I am having a Problem with my video card not letting me run an addition monitor off the vga output on the motherboard. I know it works because I can go to the bios and change it and it works but they want...


When using a PCI or PCI-E graphics card, it will disable your standard VGA output port because the up-dated graphics card and your factory VGA port require different display drivers. Usually, the drivers are conflicting and will make your system unstable and cause it to crash. In short, you can't use both at the same time. I have a Radeon HD 5450 graphics card installed on my PC and it too has disabled my standard VGA port. If you are trying to use more than one monitor, you have to install a graphics card that supports a multiple display output. The graphics card will either have 2 VGA ports, 2 DVI-D ports or 2 HDMI ports or even any combination of the 3. My card, for example, has 1 VGA, 1 DVI-D & 1 HDMI. I can run up to 3 monitors at a time via my graphics card, but I cannot run a 4th monitor from my factory VGA port. My graphics card uses ATI/AMD drivers while my VGA port requires the use of Nvidia drivers.
I hope that you find this useful.

Instructions
    • 1 Decide if you want to watch the television on your computer or use the TV as a larger monitor. If you want to view the contents of the TV on your laptop, you need a video card connected to to the computer. These cards can either be inserted through the express PCI card slot on the laptop, or via USB cable. Make sure the video tuner card supports component video.
    • 2 Connect the DVI-to-component cable into the DVI port if you want to use the TV as a large monitor for your laptop. However, if you have a VGA port, plug the VGA-to-component cable into the VGA port.
    • 3 Plug the RGB component cables into the component side of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable. If you want to watch the TV on your computer, insert the RGB cables into the TV video card.
    • 4 Plug the other end of the RGB component cables into the TV. If you are using the TV as a monitor, plug the cables into the "Component In" ports. However, if you are sending the TV signal to the computer, plug the cables into the "Component Out" port (the other end of the DVI- or VGA-to-component cable that you connected to your computer in Step 2).
    • 5 Power on the TV. If you are using the TV as a computer monitor, press the "Video" button until "Component Video" appears on the screen. If you are watching TV on your computer, launch the television viewing software that came with the TV tuner card. You can now see the contents of the TV on your computer.

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.

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.

Hi,

I think you have not connected power connector to your Radeon HD5570 .
This graphics card have 6pin power connector .
You need a 6pin power connector cable that comes with the graphics card box.

1.First connect your 6pin power connector to Graphics card.
2. Then connect other part of the cable to PSU.

Hope it will work for you.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I connected all the blue cable to monitor and computer turn monitor on and it says VGA no signal what did I do wrong?


Make sure that its connected properly and tightly. Check also if the cables have damages on the pins on both ends. If all these are properly checked, then maybe you have 2 vga outputs ( one is the integrated vga on the motherboard ( usually near the usb ports at the back ) and the other one is the vga on the pci/pcie video card that is connected to the motherboard. If this is true , then connect the cable on the vga on the pci-e video card.

Need to connect 3 monitors. Want to use either a Nvidia 290 or ATI Radeon 9250 plus the VGA port. Installing the dual-video card disables the VGA port, cannot get it back. Help!!!


Use your AGP dual-video card for two and using a PCI VGA card for the third. It is best if the same manufacturer video driver is used for both cards, as two different ones could be problematic.

3 monitors on dell vostro 200


Go to your bios and check if your bios allow that. Usually if you connect a card on the motherboard slot automatically the on board card becomes unavailable.
If your bios doesn't allow to make changes you can add another pci video card or connect some vga split signal to get the image on 3, 4, or more monitors with a single device.
