I tried out Windows 8 for a while. Unfortunately, many of the video games I play crashed a lot, and well, to make a short story short, I have reinstalled Windows 7. One of the features I really liked in Windows 8 is that with a dual monitor set up, my desktop backgrounds not only rotated, but were not synchronized like in Windows 7. For instance, I could have a Battlefield 3 background on one, and a Company of Heroes background on the other... while on Windows 7, if I have Battlefield 3 on one, it will be the same thing on the other display. I can't seem to work out an option to have different "unsynchronized" desktops rotating..
I am running a dual monitor setup with my TV hooked up via HDMI to my laptop.
Everything was working fine before, I always had the laptop as my main display yet I could play a video or a game fullscreen on the TV.
Since a couple of days, as soon as I put something in fullscreen, it immediately goes on my laptop, regardless if it's open on my TV or my laptop. I don't remember changing/installing anything that could've changed that...
I checked a bit in the AMD vision software and the Windows control pannel but I can't seem to solve my problem without switching my TV as the main display. I also made a quick search on google as well as here but the problems were mainly with Flash, which isn't in cause here.
Here are my system specs:
Toshiba Satellite L75D Windows 7 home premium 64-bit AMD Radeon 6520G
i had 2 monitors one vga one and one dvi one and i hooked it up and i had i good dual monitor setup but when ever i loaded some programs the would give me a bsod screen and restart for example fsx dark basic and others that change resolution.
i re installed nvida drivers and there updated (i think)
i have the DVI monitor hooked up right now with 1 display only
i have the desktop manager software enabled and running and the Nvida control pannel running.
and what i want to now is that i want to have a horizontal span setup (reason):
ok well i have seen that FSX can run on 2 monitors and that you can have a really cool display with both displaying images can i do this on a dual monitor setup or not or do i need to get a better card (preferably not)?
What to i do now?
ok so do i go to set up multipul monitors and do it that way or is there another way to do it better theres one last question, well i herd from a friend that in the display options like when you right click in the desktop then goto properties then settings. the friend said that there was an option to enable dual monitor support. before i had my setup i did not see that option and neither do i now im guessing that i don't have 2 monitors hooked up now.
I am obsessed about getting this to work so if i am making any of you people here mad i'm sorry and Thank-You for the help that you have given me recently, btw i got my processor to work and i got it hyperthreaded..
I'm setting up Dual Monitors on my HIS Radeon 4870 1GB GPU. This GPU has 1 x VGA and 1 x DVI output. I have two identical ASUS VW222u monitors. I have installed the latest ATI Catalyst Suite and drivers for this GPU and have Windows 7 up and running with BOTH monitors.
My issue, however, is my primary monitor (DVI output) is running at my ideal resolution of 1680 x 1050, but my second monitor (VGA output) can not run at this resolution. It is only allowing me to choose from a small specific number of resolutions, and 1680 x 1050 is not included (closest is 1600 x 1200, IIRC).
The ATI Catalyst Control Centre is telling me the primary monitor is my ASUS VW222u (Digital), which is correct, but my 2nd monitor is only described as a "Generic Non-PnP CRT Monitor", despite installing the correct monitor drivers etc.
Is this because I am running this second monitor of the VGA output? Will that cause my monitor to not be able to produce my desired 1680 x 1050 resolution? And will running it off the VGA output mean It thinks its a CRT?
On my Windows 7 partition I am unable to use my laptop screen and my 27" LCD Samsung TV as a monitor simultaneously. This was not an issue on my XP partition. I have updated drivers on my video card to no avail.
My TV is connected via a VGA cable. If this cable is connected when I turn my computer on, it will display on the monitor only (but at a much lower resolution than my XP partition allowed) and I am unable to switch back to my laptop monitor without restarting. My display settings wont even recognize that both are connected. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a AMD Radeon HD 6300 series adapter, running windows 7 x64.I have a dual monitor setup,the same monitor on each port an Acer S230hl. One port is an HDMI the other is a VGA. the issue i have is that when i have a worksheet open i can see the gridlines to the cells on the HDMI connected monitor, if i move the sheet over to the vga monitor the gridlines are so light i cannot make out the different cells. it looks like one clean sheet of white paper.i tried different contrast and brightness settings and no luck.
how can i set up dual monitor display on my imac running window 7 with parallels? I have no problem when I run mac but when I run window, dual display doesn't work. I heard AND radeon has some problem with window 7 display setting.
I have a few problems, so I'll do a nice list rather than splatter gunning it onto a post.
1) If I have a window (singular) open with 7 icons in it, how can I move them about? I don't want to arrage by type, auto arrange, sort or any variation there of. I just want to move some icons about in a window, cut the ones I want and leave the rest as is. Any way to do that? I really can't figure it out.
2) Is there a WMP12 to 11 downgrade prog that works on 64bit yet?
