USB-VGA is going to be much more unreliable in any situation since it requires a special adapter. USB traditionally isn't even used for Video and is strictly a Data connection. I'd stick with HDMI-VGA. Even then, make sure you are aware that VGA will not carry audio and you will not have sound. You will need a separate 1/8" Phono cable (AUX cable) to carry ...

According to the intel spec (and applies to VGA too) DVI: 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz That's the max on the shared link. If you divide that by 3 you get 640 max width per panel. Then at 4:3 that gives 480 on the vertical. You won't be able to go any higher on an analogue interface, the DP version is what you need. Update: Utilizing your DP port instead of the ...

Yeah I believe that is a scam. Although I'm not sure about your question. If you are trying to use HDMI OUTPUT to VGA INPUT (new pc to old monitor) then this is what you need: http://www.amazon.com/Fullink-Female-Audio-Converter-Adapter/dp/B00JK09P52/ref=sr_1_15?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1455067495&sr=1-15&keywords=hdmi+to+vga If your trying ...

Looking at the device description, it appears that you can use it to switch between multiple video sources, using a single display device. So for example, if you have an XBox and a DVD player, you can switch between the two using your television. The device does not appear to support what you are asking for, which is to use a single source (e.g. XBOX) and ...

It sounds like your PC is only "seeing" and listening to the HDMI connection, and the VGA output just happens to work also as a mirror or duplicate output. When the tv turns off, the PC sees this and turns off it's video output, apparently not "seeing" that the VGA is still plugged in. I'm guessing that it's a hardware issue, when I read the manual for my ...

DisplayPort is compatible through all of these connections via different adapters: DisplayPort to VGA DisplayPort can be adapted to VGA with an active adapter, as it does not output an analog signal as standard. Note that most of these do not require additional power, and receive sufficient power to function from the DisplayPort itself. DisplayPort to ...

Separate monitor is separate monitor, extended displays are quite common and most APU / GPU manufacturers allow different resolutions on different screens. I have a GTX 660 in my tower and simply opening up the NVIDIA Control Panel (right click, should be there if you've installed drivers) reveals an option "Change Resolution" under "Display", that allows ...

Having looked into this a bit more, it seems that your graphics card should be able to run that display at full resolution over HDMI. According to the HDMI version comparison at Wikipedia HDMI 1.3 would allow 2560x1600 and your graphics card supports HDMI 1.4, so it should actually work. HDMI version: 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 ...

If you have access to a working Windows 7 computer, you could create an unattended installation, and even include programs and drivers. Drivers are not required if Windows 7 supports your hardware out-of-the-box. The best tool to use for that is NTLite. Its freeware version might be enough, as it supports : Image conversion Basic component removal Host ...

If the display has gone bad due to a video card issue, you're out of luck, the video is integrated into the laptop, so when it goes, you need to replace the processor unit with integrated graphics. If the screen is just broken then you should be able to hook up through the hdmi to an exterior screen, (I have in the past). Do you get anything at all? A ...

Here's what I would try: From your PC with the HDMI cable connected, go to Display Settings and try to get it to display video on the 'HDMI' display output. It doesn't matter what resolution you choose. You cannot output HDMI audio without a video signal. Once you force enable the display, you should be able to output sound via HDMI. You may still have to ...

Actually DVI-I does support audio. This has nothing do with DVI it all depends on if your card has audio like my card it has an HDMI port but I've used DVI to HDMI adapter in the past because I didn't have a mini hdmi to HDMI adapter but I had a DVI to HDMI adapter so I used it. If your card has HDMI on it then yes you can get audio through dvi to hdmi ...

What you might be looking for is EDID, which is extended display identification data. EDID is a protocol designed to query a display monitor and return information to the hardware that is driving the display. Information includes timings supported by the display, display size, etc... EDID is typically hot triggered with a +5V from the HDMI cable, although ...

Looking on this thread here - It seems there may be a link between this monitor and NVIDIA settings for Stereoscopic 3D: For those still looking for a possible solution. I just put on the ASUS vg248qe for the first time and I had a exact sounding issue as the OP. Azza had the answer to my issue which was unchecking the "Stereoscopic 3D" setting in ...

If the laptop can play them back fine on its own then playback on the TV will be identically smooth when you use it instead of the laptops own screen. The only potential issue is when you use BOTH screens simultaneously, eg browser on the laptop and movie on the TV, that may tax the laptop but its unlikely.

Download CRU (Custom Resolution Utility) and change from "Default extension block" to "No extension block". Then, either reboot or run restart.exe/restart64.exe and you should have glorious 1920x1080@60hz over HDMI. You should notice that the TV now detects the signal as "1920x1080@60hz" instead of "1080p 60hz". Note that you'll lose audio with this ...

I'd change the monitor, it can be done but only with an active adapter (that is, hdmi output to a display port input) Looking around, these adapters seem to be quite expensive (>$100 USD), and being active conversation I wouldn't guarantee you'd get all your monitors functionality. Note that you can't use a cheaper DP output to HDMI input adapter, as DP to ...

Faced same problem on my Dell laptop as well. This is what worked for me.. remove power connection from the laptop switch off and switch on monitor and check if it detects if it didn't detect, try Right click >> choose "Display Settings" and try Detecting monitor there if it still didn't work, try with your graphic card software. Mine comes with AMD CCC so ...

You might look up the manual for the docking station, you should add the model of the docking station to the post. It might not support that configuration (some docking stations do, some don't). Or it maybe a docking station driver issue. If it is Windows causing the issue you probably want to make sure under the display setting that You are "Extending ...

To the best of my knowledge Windows does not have the option to switch playback devices for programs that are currently playing audio. Try the third-party program, CheVolume: http://www.chevolume.com/

VGA: is purely analog: low resolution, low quality DVI: is the first digital standard, the digital value in the graphics card is passed to the display, which takes care of displaying it. DVI-D is transports only digital data. DVI-A only analog data (useless), DVI-I both. HDMI: this is the digital standard for home entertainment industry devices, blue-ray ...

There's no real difference between HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI-D at that resolution. Just get a passive HDMI-to-DisplayPort adapter, there's plenty of them. There is no loss in quality because both standards are digital.

Try the following: 1) Windows audio devices: 2) Disable everything you do not want to use: 3) Verify properties of audio device intended to be used (likely this will be 'headphones' or something like that as you are using the AUX port, the playback device should have a 'jack information' panel on the 'General' tab 4) Disable all enhancements for ...

Have you tried right-clicking on the correct audio device (your HDMI port) in "Playback Devices" and choosing "Set as Default"? Edit: After re-reading I see that you mentioned an AUX cable. Try the method mentioned above and if you want audio from the speakers, try selecting them in the Playback Devices instead of the HDMI as I mentioned earlier.

This is clearly caused by the "sharpen" setting on your TV. Most TVs come with the sharpening turned up too high. I suspect it is because people expect HD to look crisp and they all want to be the most crisp image on the store shelf. There ought to be a menu on your tv that allows you to reduce the sharpening to a more acceptable level. In addition, if ...
