SOURCE: Adding a second graphics card?

Hey there sven155, If i were you , I would get get the video card for the AGP slot. The main reason is the interface is much more efficient, and as a result the dual monitor output would be better in quality than you can get out of a PCI card or any USB connection. Another option is to have your TV Wonder plugged into the computer via AGP only when you need it, therefore you would be switching one for the other (Inconvenient). Ideally video card on AGP, TV card on the PCI.
Alternately you can make the two work, just not simultaneously, and you would have to change settings in the bios to set one or the other as your primary video output.

It's probably your pci-e slot of the motherboard problem. Try using different motherboard.

SOURCE: I have power to motherboard connected to monitor

Remove the ram and try to power on the motherboard. If the machine gives a series of long beeps when the ram is not installed, it is a good thing. This determines if the motherboard is posting.

If the beep code does not occur then the motherboard itself is bad, and short of using a multimeter to determine what component on the mobo is actually bad, a replacement would be in order.

Dual monitors t3516


Is it just like this with NO graphics card installed?

http://products.pacificgeek.com/emachines_t3516_celeron_d_3_20ghz_512mb_120gb_cdrw_dvd_xp_1013070674.php

If so, Not happening.

The I/O area is to the left side. (Input/Output area)
In this rectangular area you see;
1) PS/2 mouse port, and PS/2 keyboard port, at the top.
2) Orange port below them.
3) Black port below it.
4) Down below all of the above is the blue VGA port.

If you do not have a graphics card, your monitor is plugged into this blue VGA port.
If so you are using Integrated Graphics. Another term used is OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD.

Do Not try to use a splitter cable, and run two monitors off of this VGA port. Ain't happening.

See the four long slots at the bottom of the computer? The bottom one has the Ethernet adapter card in it?
A graphics card, (Video card. Same/same), is installed on the motherboard, and the end of it sticks out one of those 3 unoccupied slots.

Each of those slots are known as Expansion Bay Slots.
When you choose what slot you want, you remove the Expansion Slot cover, for that slot.

My sources indicate the motherboard is an Intel D101GGC motherboard,

http://www.e4allupgraders.info/dir1/motherboards/socket775/D101GGC.shtml

There are 2 white PCI slots at the bottom.
There is 1 black PCI-Express x1 slot above them.
There is a longer black PCI-Express x16 slot above it.

The PCI-Express x16 slot is for a graphics card. It is the best graphics card slot on your motherboard.
(The white PCI slots are lame. The PCI-Express x1 slot, is NOT used for a graphics card)

Suggest you use a PCI Express graphics card for your computer, and run two monitors at the same time.

From here it depends on what the two monitors are. Do you have two monitors that use a VGA cable?
Example of a VGA cable, and a VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Or do you have a monitor that uses a VGA cable, and a monitor that uses a DVI cable?
Example of DVI connectors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

Or do you have one monitor with a VGA cable, and a monitor that has a DVI cable?

Post in a Comment as to the monitor manufacturer name, and model number.
[ For example I am using an HP 2009m (20 inch widescreen), and a 26 inch RCA EN-V HDTV, as dual monitors ]

This is an example of a very economical PCI Express graphics card, that will run dual monitors,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130755

You can use a monitor with a VGA cable (Blue port), and a monitor with a DVI cable.

You can use two VGA monitors, with using a VGA to DVI adapter, for one of the monitors.
You can use two DVI monitors, with using a DVI to VGA adapter, for one of the monitors.

Already have a graphics card, and two monitors connected to it?

1) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
2) At the bottom of the list left-click on Properties.
3) In the Display Properties window, left-click on the Settings tab.

4) Left-click on the rectangular monitor icon, that has the 2 in it.
5) Go below to the left, and left-click on the empty square next to-
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor
6) Go below to the right, and left-click on Apply.
7) Go below to the left, and left-click on OK.

Your desktop screen is on your second monitor.

Need guidance past this post in a Comment.

Screen blank with white dot


Problem with;

1) Video cable:

A) Video cable connection on motherboard side is loose, and/or on back of LCD screen.

B) Video cable is damaged.

