa: As well as the ...

CRT monitors were commonly placed on top of desktop systems, with the lower parts of the tube just inches away from the hard disk. This has been done for a long time, and was common practice at least from the early 1980s right up through the early 2000s, and quite possibly longer. It became less common as tower PCs as well as TFT monitors became more common. ...

With a strong enough degausser placed close enough to a hard drive, you can destroy the drive, but even with a very well aimed and strong one you have to be right on top of it. The coil on the CRT is wide, somewhat directed to the purpose it has, and on many computer monitors that whole area is shielded so not much gets out in any specific direction. You ...

screen has its own scroll buffer, independent of the terminal program; useful when more than one window is used. While I doubt this is the only way to access the buffer, it's one way to effectively scroll back: ^A [ -- starts 'copy' mode, allowing cursor keys, pg up/dn/home/end to scroll back ^V -- aborts 'copy' mode, returns to normal screen ...

See using the scrollwheel in gnu screen: Basically you need something like this in your .screenrc: termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@ or set TERM=vt100 before running screen.

It sounds like you want to have two external displays connected to your MacBook Pro which only supports one external display. The only way around this is to install a USB video adapter such as this one. These adapters are relatively expensive and have poor performance, but it is your only option.

There might be a fancier way to do this but here is one solution. The example in the picture is more generalized than the description so I'll base the solution on that.

The best answer is... sometimes. I've done this with Dell Latitude D-series.

As far as I know, the HDMI standard insists there must be some picture, even if it's just black screen. If that would be OK, then maybe some type of HDMI breakout box to separate the audio - something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Av-Tool-HDMI-AUDIO-BREAKOUT/dp/B00BBE77H8 I've never tested it, so I've no idea how it would work.

You can't set it lower because the minimum required resolution for Windows 8.1 is 1024x768. The minimum native resolution/color depth is 1024x768 at a depth of 32bits.

Right click desktop. Click personalize. Click control panel home on the left of the window that pops open. Click display. Click change display settings on the left of the window that pops open. Where the orientation setting is, change the landscape option to any other option, depending on which way that you want your screen to be.

The signals from the graphic card are the same regardless of what kind of screen you have. The light coming from the LCD's backlight, and thence through the LCD, will be the same. (Or, if you have a "pure LED" screen, the light coming from the LEDs will be the same.) The "anti-glare"/matte screen is the same as the glossy screen, except that a matte ...
