Dell :: 630 W/ Dual Monitor

Feb 1, 2010

I am trying to run dual monitors on a d630 with Intel 965 video and the laptop, after reboot, will not hold its settings.

It always wants to revert back the VGA screen as primary and ignores the second DVI monitor.

I have tried undocking and removing the dock profile so it can re-establish it but no success.

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - Dual Monitor Display Resolution With DVI-D Dual Link Cable

May 18, 2014

I have recently purchased a W540 and connected to my Dell u3011 30" monitor. I used the Dual Link DVI-D cable that came with the monitor and plugged it into my Ultra Dock. The maximum resolution i can get is 1920x1080? When i change over to a Display port cable i can achieve the full 2560 x 1600 resolution? Is there something i need to do in addition to achieve the full 2560x1600 resolution with the DVI-D dual link cable? I want to be able to connect 2 laptops to the one monitor and only have 1 display port input so i need to be able to use the DVI cable on the 2nd machine while still achieving 2560x1600 resolution.

Dell :: Dual Monitor Resolution

Jul 13, 2009

having trouble with my second monitor that I am trying to connect.

I am using a DVI to HDMI cable and inputting it into the second screen (It is an lcd tv).

Windows 7 allows me to change the resolution of both monitors seperately. i made my regular monitor the same 1920 x 1200, but no matter what resolution i make the second screen, the edges, top bottom left and right are all cut off, sort of like a cropped version of what i should be seeing .....

Apple :: MBP- Dual Monitor

Jun 18, 2009

I have my MBP setup with an external monitor and everything is fine except that when I'm using two programs, the toolbar (very top bar on the screen) doesn't move.

I know that I can go to display preferences and select which screen has the bar but what I'd like to do is have say Photoshop on one screen with its bar and InDesign on the other with its own bar. Is this not possible?

Sony :: Dual External Monitor

Feb 27, 2010

I just picked up a Z laptop. Got the docking station the VGP-PRZ1. The dock has a vga and DVI connector. When I connect two monitors to the dock the software will only allow me to turn one on. I get an error "this gpu only supports a single display"

Does that mean I can not use 2 external monitors?

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Dual Monitor

Jun 10, 2009

I'm trying to set up dual monitors, and can't seem to get it to work.

I'm using a external LCD with a DVI->VGA converter plugged into the laptop. The LCD knows there's a signal as when I plug it in it just goes blank as opposed to the "no signal" screen.

However the laptop doesn't seem to detect it. When I go to graphics properties it says "Multiple Display, blah blah, please connect another display". And there's no tab for another monitor or anything.

Apple :: Macbooks And Dual Monitor

Jul 21, 2009

I'm thinking of purchasing a new macbook with the mini display port and upon research I have gotten reall confused about cables that go into it.

The one I am looking at is the cheaper mini display to dvi-d, from what I have gathered it does not support a res higher than 1920x1200 and will not support a dvi to vga port, but what I am really worried about is will it support a dual monitor set up (one screen the laptop screen and a standard other screen that does not have a higher resolution.

So will I be fine with that port of do I have to buy the really expensive one to do so all these reviews have me really confused.

Sony :: Will Z Drive 30" Monitor / Dual

Mar 25, 2009

I just ordered a Vaio Z590 and am deciding what monitor(s) to order to go with it.

Specifically, I was wondering if it would drive a 30" monitor (2560x1600). The 9300m graphics card specs appear to support it, but I've heard that the Z supports only up to 1920x1200. I'm getting the docking station too,

If not, I was thinking of dual 24", but I've read that no one has gotten the Z to work with multiple external monitors either; is this true? In another post someone recommended the Matrox Triplehead2Go, but that doesn't appear to support 2 external monitors at 1920x1200 resolution + the internal screen.

Apple :: MBP - Dual Monitor Running Bootcamp

Oct 19, 2009

I'm running Windows XP (32 bit) on Bootcamp on my 2008 MBP with nvidia 8600m GT graphichs card. I cannot select my external monitor to be the primary monitor because it's grayed-out (I can't select it where it says 'use this monitor as my primary monitor').

I just went onto nvidia's website and downloaded the latest drivers and installed them. No difference. Anyone know how I can achieve this?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 New Dual Monitor (no VGA)

Jul 19, 2014

I just purchased these 2 new dual monitors whose input connectors only come in HDMI, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort.  I'm using a X230 with a Ultrabase 3 and I can't seem to get the 2nd monitor up and working... My first one is being used through the displayport direclty on my laptop (left side).
 
