Dell :: E1705: How To Use Two Primary Monitors?

Aug 25, 2009

I am connecting the E1705 to an external LCD via DVI - HDMI.

I am however unable to use both the laptop LCD and the external LCD (37" Sharp 1080p)

You have to pick one or the other, when the internal LCD works I only get a desktop screen on the Sharp, if I close the lid of the laptop, only then the external LCD becomes active.

Dell :: I Can't Create A Primary Partition On My XPS M1330

Feb 8, 2009

I have a dvd with Windows 7 Beta on and I am trying to isntall it so it will dual boot with Vista on my XPS M1330.

Now the first thing I have to do to dual boot is to create a primary partition for Windows 7 or to shrink the C drive using vista's disk management.

I have tried many different programs to shrink my harddrive or create a new primary partition so that I can dual boot Windows 7 Beta.

Dell Inspiron 17R SE :: Add Larger 256gb SSD As Primary Drive With OS On It?

Apr 27, 2013

what I can safely do with my new 17rse? I'd like to do something along the lines of putting a 32gb mSata (no option pre-purchase) as cache for my HDD but does this become pointless if I'd also like to add a larger 256gb SSD as a primary drive with OS on it?

HP/Compaq :: DV6-2138CA 4 Primary Partitions

Mar 14, 2010

I bought an HP DV6-2138CA and the 500GB hard drive has 4 primary partitions. There is a primary before the Windows7 partition (probably from Win7), the recovery partition primary and the HP tools primary. I created 1 set of recovery DVDs, as well burned the swsetup directory on a dvd.

I then installed Win7 Pro x64, after imaging the current Win7x64 Home, clobbering the Win7 home partition. Now I realize that one of the remaining 3 primary partitions have to be deleted if I want to create an extended partition to hold logical partitions for my use.

As a test I put a spare 160GB hard drive in the laptop and ran the recovery DVDs. It reinstalled Windows7 Home Premium and created the HP tools directory. However the recovery partition was not recreated. Rather than relying on one set of recovery DVDs I guess the only way to make a second recovery DVD set at this stage, is to copy my existing DVD set to a backup set.

My question is can I safely nuke the recovery partition, HP Tools partition and still get warranty support and if necessary send it into HP?

Update:

The recovery discs that I created are not copyable due to read errors. I restored the Win7 Home Premium but friggin HP says that I can not create another set! There is no HPCD.sys file at the root of the recovery partition that I can rename to get around this ridiculous restriction!

Dell Inspiron 7720 :: Possible To Install OS On Drive And Use It As Primary Boot Device

Oct 16, 2012

I purchased a Dell 7720 (contains 2 1TB HDD's) after speaking to Dell technical support who reassured me that when I install an mSATA drive, it is possible to install the OS on the drive and use it as the primary boot device.

So I received my 7720, plugged in the mSATA drive and cloned the OS partition to the drive. When I restarted the machine, behold... it is not in the list of bootable drives, however it has been recognized as an mSATA drive. After messing around with the BIOS for 30 minutes, I am unable to get it to be a bootable device.

Apple :: Making External Monitor As Primary Display In Bootcamp

Nov 25, 2009

I have MacBook Pro (late 2008) and I have WinXP installed in Bootcamp.

Recently I acquired a Dell SP2309W monitor that is capable of 2048 x 1152 resolution. When hooked to my MBP and start in WinXP, the external monitor works fine in EXTENDED mode. That is, I can move Windows to the external monitor. The MBP display is the primary display, where the Taskbar is displayed.

What I want to do is make the external monitor my PRIMARY display, with the taskbar shown there. However, the "Use this device as the primary monitor" is greyed out.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T440p - Right Click Shortcut / Possible To Switch Primary Function Of F Row

Oct 16, 2014

I have the Lenovo T440p model.
 
First is while I'm docked in at work I use a normal key board and it has a right click botton on it. When I go home I do not have that button and know for previous models there is a short cut that you can do to "right click" rather than going to the track pad and right clicking. 
 
Second is for the F1, F2, F3, etc... to work I have to hold down the Fn button. Is there a way to turn around the keys to where when I hold down the Fn key and press F1 it actually mutes the sound. I guess im trying to say is there a way to switch the primary function of the F row?

Dell :: 17'' FHD Monitors *ever* Be Available Again?

Apr 27, 2010

HP - No.
Dell - No.
Acer - No.
Asus - No (well, except for G73).
Toshiba - No.
Sony - No.

All are selling 1600x900 in 17" laptops. What's up with that? FHD is available in the 16s and 15s! It's bad enough I have to lose 10% of my screen real estate by going from 1920x1200 to 1920x1080 but down further to 1600x900? Not going to happen! Is there only one plant in the world making these things? Did it burn down or something?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y510P HDMI Quality Output - Not Optimal Screen Resolution For Primary Display

Jan 1, 2015

I have a problem with hdmi output to my TV screen.

