Question about Max Displays MD-219 (Gray) 19 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
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.