2) screen Inverter:

screen Inverter is bad.

3) LCD screen:

LCD screen is bad.

4) Graphics chipset:

Graphics chipset is bad.

Suggest you connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (Connector) on your laptop.
See if the problem is the graphics chipset, Or video cable, Or display assembly.

You didn't state what manufacturer and Model Number of laptop this is.
All I can do is state generic information.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

The VGA connector will be on the side, or back of your laptop.
For the VGA monitor you can use a CRT type monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect the external VGA monitor to the laptop.
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.

Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least 3 display options.
1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
(For an example HP's usually use the F4 key for a Display Toggle-Over key)

Display shows the same on the external VGA monitor?
You have a bad graphics chipset.

[ Some laptops have been erroneously stated as having a graphics card, when in fact they do not.
The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered directly to the motherboard.
This is Integrated Graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

There is no changeable, replaceable graphics card. Therefore the solution is motherboard replacement ]

IF, the display is good on the external monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, and/or in the Display Assembly.

After diagnosing with an external VGA monitor, post back in a Comment.
Also post the manufacturer name, and model number of the laptop.

I have a Dell Inspiron 531S, I have both two different monitor slot, does my PC support dual monitor systems?


Yes.

The area on the back of the computer, that has two ports to connect a monitor, is a Graphics Card.

It is a PCI-Express graphics card, and is plugged into a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard.
(Expansion Slot)

It has a blue VGA port, white DVI port, and black S-Video port.

The area on the upper left with a blue outline around a VGA port, is a VGA port connected directly to the motherboard. It is Integrated Graphics.

You CANNOT use Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card at the same time.

It's either use the Integrated Graphics VGA port, OR use the graphics port/s on the graphics card.
BIOS will Not support using both Integrated Graphics, and a graphics card.

HOWEVER, you can use the VGA port, and the DVI port when using two monitors.
You will be only using just the graphics card.

Example of a VGA port, (Connector), and VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Example of a DVI port, and DVI cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVI_connector


1) Whatever monitor you have that has a VGA cable, plug it into the blue VGA port on the graphics card.

(There are VGA monitors {CRT} that resemble a small TV. VGA cable is usually attached.
There are also LCD flat screens that have a VGA connector, for a VGA cable, and may also have both a VGA, and a DVI connector.

To digress for a moment;
VGA is Analog. It uses an Analog video signal.
DVI is digital. It uses a Digital video signal.

A computer naturally puts out a digital video signal. This digital signal has to be converted by the computer, into analog for an analog monitor. This slows the graphics process down. This is one reason it is best to use digital )

2) Plug a monitor with a DVI cable into the white DVI port on the graphics card.

3) Turn the monitors on.

4) Turn the Inspiron 531s on.

5) When Windows has loaded, right-click on an empty area of your desktop computer screen.
Now left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You are now looking at a small window that has two monitor icons in it.
Monitor 1 icon, and monitor 2 icon.

Monitor 1 icon is your Primary Display.
Monitor 2 icon will be for the Secondary Display you are adding.

Note how monitor 1 icon is sitting to the Left, and monitor icon 2 is sitting to the Right.
This is how your monitors are supposed to be arranged on your computer desk.

If the second monitor is on the Left on your computer desk, you need to move the icons around.
Move monitor 2 icon to the Left.

Left-click on the icon, hold the left mouse key down, and drag the monitor 2 icon over to the left side of monitor 1 icon. (All the way over, or it will snap back to where it was)

It may matter to you how your monitors are arranged. It may not. Once you read the following it may help you decide.

7) Left-click on monitor icon 2 if you have not already done so.
Go down to where it states, "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor"

8) Left-click once in the empty square, to the left of Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor.

9) Now left-click on Apply at the bottom Right corner.

10) Finally left-click on OK at the bottom Left corner.

You should now see your desktop screen on both monitors.

When using the internet on both monitors, you have to drag the screen from the Primary monitor to the Secondary monitor.

Go to the left side of the screen. Left-click right on the edge of the blue frame. Hold the left mouse key down after you click, and drag the screen across to the left.

