Which display manager are you using?

With newer model Motherboards, such as the Z77-G45 Gaming board, you can enable a setting called IGD Multi-Monitor. This allows you to use your Motherboards specific display driver as an active display, alongside your Graphics Card. If you pin through your Motherboard BIOS settings, and search for this option, you should be able to accomplish this task. ...

According to this website: To put this in perspective, and illustrate why HDMI 2.0 is so important and necessary, we can take a look at current televisions on the market. The HDMI 1.4a ports on current UHD TVs from Samsung, LG, Toshiba and Sony can receive full resolution UHD or 2160p signals (3840x2160), but they can't do so at frame rates greater than ...

AquaSnap worths a try. It has many window management features (similar to Aero Snap in Windows 7 / 8, but more powerful), keyboard shortcuts for moving windows across monitors, and there is a portable version. However, the free version does not have multi-monitor support, but the paid version is cheap.

Windows is rotating the display using the video-card graphics software. Unfortunately, that solution doesn’t rotate anything else, meaning that your touchpad is still configured for standard, landscape usage. So, if you rotate your desktop on a laptop, the touchpad will not rotate with the screen, which makes the touchpad somewhat difficult to use. As ...

Unfortunately it's usually not an option to have both of the external screens going. See http://askubuntu.com/questions/501379/cant-use-both-display-outputs-on-xps-laptop https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/unity-control-center/+bug/1304627 From what I understand the problem is that the 2 inputs are usually connected to separate graphics cards ...

Some monitors have an "auto-adjust" button/menu feature that re-adjusts the picture onto the display and often fixes symptoms of part of the screen being "cut off".

I made this for full-screen games specifically: https://github.com/CyberShadow/AutoMouseLock It will automatically lock the mouse to one monitor as long as the active program is running in full-screen.

I believe this can be achieved by changing the "Displaydevice" option in Real VNCViewer. Refer how to do this

You can use both cards in your system at the same time. However, not connected to each other. One is crossfire compatible, while the other is SLI compatible. You can choose how to orient them and decide which one going to be your main GPU, while the other will essentially serve as a PhysX card (760).

Macbook Pro 15", early 2011. I had similar issues (Black screen. Crashes. A kernel panic) and noticed that the symptoms usually occurred after a period of use and usually when displaying video on the screen or when CPU load was high. Hypothesis: Machine is overheating. I found iStat Menus from Bjango.com. This allows one to control fan speed (other apps ...

You did not mention if you use windows but if you do, maybe this will help you. You can choose to mirror, or duplicate, your desktop on all displays. A mirrored desktop—the default display option—is useful if you plan to use your mobile PC to give a presentation on a projector or a fixed display in a conference room, such as a wall-mounted plasma display or ...

Windows 7 Professional does not support Multi-Monitor RDP. Only Enterprise and Ultimate do. The Spanning feature works somewhat different: It simulates a single large monitor, as opposed to multiple monitors.

The command mstsc.exe /span should open a Remote Desktop session using all available space. This seems to work differently to the "Use all my monitors for the remote session" checkbox. I can't vouch for it working under your particular circumstances, though.

I have opensourced a small program (two, in fact) to solve this.

Start your guest and perform the standard "Extend the desktop onto this display" method based on the Guest OS. (Guest Additions need to be installed.) This one confused me. I looked all over the Guest Additions and couldn't find it. In the hopes that it might help someone else, it is talking about the Control Panel in Windows itself. In the Control Panel ...

in the end i discovered this card doesn't support dual analog inputs, only one. to connect two monitors you'll need to use a vga and a digital entry (dvi to hdmi or just hdmi). using a digital to analog adapter won't work.

Single display + Compiz Here's an idea: Having all monitors on the same display opens up all kinds of tricks you can do with compiz. There's the scale plugin which can show live previews of a group of windows for instance. The tricky part will be to find the right settings for your case since you can't see the other monitors...

It sounds like your monitors are mirrored\duplicated. You'll need to set it to Extend mode. Right-click on your desktop and click Screen Resolution Click the arrow on the dropdown by Multiple Displays and pick the Extend these displays. Screenshot is from Windows 8.1, although it should be very similar to Windows 7.

