Problem with TV as 2nd display after reformat

Hi, I used to have my HDTV hooked up to the computer as my secondary or primary monitor but it's not work as the same as before I reformat it. It will not let me check on the box where it says "Use This Device as the Primary Monitor" under display properties->setting tab. I have tried updating the driver but it doesn't work. When I check Extend my windows desktop onto this monitor for my TV it will not use all the space on the TV screen. Please help me solve this problem... Thank you.

It looks like you have your TV set as your primary display, you will need to open up control panel to change this. I'm assuming you're using Windows 7 (the process should be similar for Vista and XP).
Open control panel > Appearance and Personalisation > Display, and choose the "Change display settings".
There should be a button that says "Detect" or "Detect Displays". Click this button. You should see something like this:

Click the icon which corresponds to the monitor that you want to make you primary display (the boxes numbered 1 and 2 represent your two displays). Since you have yours the wrong way round, you should click box 2. If any check boxes come up saying "do you want to make this monitor your primary display, say yes. You should then have your monitors the right way round.

Hello ghinea18, sorry you can't do that because this will cause hardware conflict, that's why motherboard bios automatically disable integrated graphics if you install video card using pci express x16 slot - Nvidia GeForce 7300SE. do you know if your video card has dual vga or dual dvi connection?

You can try dual display, im not sure if this card supports dual monitors because nvidia online specs does not show full specs on 7300se series. \

Good Luck!

you'll have to drag them windowed to your 2nd monitor. Windows automatically will use your primary monitor unless you use software to control where which programs will load.

A good program to use is called Ultramon.

Second monitor no longer detected by NVIDIA GeForce 7950GT / on Vista


A quick question, Are your monitors using a DVI output from your graphics card?

When was the last time you remember them both working, and what display driver was you using?

have you tried swapping both vga/dvi cables round and booting in safe mode?

see if that helps..

On many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature, with the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop computer, it is the monitor attached to the first video out port.
Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use Display in Control Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors. Dualview can be used with docked or undocked portable computers

This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.
  1. Open Display in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side

Primary display issue


Hello,

Try going to Windows Safe Mode. You do this by pressing the F8 key repeatedly exactly after you hear your computer beep when it is rebooting. This should bring you to a screen that will have 3 Safe Modes listed, choose just plain Safe Mode by using your arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode and press enter. Once in Safe Mode, a box will come up asking you if you intended to enter Safe Mode, click Yes. You should now see your desktop, however it will look larger, and with less colors. This is normal.

If this mode did not allow you to get into windows, then reboot, press F8 like before and select Enable VGA Mode instead.

Now that you hopefully have a desktop, try this link which will take you to a video that will walk you through the process of setting up your DualView monitors. Also, note that there are some check boxes that allow you to select which monitor you want to be the primary.

I realize this video is specific Windows 2000, but the process is the same for Windows XP.

Hope this helps and Good luck!

Monitor goes blank after showing XP logo screen (black screen with the xp logo right after boot up screens)


There are different reasons why this might happen. Let's try some. 1.) Does your board have an onboard video card, cause if it does, then XP might be using that as the primary monitor. TRy plugging into the onboard video when you start up! If that works then you need to disable the onboard video.(try disabling it in bios!) if not then 2.)When booting at the select xp or recovery console, press F8. You'll get the menu with safe mode and what not. Go down to Enable VGA Mode then press enter. If that works, go to display settings and lower your resolution then restart. But usually when this happens your monitor says "Out of Range" but u can still try Well if that doesn't work, tell me more! Regards, Armando
