Go to Control Panel>Power Options and edit your plan options for Laptop Lid Close action and see if it changes the behaviour when you are hot docking.

I know this is 4 years old, but did you have an AMD CPU? If you did, it might have been related to this problem, in which AMD systems with more than 2 CPU-temperature-sensing programs running randomly crash to a black screen with fans at default speeds. Check it and see if it matches.

For others finding this thread: In the link mentioned by @Ken (thank you! thank you! thank you!), the NirSoft tool ControlMyMonitor is mentioned (once again NirSoft to the rescue!). Using this tool, switching the input is possible for certain monitors. Just run the tool, search for the VCP Code Name Input Select (should be always 60, I guess) and check the ...

There's a way to get into Windows 8 while bypassing its current settings. It's called Safe Mode and is designed for when there's a problem with Windows settings. if you press and hold down the Shift key while tapping the F8 key, you will be able to access the Advanced Boot options. Note that this may need a few tries. Try Safe Mode with Networking, or Low ...

Yes, you can! You disabled the video card in Windows 8, but you can use another Operating System, different from Windows, to use the PC, such as a LiveUSB made with Linux. Linux is free (as in beer) and will not cost you anything. The following steps will not erase or change anything saved on the internal drive of the PC. All your pictures, messages, ...

I think I have solution for the problem, at least for me it was working. Driver manager is not installing properly the driver, so in Synaptic package manager I was searching the nvidia-340 driver that I was installing earlier in "Additional drivers" app. Marked for installation the nvidia-340 missing dependencies. And restarted the PC.

You could also use a hardware device such as this to reduce the strain on your graphics card/monitor doing the scaling. See HDMI Splitter 4K 60Hz 1X2 Multi-Resolution Output (MRO) by J-Tech Digital HDMI 2.0: https://www.amazon.com/Splitter-Multi-Resolution-J-Tech-Digital-downscale/dp/B0839PRQ2V

You need to make sure that you rmmod nvidia before you power off the GPU using bbswitch. You also need to: optirun nvidia-smi or optirun lspci -k You should be able to alias it in your .bashrc

This is one of those rare "which is best" questions that actually has a valid, evidence-based answer. When AMD abandoned this generation of GPUs, they left you with 2 choices, the last ever release 15.7.1 or a newer Crimson beta. The general guide for this is to use "the release" Clean install 15.7.1 [there's an option in the Advanced section in the ...

Games often change some display settings in full-screen mode, but don't do that in windowed mode. They may change the resolution, but also other parameters of the display that may interfere with their handling of it. When the screens are in Duplicate mode, the changes propagate to both of them. I believe that this is what is happening in your case. Although ...

nvidia-driver-local-repo-ubuntu1804-440.64.00_1.0-1_amd64.deb is the name of the driver provided by NVIDIA for the Tesla from that web page you provided, so it's not Ubuntu, it's NVIDIA causing the issue. Therefore, I suggest you email or chat with NVIDIA support

Your OpenGL maximum level is determined by your graphics card/chip, not the software installed on your computer. In other words, if you have already installed the latest available drivers and you're still getting this error, then your computer hardware is the problem, and you need to install a more updated video card, or you need to get a different computer ...

Sorry for the late answer. For those who had same problem, you need install both xserver-xorg-video-qxl and spice-vdagent in guest VM. Without latter extra displays will not work.

Oculus quest doesn't use a native video signal from your GPU. Instead, it uses software on your PC to convert the video data into a data stream and send it over USB to the headset. You can just use a USB A to USB C adapter to use it on a normal desktop PC as long as you have an actual USB 3.0 port. Edit: There's also an entry on the official Oculus support ...

In order for PCIE Gen 4 to run you need an x570 (I think the new B550 also support it), 3000 series Ryzen, 5700 or 5700xt, and a Gen 4 M.2 ssd. I recently just built a pc with all those components to have gen 4 and have been having the same issues you've mentioned. Black screens, crashes, weird slow boots. I've clean installed windows and drivers, did not ...

If it really is down to CPU drawing too much power, you can try undervolting the CPU using your BIOS settings. For electronic circuits, power usage goes up with the square of voltage, so a small voltage reduction can result in a large reduction in power / heat. Most Intel CPUs that don't come pre-overclocked from the factory have a fair amount of margin for ...

That 128MB dedicated memory is ‘fake' video memory which is still system RAM. It is permanently allocated to the GPU and is only used by older pre-Vista games which cannot make use of unified graphics/shared memory. The 128MB of VRAM (=dedicated memory) is also used for video engine graphics. Since most of the time, games will need more than that 128 MB of ...

Intel HD Graphics 3000 is a part of the CPU, so it's not repairable, short of replacing the motherboard or the Intel processor.

As standard, many GPU's will set the same refresh rate for both monitors. So, once you plug in your 2nd monitor, the GPU wil choose a refresh rate which both monitors are capable of. So your GPU will set both monitors to 60Hz, and thus your primary monitor won't see more than 60fps. However, given your GPU you should be able to change this: - Right-click ...

In Device Manager -> Display adapters, there were two identical drivers listed. I uninstalled the one that only had recent hardware changes/events recorded. After restarting my notebook, the native resolution had returned, and my device ran a lot smoother! The default graphics driver now appears under ‘Display adapters’.

I found the solution. Don't know why this worked, but plugging my second monitor into the CPU one and switching the primary monitor to DisplayPort fixed the issue.
