Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

I have one monitor connected but under the display drop down in properties it shows the following. 1. (Multiple Monitors) on VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP 2. (Default Monitor) on VIA/S3G UniChrome Pro IGP Ideally display ''1'' should be default and the resolution is all messed up as well. Its not letting me change the resolution from 640 x 480 on 1. but it lets me change between 800x600 and 1024x768 on 2. I only have one monitor connected and in 2. the checkbox ''use this device as primary'' is greyed out. In 1. both ''Use this device as the primary monitor'' and ''extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor'' are greyed out. But in 2. I am able to check the latter. I am running windows xp embedded if that helps. thanks for your help.

It seems like you have the newer system board with digital output. the machine enable you connect 2 monitors if you want.
default monitor is 2. that's why you can change the resolution and other setting.
the setting will not affect what you going to do. just leave it alone.

I tried to use my acer as a second monitor and it is connected to my GTX 550 Ti graphics card just like my Benq monitor. Whenever I turn on my computer the acer monitor shows the acer logo and then s


Incorporating a second monitor is a great Idea, I've used three to four on my workstations for many years. Setting up multiple monitors involves more than just hardware, the card manufacturer's software and operating system is involved. Since you didn't note the OS, I'll assume Win7. First, simply right click the desktop, and select "Screen Resolution" to see a page headed "Change the appearance of your displays," below which show be a graphic that shows both monitors with a number "1" and "2" on each. Arrange them by dragging and dropping them to reflect your physical arrangement. Then, select the fourth drop-down titled "Multiple" Displays" and select "Extend desktop onto this display," then click the "Apply" button followed by the "OK." button. If your hardware and drivers are set up properly, you should have everything working at this point. Your Nvidia software should have installed a control panel item that you can use to make tweaks to your system. You can also contact Nvidia technical support for more detailed, OS-specific assistance.
