My system is: ASUS n56v laptop with Geforce GT 740m; HDMI and VGA outputs. Windows 8.1.
I am trying to extend the desktop of my laptop by using two monitors (LG 24MP55 with capability of 1920x1080 resolution and have HDMI and VGA interface) and an external one-to-two monitor adapter (Matrox DualHead2Go digital edition with VGA input and 2 DVI outputs). The Matrox adapter makes the two external monitors attached to it appear as one big display #2 in my screen resolution settings.
The built-in monitor of my laptop is 1920x1080 resolution. But the maximum resolution I can reach on the LG monitors 2x[ 1280x1024 ] instead of the 2x[1920x1080] that I expect.
When I try to increase the resolution of the LG monitors to my desired level the system gives me the error "out of range". That is, the image on each of the external monitors' screens disappears and on the black screens appears the error:
"D-sub out of range 104.8kHZ/50Hz"
Additional information: The DualHead2Go digital edition has 1 VGA input and 2 DVI outputs. I use DVI to VGA adapters because the LG 24MP55's don't have DVI inputs.
If I connect my laptop to one of the monitors in order to extend my desktop everything works great.
I also tried to clone my desktop onto the 2 monitors by using some noname video signal splitter by using HDMI interface and the monitors also showed 1920x1080 resolution.
