How To Set Different Wallpapers On Dual Monitor Setup ?

I have two monitors, and would like to setup a different wallpaper for each monitor while retaining the expanded screen option. How to go about that? I am using a Radeon 4770 HD if that helps.


Setup Dual Monitor, Unsynchronized Rotating Wallpapers?

Dec 24, 2012

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..

Dual Monitor Setup - Fullscreen Goes On Wrong Monitor

Aug 14, 2012

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

Dual Monitor Setup

Dec 1, 2009

i have:

Windows XP pro (32 bit)

nVida GeForce FX 5200 has VGA;DVI;SVideo

ok heres what i did b4

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..

HIS 4870 1GB - Dual Monitor Setup

Oct 27, 2009

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?

Dual Monitor Setup Problems

Apr 3, 2009

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've spent a good couple of hours to get this to work or reading up on it, but I just have a 3rd monitor sitting here.

Issues With Wmp 12, Icons, Dual Wallpapers

Nov 17, 2009

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?

Dual Monitor Issue, Secondary Monitor Is Undetectable

Jan 6, 2010

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

"System Halted

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.

Windows 7 Not Recognizing Second Monitor For Dual Monitor?

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.

Dual Monitor Desktops In One Monitor?

Feb 3, 2011

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.

3 Monitor Setup With Nvidia GT 240?

Feb 6, 2012

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.

Dual Drive - SSD And HDD, Setup

Jan 12, 2010

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?

Setup A Dual Boot Never Finished

Sep 18, 2009

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?

Geforce GTX 590 In Conflict With Windows During Triple Monitor Setup

Dec 1, 2011

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?

Bootmgr Missing When Setup Dual Boot

Aug 24, 2009

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.

New System Setup - Dual Boot OS And Application SSD

Jan 14, 2013

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.

Dual Monitor - BSOD

Nov 12, 2009

I have just built a new machine the last three weeks and finally last night I was ready to complete my final transfer from old to new computer. That meant adding my 2nd monitor to my new machine.

My graphics card is a GeForce 9400gt. I have the latest drivers from Nvidia's web site. New machine with Windows 7 has been working for 2 weeks with a single monitor.

Both monitors are fairly new. The graphics card has one DVI and one VGA input so I must set up my dual monitors that way,

My problem is when I hook up my 2nd Monitor I get the BSOD. I will spend 1 more night trying to fix it but that is it.

So my questions are as follows:

1. Does anymore have any ideas why The BSOD comes up when my 2nd monitor is plugged in?

2. Does anyone using Windows 7 have a working graphics card with a dual monitor set up that is working? If so, what card is it? I may be buying one tomorrow.

Dual Monitor Support

Mar 2, 2009

Anyway i have 2 22" LCD Monitors and when i plug them in. Windows 7 does this weird thing were when you select the option to extend the desktop spanning from left to right. Instead of simply scrolling from the left screen to the right screen with your hand as you usually would with any OS, Windows 7 BETA somewhat reverses it were you have to scroll to the left from your 1st monitor to get the 2nd monitor. (sorry if this is really confusing im having a differculty writing this also haha)

And if you select your monitor on your left to be your primary monitor, it will wont do that it will move the it to your right monitor instead so i decided to physically switch the monitors around on my desk to get it normal. but i don't like the idea of my computer telling me what to do hahaha.

I know its a beta OS but its still based somewhat on vista. ive got the latest drivers for my graphics card and my graphics card is a NVIDIA 260GTX so its pretty meaty and it can do dual monitor fine on other os's.

Dual Monitor RDP To XP Computer

Aug 8, 2009

I've searched the internet far and wide as well as these forums and have not been able to find the answer. Unfortunately, my sister-in-law's dog killed my 2nd monitor so I haven't been able to test on my own since installing the RC version last week. (new monitor will arrive next week)

My question:

If you RDP in Windows 7 from a computer with dual monitors to an XP computer with dual monitors is the multimon support available?

I want the session to feel as though I'm at work with dual monitors.... not just spanning the 2 monitors. My work computer runs windows xp.

Currently the only way to get this functionality in xp is to use the span command and to use add-in 3rd part software that does not work that great.

Dual Boot Setup - Unable To Identify Network Error

Mar 3, 2012

Just today I decided to download the Windows 8 consumer preview and setup my PC to dual boot with it.I am running Windows 7 home premium 64bit and the 64 bit windows 8 on my other partition. After setting up a separate partition on my hard drive and loading windows8 to this partition, I was all up and running. I had no problems setting up or running windows 8, the problem came when I booted back to windows 7 for the first time. When I booted into windows 7, I was getting the "unable to identify network" error, and no network connectivity.

First thing I tried was simply disable/enabling my network adapter thinking it was just some hiccup. No luck there. Next I pulled the power from my router, and let it completely reboot. Still no luck. I then shut down my pc and booted back into windows 8 and sure enough I am able to get internet connectivity when I am running windows 8. This got me to thinking that when I loaded windows 8 there may be some new drivers installed for my network card that are somehow causing issues when I load into windows 7 again. Not sure how this is possible.

I was under the understanding that when I loaded Win8 to the separate partition that it would keep all it's drivers and settings there and not effect anything when I was loaded back on windows 7 (This logic could be completely wrong, I don't know). So I rebooted and loaded back into windows 7, went into device manager and uninstalled both network adapters and drivers, and rebooted into windows 7 again so it could re-discover and setup the network cards with default windows 7 drivers. This did not work either and I am still getting the same error.

Dual-Monitor Wallpaper Sizing?

Aug 14, 2009

I'm having a small problem in Windows 7, and that is the two screens I am using have different resolutions & aspect ratios (1680x1050 and 1920x1080).
The problem is my second screen wallpaper stays the same size as my main monitor (1680x1050) instead of filling the entire area. I've tried all the different wallpaper options, Fill, Stretch, Centre, Tile etc, none seem to do anything. I have seen DisplayFusion (DisplayFusion: Multi-Monitor Taskbar and Desktop Wallpaper*|*Binary Fortress Software), but if possible i'd like to fix this little problem without third party software.

The problem comes in when I log off or "switch users" (there are no other user profiles on my computer - I only log off or switch user to make sure the kids can't get on without my permission - they don't know my logon code), the TV loses the picture and goes grainy, but when I log back in, the TV does not "kick in" again. The only way to get the TV to display the second desktop after logging out or switching users seems to be to restart the computer entirely. If it reboots, it picks up the TV as second monitor again.

If you simply log in again, it does not pick up the TV as second monitor. Is this related to some setting that says the TV should only be the second monitor on the admin's account and not for "all users" or something? It is annoying to always be restarting my computer to watch a video on my TV. By the way, in all cases, the "Display" settings in control panel show the TV as the second monitor. But looking at the actual TV, all you see is a grainy screen that obviously is not being fed any clear signal.
