Question about Computers & Internet

Video cards We are a church and we purchased a Dell computer built to run dual monitors for our projectors in the sancturary about 3 years ago.Out of the box we loaded our software and it worked perfectly. The desktop monitor shows the preview panel and the second vga goes to the projector and shows a different picture. We just opened a new location and again bought a Dell and told them we needed the ablility to run 2 independent monitors( One desktop, the other projector). When the computer got here we loaded the software up and was unable to get both the projector and desktop monitor to run in dualview. They sent us a new nividia ge force 7600 gs video card and we have installed it and still not able to view one thing on desktop and something else on projector. Does anyone know if this card will do what we need it too or do we need a different card? Could anyone help me with this issue? Thanks, Paul302-218-8833

Your card certainly will support two monitors. It has two connectors and they are accessed by the nVidia software, available from the manufacturer's website. The link to find the latest version is below. You need to select '7 Series' in the second pull-down menu, and in the third you'll have to select your operating system. The software is a bit confusing, but I have the same video card in my computer, so if you need further help, please post your question / results by reply to this conversation.

    If you like, we can set a time, and I'll call you (my long distance is free) to talk you through setting up the PC. Please let me know.

You should have 2 video ports on the 8400 GS card. One is the standard 15 pin VGA port and the other is the DVI port. You should be able to use these ports on the card to connect dual monitors. If you use the video port integrated on the motherboard you will bypass the 8400 GS card. Here's a link from Microsoft about running dual displays:

The other issue is whether your monitors are DVI compatible.

If the problems happens on another computer then call dell to get the problem resolved. You could also go into the system setup by pressing F2 when the computer loads up and see if it happens in their, or you can also put the known good monitor in your system and it you get the same problem the problem is with the computer and the issue is either a hardware or software issue. If the problem happens in the system setup or during the diagnostics then the issue is hardware. Please call dell tech support if you find out the issue is points to the monitor and we would be glad to replace the monitor, if the monitor is not tied to the system(not in the order details or was purchased later) then the monitor has a 3 year warranty, if the monitor was purchased with the system , the warranty is the same as the system or if that warranty more than 3 years than the warranty for the monitor is still only 3 years. Thanks and please reply back if you still need assistance.

Computer used to work with projector, and now doesn't?


Have you tried pressing Fn F5? On my system (HP), by computer monitor goes dark when I connect the projector. Pressing (Function) FN F5 toggles the video between Computer Monitor, Projector, or Both.
Check the function settings for your computer. On my Compaq laptop at home, the video function is F4, so there may be different settings for your computer.
Good luck!

How to run monitor and projector same time?


You would have to have a dual head video card (two monitor connections) or have two regular video cards, or use a VGA splitter. If you do it through a video card, once you have them installed, go into the settings tab on the display properties and it will show multiple monitors, simply click on the second one and check the box that says "extend my desktop..."
Good Luck!

Projector Lamp


Hi there

Does your Projector go in for regular services ?

Have a technician check out the fans of this unit as well.

I would suggest you hook up a UPS to this Projector , because eventhough you might not have power dips or failures - the power supplied to appliances is not spike free and Projectors struggle to handle this well.