Is it not possible to get both monitors using a combination of these cables?  Would buying a converter (HDMI or displayport --> VGA) solve the problem?

Lenovo B / G Series :: B570 Display Fails After Dual Monitor Display

Aug 6, 2014

After running my B570 (1068) with an extended display, the unit went into hibernation. On wake-up the laptop screen is indecipherable garbage. The second display will run to show BIOS startup but then reverts to the built-in screen - which is illegible. Toggling the F3 key does not get a good screen.
 
I read another post suggesting this is a hardware failure. What parts have failed?

HP/Compaq :: Dual 3870s, Dual Screened, Quad Core 17in Voodoo

It sure does look like that Clevo 18in revealed sometime ago.

Under the hood of the 17.1-inch Firefly we found a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme Quad Core CPU, 4GB of RAM, a pair of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3870 GPUs running in CrossFire mode, and a 7,200 rpm 250GB hard drive. The Firefly spec sheet said the machine is capable of overclocking, but we didnt touch the BIOS.

And a MultiTouch trackpad, Backlit keyboard (with m15x-esque customizable colours), Creative X-Fi audio and a Dual Hinge like the HDX 20.

Dell :: Anyone Have Dual HDDs In Their XPS 16?

Oct 30, 2009

Looking at the new XPS 1645 since I need a laptop before the new year and since it's pretty much identical to the current XPS 1640 in terms of the body AFAIK,

I was wondering if anyone has replaced the DVD drive with a HDD caddy and have pictures of how it fits? Specifically, I was looking at products from nando4's thread:

DIY: Adding SSD or HDD storage using an optical bay caddy

I believe people said it was possible but I lost the post somewhere in that massive XPS 1645 owner's lounge. The questions I had were:

1) The DVD on XPS 16 should be a 12.7mm SATA and I was wondering what specific HDD caddy was used? From the thread above, this might work .....

Dell :: 6GB Dual Channel Ram (XPS 16)

Apr 14, 2010

The XPS 1645 offers choices of 4, 6, and 8GB of ram. Just out of curiosity, how can 6GB of ram be dual channel? I was under the impression that dual channel requires matching pairs, and that 6GB of ram would be one 4GB stick and one 2GB stick. However, the Alienware laptop seems to have listed what I would expect (3 and 6GB configurations not listed as dual channel).

See below.

[XPS 1645]
4GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Included in Price]
6GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Add $225.00]
8GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 [Add $375.00]

[Alienware M15x]
3GB DDR3 at 1066MHz [Included in Price]
4GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $50.00]
6GB DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $200.00]
8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz [Add $350.00]

Dell :: Dual Boot : XP And 7

Feb 5, 2009

I formatted my XPS M1530 using this guide (How to: Step-by-step guide for installing Windows XP on XPS M1530) and everything worked perfect.

But when I rebooted, I realised that the computer booted directly to XP and didn't let me choose between XP and 7. Normal, I thought, so I stuck in the W7 CD and selected the "repair" option. This did the trick very neatly, repairing the W7 install. The only problem was that now it will boot ONLY to W7 and I still have no selection screen for the OS.

Looking into getting a Dell XPS series, but can't find any info on having dual HDD bay's.

I really like this feature on my HP, but dollar for dollar Dell has much better hardware out of the box. Some one let me know if any Dell's have this. Probably going to wait till Windows 7 comes out.

Dell :: Trying To Dual-boot Win 7

Jan 14, 2009

I am trying to dual-boot Windows 7 on my XPS M1530 which is currently running Vista Ultimate - BUT I stumbled upon a problem. As I understand it, Vista will only allow you to have 4 partitions and magically I have 4 already.

I reformatted the laptop right after purchasing and no longer have the recovery drive. Here is what Vista says I have:

(1) EISA Configuration - 47mb
(2) C: (Vista) - 179gb
(3) Primary Partition - 4.25gb
(4) Primary Partition - 3gb

Dell :: Dual Intel X-25 SSD In M6400

Oct 20, 2008

I opted for 2 7200 RPM drives for my configuration. I also selected the quad core processor, 1gb video and 8gb of ram. I was very close to purchasing with SSD drives, but my first experience with SSD wasn't very good. I purchased one of the first XPS 1330 with the 32gb SSD option. I really bought into all the hype and after about 60 days I swapped it out with a 7200 rpm drive. Anyway, looks like SSD drives have improved drastically.

I was just reading some reviews and performance tests on the Intel X-25 80gb SSD drives. I'm considering buying two for the M6400 and setting them up RAID 0. I really don't care about storage space.
