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.

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?

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.

Sony :: AR520 Upgrade DUAL DRIVE

Apr 7, 2009

I was wanting to put in a lager hard drive in my system, I noticed that it has a spot for 2 hard drives,

I was thinking about leaving in the factory drive and adding a second drive.

I was wondering if I would have any problems adding a second drive.
I was thinking a 320gig to a 500gig 5400rpm drive.

Sony :: Vaio TZ Dual Hard Drive Swapping

Feb 11, 2009

Just pulled the trigger on a Vaio VGNTZ290NDB for $1,439 on clearance from Sony Style.

Seems like a nice unit.

Question:

This unit comes with a 64GB SSD (1.8" PATA) and a 250GB HDD (2.5" SATA).

Given the age of the model line, I'm assuming that the PATA SSD is not of the same performance level as the new SATA SSDs, e.g., Intel X25-M.

Would it be simple enough to put in an X25-M in place of the 250GB HDD and then make it the boot drive? Or is the system limited to booting from the PATA SSD?

A dual SSD ultraportable would be... well... sweet.

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 .....

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.

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?

I am about to make a purchase on the Studio XPS 16..

However, my main issue is would it be able to drive my 2 Dell 3007WFP-HC displays?..

I am aware that the Studio XPS 16 has a HDMI and DisplayPort built it.. Provided I am able to get all the conversion cables, could this laptop drive my 2 30" monitors at their native (2560 x 1600) resolution?..

Dell :: Using DVI-HDMI Cable To Drive External Monitor

Nov 28, 2008

I am considering a 24" monitor which I need t share as a second on my 1710, as well as the primary on my gaming rig (2X8800GTX SLI).

I want to drive it @ 1920*1200. I don�t want to use the VGA connector for one of the machines, when I do resolution drops to a max of around 1600*1100. So, I am looking at some of the monitors that have DVI and HDMI connectors. The thought was to connect one of the machines via HDMI with a special cable like one from bluejean cable, and use the other straight through, and choose a monitor with an easy one touch toggle between the two.

I read some horror stories that the HDMI link via a DVI-HDMI cable isn't optimal, and someitmes has its own resolution or sync limits. Does anyone know about this?

My other choice is a cheapo DVI switch, but it would be cool just to hit the input button.

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.

Sony :: Dual-band 802.11n Capability

May 17, 2010

I have an AR-790U laptop with an Intel 4965AGN wireless adapter. According to the wireless device manager provided by Sony, it is not recommended to enable 2.4GHz and 5GHz simultaneously.

I was curious to know if this restriction is present in other Sony laptops? Or if it has been lifted/deprecated?

And for those in the know, is this a limitation of the Intel device or the way Sony implemented some other part of the wireless functionality? (e.g. antennas)...

Sony :: Vaio Dual Display- VGN-AR550U

Sep 15, 2009

I have a VGN-AR550U laptop. According to the property page for the Display adapter it is: NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT. I want to be able to run a Powerpoint presentation where the slides are being shown on a big screen and the notes are shown on the laptop screen. I understand this has to be done thru a dual monitor type of setup. Can I test this without actually hooking up the big screen or does it automatically go into a dual monitor mode when you plug in the second monitory. When I select presenter view it says I don't have a second monitor.
