Maybe you could connect a second video cable to the monitor from the same PC, trick it into thinking there's 3 monitors. You would have to switch though. I have a monitor I use with 2 PCs, so one or the other gets dual monitor. When I used a (cheap $10 with remote) HDMI switch, Windows 7 would detect the change and switch all my apps around. So I ...

Is it theoretically possible for a cheapo Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable or adapter to support resolutions above 1920 × 1200, e.g. 2560 × 1440 (QHD)? If you mean with cheap: Passive adaptors which are usually sold cheap. Then yes. Max output from the port will be 1920x1200. If you mean with cheap: Cheapest active cable: No. Display port can output ...

Wow, that was too easy. I disconnected the monitor and reconnected it. Looks like Windows recognized it as some other monitor for some reason (and even rebooting couldn't change it).

I am using dual monitors but I kept only that 1920x1080 one to make the tests. I resolved the issue adding HorizSync and VertRefresh values in /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf Section "Monitor" Identifier "Monitor0" Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync HorizSync 30.0 - 83.0 ...

When you are running a DVI port video card with an HDMI to DVI cable, it runs in single-link DVI mode and the cable doesn't have the bandwidth to drive your 2560x1440 pixel monitor. You need a dual-link DVI cable with no HDMI adapters at any point in the chain so that two DVI channels are used, OR you need a native HDMI source capable of supplying the ...

I have a u2713hm and had the same problem. I am using a DVI-D cable but it was a cheap one so have ordered something more premium, i'll try that when it arrives. In the meantime I managed to get a decent picture by going into the Nvidia control panel > change resolution > customise and dropped the refresh rate 1Hz at a time and testing the new setting. ...

The issue lies with the cable. This cable is a DVI-D Dual Link cable with a max resolution of 2048x1536. Please see the following image for further information regarding cable types. You will need to graduate your graphics card to use HDMI 1.3, 1,4 or DisplayPort as well as the monitor to achieve what you want. Your monitor's native res is 2560x1440. You ...

While somebody already mentioned Nirsoft's nircmd, the best tool from Nirsoft for this purpose is MultiMonitorTool. It supports multi-monitor, saved configurations, 32 and 64 bit, changes in resolution, activation and orientation, etc.

Sorry, you can't. Computers don't know about the physical size of the monitors: only know about the virtual size (that is, the size in pixels).

When connected, left click at the top-left of your Remote connection, then choose smart sizing, then the connection would try to fix the Remote connection Window. And if you would like to make it full screen, maximize it. For the icons within the remote desktop, you might need to configure the resolution within the connection.

I can confirm that @BinaryMisfit is correct on how to disable this. My setup: VMware Workstation 12 Player (Non-commercial use only) Windows 7 Professional (Guest OS) Already set the 'Smaller - 100% (default)' radio button in the guest OS I unchecked the 'Automatically adjust user interface size in the virtual machine' while the guest OS was running ...

The codec being used (both for compression and decompression) and the complexity (amount of change) can cause substantial variances, as can the method of encoding. Particularly with systems with lots of changes, the computer may need to do more work to calculate them out.

What OS are you on? As far as I'm aware, in Windows 10 Display settings, you can manually adjust the screen size and position. Fine tune this along side your resolution, and that should solve your problem!

You will need a high end GPU like a GTX980 Ti or a Titan X At least 32 -64Gb of ram if you plan on rendering and recording in 4k and a good Processor, Intel Xeon or an i7. 4K gaming is very demanding and it's quite expensive to build a rig that can support it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4xDfEOGONw Unfortunately it's not just the GPU and Monitor.

solution — update the onboard Intel HD Graphics 4600 driver. (the problem was I've updated only the Nvidia driver)

Ultimately, how clear something appears in the laptop screen is going to vary more from manufacturer to manufacturer, as well as what settings you use in Windows, and even on your own eyesight. However, speaking in general terms, a 17" screen is not going to be any less clear than a 15" screen if they both have the same pixel count. If your aunt has ...
