Graphic Cards :: Setup Two Screens In Windows 8?

Oct 10, 2013

My computer is an HP Laptop with a 17" screen. Today I connected a stand a lone monitor that is about 22". I've managed to get the resolution for the Laptop back to standard or native resolution.

However I'm going around in circles trying to get the larger monitor to it's proper resolution. How might I go about doing this and get the larger to respond independently from the Laptop Monitor?

Do I need some software to accomplish this or what?

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 Not Remembering Resolution And Additional Screens

Jan 21, 2014

I have 5 screens, 3 screens connected to a display card, and 2 on motherboard.

When i was with windows 7, no problem at all for the past 2 years. Once upgraded to Windows 8.1, windows DOES recognise all 5 screens, however, it will revert back to a single screen and 800 x 600 resolution.

I will have to enable and reposition all screens again until the next restart.

Graphic Cards :: Multiple Monitors / Screens - How To Get Different Resolutions

Dec 24, 2013

I have a brand-new HDCP supporting monitor (native resolution 1920 x 1080,) on which I play the latest blu ray movies from the computers built-in blu ray drive, and a 9 year old flat screen non-HD plasma TV (on which I watch You Tube, BBC iPlayer and 4OD, streamed from the PC via a VGA cable,) both connected to my GT610 NVidia graphics card.

It seems I can only get them at the same resolution. My desktop does however have it's own on board graphics processor. Is it possible to run these two devices at different resolutions? (Since the ancient flat screen can only handle resolutions up to 1600 x 1200.)

Graphic Cards :: Scaling On High-resolution Screens?

Mar 28, 2014

I bought a new laptop with a 13" but HIGH (3800x1800) resolution screen.

Windows 8.1 has a display feature where ALL objects can be scaled larger to deal with the fine resolution.

However, I have one program on the desktop that sometimes flips this off and "goes native".

Graphic Cards :: Random Rectangles Scattered On Some Screens?

Aug 9, 2013

I am having a slight issue with what I am assuming is my video card. I have a Powercolor HD7870 Tahiti MYST Edition and on some screens I will get these random rectangles that show up. I have a few pictures to show what I am talking about.

It almost always happens when I am on Twitter and most other websites dont have this issue. It is more annoying than anything else, it doesn't seem to affect anything but I figured that I would post here and hope that it isn't a big issue.

Graphic Cards :: XFX 7950 Causing Black Screens And Loud Fan Noise

Jan 4, 2014

Since yesterday, my graphics card has been starting to go to black screens and emit loud fan noises. I suspect it may be due to a recent update regarding something about WDDM 1.3 since that too was installed yesterday.

I have managed to play The Sims 3 at max settings today without the problem, but the problem kept recurring after that. Even with non-intensive activities like watching YouTube brought my desktop to a screaming halt, literally.

Graphic Cards :: Multiple Monitors Setup (Up To 8 Possible)

Jul 16, 2013

I've been looking at some of the MATROX graphic cards for multi-monitor output -- up to 8 possible !!

Now any decent software to run these -- the standard software seems OK at running TWO monitors but I want to be able to run several more. You can run more but it gets a bit complicated managing this from within the standard windows system itself.

Graphic Cards :: Triple Monitor Setup (Display Port)

Jul 25, 2014

So I'm running 2xR9 290X (crossfire) with 3xQnix Qx2710 monitors. One of the qnix monitors was purchased with HDMI/DisplayPort connectors along with the usual DVI connector (normally these monitors only come with the D-DVI input)

I had a 2 monitor (with just the two DVI-only monitors) setup for a while that was working fine.

Since installing the third monitor I'm experiencing several weird things:

- On boot, until the Windows login screen comes up (Windows 8.1), there is nothing on the non-primary DVI monitor (so my setup is my primary monitor is one of the two DVI monitors, and then the left and right monitors is another DVI-only and the DP monitor).

- If the monitors go to sleep, or I put the computer to sleep and wake it up, any windows that were on the non-primary DVI monitor are moved over to the primary DVI monitor. Windows on the DP monitor do not move in this configuration.

- Within CCC, after sleep / monitors off, I have to restart CCC's control of the color settings for the non-primary DVI monitor. (I'm forgetting what the actual button says, but it's the button under the Display color controls settings where you can manipulate the R/G/B channels - I have to use the GPU for color matching since the monitors don't have any inherent ways to change R/G/B levels

If I only connect the two DVI monitors this is not an issue.

If I connect one DVI and the DP monitor, after sleep/wake any windows that were on the DP monitor are moved over to the primary monitor (again, note that this didn't happen when all 3 monitors were connected).

I have tried the newest version of CCC, as well as the current beta version - same behavior in both.

I have tried using HDMI instead of DP - same behavior

Aspects of this sound similar to the issues discussed in this post : [URL] ......