3) In XP, if I wanted to set a wallpaper across two screen then I'd make it the size I want (photoshop) then tile it so it would be across the two. That doesn't seem to work now. So is there some trick?
4) Oh, my icons are going a bit iffy. Icons for MP3's and most things that play via WMP12 have gone. Any idea as for a fix?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu.Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
I was having a problem with dual monitor using 7127 build. But only when I use newest NVIDIA drivers. My tv just flashes a few times, and I can see that fish a couple of times, but then it just goes to like no signal. If I use default drivers which are installed on windows install, then it works fine, but then I dont have NVIDIA control panel and some other features.
My video card is GF 8800GTS 650M 512MB DDR3 DUAL DVI TV PCIE. I would like to know if anyone else is having this problem and If it has been fixed in the newest build, so I could be arsed to do a clean install.
I have just did a clean install of Windows 7 ultimate from XP and I am unable to get my dual monitors to work like they did in XP.
I have a DVI Radeon graphics card plugged into the agp slot, and a Nvidia geforce vga adapter plugged into a pci slot of my dell optiplex 755. When I am in the screen resolution settings the second monitor cannot be detected.
In bios I have 2 options under primary video adapter and they are auto, and onboard card. When set to auto the Nvidia card gets a signal but the Radeon does not. There are no conflicts in the device manager, and all of the drivers are up to date.
When I change the bios option to onboard card the Radeon adapter gets a signal but the other monitor cannot be detected and in device manager there is a yellow exclamation mark next to Standard VGA adapter and a code 10 error that states the device could not be started.
I have powered down, and unplugged every cable, I also tried to use the integrated VGA adapter to the Intel G31/G33/Q33/Q35 Graphics Controller but the computer will not even boot. I get
Attention Unsupported Video Configuration Detected"
I have two monitors, both work fine as standalone but Windows will not detect either as a secondary.
Please help me someone, I am so used to having my helpdesk email open in one monitor and all of my other work in the other monitor.
This computer is running an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro. It does support dual monitors...(I've had dual monitors active on this card before, but never on Windows 7.) But since installing windows 7, I can't even get it to detect the second monitor. I want to run the setup with the CRT as the primary monitor and the HD as the secondary.
I'm using a television (32p) as a second monitor in extended mode so that I can watch a movie in the TV and play a game in the monitor (this was my main goal). Monitor and TV lays in two different ambients, both connected to the same pc, one by normal VGA cable and the other by HDMI. I managed to differentiate the audio output so that VLC player sends it's audio to the HDMI (so that only the TV plays it) and the rest of system sounds, media players and games outputs to the speakers (basically only the VLC audio is directed to another output device). I reached my goal so that I can watch a movie fullscreen in the TV and play a game in the monitor fullscreen too without any interference from one another (nor audio or video).
The thing is, because I have the TV in another ambient I can't actually see what's going on in it, as I just "throw" the VLC window to the TV from my main monitor. And here's the question: There's a way to see the TV's desktop in my monitor? Without having to set it as main monitor so to not really switch between desktops.. The perfect thing would be if I could see the TV's desktop in a window like in remote desktops applications.
I have an ASUS P6T SE motherboard with an NVIDIA GeForce GT 240 graphics card (512MB) already installed. I would like to connect 3 monitors to my PC but apparently the card only supports two concurrent ones.I use my PC mainly for web design and development, plus recreation such as watching movies, however I don't use it for gaming.Monitor sizes and inputs they support
17 inch: VGA 24 inch monitor: HDMI/VGA 23 inch: DVI/VGA
What is the best option for me to add the 3rd monitor? My main consideration is price, I don't want to spend too much money just for adding another monitor to my setup. My PC runs pretty quietly now and I want it to remain like that, so noisy cards are a big no for me. I've read about USB to DVI adapters but it seems they are not so powerful as proper graphics cards. The other option would be to add another card to my existing one, something basic that can run my third monitor. I'm not sure if this is at all possible, and what cards you suggest.And the 3rd option would be to take out my card and replace it with an ATI card that supports 3 outputs out of the box.
am trying to install windows on a laptop with broken screen it will not display on crt monitor when running setup.how would i change this. trying to either install vista or 7 hp dv9000 entertainment series
I am having a issue setting up 2 monitors. I think maybe I cant run one through my graphic card and my VGA port on my motherboard at the same time.... Right now I am running my monitor through a nvidia 8400 gs but I thought I could run another on my VGA port on the motherboard also.
I need a dual boot setup. I have a new 320 GB SATA hard drive and I need to replace an old 80 GB hard drive. I have a Windows XP Home disc that came with the machine and the Windows 7 Professional Upgrade disc. What do I need to do in order to have a painless dual boot setup. I want to be able to choose before the system starts booting.
