According to http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/371378-33-gettings-monitors-work you can sue one analog signal at a time. That would fit your requirements as you only have 2 monitors (one digital and one analog). You also need a DVI-I to VGA connector, because DVI-D does not support analog signals. The cable needs to be M/M (male to male), but always ...

You should be able to use both - I'm pretty sure I've done it before. You do not want to be using the bottom DVI connector in this setup since that's essentially your only analog port. Its DVI-I (which as you'll see can be broken out into VGA) The top DVI connector (that's DVI-D) would be a better option for the monitor that's currently using DVI. ...

It's sort of possible. There's no way to have a separate window on the host for each guest monitor, but you can have one large host window with multiple monitors in the guest. With the VM powered off, go to VM > Settings > Hardware > Display. Select "Specify monitor settings", and set "Number of monitors" to 2 or more. Disable Autofit Guest by going to ...

Instead of using the Windows display settings, have you looked in the system tray for Intel graphics control panel? It should be installed with the full video driver. You can customize your options there.

Is there a utility available with your video card? Sometimes those are handy for customizing the display options from the tray.

Sounds like the Windows 10 equivalent drivers are not allowing the proper drivers to install and take precedent. Lets start with the following steps to correct this: To ensure changes to the driver do not occur without your knowledge, open the Control Panel (right-click Start button and select Control Panel) Navigate to System and Security > System > ...

Looks like I have fixed the problem. I reinstalled the old Intel HD graphic driver and the problem has been resolved straight away.

Try to follow this Windows 10 monitor trouble-shooter : Set up multiple monitors. If this doesn't help, the Intel Communities website says, on Intel Aug 26, 2015, on the thread 4400 and Windows 10 - Dual Display : At this stage after all troubleshooting I would recommend waiting until our engineering department releases a new Windows 10 Graphics ...

Yes, this card DOES support and you can use whatever connections you like. The monitors doesn't have to be of the same size, but there is a upper limit of the resolution. You're ok with 2x 1440x900, and I think you're ok even with 2x 1920x1080 if you use only the digital connections.

Most LCD/LED/Plasma TVs crop the outer of the video input from HDMI although I don't know why. It's not OS depending. For some Samsung TVs you can select the option full 16:9/screen fit to disable cropping. On Sony TVs there are also similar features but I forgot the name. For some other TVs it's impossible to overcome this, but if you're outputting from an ...

Found the solution, if somebody encounters this problem This monitor has two HDMI ports, one of them (HDMI 1) is labeled HDMI-DVI, the other one (HDMI 2), just HDMI.

Fingers get in the way of what you're drawing so I feel you. See if you can use a stylus with the touch screen. This feels a lot more natural. Also, depending on the touch screen manufacturer, some have driver function that lets you shift the "hot spot" away in relation to where you're touching so you can see where you're drawing.

You've actually given a fairly good answer that I really can't match up. So, let me explain my use case for xrandr, in hoping that the next person might be able to benefit from us both. Hopefully my use case for xrandr is a more common one. I plugged in my laptop to HDMI so that I can watch movies from my big TV, but my Xfce isn't giving me any option to ...

This is a script I made on Linux Mint with XFCE for the same kind of setup. Not using Xinerama. My setup was 1st monitor portrait, 2nd and 3rd, landscape. Worked like a charm. The 5 second pause at start was because it was set to start with session, and if it was run too early, it was not working correctly. Note also that in my specific example, I had to ...

Check this and see the picture on he right: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface#Digital The DVI connector on a device is given one of three names, depending on which signals it implements: DVI-I (integrated, combines digital and analog in the same connector; digital may be single or dual link) DVI-D (digital only, single link or dual ...

It turns out the NVidia Configuration utility was the culprit. It disabled the second monitor once I connected the third, causing it to be unavailable to the standard Windows monitor configuration. There was no mention from the utility saying it disabled the monitor. Enabling the monitor in the NVidia utility solved the problem.

