How to extend the display of two monitors

Original title: disorders bi-ecrans

I tried to set up a second monitor to my computer. I don't have that one port, so used a double adapter cable to connect the second monitor. The computer will be in the image of the first monitor on the second, but when I go to settings to change them (I like the screen to cover the monitor2 mirror not) seems not even the second monitor is there even if it is on and working.



Here is a tutorial on how to set up dual monitors in Windows 7.

All you have to do is change the setting for several screens as extend these displays in the screen resolution window. This will allow you to move windows from one monitor to the other.

  • Portege Z30 - need to extend the display on two external displays

    Hi all

    I'm running Bloomberg and need the image to extend on the screens LCD HD complete two 24 ". Including my current laptop's built-in display, I use three panels at the same time. I can do with the Z30 1 CZ? Should I buy a docking station for that?

    Right now I use a ultrabook from another manufacturer but I'm not satisfied with the reasons that have nothing to do with the display. Currently, I use a docking station, where a screen connects by DVI and one VGA cable.

    Can I use the VGA and HDMI from laptop ports to get the same solution with the Z30?
    Best wishes

    To my knowledge the display function depends on the graphics card/chip.

    Usually, you can use a VGA or HDMI output.
    VGA (RGB) port provides analog, HDMI provides digital signals, and as far as I know, you can't use both at the same time

    However, you could buy a "hdmi adapter usb adapter allowing you to use two external monitors simultaneously.

  • 230 X: the display on two monitors with lid closed?

    My current setup:

    • ThinkPad x 230
    • Docking station series 3 ban
    • EVGA UV Plus + 39 vga box to allow setting up dual monitor

    I have the following problem, I don't know if they are related:

    First question:

    • When I close the lid on my laptop, it stops. I expect it would display Desktop on my two monitors.

    Second question:

    If I'm away from my computer, my screen become white.

    • I tried pressing the keys on my keyboard to wake up my system [does not]
    • I tried to open the lid: computer laptop screen is blank
    • So I have to shut down my computer, open the cover of the screen, and then close the lid and they press the button on my docking station to display Desktop to my two monitors?

    Do you know what causes this problem?

    Moderator edit: matched subject to content.

    1. disable stop option for "lid closed" settings within the app Lenovo Power Manager (Group of event parameters).
    2 could you be more clear. Please? Your laptop is going to sleep several minutes later (5? 15? same?) we let him? And you can not wake him normally?

  • mounting Panel - how to extend the display area

    Can someone explain how we are able to see the timeline more please.

    Mymax window size I see 0 - 51 seconds and I really want to "scroll" display area to see the past 51 seconds but I can't work out how to do it.

    I did read the help guide but found nothing.

    I use Version CS5 not 5.5

    The timeline has a maximum of 55 seconds viewing area, but you can manually enter your own parameters in the properties area. For example, you can start a transition to 65 seconds and he ended up in 100 seconds with 65 in 'delay' and 100 in the 'duration '.

  • Can satellite L550 - I extend the display?


    I was wondering if I can extend the desktop on an external monitor? I need to work on a desktop computer screen double. I know the L550 has a VGA output, however-, I have a feeling, that it can only be used to send 1 office to a different view or duplicate.

    If it makes a difference the model I want to buy is the L550 - 1 9 or L550-1CC

    Thanks :)


    Of course, you can extend the display. Simply connect an external monitor to your laptop and in the options of the display driver, you can select Office extend Windows on this monitor.

  • Satellite 1900-101 - How to adjust the display?

    I have a type of laptop Toshiba 1900-101 and have been very satisfied since I bought it 3 years ago.
    One thing I fear is, that I could 'break' the socket plastic of the screen, since I have to use force to open / close.

    Could someone tell me how to adjust the display in order to move much smoother, which screws I need to loosen, whatever...

    Thanks for your help

  • Qosmio X 500-165 - how to extend the C drive?

    Just bought the Qosmio X 500-165. Does anyone know how to extend the C drive, I get a sign that it is almost full, despite installing all my programs on the partitioned disks that I created? I need to uninstall the software installed by toshiba?

    Any suggestions gratefully received. Thank you

    Hey Buddy,

    The 500-165 X is equipped with 64 GB SSD and HDD of 750 GB. I don t know the exact partition structure but I assume that Windows is installed on the SSD which is the C drive and HARD drive is your second drive D.

    I recommend to move all files such as photos, videos, music, drive D to improve disk space on c. usually 64 GB SSD should be sufficient for all applications because Windows 7 needs only 20 GB.

    Also, try to reduce the system restore points and delete temporary folders. CCleaner can also help you to clean your system. :)

    Anyway, AFAIK your laptop is equipped with an Intel graphics card then I recommend to download the driver form Intel directly because the Web from Toshiba site displays only the Windows XP display drivers.
