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.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 With A -External Monitor Works But LCD Doesnt

May 27, 2009

ordered another LCD and tried to replace it, to no avail. I opened it up and everything was hooked up right. Then I tried the other LCD, he gave me with it. Same thing. When I hit the fn f4 in vista, it appears to try to switch but the LCD never comes up. Also, when switching display modes, the LCD will flicker breifly (VERY BREIF). This does not smell like a video adapter or motherboard problem. I am still working on it and researching but figured I would see what all of you thought.

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 :: 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.

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?

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 .....

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?

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?

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.

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?

Have a dv6000 with turion 64 X2 tl56 and 2 gigs ram. Running the latest F42 BIOS. Is this thing compatable with Win7 x64? It should be, anyone tried?

Lastly, is it confirmed that 2MB sodimms will NOT work on this thing? I'd like to upgrade, currently have 2x 1 GB sodimms, would like to try 2 GB sodimms if it would recognize them.

HP/Compaq :: DV6000 Won't Power On

May 4, 2009

I had a friend bring me her HP DV6000 telling me it won't boot.

When the power switch is pressed, all the lights come on for about 4 seconds, then go off. The screen never initializes.

I have noticed that touching the pad near the on switch/speakers will have the same effect.

I popped the switch panel and it looks to be plugged in and all the wiring intact.

I borrowed a known good battery and charger and it makes no difference.

The existing battery and charger work fine in the other DV6000.

Is it possible I need a new switch or cable? or is the mainboard toast?

Sep 12, 2009

i was using my hp dv6000 laptop and tried to open a video file my system got rebooted instantly and after that I saw a crashed boot screen (HP logo was all distorted, vertical lines on that). Any way i went to the safe mode and uninstall the nvidia drivers, now its working fine with default windows vista home vga driver but the boot screen is still distorted. When i update the nvidia drivers the laptop refuses to go inside the windows.

Have to go to safe mode uninstall the driver and it starts working on default vga drivers.

HP/Compaq :: Dv6000....DEAD

Nov 12, 2009

A friend of my g/f gave me her computer to fix. She said she took it to Best Buy and they said her HD is messed up. Now, if I order a new drive and the restore disks from HP, will that fix this issue? She is not worred about losing any data. Is my thinking correct? Install new HD, put in restore disks, start it up and follow the directions.
