I have a Dell OptiPlex, new, that I cannot get to work with my ACER X233H monitor.... Input Not Supported.

Googling hasn't helped.

As the computer boots you can see things but then once W10 is about to boot video is lost... lest I go into safe mode.

Attempting with HDMI (computer doesn't support VGA or DVI).

I currently have a NVidia GeForce GT 610 graphics card (see attached image with available ports on adapter card). Will this card support three Dell UltraSharp 24" - U2412M monitors? If so, what type of extra connector do I need to support the third monitor?

Hello Experts - I'm starting my budget for next year and one thing I would like to do is replace some monitors.  I work for a small architectural firm and right now we're using relatively inexpensive Acer 24" monitors.  They're ok but I'd like to do better.  I'm looking for recommendations for monitors that would work well for architectural designers using Revit and CAD.  Let me know what you think!

Dell OptiPlex 7050 mmf.  Can't use dual monitors.  The machine has 2 video ports, 1 hdmi and 1 Dell Video port.  I connect one monitor to the HDMI port with a straight HDMI cable and it works great.  I can connect the other monitor to the Dell video port with an Dell to HDMI cable and it works great.  However I can't get both monitors to work at the same time.  If I click on detect monitors I get a message that says no other monitors detected even when both are connected.  I get the same message no matter which monitor I start with.

Hello everyone and thank you for reading this.
I currently have three monitors on my desk.  Two Dell U2415 and one Dell U3011.  The 2415s are new and the 3011 seems to be failing after about 4 years.

My question: Is it feasible to use a high-end TV as a monitor?  I don't do gaming and so the refresh rate won't be an issue I don't think.  My work consists of building websites, doing graphic arts and doing a good bit of architectural drawings using AutoCad.

I'm looking at this TV

User had bad monitor.  Replaced monitor with dell uz2315H on a windows 10 machine (Dell Vostro 200) and had an issue with the monitor turning off randomly.  Thought it was a bad monitor, so RMA'd and got a new one.  Issue still persisted so switched from onboard video to pci-e video card using the displayport connection.  Problem still persists.  Screen randomly turns off while the pc is being used.  I checked Windows 10 power options, they are set to performance and to not turn off the display.  When the display turns off the power button on the monitor must be pressed to turn it back on so i don't believe it is going to sleep. I have updated the drivers for the video card also.  Windows 10 version is 1803 17134.1.  Also when monitor turns off pc is still on and sending signal, so when power button on the monitor is pressed user can go right back to work.

Connecting a Mac to a Large flat screen TV?

I use High Sierra and hope to make a presentation using a Large flat screen TV in a rented conference room.

So, I need to connect my PC to the monitor using Wifi, which I have not done before.

What steps are involved? Clearly, I need to use the Wifi network of the location.

Then what?

Thanks

Hi,

We are currently creating a conference room to be used for meetings.

We plan to have a large display installed on the wall, board room table in middle of the room and cables running from the display to the board room table.

We plan to have many cables coming to the board room table which can be used for people's laptops during meetings.

What would you recommend as a very good conference table connectivity box which could be used for connectivity with cables such as HDMI, Ethernet, etc and provides power to devices with sockets attached?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi,

We are currently creating a conference room to be used for meetings.

We plan to have a large display/ TV installed on the wall, board room table in middle of the room and cables running from the display to the board room table.

The cable length needed would need to be about 10 metres long, which we may hide under the carpets.

We plan to have many cables coming to the board room table which can be used for people's laptops during meetings.

What would you recommend as the cables we would typically need for to have coming up from board room table?

Thanks,

I checked the Graphics Driver:

3.pngBut still happening.

User needs to restart Outlook (seems to be the only app that is affected) to refresh correctly.

Windows up to date. Office up to date.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hi, I have a video on a thumb drive that I would like to continuously loop on a Sony TV KDL-50W800C. I can get it to play once by selecting it through the photo or video player apps (sorry TV not with me at the moment) but once it’s played it stops. I feel sure that it must be possible to loop the video. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks

I am wondering whether to buy a 240Hz monitor for my sons to use for gaming.  How does fps relate to refresh rate? One has a GTX 750Ti and the other has a GTX 960. Both of them say that they are capable of a 240Hz refresh rate but when they play their games they never seem to get an fps of more than about 170. Does that mean that the graphics card would be able to cause a 240Hz monitor to refresh at 240Hz but that the change in image would actually only occur 170 times per second - a bit like having the monitor sample 240 time per second an image that is changing 170 times per second?

Essentially, does this mean that until they get a graphics card which is capable of an fps that is closer to 240, then a 144Hz monitor would perform in a similar way to a 240Hz monitor?

Thank you

Hello -  I have a Dell P3418HW monitor installed and connected to a PC.  I'm using Dell's Display Manager to split the monitor so it acts as two monitors.  That works fine.  The issue is that this user had previously 3 monitors and had monitor 1 mirrored to monitor 3 so that a customer could see what was on that screen.   Monitor 2 was an extended desktop of monitor 1.   With the Dell P3418HW I cannot find a way to duplicate half of the screen (equivalent of one monitor in the previous setup) to the other monitor.  Dell says their software can't do it.  

Anyone run into this or anything similar and have a solutions or suggestions?   Please and thank you!

I've got an older TV with RCA inputs and a new DVD player whose output is HDMI.

I've got a cable, which I found out after the fact, doesn't work without a converter box. I plugged it up and nothing showed on the TV screen. Here's the cable I purchased:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078SQRVT4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So, after doing a little research, I was able to determine that I needed a converter box. I bought this one:







After hooking it up in the most intuitive way I could envision, I turned on my TV and I've got sound, but the picture is in black and white and the image is doubling up. In other words, rather than one, sharp looking picture. I've got two "panes" and it looks bad.

What am I missing?

Have a HP 450 G3 laptop (win 7 pro) and I purchased a HP usb 3.0 port replicator.  The user wants to ulilize 2 monitors all coming out of the replicator (none from the laptop) so they have the laptop screen, and 2 other monitors connected to the replicator.  The connection used for the 1st screen is a HDMI to DVI adapter.  The user connected this to the replicator and it worked.  Laptop screen, 2nd monitor working fine.  Then I sent him a startech usb to VGA adapter so he could have 2 monitors coming out of the replicator.  When he plugged it in he lost the monitor that was plugged into the HDMI port on the replicator.  Does anyone know if you can use a usb to vga adapter on a HP port relicator to add a 2nd monitor?  Or is there another way with this replicator that I can get 2 monitors connected to it?  The replicatior has 6 usb ports and 1 hdmi port and a display port.  Can I use the display port and connect to a monitor that has a vga or dvi connection?

What the docking station would you guys recommend for Dell Inspiron 14.  It should have 2x VGA ports for two monitors, and at least 3x USB.  
Thanks in advance.
