The problem is the HD6450 already came with a dedicated VGA port therefore you cannot convert the DVI to the second VGA monitor since the architecture of the PCB board will not allow to do so. You can either use VGA and HDMI or DVI and HDMI not VGA and DVI period. source

It is currently not possible to configure UltraMon so that UltraMon taskbars are in the same order than the Windows taskbar.

I haven't tried it out yet, but there is a good looking answer here which suggests using the xrandr option scale which should get you the effect you're after.

Without seeing a picture of this, I wonder if what you're seeing could be sub-pixel anti-aliasing gone wrong because the display uses a different sub-pixel ordering than the OS expects. See if turning off sub-pixel anti-aliasing makes the problem go away: System Preferences > General > [ ] Use LCD font smoothing when available Un-check that checkbox ...

For multiple monitors in KDE, you need to replace xrandr with kscreen. Try to install kscreen or kscreen-frameworks. To set it up in Plasma 4 Disable the old screen management: qdbus org.kde.kded /kded org.kde.kded.unloadModule randrmonitor qdbus org.kde.kded /kded org.kde.kded.setModuleAutoloading randrmonitor false Load KScreen KDED module: qdbus ...

A Dell inspiron 1525 does not support more than two monitors at once. Only two displays can run simultaneously Source

Sorry but that isn't going to work. Your DVI-D connector has only one "screen" worth of video in it, in just one format (digital). Converting it to DVI-I gives you a connector with both digital and analog formats, but it's still just one screen to the computer. It would not even work if your computer had DVI-I output. A DVI-I connector has both digital ...

I'd recommend purchasing a USB VGA display adapter. They're fairly cheap and can be picked up at any local shop. That will allow you to connect your second monitor in extended mode.

I was looking for the same solution and suddenly reminded about minitube which does the job perfectly. Just enter unique video id or use the searcher.

Okay, I've solved my own issue and feel like and idiot. I have three monitors, two of which have audio going through to them via DP or HDMI. I still can't change between the two without resorting to physically reconnecting them an the correct order. However I can just swap which cable goes to which monitor, therefore the audio still defaults to HDMI, BUT ...

Despite not knowing what Operating System you are using on the laptop, this page will contain the answer for you. The key is to use the Function Key (Fn) and press F4, which will toggle the display: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Notebook-Display-and-Video/How-do-I-connect-my-laptop-to-an-external-monitor/td-p/519487

I think that "calibrating color" in Windows 7 is a tool to create a color calibration .icc file that tells Windows how to render colors on a monitor. If they're the same monitor, try loading the same .icc calibration file (your computer comes with some basic ones, your monitor might come with some more accurate ones). To look at those, right click on your ...

Not likely. HDMI is a DIGITAL signal. VGA is an ANALOG signal. You can shove as many adapters as you want in that chain, but at the end of the day you're still pushing digital data. The converter box is what CONVERTS (with adapters built in) the signal from digital to analog. For reference, DVI to VGA adapters exist because some DVI cables (not all) can ...

If it's yellowish it means it's missing blue, the probable cause being the blue pin of the signal has an improper contact. Check your wire connectivity. Open paintbrush to see what colors are missing/not displayed. You should see no blue in the color bar if what you described is correct.

This is the same issue as Disable mouse speed check between monitors in windows 8.1 update 1. In my testing of this issue I found that changing the setting to 1 just decreases the speed at which the mouse sticks. Please see my solution in the other post for details.

If your Video Card or Graphics Adapter is listed in the device manager as "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" then you are running it on Windows Standard Drivers. That might result in only one of the available ports on your Video Card being accessible or as in your case both putting out the same signal. Install the Drivers from the Manufacturer and you will be ...

It is possible for free. Swap Screen is very simple program to do that. You have to define other shortcut than win+d, but I still find it convinient enough. For example I bound alt+1 to show desktop 1, alt+2 to show desktop 2. Additionally, this program have some other neat features. One that I find myself using daily is function to move windows to another ...

So that means Windows will support up to sixty-one 1920x1080 displays. Working within those limits, one could create a 7x7 array using forty-nine 1920x1080 displays which (assuming they were all identical in size) would have a 16:9 aspect ratio :) Or do a 7x8 array for a 16:10 ratio. Ooh or do a 360-degrees using 10x6, 12x5, or 15x4... damn I need me some ...

My Chrome froze every time I undocked. When my laptop is docked, the lid is closed and I do everything on my external screen. So when undocking and switching to my laptop screen, chrome froze. Had to kill and restart. This fixed it for me Chrome -> Settings -> Advanced Settings -> Uncheck "Use harware acceleration when available"

Look into Nulana's Remotix. I haven't tested it with dual monitors, but it's listed on the features page. It's as fast or faster than the Native Apple Client.

