Multiple monitors overview On many portable computers and some desktop computers (those with two video ports on one video card), you can expand your display to a second monitor by using Dualview. Dualview is very similar to the multiple monitor feature, with the exception that you cannot select the primary display. On a portable computer, the primary monitor is always the LCD display screen. On a desktop computer, it is the monitor attached to the first video out port.
Once you attach the second monitor and turn on your computer, use Display in Control Panel to configure your settings, just as you do with multiple monitors. Dualview can be used with docked or undocked portable computers.

Arrange multiple monitors To arrange multiple monitors
This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one computer.

  1. Open connecting 2 monitor and tv - shortcutcold.gifDisplay in Control Panel.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Identify to display a large number on each of your monitors, showing which monitor corresponds with each icon.
  3. Click the monitor icons and drag them to positions that represent how you want to move items from one monitor to another, and then click OK or Apply to view changes.
note.gif Notes
  • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
  • The icon positions determine how you move items from one monitor to another. For example, if you are using two monitors and you want to move items from one monitor to the other by dragging left and right, place the icons side by side. To move items between monitors by dragging up and down, place the icons one above the other. The icon positions do not have to correspond to the physical positions of the monitors. You can place the icons one above the other even though your monitors are side by side.

    To view the

    This procedure applies when two or more monitors are connected to one

    1. Open Display in Control Panel.

    2. On the Settings tab, click the monitor icon that
      represents the monitor you want to use in addition to your primary monitor.

    3. Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box.

    Notes


    • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and
      then double-click Display.


    • Selecting the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box
      allows you to drag items across your screen onto alternate monitors.
      Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.

    Install additional monitors


    To install
    additional monitors



    1. Turn off your computer.

    2. Insert your additional Peripheral Component Interconnect (PCI) or
      Accelerated Graphics Port (AGP) video adapter into an available
      slot.

    3. Plug your additional monitor into the card.

    4. Turn on your computer. Windows will detect the new video
      adapter and install the appropriate drivers.

    5. Open Display in Control Panel.

    6. On the Settings tab, click the monitor icon that
      represents the monitor you want to use in addition to your primary monitor.

    7. Select the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box,
      and then click Apply or OK.
      If the check box is not displayed on your computer, it may be because your
      video adapter does not support multiple monitors. See Notes for information about
      compatible hardware.

    Notes


    • To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, and
      then double-click Display.


    • Selecting the Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor check box
      allows you to drag items across your screen onto alternate monitors.
      Or, you can resize a window to stretch it across more than one monitor.


    • To use the multiple
      monitor support feature, you need a PCI or AGP video adapter for each
      monitor. If you
      have an onboard video adapter (one that is not a plug-in card but is part of the
      motherboard) that you want to
      use as part of a multiple-monitor configuration, it must be set as VGA.
      To find hardware that is supported by Windows operating systems, visit
      the Windows Catalog on the Microsoft Web
      site.


    • If your computer doesn't recognize your second monitor, click Display Troubleshooter for
      more information.

    • The operating system always needs a VGA device. The computer's BIOS or EFI
      detects the VGA device based on slot order, unless the BIOS or EFI offers an
      option for choosing which device is to be treated as the VGA device.

    • The VGA device cannot be stopped, which is an important consideration for
      docking units.

    • The monitor
      that is designated as the primary monitor will display the logon dialog box when you start
      your computer. In addition, most programs will display windows on the primary
      monitor when you
      initially open them.

    • If you are using Dualview, skip steps 2 and 3 above. Just plug your second
      monitor into the
      video out port on your portable computer, or into the second video out port on
      your desktop computer. When you turn on your computer, it should recognize the
      second monitor.
      Follow steps 5 through 7 to extend your display to the second monitor. If the second
      monitor is not
      shown on the Settings tab, you might need to update your display driver.

After 2 seconds my monitor HP w1907v is switching off itself and there's no way to bring it back to life again. If i switch off and on again the monitor shows images for 2 seconds and then dies. I...


Well the monitor obviously works, so I see no reason to open the case on the monitor especially because there are no user serviceable parts within the case. my sugestion is to try the monitor on another PC if that yeilds the same results then I am wrong and the problem lies with the monitor. I believe the are two types of connections for this monitor shane_barnha_2.jpg VGA and DVI shane_barnha_0.png
Next step is to try the one that you have not tried yet if that fixes it then the problem lies in the output conection on the back of PC the input connection on bottom of monitor or the cable itself. If there isn't a second connection like I think then the next option would be to try another monitor, which if you do not have available can be achieved by using most new flat screen TV's If you have a TV With the same conection Just move the PC or TV close enough to try, Use your remote to change TV input to PC then turn TV off connect cable turn TV on and start up your PC if this works you will need to have your monitor repaired or replaced.

Thumbs Up if helpful, Feedback is Appreciated!!!
Good Luck!!!

Hooking up sony tv to HP laptop


Do you have a HDMI jack on your TV? it looks just like the blue/graphics/monitor jack on your laptop. If so use it to connect and you should be able to use your tv as a monitor. (if you tv came with the HDMI cable?, if not you can purchase one ez enough from Radio Shack)

Check your users manual for directions on how to use the remote to get it to that function. My Hansphree TV I have to put it on AUX to use my laptop hooked to it and see my TV as my lappy monitor.

Hope this helps you and others! Good Luck.

Connecting laptop to tv


1. If your tv has a PC input, use a vga cable, from any normal computer monitor.

2. If you use those HD connectors, match them to the correct colour coded inputs on the tv.

In each case, do all the connecting with the computer POWERED OFF. Then when connected, boot the computer, and allow Windows to auto-detect the 'new monitor', as it will 'see' it.

Then you shoud right click on your desktop, choose properties, and goto 'settings'. From there you will see monitors 1 and 2. click on the new monitor and 'enable' it.

You also have the option of 'extending' windows to the second monitor, as well as making this your 'default monitor'. Experiment to see what best suits your needs,

Erik.
