Displays / Monitors

A monitor or a display is an electronic visual display for computers, usually comprised of the display device, circuitry, casing, and power supply. The display device in modern monitors is typically a thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) thin panel, while older monitors used a cathode ray tube (CRT) about as deep as the screen size. They are connected to the computer via VGA, DVI, DisplayPort, Thunderbolt, LVDS or other proprietary connectors and signals.

Setting up a new office (at home).  I want to have a Tivo unit behind my desk.  My desk faces a wall on the other side.  I want to hang a TV on the wall, and get the Tivo HDMI output to the TV, so that all the TV has is a power outlet behind it, so no wires would show.  The Tivo output is HDMI.  The TV is a Samsung TH301 which includes pretty impressive wireless connectivity; they call it a Smart TV.  I find that I can connect to the TV with the Samsung utility on a notebook.  So I could use a browser and cast the output from a separate notebook to the TV.  However I want to use the Tivo remote, not a mouse or touch pad.  Ideally all equipment is in a cabinet in the unit behind the desk.

I visualize operation as using the notebook and its display to connect to the TV, then I switch to get the Tivo output onto the notebook, which would still be connected, thus appear on the TV.

So the solution is pretty simple IF I can just get the Tivo HDMI output into the separate notebook.  I am thinking of some sort of HDMI to ???? adapter.  If I can just get the Tivo output to the screen, I can cast the screen and the Tivo remote will work.  Would be nice, but not trying to preserve the HD resolution.

Hi,

We are searching for a touchscreen display/ TV to have in our conference room.

Ideally the size we are looking for is about 55 inches.

It will be useful for us but we are aware it comes at a high cost.

What is the cheapest 55 inch Touchscreen available?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi,

I am using python as RPA.
For that, I have to change the resolution of monitor or laptop according to my requirement.
Can we do or set the same resolution so that one code will run in both, laptop as well as monitor.

I am using Display Fusion 9.2 by Binary Fortress to manage my 6 monitor set up. Something is stuck with it and I am getting very high CPU Spikes which is slowing down my system considerably. I have two NVIDIA GTX 640 graphics cards. I just update to NVIDIA 397 graphics drivers.  I have 24GB ram on a Windows 10 system recently updated. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi there,  Q
I have got an Acer Harman/Kardon (thats probably not telling you anything at all), anyway, its an  All in One Acer and its running Windows 7.
It only has a HDMI cable output and the second screen has the HDMI cable.  I have tired 3 cables but the Acer won't identify or detect the monitor.
I am reading I am likely to need an upgrade to the graphics card.  I really don't know how to to this. Do you actually have to buy something to the motherboard or do you simply add some software that allows the two computers to talk to each other?
I wish it was a simple settings issue, but I suspect it's more.
I hope someone can help.
Thanks,
A

Recently, when remote session is logged in, the host laptop's display monitor only shows only 2/3rd of the display.  Note the laptop itself has a complete screen as well as the computer system that I am conducted the remote session from.

I have a Gigabyte z370n wifi MB.  It supposedly supports 3 displays. 2x HDMI and 1 Display Port.  My 2 HDMI's work but only mirrored.  The 3rd Display port does not work. It is using an adapter that is HDMI to display port. So there are two issues. Why won't the Computer pick up that it is multiple displays so I can expand separate displays and two, why wouldn't the display port work.  I am not using an additional GPU.  I'm only using the built in for now.  I was thinking maybe some software might help, but I couldn't find any drivers or software on the Gigabyte website.  Thoughts?

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.

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 have an HP ENVY TouchSmart m6-k022dx Sleekbook with Windows 10 64 bit. The screen got damaged so I purchased a new touch screen assembly. Now the touchscreen does not work even though the HID Compliant Touchscreen device is in Device Manager and is working properly. If I try to update the driver Windows tells me I have the most up-to-date driver. If I go to the HP web site to look for a driver it tells me there are no compatible drivers for my OS.

This laptop came with Windows 7 and I updated it to Windows 10 having no problems at all until the touchscreen got damaged and required replacement. Please advise on how I can get this touchscreen working again. I have tried the following -

Uninstalled the touch screen from Device manager and reinstalled it.
Updated all drivers.
Updated the BIOS.

Thank you.

I bought a Samsung Tab S3 (2017) and having problems connecting it to an external HDMI monitor.

1. Can you advise what I may be doing wrong?

2. What do I need to ensure I can display my TV or Projector or Monitor or similar as an extended desktop from my tablet?

3. Maybe I can use Chromecast but for my presentations I'll need access to streaming content from the internet (which if I use Chromecast my wifi will be used for casting and not for internet).

Please any clarification or advise will be grateful.

My Dell P28f laptop's second screen tp the TV does not appear when I connect the HDMI cable to my laptop..why?..the laptop is Very New too..is something wrong with the factory's product ?

Dear all,

I have a monitor with a USB hub and it's 'upstream' port is a USB-C.
It has 2 downstream ports, USB type A, I have connected my mouse+keyboard to it.

My macbook has USB-C output, if I connect it to the monitor, it works just fine.

My desktop doesn't have a USB-C output, which means that if I switch to my desktop (video over HDMI) I cannot use my mouse+keyboard without unplugging everything.

How should I connect my desktop to my monitor?

Would a USB type A -> USB type C cable work?
Or should I buy something like this https://www.amazon.de/dodocool-Express-Type-C-ConnectorSuperSpeed-Windows/dp/B01C59TB0I/?tag=androcentr0a-21&ascsubtag=UUwpUdUnU49956YYw ?

I have a dozen MSI GS63VR's to deploy.   Our current setup uses HP Z books with hard docks that provide power, Ethernet, dual display ports and several usbs.  

Hi am having a hard time finding a dock for the new MSI's.   I have tried USB 3 docks but they will not pass the Nvidia video thru, only the onboard intel.

Has anyone used a thunderbolt dock with these LT's that will provide dual monitor at the Nvidia level ?
