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.

Hi,

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

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

The table we have ordered has no slot for a connectivity box so we will be making a hole in the table to fit a connectivity box.

The ports needed for the connectivity box are:
- Cat 6a/ 7
- Display port (version 1.4)
- Power socket (Irish/ UK or universal socket)
- Audio in (for 3.5mm cable)
- HDMI port (version 2)
- USB (Type A) (version 3.0)
- Telephone port (RJ11)

This is what we were recommended:

EVOline FlipTop Push Large brushed stainless steel, brush strip

Socket Modules:1 x 75mm

Multimedia Modules:
1x USB Type A 200mm Cable (50mm) (version 3.0)
1x HDM-I No Cable (25mm) (version 2.0)
1x Display Port 400mm Cable (25mm) (version 1.4)

Data Modules:
2 x CAT 6A No lead
1x Main Lead 3 meters.

Price: €350.42 less 10% net before vat €315.38, Transport charge included.

This is fine except that the price is a bit high and we were told delivery would take 6 weeks.

Is there an Irish or UK companies that sell the EVOline FlipTop Push Large brushed stainless steel, brush strip or something like it for around €100 with a much faster delivery time?

Thanks,
Robbie

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.

The table we have ordered has no slot for a connectivity box so we will be making a hole in the table to fit a connectivity box.

The ports needed for the connectivity box are:
- Cat 6
- Display port
- Power socket (Irish/ UK or universal socket)
- Audio in (for 3.5mm cable)
- HDMI port
- USB (Type A)
- Telephone port (RJ11)

What would you recommend as a very good conference table connectivity box to use with these cables?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi guys,

I have a few HP Elitebook (4k display) running windows 10, and a second screen using RDP to a Server 2012R2 RDS server.
My problem is, when I enable the PreferExternalManifest in the registry to fix DPI scaling it will no longer allow multiple screens to work.

I have tried using the program options (aka "Use all my monitors" in the display tab of MSTSC, as well as mstsc /span /v:server and mstsc /multimon /v:server

When i disable PreferExternalManifest it works with multiple monitors, but fails to render well.

Has anyone come across this and found a fix / workaround?

I had this question after viewing Can't get 2nd monitor to be recognized by Dell Optiplex 3050. I have two monitors to connect to a Dell 3050 but they only have VGA connectors. If I connect the monitors separately they work, but if I try to connect them at the same time only one will work.

Seeing double in Office products mostly when projecting but will occur when normal view as well. I have updated the display drivers and disabled hardware acceleration within Office products. I am attaching a picture of the error here: https://imgur.com/a/OrgiLzZ

The laptop and Office products are fully up to date.

I need an exceptionally portable second screen that is close to 12 x 8 on the outside so that it will fit into this binder which also holds my Windows Surface 4 pro computer.

Some low priced highly portable options/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I have a Clear Cube Zero client with two DVI ports and 4 USB ports, a
Dell Precision T 3500 with two DP with 6 USB ports, and Two Dell P2715Q monitors each with one HDMI port, DP (in), DP(out), mDP (in)

I want to be able to have the keyboard, mouse, and both monitor work with the Zero Client and at least one or both monitors,  keyboard, mouse work with the PC

What type of KVM switch would I need to switch between the Zero Client and the Dell Precision and be able to share the mouse, keyboard, and monitors?

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

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

OWASP: Threats Fundamentals

Learn the top ten threats that are present in modern web-application development and how to protect your business from them.

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.

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.

Robert
