You can do this using Display Changer from here. You will want to look at the -left | -right | -top | -bottom | -above | -below parameters. I took this answer from a similar question: Change Display Arrangement via Batch/Command Line on Windows 7 if it doesn't work, their are other answers you may want to look into.

Should that work? No. To daisy chain with display port you need a display port 1.2 source. That source then provides the output for both daisy chained displays. The first display shows its part of the stream. The second monitor is daisy chained from the first monitors DP out but the source of the data is still your desktops DP 1.2 plug. If you use a ...

As @Thebluefish said in his comment, it seems like this is not possible as the laptop doesn't have a DP-out

Nope, your laptop's graphics card only supports 2 displays at once. So you can use both external monitors, or one of them and your laptop display. The only advantage to this is that you can set your laptop to do nothing when the lid is closed and tuck it away somewhere if you connect a usb keyboard and mouse so it can seem like you're using a desktop ...

50 feet is just too long; the signal times and losses are too high, depending on what you are trying to connect, it will not work. i recommend going with a shorter cable if possible at all.

From the link to the cable you provided: This 50' cable supports signals up to 720P/1080i and may support 1080P/4K depending on your equipment. Further: Twisted Veins offers a premium version of this cable which supports 1080P/4K signals. The premium version can be found by at Amazon for "Twisted Veins 50' 4K" Not all 50' HDMI cables are ...

http://www.pchell.com/support/savedesktoplayout.shtml Try the above link this should do the trick. You will have to save the format you want then doa quick restore after using the other monitor. Also could try keeping screen resolution same on both monitors. and or unchecking auto arrange icons. All methods seem to work in some way.

The DisplayPort-HDMI connection is indeed the cause of the problem. The graphics card supports only two TMDS (DVI/HDMI) connections. Because your cable doesn’t have an activate converter but is made for DP++ (Dual-mode DisplayPort), it requires the card to output HDMI on its DisplayPort connector. So you either need a DisplayPort-capable display or an ...

No luck. No configuration (integrated/Optimus) of T530 supports MST (daisy-chaining), which was introduced in Display Port 1.2 . They are all version 1.1 instead. You can however connect them through DVI and Display Port -> DVI/HDMI cables separately. Not sure about HDMI option, but DVI cable doesn't do any conversion since these interfaces are pin ...

I have three monitors and a projector connected to my PC. How I have it set up is I have the side monitors extending the display and the projector duplicating the middle display. This fixes having games start on the wrong monitor and with having a mystery display that you can't see. Plus you can switch between the two without having to restart the game. I'm ...

Yes it will, however the laptops display may be disabled depending on your CPU and GPU. On my HP DV6-6117dx this is the case only two monitors can be active, however on my Lenovo G50-80 this is not the case as it supports three displays at once. Again this is greatly based on you GPU but also your CPU.

It's sounding like the primary monitor for your laptop got reset back to the laptop's screen. You'll need to set the primary monitor to your external monitor and you can find the instructions for that here. Of note, this will probably help resolve your issue with moving to Windows 7 as well. You can find instructions for Windows 7 here. If you're still ...

If each monitor is connected to the PC directly, this can be done with DDC protocol. There are programs you can use with this protocol to provide control.

Yes, I use a dell U2715H with a DisplayPort to mini-DisplayPort with my late 2013 13 inch MacBook Pro. It's not actually thunderbolt to display port. The Mini DisplayPort on your Mac happens to share the connector with the thunderbolt interface, no need to buy any adaptors just make sure you get the correct cable which will connect both ends.

Switching the resolution between Scaled and Default for display worked for me (just switching between various scaled resolutions had no effect).

I had a similar problem, tried everything but no good. By making the screen, that was wrongly rotated, making it the main screen I was able to then change it from portrait to landscape which fixed the rotation issue, then I mKe the other screen the main one as I like it.

Well, there are two things that might be responsible for this: Faulty monitor OS setting Don't know much about mac, but there should be a setting somewhere that allows you to change the screen timeout / screen lock setting. If you've tried that and still have the problem, I'd test with another monitor. Especially the fact that you need to replug it in ...

This solution only works if you have a the bottom of the window in the viewport to grab the handle AND you have a monitor positioned above. the one where the title bar is hidden. If you can, drag the bottom of the photoshop window up above the screen you're on, onto another monitor and let go. You should then have the top bar available to reposition. Other ...

There are several possible issues. Instead of "adapters", you need to use converters (with active circuitry). If either or both "adapters" are bogus adapters (passive devices consisting of wire and connectors), then the connection cannot work. If the DP connection requires HDCP, and the HDMI-to-VGA converter is of the cheaper variety that doesn't ...

Since it happened shortly after upgrading to Windows 10, you may want to ensure your graphics adapter drivers are up to date and try different resolutions and refresh rates to see if you can improve the situation, hoping to prolong its short life expectancy. The fact that it is strictly related to the monitor's warm up indicates that this is a problem with ...

Where @Hardoman description is completely accurate, the shorter answer is simply that you can't magically convert analog signalling to digital. VGA adapters typically only carry the existing analog signals to a display that supports analog inputs. (on the same cable that could do digital) Display-port (and Mini-DP) are digital-only. There is no Analog ...