Doesn't work?
Go to the right side, click on the blue frame, and drag the screen to the right.

This is why it may matter how the monitors are arranged on your computer desk.

It's kind of eerie your first time dragging the screen across.

You will also find out why it is best to use two similar monitors, when using dual monitors. The pixel resolution is different for both monitors, if they are different from each other.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Monitor stays in standby mode(power save)


If the monitor will not power up to give an image on the screen, try to connect it to another computer and see if it works. that will eliminate hardware failure of the monitor.

Check the vga cable connection from the computer graphics card to the monitor and make sure the connections are tight.

Then test the computer with a known working monitor, if it fails to work, the graphics card on the computer is at fault.

If replacing the graphics card does not work, try clearing the CMOS on the computer.

TRYING TO CONNECT TWO MONITORS FOR EXTENDING USE


1) You have to have a graphics card with two monitor ports.

You Cannot use one port on a graphics card, and the VGA, or DVI port on the motherboard of the computer.
BIOS will only let you use the graphics card, or the Integrated Graphics.

2) Using a 'splitter' cable results in very bad graphics on two monitors, or no graphics at all.

3) With a graphics card installed that has two monitor ports on it, connect the monitors to the graphics card.

[ The graphics card can have a VGA port, and a DVI port. Or the graphics card can have two DVI ports.

VGA = Video Graphics Array
Photo of a VGA port,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SVGA_port.jpg

Photo of a VGA cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vga-cable.jpg

DVI = Digital Visual Interface

Information about DVI showing a DVI cable, and connector examples for the DVI port on a graphics card,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface ]


4) Turn the two monitors on once they are connected to the graphics card.
Turn on the computer.

5) Windows loaded, right-click on an empty area of the desktop screen.

6) In the list go to the bottom, and click on Properties

7) Click on the Settings tab.

8) You will see two monitor icons.
One icon has a square with a 1 in it.
The other icon has a square with a 2 in it.

The 1 monitor icon is used to represent your Primary monitor.
The one you have been using.
As you can see the 1 monitor icon is sitting to the Left.
This is how your Primary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

The 2 monitor icon is used to represent your Secondary monitor.
The one you are going to add.
As you can see the 2 monitor icon is sitting to the Right.
This is how your Secondary monitor should be sitting on your computer desk.

Left-click on the 2 monitor icon.
Go below in the Display Properties window, and view where it states -

Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

There is an empty square to the left of it.
Left-click in the empty square.

Now go below to the Right, and click on - Apply
Finally go below to the Left, and click on - OK

Your desktop screen will now be on your Secondary monitor.

Whatever is on your Primary monitor, has to be drug over to the Secondary monitor, when you are on the internet, or a program. (Such as a game)

Go to the blue frame on the Left side of the Windows screen.
When your cursor turns into a double-headed arrow STOP.

You'll find it's a little tricky your first time, keeping your cursor into the position where it turns into a double-headed arrow.
With the cursor in a double-headed arrow, press the left mouse button down, hold it down.
Drag the monitor screen to the Left.

Keep dragging until the window on your Primary monitor is on your Secondary monitor.
It's helpful you'll find to have two of the same size monitors.

I have found occasion where when using the internet on two monitors, that I had to Restore Down the screen, THEN drag it over to the Secondary monitor screen.

(Icons at the top right of the monitor screen.
Minimize ( - ), .......Restore Down/Maximize, ...........Red X

Then I Maximized the screen

How to add second monitor to asus cg5270?


The Asus Essentio CG5270 is a desktop computer, so I see it was placed in the wrong category. No prob!

Certain selected models of the Essentio CG5270 come with a graphics card. If you have this graphics card, you can use two monitors at the same time. (Dual monitors)

If you do Not have one of the selected models with a graphics card, you have to purchase, and install a graphics card.
You can purchase a decent graphics card that has dual DVI ports, and is relatively inexpensive.

Looking at the back of your computer,

1) View the purple PS/2 port. The port where you can plug in either a Keyboard, or a Mouse.

