You must buy a second video card or replace the one you have
with a card that takes in charge of two monitors.

  • Wanting to connect two monitors

    I have an HP 110-090 desktop PC.  I bought an adapter where can I plug 2 monitor cables into the one port at the rear (the blue one).  Both monitors display the screen but when I check the box so that it can extend the desktop and only show the icons on the screen 1. Both monitors are still icons, and even if the mouse will disappear off the screen, it shows more than an office.

  • Satellite L850 - is possible to connect two monitors external simultaneosly

    Hi, I have a L850-150 and I would like to know if it is possible to connect two monitors external simultaneosly, one by Hdmi and the second by Vga to enjoy an installation of three active screens (including the laptop screen). Im trying to figure out how to do without using a USB to adapter vfga or a Matrox dualhead2go.

    I want to use the outputs existing.
    Thanks in advance

    Some laptops supports a dual output: for example the Qosmio X 500 as shown here:
    http://APS2.toshiba-tro.de/KB0/TSB13033Y0000R01.htm

    But for Satellite L850 this isn t possible.

  • Can I connect two monitors to a PC Tower? cc = us

    Can I connect two monitors to a PC Tower?

    Yes, you can connect two monitors to a PC Tower... but your PC should have several outputs that are concomitant supported and your monitors must have matching entries to make it work. If your system does not support multiple and simultaneous outputs there are other options to solve this problem.

    I would like to connect two monitors to this laptop. The laptop has: 1-HDMI; 1 VGA.

    This seems to be a slam dunk, it's not. They put the VGA and HDMI so close together that I can't connect both at the same time. It's as if they force the VGA or HDMI. I am a general contractor and need two monitors if possible. I look at work photos on an all in utiizing a drawing program to produce plans of work on another.  There are 1/4 "between the VGA and HDMI imput plugs I would have been Golden, but they did not. Can anyone suggest a way to get these two monitors plugged and upward and running.

  • Dell XPS 8500 with 1 GB AMD Radeon HD 7570 - how to connect two monitors or?

    Hi, I got my Dell XPS 8500 today with the 1 GB AMD Radeon HD 7570.

    Before buying the office, I read online that the AMD Radeon HD 7570 supports Eyefinity.   Eyefinity is supposed to be capable of supporting 4 monitors using the HD 7570 map by the description here: http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/7000/7570/Pages/radeon-7570.aspx#2

    When you look at the photos of the Dell XPS 8500 online I thought that Eyefinity support was to use a display in addition to the DVI port Port.   Specifically, I thought that a monitor has been supported by DVI monitors while 4 thru two supported using an active connection to the view port using a product like the DisplayPort Accell UltraAV K087B-005 / 3 x multi-monitor DVI - D single-link adapter.

    To my surprise the graphics card came with an HDMI port, not a display port and I believe that HDMI port is a connection from one to the other, and not one of many display connection.   Maybe someone can correct me if I am wrong on this point.   But if I'm not wrong then, this would imply that, at most, the Dell XPS 8500 with the AMD Radeon HD card 7570 can support up to only 2 monitors (one DVI port) and the other HDMI port instead of 4 monitors as described on the above link.

    Others would agree with this statement?

    Note that the Dell XPS 8500 also has a VGA connector on it but I tested it using a monitor on VGA and a monitor on the DVI connection and the computer that reported as an invalid monitor config.   Probably because the VGA and DVI connections are originally the same video display as connect two monitors to display even has no logical sense.

    I have not tested the HDMI port for the second monitor again mainly because I don't have a spare HDMI cable on site at the present time.   I'll probably buy one tomorrow unless I see the comments of my post, specifying that a second monitor can be moved through the HDMI port on the AMD Radeon HD 7570 map...   I'd be surprised if that were the case (1 monitor system would be quite restrictive), but it is difficult to say with certainty, because the VGA and DVI connections at the same time have been marked by the computer as an invalid configuration...

    Any thoughts on the different ways to configure multiple monitors with the XPS 8500 and the 1 GB AMD Radeon HD 7500 is appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Doug

    If the card is not a display port is not an eyefinity card and cannot stand 3 monitors... it will be 2 monitors, no problem... I couldn't find anywhere on the site of Dell, where he says that the card was eyefinity... If you want 3 assumption of monitors you can buy a video card that supports.

  • Need a graphics card to connect two monitors.

    Is AMD CrossfireX and Nvidia SLI is the only way to connect two VGA?

    Original title: graphics card...

    It is not no need SLI or XFire to connect two monitors. SLI and XFire are mainly to
    improve performance by connecting the two cards together.
    SLI, to have the same model of card when you use Nvidia IE - two GTX560ti, but apparently, you can use different templates with XFire as long as they use the same gpu (it's because they sometimes "re-brand" a gpu a series on a new map in the following series).

    You can connect two monitors to a card and run games on two monitors, but the seam in the
    Middle is a problem, so it is really best to go three monitors or a larger screen.
    You can also run a game on one monitor and have something to open on the other.
    This can also be done with two cards of different model that are not related (Nvidia or ATI).
    or your integrated graphics, if you and a single graphics card.
    You can also use both outputs of an integrated graphics card to perform the duties of Office Basic
    two monitors.

    To use a combination of graphics card integrated on my machine, I have to set the graphic option and dedicated North Bridge in the BIOS to "Onboard" or the integrated graphics card will not work.
    Also, when you use a single monitor I have to choose one or the other in the BIOS as only won't work
    at the same time when you use a single monitor.  It may be different on your system.

    There are different ways to use two monitors and the Setup is different between Nvidia and ATI.
    I've only played with Nvidia, ATI and Intel HD4000 options, so cannot really elaborate on
    the installation options.
    It is probably better to play with the settings of your cards some time control panel to
    get an idea of what is what and try again forum of the mfg graphics card for more details.