Another workaround is to uncheck "Displays have separate Spaces" in Mission Control setting located in System Preferences. For me this started happening after 10.10.2.

What nvidia ? The notebook uses intel "HD" 4000 graphics. Because you output a powerful display via that, the CPU will get hot. Although 65C is a little hot, it is still relatively ok. It should be kept under 60C. If it gets above 65C it is recommended you do take some measures to reduce the temperature. it's best that you remove the CPU heatsink, add ...

That's a passive adaptor. It converts a DVI-I into a analogue VGA port. More precisely, it breaks out the analogue portions of a DVI-I connector. It will not work in a proper DVI-D port (or an improper one with a DVI-I socket). To actually convert DVI-D (or any real digital out - displayport, hdmi ect) to VGA you need an active adaptor. If its a DVI-I ...

This problem also occurs on a Retina 15" with a secondary screen which is setup as a screen above the MBP. (Using Photoshop CS6) What happens is that when you move a Photoshop window into the secondary screen it bumps it back to the MBP screen or puts it below view on the secondary screen (as if that screen is much larger than it actually is). When you try ...

Having hit a dead-end trying to establish compatibility... I bought a Samsung S27D850T 27" WQHD monitor... and connected it over HDMI to the Dell 7537 over HDMI. It displays 2560x1440 @60Hz without problems - even when extending the 1080p internal display.

Yes, of course. Just select slide show tab > show on > select the screen you want You can even select Use Presenter View to have a different view on the remaining screen, like narrating time, next slide, or select slides randomly. While presenting on the second screen, you can do anything you want on the remaining screen.

When you attach your projector, it will appear as an additional display ("monitor") on your PC. For Windows 7, do the following. It is very similar in Windows 8. Open the Control Panel, click Appearance and Personalization, click Personalization, and then click Display Settings. To designate the primary display, on the Monitor tab, click the icon that ...

Yes this is completely possible. If you just present your slideshow full screen on one screen you should be able to use the other screen for whatever you need. You are able to just minimize the speaker notes and continue to work.

Try temporarily disabling power-saving features (that could turn-off your monitor) both in windows and [if any] in your monitor on-screen configuration menus and check if this is the source of problem.

This is what worked for me: Go to Control Panel and search for "Touch". Click "Tablet PC Settings" Click "Setup..." to the right of "Configure your pen and touch displays" Choose "Touch Input..." Hit the "Enter" key until you see the instructions appear on your actual touch monitor. Touch the screen and it will say something like "Hit enter to move to the ...

You can use *.* in a Window Location rule to make it work for all applications. Then just set it to "Current Monitor," and "All Windows." That will cause any new window to open on the monitor that the mouse cursor is currently on.

I have had all sorts of "quirks" supporting Dell Latitudes with similar hardware to what you describe (Intel 4600 + Nvidia). Mirror + Extend configurations have never worked in my experience. Since the Lenovo W540 is a laptop, how are the displays connected? Through a docking station? In my Dell experience, I've found that the two digital connections on ...

I have a workaround. Unfortunately, this does not answer your question directly. Perhaps someone will post a better answer. Option 1 Go with your Ctrl + N on Google Chrome, and then follow that up by Windows + Shift + ➡. That'll move your window quickly to the other screen. Option 2 Rather than open a new Google Chrome window and then navigate to a ...

According to the official tech specs, the Dell Latitude E6420 uses the Intel® HD Graphics 3000 and the Dell Latitude E6430s uses Intel® HD Graphics 3000 for Intel Core i3 Processors and the Intel® HD Graphics 4000 for Intel Core i3/i5/i7 3xxxM Processors. So I assume that if the behavior is not the same as the Dell Latitude E6420, you are using a Dell ...

You can either move your application like the above answer mentions (alt+tab) - to select the application (alt+space) - to open options (m) - to start moving this will not work if the application is already fullscreen. In that case, use (alt+space) and (R) to restore the application and then use (alt+space) and (m) combination to ...

If you have one monitor plugged into your graphics card port and one into the integrated graphics port that could be an issue. The settings between the two of these could be completely different and the graphics card connection would usually be much more enhanced.

I just struggle with two monitor system. The console size in graphic mode can be set with fbset, e.g.: fbset -xres 1280 -yres 1024 man fbset show also an example: fbset -fb /dev/fb0 640x480-60 for use in rc.local. I am not sure if it works for all the consoles.

The first comment is correct , your monitor requires calibration. Alternatively you can purchase a computer with properly calibrated monitor out of the box ( the only manufacturer to do this for the past decade is Apple )