The trick here is to generate a virtual monitor on the server, place it in relation to the real monitor wherever you would like it to be, then instruct VNC to use that portion of the total monitor (real + virtual) you would like to use.

VGA is analog port using basically 3 signals. When signal is converted between HDMI, DVI and VGA the same 4 contacts are used (see picture): At the same time these signal are missing in Mini DP pure connector. http://pinouts.ru/Video/mini_displayport.shtml So, additional circuit is required inside the adapter to convert signal levels from DP to VGA.

I received some great help by posting on virtualbox.org. I was advised to use VirtualBox Manager to define a second 32-bit virtual machine and choose "Use an existing hard disk file" and tell it to use the only virtual disk file I had in the list, after saving a backup copy of that disk file: WinXP.vdi (normal, 10.00 GB) I fully expected to have to install ...

I have had the same issue where the cursor of the highlighter disappears, so I am then unsure exactly what I am highlighting. Like other answers have mentioned, it definitely seems like a dual screen issue. To be able to see the highlighter, so I'm not just highlighting random things, I just dragged the snip to the other screen and was then able to see the ...

Your best bet is to turn down the resolution of the 4k. This will fulfill your wish for it to behave like a 1080p monitor. If you want to keep your resolutions, though, there is a more sloppy/glitchy alternative that involves some coding. You could write a program that detects your mouse cursor's position and, when you cross the screenborder, jumps it to (...

There are "Virtual Desktop Improvements" in the scheduled Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Build 14316): You can now pin a window so it’s available on every desktop. To do this, launch Task View then right-click on the window you want to pin and choose “Show this window on all desktops”. Try pinning Skype or Groove Music so they’re always at your ...

I used Ultramon software. Then I created two Display Profiles, with the sets up monitors I want to use. Each profiles create a desktop shortcuts. Then I went to the properties of each of those shortcuts and I was able to set the keyboard shortcut.

Connect your second screen to another output of your Radeon R9, there is no need to mix the motherboard in the configuration.


0

There is no connection between the motherboard HDMI socket and your graphics card so it does not work. The motherboard HDMI socket connects to the iGPU that would be built into your processor. If you have a dedicated card (the R9) then the iGPU will have been disabled. You have to use whatever ports are available on the graphics card.

Here is my solution for my dual monitor set up - I Arranged the virtual monitors diagonally like this: When moving the mouse slowly the cursor will not leave the current screen. Moving the mouse fast through the gap works fine. This works in Windows 10, I don't know if older/newer versions of windows (will) have a restriction to this.

You can try the utilities like Mouse Trapper to restrict free mouse movement between the multiple monitors/screens and trap the mouse inside one display. You can still move the cursor over onto other screens by pressing a pre-selected key. Cursor Lock is another similar type of program that confines the mouse cursor to a selected area on the screen.

The presentation console plugin is now integrated with libreoffice. Go to the menu: "slide show -> slide show settings -> multiple displays". Another approach is to export to pdf and then use PDF Presenter Console. You won't have animation, but it works pretty well.

I fixed it with CRU, resolution software, make 1920x1080 resolution at 144 Hz for my Philips TV, even though it doesn't support it, restarted my PC, duplicated screen, and now I have 144 Hz on my monitor, while duplicating screen to my 60 Hz Philips TV.

The utility "CMDOW Commandline Window Utility" would probably work as well, in conjunction with a control batch file to open and position the browser windows. http://www.commandline.co.uk/cmdow/ I wrote a fairly involved batch file that would open/rename/relocate DOS-type command windows. Each DOS window represented an instance of a streaming audio capture ...

You have a few options, the most reasonable one would be to enable what Nvidia calls DSR, on AMD side I believe is called super resolution, that will allow you to run your monitors on higher than native resolution, tricking the OS into thinking they are all 4k, depending on your work load you would even benefit from the 'extra' virtual space or it might not. ...

OK, after a bit more Googling I've found a solution to my specific use case. If I enable PDF previews in Firefox, I can now see the PDF as another tab within Firefox. A lot better.

I'm having the same issue with a cheap DVI-HDMI cable I bought recently. However, when I use a better quality DVI-I cable connected to an Apple DVI-Hdmi adapter, it works! I'm thinking there has to be some electronic component missing in the cheap cable.

As far as i known you can use all ports on this card. Additionally see this specification: http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/desktop/r9. Judging by you can use up to 6 displays.

For the below 'question', if you intend to use VirtualBox, the answer is YES - you can use VirtualBox while Linux host OS still owns and uses GPU if you are not having PCI passthrough: I want to know whether or not this will cause the linux OS to no longer be able to use the graphics cards to display the desktop while the VM is on.

The resolution provided by a graphics adapter is the sum of the total resolution of all the displays used.

OK. I found the solution to the problem. The problem was that Mini Display Port(Thunderbolt) HAS TO HAVE a active adapter connected to be able to successfully convert signals from DP to HDMI. As soon I replaced a regular converter with an Active Converter which I bought from Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-Mini-DisplayPort-Active-Adapter/dp/...
