How do I make my 2nd monitor always display my start screen / metro screen?

Graphic Cards :: Thunderbolt To Display Port Monitor - GTX 765m

Jan 9, 2014

I am on a laptop with a gtx 765m. I am trying to connect a thunderbolt port to a display port monitor. My understanding is that thunderbolt is backwards compatible with display port. But, for the life of me I can not get it to work.

I am using a minidisplay port -> display port cord.

I have ended up hooking the monitor up with an hdmi cord for now. FYI the monitor is a 2560x1440 monitor if that matters.

Graphic Cards :: How To Get Multiple Monitor Support Via Display Port

Jan 22, 2013

In a few weeks (I can't wait! ) I will replace my laptop with the Surface Pro.

Right now, though, I have my laptop connected to two monitors: One via VGA and other via DVI. I'm running Windows 8 Pro x64, so this all works great.

So the big question is whether it is possible to have multi-monitor support via the one-and-only DisplayPort that is on the Surface Pro? If so, what--if any--additional hardware would I need?

When I'm docked at home and using my Surface Pro as laptop, I really need to keep the functionality of using both external monitors (one is 31" and the other 29"). I would really hate to go back to only being able to use one.

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?

Setup Installation :: Windows 8 - Current Input Timing Isn't Supported By Monitor Display?

Jul 6, 2014

Normally, I'm used to install Windows 8.1 by running setup.exe from Windows Explorer(not by boot DVD/Flash Drive). But yesterday when I tried to install it by a boot dvd, I faced a problem which's solution I couldn't find in google, when I press any key after the message appears(Press any key to boot from cd/dvd), the setup loads and my display goes black and shows a message "The current input timing isn't supported by the monitor display. change your input timing tp 1280x1024@60Hz or any other monitor listed timing as per the monitor applications."

I needed to restart the PC by the button in the CPU and couldn't install Windows.

Note : My monitor's manufacturer is Dell

Graphic Cards :: Asus N56vz Displaying Phantom Monitor In Display Options

Mar 10, 2014

I recently broke the screen to my asus n56vz. I ended up removing the whole top panel and removing the inverter cord.

I plugged in a external monitor and it worked fine at first. When i restarted i noticed that it starting running hotter and displayed a second option on a 768p monitor. My 1080 aoc was made the main display seen though its not the first monitor its second.

I tried to delete or disable the second monitor but i could not. What should i do?

I used to have 33c temps idle and not its 50c. It used to display only the external monitor. Now it displays 2 and the 2 is my main.

I dont have any recovery or 8.1 disks... I tried a refresh and it said "missing files" so i cant even do that...

New Metro Start Menu On 2nd Monitor

Nov 3, 2012

I have 2 monitors and am wondering if there is some way to make it so that when I bring up the new metro start menu on my 2nd monitor that I can make it stick there?

As it is now, if I open the new menu on my 2nd monitor and then go back to what ever program that I have open on my first monitor (like chrome or I.E. etc) then the start menu will close from my 2nd monitor.

I'd like to make it where it stays open on my 2nd monitor. Is this somehow possible?

Display Resolution Lower After 8.1 Upgrade (Metro UI)

Apr 18, 2014

After the upgrade of 8.1 I got display issues because the resolution of Windows Apps (Metro UI, Internet Explorer, Login Page ...) has become lower than the resolution of windows. In my setting it is set at maximum level.

Here you can see the problem (and you can see that resolution of Chrome is at its normal level whereas resolution of IE is at a low level) : [URL] .....

Metro Apps Open By Default On Center Monitor?

Sep 15, 2014

I'm having a little issue with my Screen Setup and I was wondering if there's a fix to that.

I recently upgraded from to Photoshop CC after seeing a YouTube Video with someone working on the same Wacom Cintiq 24HD Touch I have using the newly introduced Experimental Touch features of PS CC.

Turns out it didn't worked THAT well on mine.

Panning, Zooming and Rotation in PS CC is totally screwed like the axis of them being totally off or outside my Screen and thus causing my Workspace to vanish off screen which is REALLY annoying.

Working with the Issue for a while I noticed that the issue could be related to me using multiple Monitors unlike the Video which only used one and the Cintiq with the Touch Interface NOT being either the center or rather the Main Monitor of the Setup.

Having the Cintiq not as the Main Monitor causes Photoshop CC to relocate the Rotational, Zoom and Move Axis to the Main Monitor and thus cause this agonizing behavior.With the Cintiq now set as the Main Monitor every Metro App I use ( including the Start Screen ) opens out of my normal Field of View.Is there a setting that allows me to keep the Cintiq ( 2 ) to be the Main Monitor because of Photoshop while having Metro Apps open by default on the Center Monitor ( 1 ) ?

I do know that hitting the Windows button in the Task bar will open the Start Screen on the screen it was hit and all Metro Apps opened from there will also open on the now active screen but working like this is kind of cumbersome as I prefer to use a Mouse button ( or the Keyboard Windows Key ) with the Windows Key assigned and there it just doesn't work like I want.

Browsers/Mail :: IE10 Metro App Not Available In Metro Start Screen?

Aug 30, 2013

IE Metro tile is missing from my metro start screen. It's not in the 'all apps' list either. when I go to program default, it is set as the default browser. I went through all the checks in the tutorial on here, but at best, I can only get the desktop IE tile to pin to start. I would rather have the metro version tile on my start.

Tablets :: Metro Style OnScreen Keyboard Size And Monitor Selection

Oct 6, 2013

As a Multi-Monitor user I'm currently plagues with 3 Problems concerning the Metro Style OnScreenKeyboard.

1. For most of the time it appears on the wrong Monitor - Not the one with touch capability thus forcing me to manually move it over to the right screen which, at best, is annoying.

It appears it's kind of bound to where the Start Screen currently resides but it would be a lot more useful if it could be tied to one screen.

2. On 2 of my Screens it takes up about - the screen space limiting their usefulness while on my other 2 about - which is more desireable - what triggers this behavior and how can I control it?

3. Is there an option to force the OSK to keep the last setting of which Keyboard I've used? It keeps reverting to the simple one when I'd like to use the Advanced one.

All Metro Settings Crash (Account - Display) Apps Work Fine

Mar 3, 2014

Running Windows 8.1. Have admittedly modified it quite heavily but what I have screwed up.

Pretty much, any apps which have the purple wheel splash screen do not load (presumably crash). Normal windows settings work fine. Windows applications and Metro apps works with no hitches (I have none downloaded but default Music, Games all start with no issues).

Display Too Big For Screen In Windows 8

Oct 26, 2012

So I upgraded to Windows 8 today and finally finished all the installations only to find that using a 1920x1080 resolution means that the display is too big for my screen (a 32" Samsung full HD TV). The screen is cropped by about a half a CM all the way around. I had to revert to a 1776x1000 resolution for the display to fit properly on the screen but would much rather use the highest possible setting but I cannot seem to fix the problem.

I am running 64-bit and have updated all display drivers and completed windows updates. My GPU is an ATI Radeon HD 5800 series.

Screen Display Gets Dimmer (More Orange)

Aug 17, 2014

I just recently purchased the ASUS ROG G750JM-DS71. I noticed that I can't seem to the get the display to be in full brightness. For example when booting it up, the brightness seems much higher, and after a few seconds at the desktop the screen would suddenly get darker. The brightness is indeed all the way up, and my laptop is plugged in. BTW, it actually looks more orange instead dimmer, like the there is much less blue emitted light. how I can get rid of this setting or what could be causing this? The display does indeed change while at the desktop, so I know this isn't the highest brightness.
