Split screen on the monitor

My monitor is split into two pictures. i know most monitors have settings that allows you to do this. but its split in the most inconvenience of ways. it splits horizontally and shows half of the picture and when you go into the settings theirs no way of changing it. i'm wondering if this a simple wiring problem or a component problem.

SOURCE: image set up of screen is only half of the monitor

If you v-size is already at 100% then the issue is with the picture being sent to the monitor. Based upon what kind of input you have for the monitor there is a number of different ways to fix this. I will assume you are using the monitor with a desktop computer. If this is for XP, then there is a simple fix as follows, adjusting your display properties:
Right-click on your desktop background and then click on "Properties" this will open up a new window. Select the "Settings" tab, then drag the green arrow in the "Screen Resolution" field to the desired setting. Since you have a "widescreen set-up" you more than likely have a resolution where the first number is about twice the second number...they should be close to even to have a square image (bigger numbers show more detail than smaller numbers).
Hope this helps!

Hi There and Welcome to Fixya.

Connecting a monitor to your MBP gives you more space to work on. You may want to check on the following and see if it was done properly :

  • Ensure physical connection - either mini DVI or mini DVI-VGA will work
  • Turn on the mirror mode by pressing "F7" or "Fn+F7"
  • Adjust the resolution of the monitor through the system preferences or the "Display status" in the menu bar
  • Put the macbook into "Sleep mode" to obtain the full (optimum) resolution on the AOC monitor
  • Keep the lid of the laptop open to access kybd and track pad
  • To boot the computer using the AOC monitor, turn on the computer and close the lid of the laptop at once.
Please let me know if this wont work.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Connecting 2 monitors to laptop without dock


I highly doubt that your machine will allow more than one monitor without both of the monitors being the same image. External monitors on laptops can be used to extend the display, but only by using the laptop screen as one of the two. It is possible to split VGA to duplicate images on two screens, but true dual monitors will require a DMS output or something similar, which I've never seen on a laptop.

Subtle Two Toned Split Screen Color Difference.I think I hit some button by accident. Monitor is great but now I have a split screen where the left hand side of the screen has a lighter tint than the right...


Hi. I have got the same problem, and it was very easy to solve. Monitor was LG. The problem was not in the system, it was in the monitor. I just clicked the buttons on the monitor, it was on the wrong setting that divides monitor in two colors, so if it happens to you, try checking your monitor settings, mine was set to "demonstration", half was lighter than the other one, just set it to usual or user. Keep in mind the settings are on the monitor itself, not in the windows (buttons on the monitor itself) Good luck.

Lcd screen is split howing the whole picture


Check the same in bios if it gives the same issue, it is something to do with graphics card. You may try to disconnect the monitor from the computer, it will show a message, if the message also is split then its a monitor issue.

Monitor powering up and down at random


Check monitoc cableing. This might be the cause of cable having loose connection on the back of the monitor. (I mean data cable (VGA) not power cable)
Did you have a chance to check with another monitor? Will picture appear when cable on the back is moved?

Does this happen when you logon to bios screen? REstart PC and keep pressing F2. You will see bios screen - test unit there. If that is ok then everything is fine with the monitor.
Let me know if issue is not solved by checking cable and I will provide you futher troubleshooting steps.
Thanx

Split screen


Hi!

the word split-screen usually applies to microsoft office products. Click on Windows > Split on microsoft excel. Other than that, if you are referring to actually splitting the desktop. So you can have two desktops, then use VMWARE.... try googling it. It can manage multiple desktops.

Unplug the cable from your PC, if the monitor shows a test image, the monitor is fine and the problem is with your graphic card. If you dont see nothing on-screen after unpluging the cable from the PC, then the monitor in damaged. Send it to repair.
