XP8500 Radeon 7770: Multi Monitor Help (more) - New Post

As requested by osprey4 it's a new post asking the same question

I have a 8500 XPS with 2 GB AMD Radeon HD video card 7770.  I want three monitors VGA to the fastener.  What would be the best configuration?

Thank you.

You must start with a monitor connected to the video card that you did, DVI - i > VGA.

Restart, and then press F2 before Windows starts to load to open the BIOS Setup. Use the arrow keys to navigate and find/highlight the Intel Multi display option. Press Enter to select and look in the right for an option panel to enable (it is disabled by default). Save changes and exit and let it restart.

Then normally stop and connect the second VGA monitor to the integrated VGA adapter and reboot again. It's supposed to allow the VGA port built into work along side a video card, when you use Win 7 and have an Intel 'third generation '.

DP and HDMI are purely digital signals. You need a dongle assets such as the one I linked above to convert the digital signal into an analog VGA signal. Most of the adapters are passive and only change the cable connector of DP in one that plugs into a VGA port, but a passive adapter is not to convert the digital signal into analog signal. (BTW: check the box, Dell may have given you a RFP > VGA dongle active with the system.)

A divider wil does not support 2 independent monitors on a single port. All you can see is the exact same window on both screens.

I hope this helps...

  • XP8500 Radeon OUTPUTS 7770

    I just bought a 8500 XPS with the Radeon 7770 2 GB video card.  It has only 1 DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 display port.  I thought that these cards had 2 mini DP and if not, it shouldn't have a VGA output?  In addition, edge of VGA output is covered.  Can I remove this and always use it or not?

    Thank you!


    You can certainly do.
    The monitor 19 '' can certainly be connected using the converter DVI VGA and the U2412M with a display port cable.
    That should work just fine.

  • How to avoid mistakes in a Multi - monitor configuration?


    I want to use Photoshop CS6 on a Multi - installation of the monitor, using multi-monitor iGPU + system GPU to 4 monitors.

    Preiously, I used Photoshop on a Multi - installation of the monitor without using iGPU multi-monitor.

    And Photoshop has worked well.

    However, when I tried to use 1 monitor more, my GPU supports only 3 monitors.

    Then I activated the iGPU multi-monitor function. It supports more than 2 monitors.

    At first, it worked. But once I used "Free transform", "Transform", or something like these tools, Photoshop hang!

    I could not understand the reason why these mistakes that is happened.

    I need ways to avoid these mistakes.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for posting to this discussion.

    Finally, I brok thanks to this problem.

    I show you how, in the case where you are facing this problem.

    How to solve this problem is simple, "buy a new GPU".

    But, there are 1 important point, you should buy a same bland GPU.

    In my case, I have RADEON HD5670 of SAPPHIRE, and I bought RADEON HD 6450 of SAPPHIRE.

    I think Photoshop GPUsniffer was confused about GPU driver.

    Because there are 2 drivers - Radeon and Intel Graphics - exist.

    This is why Photoshop hang up.

    For your reference,.

    Best regards.

  • Multi-monitor 7 VMWare Fusion is improved from 6?

    Hello VMWare,

    Currently if you google "VMware Fusion 7 multi-monitor Support" this thread is the best result:

    https://communities.VMware.com/thread/458878?start=0 & tstart = 0

    In this thread, the top answer is a VMWare employee is studying ways to improve multi-monitor support VMWare Fusion. It's been a year, and you have now unlocked a new major version, to what you ask me to pay to upgrade.  I guess that these issues have been addressed, but I see no reference to improvements in this regard on the VMWare Fusion 7 product pages.

    Can you please address the following two questions, which are massive trouble when using Fusion 6 (and I want to emphasize, nor issue seems to affect your competing product Parallels):

    1. If you have more than two monitors (three for example), can you use Fusion 7 full screen but use only 2 screens instead of the 3? In fusion 6, you can use one or ALL, I really hope that this behavior is changed.
    2. When you use a display fullscreen VM on several monitors with the new behavior of multiscreen fullscreen introduced in Mavericks, can you change the space of one of your monitors away from the virtual machine and then on another monitor always displays the virtual machine, interact with the virtual machine without the spaces on your other monitors to return to space the VM?

    If you can confirm that the issues have been addressed, I fortunately modernize today.  If not, you clearly that this support is a reason some not a priority for VMWare and I go to Parallels, after buying the latest 3 versions of VMWare and be a happy customer otherwise.

    Thank you for your answer!

    They do not react because the answer is that they did not have * nothing * to improve their software in this regard.

    You better buy Parallels, making these two things well.  Even if the product windows VMWare offers this kind of behavior of multi-monitor, they are apparently not interested in doing the same thing on their OS X product.  I'm not interested in waiting around for them to recognize it as a priority, so I switched to Parallels.

  • What is the purpose for TMM (Microsoft transient multi-monitor Manager) in Task Scheduler?

    I need some information regarding the purpose and the use of a Scheduler application named TMM or Microsoft transient multi-monitor Manager, please.  Judging by the name of this task, I guess that it is necessary for this application runs when more than one monitor is connected to a computer.  Am I correct in this assumption?