Come straight down to the blue VGA connector. This port is to connect a VGA monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or an PCD monitor that has a VGA cable.
(Flat screen monitor)

Look to the immediate right of the blue VGA connector. This white port is a DVI connector.
You can connect an LCD monitor to it that has a DVI cable.

This two ports are Onboard graphics ports. (On the motherBoard)

You Cannot connect a monitor at the same time to these ports.
BIOS will only recognize one port.

You have to have a graphics card also.

You can connect two monitors to a graphics card,
IF, it has two graphics ports. For this model it looks like the best they are offering, for connecting two monitors is a DVI port, and a VGA port.

You Cannot hook a monitor up to the Onboard graphics port, and to the graphics card port.

BIOS will only recognize Onboard, or a graphics card. It won't do both.

IF, you have a graphics card.

There are four horizontal slots, on the bottom of the computer tower. IF, you have a graphics card it is usually in the second slot down.

It - Should have a white DVI port on the left, and a blue VGA port on the right.


Again as stated above, you can purchase a graphics card that has two, (Dual) DVI ports on it. Then connect two monitors to the graphics card.

(Digital Visual Interface:
A DVI-I female port is White in color, and has 3 rows of 8 holes. To the right of the holes is a metal bar, shaped like a Plus Sign.
{ + }
There is a hole in each of the four corners, of the Plus Sign.
Four holes in total.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

VGA:
The VGA female port is usually Blue in color.
There are 3 rows of 5 holes. They are staggered.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

If you wish you can plug 1 monitor into the VGA port on a graphics card, and the 2nd monitor into the DVI port on the graphics card.

They also make a Male DVI to Female VGA adapter plug. Has Male DVI pins, and female VGA socket holes.

This is for a monitor that has a VGA cable, and you are adapting it to plug into a DVI port on the graphics card.
Useful if you have two monitors with a VGA cable.

(They also make a Female DVI to Male VGA adapter. Make sure what you want, and what you are purchasing)

NOW, (Not shouting),

The following applied to Windows XP. I see the Essentio CG5270 comes with Windows Vista.
See if the following will crossover to Vista.

1) You have two monitors plugged into your graphics card. Monitors are On.

2) Computer is turned on next. Windows loads up.

3) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.

4) In the small menu that comes up, go to the bottom, and left-click on Properties.

5) In the small Display Properties window that comes up, left-click on the Settings tab.

6) You will see a large blue rectangle with the number 1 in it. This is your Primary monitor icon.
This is your main monitor.

You will see a smaller rectangle in the background, and it will be 'ghosted' out. This is your Secondary monitor icon. This is the second monitor you hooked up.

Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon.

7) The Secondary monitor icon will 'light up'.

NOW,
IF, your Primary monitor is sitting in front of you, and your Secondary monitor is sitting on the Right, it's okay.

IF, your Secondary monitor is on the Left, you need to make a change.
Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon, hold the mouse button down, and drag it over to the Left side of the Primary monitor icon.

Why?
Because you need to have those icons sitting the same way, as your two monitors are sitting on your computer desk.
More will be revealed as you read on.

8) Go to the bottom of this window. You will see -
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor,
and a square box to the left of it.

Left-click in the middle of that square box.
Go to the bottom right, and left-click on Apply.
Go to the left of Apply, and left-click on OK.

Bling! Your second monitor has your desktop on it!

When you go online with your computer using dual monitors. Your Primary monitor will have the what you see online. Your Secondary monitor won't.

Go all the way to the Left side of your monitor screen, with your mouse cursor.
Left-click, and hold the mouse button down. Drag your mouse to the Left.

You should see what you're seeing on the Primary monitor, being dragged over to your Secondary monitor.

No?

Then go to the Right side of your Primary monitor screen, and drag it the other way.

Well... try un-plugging the VGA cable... ie., the monitor cable behind the tower...... if u get a message on screen saying No VGA Input... can confirm there is no issues with the monitor...

if you are using graphic card in computer unplug that and connect the VGA cable to normal display card came along with the computer and try...

or if you have another monitor... u can try connecting that to the tower which is not sending the signal to monitor and try....

even then you get the same problem... get an new graphic card... (if you dont have other monitor try with new graphic card)