I have Y510P (i7-4700MQ CPU @ 2.40GHz,  Intel(R) HD Graphics 4600

& NVIDIA GeForce GT 755M, Win 8.1 64-bit(6.3 build 9600), all with latest drivers )

My TV is Panasonic TH-L32B6. When I connect my laptop to TV it shows me awful picture quality and notification that “this is not optimal screen resolution for the primary display. The optimal res. Is 1280x720”. But with 1280x720 it’s still awful. It works fine just with 1024x768 res. I have no such a problem with my other TV LG 47LS570Y. How can i fix picture quality with higher resolution? I tried another OS like Ubuntu and a couple of hdmi cables…(see attachment)

Dell :: Two External Monitors On XPS Notebook Possible?

Dec 28, 2009

I have a new XPS 1640 Dell notebook with ATI Mobility RADEON M96XT 1GB video.

I am using an external 24 in (1920 x 1200 res.) monitor through VGA port.

The notebook has additional HDMI and DisplayPort.

I'd like to know if it is possible to connect a second external monitor. It would be 17 in (1280 x 1024) used as extended desktop, not mirrored. The monitor has DVI port as well as VGA.

If it is possible, which cable should I use? I assume DisplayPort might be better than HDMI. Is there a such cable that converts DisplayPort to DVI?

Dell :: 1730 With 2 External Monitors

Jan 30, 2008

Does anyone have a solution for 2 external monitors running 1920x1200 with the 1730?

I know there are docking stations (USB & Express Card) that have video with a max of 1600x1200.
There are also just plain USB to DVI adaptors but are also limited to 1600x1200.

Has anyone tested a cable like this...

Dell :: Hard Drive Failure Of Primary Drive On Studio 15

Feb 13, 2009

I hate for this to be my first post, but after looking everywhere on the internet and on this site (I've been lurking a while) I'm still at the same place I started with my Studio 15 laptop. I'll try to include as much detail as possible.

I had my laptop plugged into my LCD tv via an HDMI cable as I often do, and when I went to close the laptop to use just the LCD, the tv flashed, showed a blue screen of death for a quick second and then went black. I opened the laptop and it was still on, but the screen wouldn't go on.

I restarted my computer and from there on out it kept making a beeping noise and stalling for a really long time at the "Dell Studio/progress bar" screen. After leaving it at that screen for a while the clicking stop and then it allowed me to access the Boot Options and Setup. Under setup, when I click on the drive under SATA hard drive, it shows something like 10GB and nothing more, and I have no options on the screen .....

Dell :: Studio And Studio XPS Laptops, Who Are They For And What Are The Primary Differences?

Apr 23, 2009

I'm interested in purchasing one of these two. Probably 15'' for the Studio or the 16'' for the Studio XPS.

I'm just a bit confused as to what the target users are, they seem very similar. From what I can see, the Studio XPS just has a better exterior and a superior display.

I intend to use the laptop for document editing, media (HDMI out to hdtv, most likely) and casual gaming. Price range is about 1300 CAD.

Dell :: XPS M1530 (8600M GT) Running Multiple Monitors

Apr 4, 2010

So, doing some research it seems that the Matrox dual or triple head2go is the pricey solution to running more than 2 external monitors. Are there other solutions to running 2 or more external monitors without shutting down the laptop screen?

I was thinking hdmi to one screen then 2 usb to dvi to the two other screens, but don't know if this will shut off the screen on my laptop.

Dell :: External Monitors For Inspiron 8200/Dimension 4600

Dec 7, 2008

I'm a bit embarrassed to admit to spending 4 or so hours with 4 Dell support fellows (3 chat/1 phone) fiddling with my Inspiron 8200 attempting to connect the Dimension 4600's 1901FP monitor...with no success. After (I've lost count) x number restarts/restores it's a wonder the 8200 seems to be back to where I/we started earlier today
.
1. I would still like to add an external 1600x1200 monitor to the 8200 notebook. The Dell people say it's a no go--maybe with a lower res monitor? The notebook is used by Marilyn (spouse) who does two things: writes a few notes and edits digital photos.

2. As for myself I'd like to exchange the 19" 1901FT for a bit larger (say 23-24" monitor with maybe a bit higher res (for photo editing work.) I've had my eyes on a Samsung 2343 BWX ..with a 2048x1152 resolution...leaving me to wonder if the Dimension 4600 will support it? (Or if I'd best invest in a z590 series Sony Vaio notebook that I can take to the field/drive the Samsung 2343 at home...)

Even better would be this: I have two external monitors - both vga with no DVI (oh well). Can I get this working?
