Short answer: No, it's not possible to have one monitor use integrated and the other monitor to use discrete on a laptop setup. Longer answer: Your best bet is to put both monitors on the GeForce card. You can configure your laptop to only use the GeForce card all the time, but it will use more power (and hence, drain the battery faster when on battery) in ...

Did you try just switching to a different "console", with CTRL+ALT+F1 through F8? Those usually switch screen size/graphics modes and could throw a "reset" like command to the monitor. Sometimes CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE is set to kill or restart the window manager too, it may cause a "reset" also. PS. Doing a pull-the-plug power off is terrible for most ...

Are you using BatteryBoost? NVIDIA BatteryBoost extends battery life by limiting the maximum frame rate. This reduces the load on the GPU and therefore power consumption. You should be able to adjust or disable this feature in GeForce Experience.

I've seen this before on external monitors, but never on a laptop panel. Basically your green color channel has become disconnected somehow. With an external monitor connected via an analog VGA cable, you can reproduce this effect by pulling one side of the connector out slightly so it's crooked. If the internal panel is connected with VGA, that would ...

What would be the downsides of doing so apart from the decreased RAM available to system? Aside from the RAM as you have already said, there would be no downsides, given the age of the video card you currently have. Is there a way to combine the graphics processing power of both the GPUs and output it through the NVIDIA card? No, there isn't. The ...

Not sure if this is a laptop or a desktop, but if it's a desktop then check if you have other ports to connect your monitor to to confirm it's not the monitor. Hooking up the monitor to another computer works too. You can also try re-installing the drivers and see if the green pixels return or not. Something else you could try to help debug this is to load ...

I use a piece of software called DisplayFusion to manage multiple monitor profiles. It can save and restore preset configurations, including spanning and even virtual sub-monitor splits. It also has window management features that I find very useful. I am in no way affiliated with the publisher, Binary Fortress, other than being a customer.

I can see where you're coming from - why spend good money just to see if something works. Unfortunately, the only way to test if your graphics cards work (and, not only that, but if they work reliably under stress and over time) is to install them into a properly configured, compatible PC. That includes using a compatible and compliant power supply. If you ...

The 770 GTX has a TDP of around 230 Watts which means it pulls around 19 A on a +12 V rail. If you have two 770 GTXs then you need more then 38 A in a SLI configuration on the +12 V rail. Your Sharkoon WPM (700W) while it does provide, 54 A on the 12 V rail, that likely isn't enough if you consider the other components. What you want is a PSU which has ...

Probably not. No matter how large your card is it should entirely be supported by the screws at the PCIe slot openings at the rear and the PCI slot itself. There's nothing to screw a standoff to at all to anything in a standard case and these would not be used at all. and it might actually be potentially damaging to the card, placing lateral stresses ...

The 8-pin PCIe power connectors can handle higher power demands than the 6-pin. The two additional pins in the 8-pin are simply 2 more ground wires. The video adapter needs 2x 6-pin to run, but can accept an 8-pin plug as well (for compatibility sake). So, from the video card's point of view, it doesn't matter if you use a 6-pin or an 8-pin PCIe from the ...

Issue resolved. The problem was with the charger, it was not giving the rated output. Learning If drivers and a hard reset do not fix the problem, temperatures are normal, clock speed is not limited but utilization is less, power supply could be a problem.

I wonder if there is anyway I can make this system boot. Easy. Turn on power. Done. The system should start, run its firmware (probably BIOS given the age of the system) and try to load the bootloader from whichever target is configured in the BIOS. Now, without graphics this is where it get tricky. Most BIOS implementations on consumer motherboards ...

Try downgrading the driver from version: 364.72 - while somewhat alarmist - this article suggests that that specific release is buggy. I believe I had 361 earlier and it was fine. I'm personally not having issues with 364 either, but my guess would be the previous version should be fine for now.

Thanks for advise. It was ASUS Xonar Audio Center :))) I have turned off it and removed from autoload and circle was gone. I use ASUS Xonar DX audio card. This is strange but it seems that asus do "great" software for their audio cards :)))