What I don't understand is why the second DVI monitor is acting so oddly when all 3 monitors are connected. Why would there be no picture when the computer boots?

Graphic Cards :: Cannot Install Intel Graphic Drivers After Windows 8.1 Update?

Mar 1, 2014

My computer is hp envy dv6 7280sf notebook with 2 GPUs intel graphics HD 4000 and Nvidia Gefoce 630 M running windows 8 64x.

After making an free upgrade online for windows 8.1 which run successfully, both gpus were ok...

But after receiving a windows update with new drivers for intel graphics 4000 gpu , after install and restart , the computer freezes on blank black screen at windows startup with no mouse or anything only backlight.

So safemode was succeful but i figured that the update for windos update was the cause and graphics drivers were installed so i removed the drivers for intel graphics and itried to reboot the computer so the restart was succeful but the intel graphics card was unistalled and no drivers were automatically installed so i tried to download and install the drivers from hp and intel website for windows 8.1 however the install fails.

Automatic install from device manager failed both online and from computer and even from manual driver selection.

So therefore the install failed in safe mode , and the high def audio device ( on screen audio possibly) failed and the device was not recongnized (no drivers installed) so i'm stuck without anydrivers for the integrated gpu and the games are no longer able to run normally even if the nvidia card is on.

I tried downloading an installing Windows 8 drives but it failed to install also , for instance any new install of drovers seems to fail for me even for external usb hard drive.

Graphic Cards :: Win 8.1 - Multiple Video Cards Locking Up

Feb 21, 2014

I'm building a system for cryptocoin mining, and am having a little problem with getting Windows 8.1 (home, not pro) to run the 3rd card (GPU) My equipment is:

Gigabyte 990 FXA UD3 MOBO
AMD Vishera CPU
2x4 gig Corsair Ram
3x Sapphire r9 280x Video cards
1000w Corsair PSU
Scandisk SSD

All parts are brand new.

Here is the problem... everything boots just fine and runs with 2 of the GPU's installed. I have the latest AMD 13.12 drivers, and the AMD APP SKD installed. When I add the 3rd GPU though, windows will auto detect it as a Radeon 7900 with the caution sign, AND/OR a r9 200 series card, also with the caution sign, most times BOTH. Then it randomly freezes the system. A couple of times I got it to run long enough just by luck I guess, to install the 13.12 drivers on the 3rd GPU, but then in a few minuites the system would freeze again.

2 GPU's run just fine, the problem only shows up when the 3rd card is installed, and it happens on any of the 4 16x slots, or both 1x slots on the MOBO. It doesn't matter if the GPU's are directly on the MOBO, or on 1x16 risers. There are plenty of folks running this set up with up to 6 GPU's, so I know it can be done, but I must be missing something somewhere in the windows set up.

Graphic Cards :: Running Dual Video Cards (PCI / PCI-E)

Sep 5, 2013

I've got a bit of a strange issue that I haven't had with previous OSes on this PC. I'm running a Dell OptiPlex 380 with Win 8 x64 at the office and I have to run 2 video cards for all of my screens. I have a GeForce 8400GS in the PCI-E slot and a GeForce 6200 in the PCI slot.

Previous to the Win 8 install, it worked fine. Booted exactly as I had shut it off. Now, with 8 - it's killing my PCI-E card presumably when it puts the screens to sleep when I leave for the day. So I'm coming in to all of my windows being moved to the PCI card's monitor (only one hooked to it) and I have to reboot to get PCI-E card to come back.

If I check the screen properties, I see only the screen hooked to the PCI card. I've changed the setting in the BIOS for the first video card to Auto and also tried the PCI-E selection and it's the same either way.

Why on earth would it default to the PCI card rather than the PCI-E card?

Graphic Cards :: AMD Compatibility With Windows 8.1

Dec 13, 2013

My Sapphire AMD HD 7870 just bit the dust so it has been sent back with an RMA. I had hoped to replace it with an ASUS AMD HD 3850 but Windows 8.1 will not work with it. There is an error message on a blue screen something about a header (I don't have the exact error message today).

I suspected it was a driver problem so uninstalled the existing driver and tried to install the latest AMD one. I can uninstall OK but as soon as I reboot the Microsoft driver installs itself giving me no opportunity to install the AMD one.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 - Odd Resolution Discrepancy

Feb 2, 2014

I recently updated to Windows 8.1 (64-bit), and I immediately noticed that my resolution had taken a strange turn. Everything except the taskbar seems to be a lower resolution than before. This suspicion was only strengthened when I launched a game that I had running in 1440x900 windowed, and it didn't fit properly on the screen. I checked my display settings and used printscreen to check the resolution and both said 1920x1080, but when I used Puush to take a desktop screenshot, it came out as 1536x864, whereas before installing 8.1, desktop screenshots came out as 1920x1080. I tried changing the resolution and changing it back, but I'm still having the issue.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.0 X64 AMD HD7310 Driver?

