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.

  • 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.

    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

    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.

    • 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

    • 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.

My 65" samsung turns off when i connect my laptop

Hi Spence,
Is the TV set to "VGA"? If the TV does not detect a signal, it won't stay on, only go to a sleep mode. Make sure the cable is securely connected to the TV as well. You may go to the settings and check the power saver settings, but I don't think this has anything to do with it, I only offer it as another avenue to pursue.
Best luck

I just purchased an ACER from HSN shopping for 750.00. it is CPR AMD Athlon tm II X2- product key - MT3YW-YD8GX-6JVJH-BTJQP-26MY8. There are extremely minimal installation/setup instruction received with...

First of all, you should not post product keys on the Internet. This key is your Windows certification and should not be public. Acer has the manuals installed on the desktop for you. !. Connect all the cables. Monitor is white or blue and goes in one direction only Keyboard is flat, USB and goes into a connection that is also flat. This has an up and down so look at the end of the cable to match it. Mouse: same as the keyboard. 2. Turn on the unit and the monitor 3. The system will prompt you for a USER NAME (anything you want to put here is OK) 4. The system will guide you through the rest. Once all of the setup prompts are done, you will see your desktop. To transfer your data from one unit to the other, you need to connect the two. This can be complicated for a novice. You can use an external backup drive designed to do this or use the Windows files and transfer wizard built into the system for this. Feel free to contact me if any of this does not make sense or you want someone to talk you through it.

Need help to get my comperter to tv and i doint how

If it's a newer tv chances are it will have an SVGA input already for a monitor cable. But for things like watching movies you may have to get another graphics card that has High Definition and the HDMI type of connector. For older tv you will probably need an RF Modulator that can output the computer signal on channel 3 or 4. Or an adaptor that can change the signal and connection to "composite" and Left and Right Audio, or newer "Component" Pr - Pb - Py inputs on a tv monitor.

Red light on power up. No image on monitor. Pc fans working.

On a computer mainboard there are usually a number of connecting pins right next to one another called RESET, POWER LED, HD LED etc.
The power led often leads to the green LED next your power button to show that the juice is available and on. The cable that leads to the red LED is usually the HD LED which shows that a disk drive is being accessed.
Since the red LED is active, one of your disks is probably being accessed and that's where the problem is. Either the disk is damaged, the cable is still not inserted properly or the bios is having problems identifying one of your disk drives.

1) Power the computer off. Take the power cable out. Make sure that you are grounded (have no static charge on your body). Take all of the cables between your mainboard and your disk drives off.
2) Plug in one of your disk drives, reconnect the power cable, switch the power on and watch the monitor. If all goes well you will see that the bios has recognized the disk drive and will simply display a message that the operating system for example isn't available or no harddisk drive is present (if you connected something other than a harddisk drive).
3) repeat this process with the other drives, powering the pc completely off each time and then adding a new disk drive.
4) once you've reached the point where the red LED drive is displayed but no message is available, you've found the culprit that is keeping your pc from booting properly. Hopefully the cable has just been stuck on improperly or the cable is damaged (Check it), rather than you having disk drive damage.

Good luck!

Atrix 9006-C4 Black Midi Case 520W fitting for lcd display

There will be "headers" on the motherboard for some case fans. Look for 2/3 pin connections on the board marked "sysfn" or something similar. Any other fans you will have to fit to a spare Molex power connector from the power supply ... you can buy 2 or 3 way "splitter" cables to give you more power connections from one Molex for this purpose. BTW make sure you connect the cpu fan to the "cpu fn" header !!!!! That one is rather important :-P

JFP1 connection

Hi Yannick,
For the POWER and RESET connectors, it does not matter which way you connect the pairs. Both ways will work. The HDD LED coupler will only work if connected the right way. You can however try it both ways until the LED works. You cannot damage your board if this is connected the wrong way.
Hope this solves your problem.

Flashing screen(monitor)

Well, there's a load of things that could cause that problem. Your mainboard could be broken, or your videocard, or maybe some of the cables to your monitor doesn't work as it should, or one of the pins on a conector are bent, or the monitor is broken, etcetera, etcetera. As for the solution, when exactly does your screen start flashing? Immediately when you start up, or only when your OS starts. If that's the case, you should try starting in safe mode. (usually bound to F8). If not, you should try connecting the monitor to another PC, and see wether it works with that one. That at least eliminates some of the possibilities.

Hope this helps!