NVidia claims this card can connect 4 monitors but only at a certain resolution. Checking other forums like Tom's Hardware Page, people state it won't or not recommended. Other thing is instead of using two DVI port have you tried the the HDMI port. So one using the DP, one using the DVI and another using the HDMI. You know the saying a chain is only as ...

The graphics card may have been damaged from overheating or from some other unknown cause. This happens more frequently than you might think. You could try installing the graphics card in another computer to determine if you can reproduce the problem elsewhere, but the end result will be the same regardless. You'll have to get a replacement card, which ...

Partial solution Disable "Snap" Doesn't fix the whole problem, but makes it a lot less severe. Easy to do: Disable "Snap" in Windows 10. See below for details if link breaks.

From page 68 of the manual: IGPU Multi-Monitor Select disable to disable the integrated graphics when an external graphics card is installed. Select enable to keep the integrated graphics enabled at all times.

I’m pretty sure it’s just a misleading name. My experience is that with Multi-Monitor turned off, you won’t get video signals from the iGPU at all while the dedicated graphics are active.

Someone had a similar problem here. Even if you have both HDMI & VGA outputs, you'll only be able to use one at a time. Or, at best, they will share the same picture output. You will have to use a USB monitor adapter instead.

The comments to your answer are pretty much spot on. It's hard telling without actually looking at it, but I have a hunch that the VGA port runs off of Intel HD on-board graphics, and the HDMI port runs off of the 7730M dedicated card. The reason it works when you use one at a time is because the laptop switches to using the on-board graphics, or the ...

How to break the USB length limitations You can use multiple USB hubs (no more than 5m between them) or Active Cables.

I have done some research and I do not believe this can be fixed. I'm not going to pretend to understand the intricacies of WDDM but it seems to be something to do with version numbers and backwards compatibility. nVidia's GTX555M chipset has drivers that make it compatible with WDDM 2.0, which débuted with Windows 10; Intel have outright stated that the HD ...

Mini DP is just a different form factor, the wires are the same. So at the protocol level, there are no reasons whatsoever why this shouldn't work. At the bare hardware level, the adapter means another contact point, so more opportunities for broken cables and/or bad contacts. Cabling is generally considered critical for DP. You didn't ask for this but ...

You can easily use a HDMI splitter. You would want to find one that is powered so it amplifies the signal. Kind of like this one. I actually use this one for this exact thing. One thing you need to look at though this is distance. How far away are your target displays? HDMI is spec'd for 25 feet. I have ran 50 feet for HDMI without issue, but going through ...

Things to check: The similar U2515H needs to have DP 1.2 enabled, except in the last monitor in the chain which needs to have it disabled. Otherwise Multi-Stream Transport is going to be unreliable or nonfunctional. Your graphics card needs enough throughput on a single port to drive three monitors at whatever resolution you're tring to run them at. xrandr ...

I imagine that your heat concerns are based on the power consumption between the models. Your LG monitor consumes 24 watts nominal and your Fujitsu up to 60 watts. It's also an older monitor, like you've mentioned, so it's reasonable to assume it's using power transfer technology that is more wasteful. LG specs: ...

The USB connection is for power only. You still need to connect a VGA cable for the video signal.

I am just taking a wild guess, but Windows 10 has ITB (in the box) driver for Nvidia. You could try over installing previous whql driver for your system. Provided that the monitor you are running is driven through Nvidia GPU. To check that, Open Nvidia control panel, goto set physX page, you'll see the ports driven by each GPU.

Technically, yes, but be ready for some instability problems. Many motherboards will automatically disable the internal graphics when one connected to the x16 slot is detected. Most also allow one re-enable the option. I don't own a GB motherboard so the instructions are a little bit generic. Restart your computer into your BIOS, whether it be CMOS or ...

In my case the problem was caused by an app (a utility for an external WD HD)running in the background.

I can imagine other apps having the same annoying impact on taskbar behavior so it may well be the ...

You'll need a dual-link DVI adapter, instead of a single-link DVI adapter. After reading many forums from multiple places, it sounds like that's the problem you're having. I found a post from Apple that you can read here The title of the forum post states your exact problem, and I saw the same thing being said on a few other forums (non-Apple forums)