Sep 15, 2014

Every time I try to download the HD7310 AMD driver instead I get a program that wants to charge me to auto update all my drivers.

I just want to download the latest Windows 8.0 64 bit driver for HD7310. I'm on a Laptop and the video text is horrid. I have catalyst software installed but every time I try to adjust brightness and/or contrast it looks nothing like the sample page. It gets progressively worse the more I attempt to adjust it. I can't believe it's this tough to get legible text on a monitor in this day and age.

Graphic Cards :: AMD Drivers Keeps Crashing In Windows 8

Mar 15, 2013

Ever since I installed Windows -8 Pro ( 64 bit ) on my MultiMonitor system, all my screens go black with following error message.

" AMD Drivers stopped Responding & has Recovered"

It happens so many times an hour that I had to stop usingWindows -8 completely. Even the worst thing is that if I have more than one harddrive & driver crashes, then on next reboot my system automatically startsdisk checking which takes hours for a 3.0 GB slave HDD. I never had thisproblem with Windows -7 using the same system.

My system configuration is as follows.

Dell T-7500 Workstation.
Intel Xeon E5645 2.4GHz
AMD Fire Pro 2460 Video Cards ( 3 of them. Each supports 4Monitors )
12 Dell 24 inch ( 1920x1200) Monitors

I downloaded AMD Drivers for workstation & FirePro 2460Video card from following AMD Links.

AMD has not updated Drivers since December 2012.

Graphic Cards :: New To Windows - Setting Up 2nd Monitor

Feb 15, 2013

I am running Windows 8 on a Samsung 350V5C laptop 6GB RAM.

I'm struggling connecting to a second monitor, the problem being my laptop connects OK VGA to VGA but doesn't stay connected. After 5 seconds i get the disconnected 'beep beep' then it immediately reconnects and again after 5 seconds disconnects again. I did get it to stay connected the other day so i know it works but is was pure luck and just trial and error, however, when i went to connect again i got the same problem, also when it did stay connected i just got 'duplicate screen' when i just want 'Second Monitor Only'.

Here's what I did: Control Panel > Hardware & Sound > Display > Project to a second screen, then i have tried all 4 options PC only/Extend/Duplicate/Second only and i get the disconnect then reconnect every 5 seconds again.

Do I have to change any other settings, either on monitor or laptop?

Graphic Cards :: Possible To Use WDDM 1.2 Driver For Windows 8?

Apr 5, 2013

I have to reinstall Windows 8 on my laptop for some reason. So after installation finished I went to Device Manager for Installing Drivers. After all the other drivers like Chipset, Network, Audio etc, I went to the Install the Display Driver. There I noticed that under the Display tab my NVIDIA GT 650M is already listed but usually if any Device driver is not installed then it will be shown as Unknown Device or Standard VGA Adapter. But here it shows that it is working and one more Thing I noticed is that in the display tab it was written:-

NVIDIA GT 650M (Microsoft Corporation-WDDM 1.2)

So my question is that should I install the NVIDIA driver from my ASUS Driver And Software Utility Disk or should I keep it as it is? I have heard somewhere that WDDM drivers works better than any other Driver with Windows 8. Is it true? I didn't get any Performance Fall or any BSODs etc and games are also working.

Graphic Cards :: Windows 8.1 Pro - ASUS HD7790 Causes Freezes

Feb 11, 2014

After upgrading from Win7 (x64) to Windows 8.1 Professional N (x64) my system started to freeze randomly. It seems to be a driver related issue, since the freezes do not occur, when I disable the video card in the device manager. I recently upgraded to the new beta driver (v14.1) which made it even worse.

I contacted the ASUS-support already. They said the card is broken - which does sound strange to me, since it worked fine using WIN7.

Hardware specs are:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4570
MB: ASRock Fatal1ty H87 Performance
Video: Asus HD7790-DC2OC-2GD5
Memory: 2x 4GB DDR3-1600 Kingston ValueRAM
PSU: Enermax Liberty - 500W (ELT500AWT)

Graphic Cards :: Second Screen Always Shown After Installing Windows 8

May 9, 2013

I installed windows 8 on an Acer aspire 8320TG with AMD HD 6370 graphics card. This laptop is according to Acer not suitable for windows 8 but it worked. However, my screen is extended to the right and I can't switch this off. Since I don't have a second monitor I only notice this when my mouse sometimes gets lost or when I make a screenshot. I tried changing some settings in the "screen resolution" dialogue, without success. Am I just not finding the right settings for that or is it some compatibility-issue?