The bosses wife has a new Toshiba P500 configured with a 64gSSD as a C: drive and a 320gHHD for a D: drive. I'm about to take it from Vista to W7. While backing it up I noticed the SSD was full. Since it's the C: drive windows is storing everything on it.
I would imagine that the best thing would be to put the OS on the SSD and everything else on the HHD, but if the user uses My Documents, My Music, My Pictures etc. folder it will all go on the SSD drive and fill it up. Does anyone know a quick fix to make W7 store data on the D: drive? Any other ideas on how I should set this up for a 'non power user' user?
Yesterday I tried To install the last RC before RTM v7600.16385 64bit on my dv9000
I am currently running RC7100 no problems yet... since May, So i started installing this newest build on my spare HDD (drive F) I was looking to try out the latest as a dual boot situation (at least that was my original plan) So I set Off- and it looked suspiciously like it was erasing my drive C plus it hung up on install(or I got Paranoid and canceled the install) either way after the cancellation it rolled back to previous state(no files were harmed...)but now on my boot screen it offers me windows set-up and below that in the list windows 7 Ultimate(recovered) it never did that before when I select Set Up it goes into the 7 set up screen (light blue with plants) and restarts continually never finishes ... that is the first thing, Secondly when I select windows 7 ult.
(recovered) it boots normal! How do i remove the option for "Set Up" under the boot screen and also change the windows 7 Recovered back to normal, I tried restoring to a previous State using System restore and selected a point 3 days prior to yesterday but on start up it does the same thing The set up is first on the boot list How can I get my system back to normal I cant do a fresh install I have to much valuable stuff that i cant risk losing I tried restore and it apparently didnt help, what else can I do...Will a repair install help and if so Will it erase any programs and personal Data such as Itunes Libraries and photos and misc.. programs and will it dump the other set up on the boot screen?
It may be because there are 3 DVI ports on the one card but Win 7 does not recognise all 3 monitors, only 2.
On the contrary the Nvidia control panel recognises all 3 monitors and I am able to configure all 3 screens with a res of 5760 / 1080. All is fine until I reboot and then nothing. All monitors blank. I can only assume that it's because of a conflict with the Nvidia driver (latest) and windows.
My question is, is it possible to force windows to recognise all 3 monitors?

I have 3 hard drives in my computer. One for Windows XP Professional, one for Windows 7 Ultimate and one just for storage. My question is can I change my Windows 7 installation to 64 bit and still be able to run XP?
I spent the day trying to fix my operating systems boot.
Earlier in the day i tried to install a MacOSX (I've formated the second hard-drive asoff now) on a seperate hard-drive (CRIVE AKA Windows 7 drive was unplugged). After i was done i decided to plug in the c drive because i wanted to get on windows to setup dualboot. But for some reason it said bootmgr missing...
I've tried bootrec /fixboot and the other ones.
I just checked my drive somehow Cdrive turned in to D drive would that be the problem? Could somebody please show me a way to change from D drive to C drive?
If this would help nail the problem. Also tried to boot the hard-drive from my laptop via esata. I get a different problem i get a blue screen during the Windows seven loading screen. Heres the stop code: 0x0000007b.
I am at a bit of a loss here in regards to partitions, as I've never really done it, I want to configure a new system setup under the following circumstances:
SSD(1): (dual-boot OS drive) + Partition 1: Windows 7 + Partition 2: Windows Server 2012
SSD(2): (program / file drive) + Partition 1: one large single partition for application / program storage; e.g., Visual Studio 2012 and SharePoint Server 2013.
I need to have an instance of Windows Server to use SharePoint Server. At times I will want to run the server set-up to facilitate TFS and SharePoint with a very small team of developers, school related for example. And at other times I would like to boot into Windows 7 Ultimate so I can have a normal browsing experience and play games, etc. But of course I could also develop with VS11.X in Win 7 environment if needed.
My question, is what I'm proposing possible? I want to use Windows 7 normally most the times, but at others I will require Server 2012 to use SharePoint. Can I share the same program resources on the second SSD regardless what OS I boot into? What issues may rise if I tried running SharePoint (or just having SharePoint) while booted into Windows 7? Will I have to create two partitions on the 2nd SSD, a copy of apps for each OS due to system registry constraints.
When win 7 open up, what I see on my single display is a desktop screen of a tipical secondary display that would be placed on the right of the main screen.
I go into desktop properties and I see that win7 detect and show 2 screens as if I had a dual screen setup. But I only have one 24" screen. I always need to ask win7 to "detect" the screens again, then it automaticly delete the second "non-existent" screen.
My setup is Dell Sudio XPS 9100 I7 930 5870 geforce 12go ram win7
Friend has a dual monitor and wants to play a game across both of them, the problem is the option doesn't appear I think it might be the new driver he installed. I tried installing Hydravision which has an option to span across displays but it doesn't work can anyone help?