    Because I only have one computer and it has never been more than one monitor hooked up to my computer, do I really have transient multi-monitor Manager Microsoft runs all the time?  If this application does not need to run in my computer, is - it normal that TMM is disabled?

  • How to connect an external monitor to a new Dell XPS 13?

    We had two new Dell XPS 13 for users and there seems not to be any video ports as on previous models.  It runs Windows 10 Professional and has a resolution of the internal display of 1920 x 1080.  Looks like there are 2 super speed USB 3.0 ports and possibly a (thunderbolt)? the port?

    I've heard of USB - C, so I don't know if it's that this port a port on the left side, or if his crush.  I googled thunderbolt to hdmi adapter and all the images that I find it always shows a port mini display on one end despite descriptions saying Thunderbolt.

    So what is the best way to get HDMI out on this laptop?

    I just bought an XPS 2016 13 9350 and now know that the only way to connect no matter what monitor what so ever needs a dell docking station or an adapter.  IT HAS NO CABLE THAT CAN BE USED ONLY TO CONNECT THIS LAPTOP TO A MONITOR.

    I am working in three offices and the adapter, I had lasted 2 weeks before burning and it was the second.  20% of the forum posters have the same problem using a doc $200 now.  It is $600 for 3 offices, I have been working in if I don't want to carry a doc that is heavier than the laptop!

    Who, in their right mind to product management Dell would do a lightweight laptop that had no option to connect a monitor with just a cable.  Why they could not also include a DP or HDMI port or stay until there was a cable is nuts.  It STINKS for us but ideal for Dell they can now sell docs a lot more than ever before.

    I asked to return the laptop and get a surface or a lenovo and our IT group is frantically looking at them with more new employees coming on board. No cases were going docs $ 200 dozen. We have been dedicated company dell, but not anymore.

  • Cannot create more new folders in Windows 7

    Well this problem starts just today after the installation and uninstallation of some free Antivirus software I try for the first time. Before that, I was about to install a new burning program and I decided to create a manual restore first, point in case something went wrong. After you install Microsoft Security Essentials, I'm not too sure if that caused the problem, but that's when I noticed that I couldn't create more new folders when I click the button new folder in Explorer or when I right click and select new, there was no new folder option. I have a feeling this could very likely be a registry problem, but I have almost no idea how to manually re-enable it in the registry. There were a few solutions lying around and showing some tips on changing the context Menu, but whenever I tried to change the registry, I get an error saying that the changes may not be saved. I even download the ShellEX utility but noted the option new folder that if she was clearly not or just was not working as it should. I'll try to use the system restore to reload the manual restore point I had created, which I was when I was pretty sure that everythng was working fine. I hope that that would solve my problem, because there is not more updates update critical for me to install just might solve the problem. I hope that someone who has an alternative solution to what I do can provide details in response to this. Your help would be very appreciated.

  • See 4.5 true multi-monitor with RDP7?

    I read this in the guide of the administrator on the page 17: ' Microsoft RDP provides the following features: you can use more than one monitor in span mode '

    and this page 21:

    In a real session of multiple monitors, monitors can have sizes and different resolutions, and a monitor can be

    has rotated. If you enlarge within an application window, the window expands to the full-screen only the monitor

    that contains it.

    This feature has the following limitations:

    n the maximum number of monitors that lets you view a desktop is 10 If you are using the RDP Protocol

    view the Protocol and 4 If you are using PCoIP.

    n If you are using the Microsoft RDP display protocol, you must have Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection (RDC)

    version 6.0 or later installed in the desktop view.

    I'm not completely sure if I read this right, but it seems that true multimonitor is NOT available with RDP. Even if Windows 7 and the last DRC have no problem with that at all. Can someone confirm (or reject if all goes well) that this is the case. I really prefer to use RDP, but I need the true multi-monitor.

    Kind regards


    You need on the client, you connect from version 7.  Version 7 comes with Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2.  You can download version 7 for XP and Vista.

    I wish version Mac was up to 7 and I wish THAT WYSE would improve their RDP to 7.

  • Multi-monitor (PCoIP) and Windows 7


    We try to test 2 months see 4 but one of the problems is that when trying to connect to a virtual from Windows 7 computer in mode multiscreen we get just black 2 screens and after a few seconds that it disconnects and View Client closes.

    Anyone who manages to get multi-screen working for Windows 7 clients? I tried to increase the memory to 128 MB vram.

    Multimonitor works without any problem when you connect to a Windows XP client.

    Thanks in advance,


    I had exactly the same problem and it is resolved.  You can read the complete demo that I did here:


    However, the quick answer is: uninstall vmware tools, uninstall agent from view of the guest operating system.  Reinstall the tools then agent.  See if you can connect to the base image (we're not done linked clones).  Also, everything I care at this point is that you get a single monitor to work.

    Once you can connect to Windows 7 with a single monitor, go into Device Manager to uninstall your graphics driver and replace this drive with the driver found SVGA C:\program files\common files\vmware\drivers do not use the pilot of MCDA.  With the SVGA driver in place, you will get multi-monitor support.  Also it will fix the annoying UAC question and issues of screen saver.

    A problem with this solution is that it is not supported and has experienced problems with BSOD, but you get a multi-monitor VM work.  Once you have all that in place, go ahead and do your linked clone stuff.
