Nvidia Vetro Geforce 6800GT on E510? Need help setting up max displays MD 219 dual displays

Hi all,

Hi all, I recently upgraded my video card to the Nvidia Vetro Geforce 6800GT from the stock Radeon X300 on my E510. I'm trying to run dual monitors on this system, however, my computer isn't picking up the second monitor; It does not give me the option to stretch the screen. I've installed and reinstalled the drivers and still no go. To be more specific, I have the Max Displays MD - 219 but I can't seem to get both monitors to come on at the same time. These monitors are connected and share a single power source. II've tried using two seperate computers to turn on both monitors simultaneously and that has worked, so it seems both monitors do power on and work properly.

I've tried hooking up just the right monitor and my old dell monitor to the card and it works fine with the extend desktop in properties/settings, but for some reason the left monitor just won't get detected (it gets stuck on a screen that says Self Diagnostics, Digital, No Signal, Check Signal Cable).

I tried using a Y splitter with the Left and right monitor, and both left and right displays come on with the same image, so from my understanding it's able to turn on and have an image. I've also unplugged the right panel when it was working, then plugged in the left one and that seemed to make the left one work; however, when I plug in the right panel afterwards they both go out. The Card seems to work perfectly fine as I can run both my old dell monitor and the right monitor as an extended desktop.

Does anyone have any ideas at all what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Easy Set Package software is not functional at the LG E2250

I have the same problem. I wrote to LG and here is what they responded:
Easy Set requires proper communication between the software and the monitor in order to work properly. To do this it has to go through Windows and the graphics driver. Not every setup is going to support this. If the dual web mode cannot “see” a monitor it supports, it will be grayed out.

I have an nVidia FX 5500 and latest driver.
So it seams I need a PC upgrade.

Monitor displays message "Out of Range" when trying to set the resolution to 1600x1200 I have NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M video card with native NVIDIA driver installed

The max resolution to your monitor is 1680x1050. The video card can't help you with the resolution if the monitor doesn't support it.

Starlogic 17'' as dual display not clear

Check and see if your NVIDIA drivers are up to date. Then try changing the resolution on your laptop to match the native resolution on the monitor and see if it works. If it does then you will need to look for the option to set custom resolutions on each monitor so that you can have both devices working at diferent resolutions if 1 is wide screen and the other is not.

Let me know if this does not work and you need more help.

Microphone does not seem to be working

The microphone connector is on the rear of the monitor, and you need to connect it to your computer's microphone input jack. The cable is the same kind you would use to connect the audio output jack to the input on a set of computer speakers. Once the microphone is plugged in it works just like any standard microphone. No special drivers are needed for the monitor, but you do need to be sure that the proper drivers for your computer's sound devices have been installed.

Graphics card problems

Hi Jflynn,

I'm not convinced that this is an issue with a driver, but I have to ask whether you've downloaded the latest drivers for the nVidia card.

If not, go here to download them and see if that helps.

Video Problems


Maybe you need to install the correct driver of your video card. But first update your motherboard driver, if you have CD/DVD utilities enlclosed in your computer from the vendor then you should reinstall that in series installation. after that installation restart the system and then install the updated driver or the current CD/DVD utilities of your geforce 8600 GT and again restart the system after installation. and then set the monitor display to the required display of your games.

May this help, best regards, melnavz