It will not be a problem. HDMI and DVI use the same signal, being that HDMI carries sound and DVI doesn't. You can confidently buy a DVI monitor.

For about three years I have used Actual Multiple Monitors software on the three horizontal monitors and it works great to do wraparound (all directions if desired) as well as a number of other multi monitor features

If you wanted to check if the port is completely dead you could measure the voltage coming out of the DVI port of your video card. You would need a multimeter to do it though. Pin 14 is +5v and 15 is ground. If you put a multimeter to it and see nothing, then your port is likely dead. A diagram of the pinout can be found myah: ...

So far the only way to get the taskbar back I have found is to click the lonely Start button, click Windows Security, choose Start Task Manager, kill the explorer.exe process and start it again in the Task Manager from File > Run.

I'm currently using DisplayFusion Pro for window location (not only). I don't know how this works when you disconnect and connect your monitor - I have three always.

Alot of windows users had this issue, an application was developed and shared within the windows 7 forums as shown here: http://www.sevenforums.com/free-developer-programs-projects/40916-shellfolderfix-manage-folder-window-positions-size.html#post396744 There are instructions on the site which help and it should fix your issue.

The problem is that Windows applications don't really see multiple monitors. The window manager keeps track of window positions in reference to the Top-Left corner or your main display. I'm not aware of any commercial applications that do, but you could write an application in C# or even VB.NET that could write these values to a file and restore them ...

Another thing to check: in BIOS Setup of some motherboards, there is switch for DVI and HDMI connectors, as they can't be used simultaneously. I've not found anything like that in manual of your motherboard though, but it may be outdated (for older BIOS version), so better check it yourself. It should be on Peripherals page of BIOS Setup (§2-6/page 35 of ...

there is no way to get a 3 monitor display with vga included. i had the same problem with my fathers computer but luckily his mobo also had a display port. your only chance it to get an after market graphics card to either crossfire with or use aside from your apu. if you do decide to use an aftermarket card without crossfiring you will experience a slight ...

I've been using Display fusion for a couple years now. It is well integrated with Windows 7/8/8.1 and adds many features that I didn't realise I wanted until I used them (e.g. window position snapping). It even has the clock on the extended monitor.

Ok, I found the answer myself, which I will post for anyone with the same problem. Turns out after the reboot the system didn't recognize the physical positions of the monitors. To fix, which was by accident testing things out, I did the following: Right click a blank area on the desktop and select Screen Resolution. A picture of the two displays comes ...

Well the difference is not so much between the cables but more between the differences of digital and analog signals so you will get advantages using DVI such as sharper edges, less interference on the cable so again better quality images, it can cut out some 'flickering' on the screen compared to VGA. This can be a very overly complicated subject and I've ...

I tried several different DPI settings and several different resolutions for my MBP. Wasn't happy with any of them. I hear that Windows 8.1 allows you to set different DPI settings for each monitor. That would be nice... The solution I'm happiest with is: Put the external monitor in front of me. Tell Windows it is my primary monitor, where the start ...

Assuming desktop, not modern UI (metro) mode. Do you want to turn off Snap or just make snap only fill one screen. Try dragging it to the top of the bottom screen instead of the bottom/bottom so it snaps down.

Not sure if this can be done on system level, but below is a working script using AutoHotKey to achieve this. Press Shift+Win+Up to activate. Of course you can assign to other hotkeys.

I think it's something wrong with current X-org or with current NVidia drivers and software, or it's about 64-bit versions.

I had horrible color hue offset (blue faces, red trees or something like that). I was ...

I am currently using the Seiki 4k 39" TV (SE39UY04) as my monitor and I spend more than 8 hours per day in front of it. Just to share a bit my experiences. 39 inch flat screen is an awkward form factor. I position the 4k TV so that I look straight at 1~2 inch below the center. But 39" is so big that I'm looking the corners of it at an angle (i.e. oblique). ...

Latest Mavericks (10.9.5 as of 2014-09-26). The dock shows up in both monitors for me which is how I like it.

By "interact" I mean do literally anything with it. Turn magnification on and off again, whatever ...
