When a video is uploaded to Youtube, Youtube compress it to make it easier to deliver. Unfortunately, by its nature this compression reduces quality. (By way of example I looked at sizes of a high res video on youtube. The same video encoded at 1080p was 168MB, while only 97.4MB at 720p. If you have the right tools, you will be able to see that a 1080p ...

The Intel HD Graphics 4600 can in theory support three monitors (link). However, this requires more graphical ports than are available in your notebook. Also, this being a notebook, it's not possible to add in a new graphic card that supports DisplayPort. I think you will need to settle for two monitors, connected to your two ports.

There's 2 sides to consider. Neither of those companies produce their hardware. Production is OEM:d, in case of laptops its Quanta, Compal and a few others. They don't produce the parts either, OEM manufacturers get those from other OEM manufacturers. En masse production necessarily requires a great deal of standardization. So there's a good chance those ...

The voltage is dipping when your air conditioner kicks in. This will happen if your PC and/or AC is a long distance from your breaker panel AND they are on the same circuit. On start up, the AC is drawing more current which means the voltage drop to the wire or I2R losses goes up decreasing voltage at load and hence the monitor shuts down. From ...

The easiest way to solve this (and to put your mind at ease) is to set a screen timeout of 10 minutes. This action does not suspend the machine. When it is not in use, it will go out. I do this with my equipment here.

While I completely agree that is safe to pull the power on a standard LCD monitor, it is always best practice to properly power off any electronic device before pulling the power cord.

It's not harmful for the monitor, if you turn it off first, but it may be harmful to the plug. I don't how many plug/unplug repetition this cable can take before failing. In any case, turning off the monitor should be enough for most cases. Why do you want to unplug it.

It will not harm the monitor to unplug the power cord. There is no need to as modern devices will turn themselves off and reduce power. But no harm to unplug it. Also check if it has a power switch. Note: Whether a device like a monitor or other similar electronic equipment has a "soft" power switch or real (clunk, clunk) power switch, the external ...

This fixed it for me on my Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Yoga 3rd Gen with 500 nits Dolby display: Click Start > Settings > System > Display Uncheck "Change brightness automatically when lighting changes". ...This setting doesn't just automatically change what your current brightness is. It limits how bright your display actually is EVEN when you ...

To narrow things down, I started to install the HP Assistant software, as my plan was to install everything it suggested to download/update. First item from the (long...) list was a BIOS update (the current version was from November 2020 if I remember correctly). After installing the update and rebooting the system, the behaviour described in my question was ...

I had a similar thing on my desktop PC and it was the monitor. I replaced it. All well. Try an external monitor and see if the white spot remains. Most likely not. Will it spread? We cannot say with any clarity. Is it covered under warranty? Check your purchase date and receipt. To repair: Replace the display. Take it to a local shop or send it back ...

The machine appears to be working so most of it is OK. Update BIOS, Chipset, Video, Power Driver and all other drivers. The restart the computer, clear all power management settings (back to default). Restart again, set up Power management and check. I think Power Drivers and setup to be much more likely than a GPU failure because you plugged in the charger....

Have you installed the video driver for the GPU? If no, do this. If yes, do a fresh install the latest video driver, it might have become corrupted. Check the refresh rate of the set resolution is also supported. If all fails, try changing the resolution from safe mode. If you have both integrated and dedicated HPU - did you plug your monitor in the ...

Multiple Monitors program does what you want, although it's not free. It has a free trial to check it out. I tested it with 2 monitors. Going right from right one does send you to the left one like in PacMan, but going up or down only sends you in the same monitor, not the other one (which would me a bit disorienting in my opinion).

Windows 11 comes with its own native GUI capability within WSL2 based on the Wayland display server. In the Linux world there are currently two display servers in common use: Wayland, the new shiny thing that is slated for the future of the Linux Desktop, and X11, the original display server inherited from UNIX. By overriding the X11 DISPLAY variable, you're ...

Tested PSU 24-pin with voltmeter (3.3v, 5.15v, 12v). Only reading I got that was 0v was the purple wire. If you can only see zero volts on the power supply, start by substituting a known working power supply.

In my location (US) you can get VGA cables from eBay or thrift stores for next to nothing. I just looked on eBay and saw them selling for $1. Alternatively, you can post in a forum on the internet or in an app on your phone to find someone local area who can let you borrow/have one.

I'm rebuilding an old PC and the BIOS was reset to factory settings so now it's trying to connect to a VGA monitor instead of a HDMI . BIOS has to recognize the screen. In this case, it is the VGA screen it must recognize. It cannot see the HDMI screen. So your option is limited to finding (friend or some other way) from whom you can borrow a VGA cable and ...

HDMI and DVI-D are compatible digital signals, so I would recommend a simple HDMI to DVI-D cable. VGA is an analog signal and would require an active converter and will require you to plug in a power adapter somewhere at your work area, which can be a problem if you don't have an outlet near by. You will also need an active converter to go from HDMI output ...

Answers are in the comments really (thanks Mokubai and Tonny) but here's a summary: Install drivers for display (not sure if this did anything as I had to do #2 as well, which I did after this). Connect monitor using DisplayPort. HDMI didn't work. My PC doesn't have video over USB-C so haven't tried it. I couldn't find any documentation on this regarding ...
