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 have a 2016 Server running a DC an RDS server and have a few users that run Multiple screens over RDP and that all works good, one is a laptop with second screen and other two users have PC's. while working they have lets say email open on the one screen and excel on the laptop screen and while working on email, the application jumps to the laptop screen, this is also the case for the PC's the app jumps from the non default/main monitor(Local) to the default monitor... now in 2012 this never happened... the laptop or PC's have no power managment and are actively being used so not screen to sleep or pc sleep going on.. is this a new issue in 2016 and please can Microsoft have a look at this... new OS and silly issues dont go well together. Looking to resolve this as Client not happy having to chase apps over the screens.

Hi,

I am a business person who works from home.

I am looking for a TV to use for TV/ Home Cinema and PC usage.

80% of the time this TV is used by my family for TV/ Home Cinema usage.

20% of the time this TV is used for PC usage.

I have been considering the FW-75XE9001 75" BRAVIA 4K HDR Professional Display.

I suppose any new TV would do for PC usage such as Ms Office, Internet, Video Conferencing etc., so what I am particularly interested in is getting the highest quality picture possible for the "Home Cinema" experience.
 
Thank you for your thoughts.

Hi Guys,

can i create a batch file which will change the screen resolution, screen positioning (multi monitor)? if this is possible can someone give me an example please?

i want to be able to setup about 4 to 5 icons which show a different setup for example (1 monitor + Laptop, 2 monitors + Laptop, 3 Monitors + Desktop). i want the user to simply click this button and the screens to adjust.

then we can make the batch file a default icon on each user image.

i also want to be able to have a revert button incase it all goes wrong for the user!

We have a Dell Precision 5520 laptop connected to a Dell TB16 USB-C dock and two Dell P2715Q monitors connected to the dock.  One monitor is connected via a standard DisplayPort cable.  The other is connected via a DisplayPort-to-miniDisplayPort cable.  When Excel (2016 64-bit) is opened in full screen on one of the external monitors, sections of the spread sheet are masked by black, grey, or white spaces of varying sizes.  We don't have the problem if we run Excel in a window - as long as the window doesn't exceed a certain size (about 3/4 of the monitor screen).  We have done the following troubleshooting steps:

- Updated drivers for the Laptop and the dock
- Booted into safe mode with networking and tried to run Excel  Excel wouldn't run because the license couldn't be verified.
- Uninstalled and reinstalled Microsoft Office 2016 64-bit
- Experimented with display resolutions with the following results (We didn't test any resolution below 2048 x 1152):
** The problem exists with the following resolutions:
### 3840 x 2160 (This is the recommended resolution - by Windows 10 - for the laptop and external monitors)
### 2560 x 1600
### 2560 x 1440
** The problem went away at the following resolutions:
### 2560 x 2048
### 2560 x 1920
### 2048 x 1536
### 2048 x 1152

Any suggestions?

My son has set up a Raspberry Pi in the home to display images. He enabled FTP and told me to connect via WinSCP. I have done this, and I see all the folders on the Raspberry Pi. However, I cannot upload images or do anymodifications on the raspberry pi due to a permissions problem.

Any ideas what could be the cause of this?

I am logging in with his username and password, which has full rights to the Pi.

Thank you.

I'm running a Toshiba Portege z30 and have a display issue. It's hard to explain without a photo so I have attached one for review. The screen starts breaking up into multiple black boxes at random. I've sent it back to Toshiba repair but the issue still persists. Anyone experience this before?

I want trying to find a solution that many businesses are asking me so solve.  I have many people that want to display one computer screen onto many smart televisions.  i.e. it is trivia night in a big bar.  They have eight televisions.  They want the computer that has the trivia questions on it to be displayed on all the televisions. If the client had installed a hdmi matrix switch this would be a simple fix, but without that wouldn't it be nice if there was a way to mirror the computer to multiple displays.  
Any help would be thanked.

We have a LCD Projector that is about 50 to 60 ft from the laptop.  We are using a 100 ft VGA cable for the connection.  There is also a TV monitor that is being in the same.  One of our tech person brought a splitter and attached to the end of the VGA cable.  Then there is a VGA cable going to the laptop and another VGA cable going to the TV.   After setting that up, we notice that the projection on the screen is dimmer and both the projection and TV monitor have wavy jumpy images.  What can we do to get clarity and get rid of the wavy jumpy images.  Thanks

Setup:  Presenter laptop connected via a HDMI Splitter to a Projector and a Blackmagic Ultra Studio Mini Recorder to my upload laptop.

When I try to connect like this my Blackmagic Devide is Blank BUT the splitter works well with Monitors.

Please advise a splitter or a scenario that is best suited with the devices I already have?

My HP monitor died on my DELL OptiPlex 990 so I replaced it with a ViewSonic  monitor . When I restarted the computer and open the Intel graphics and media control panel, under Display > General Settings > Display it still shows the HP monitor as connected. I update the driver for the Intel graphics card but it still shows the HP monitor as connected.

OK so I'm rearranging things on my desk and my desktop is in danger of getting the boot.  I was looking at an all in one but in looking at an iMac and thinking about installing windows on it....that is too expensive.  So my question is...does anyone know a good signal sender for HDMI or VGA that works well?  I'm on my computer non stop for work so I can't have any lag.  The PC wouldn't be far away...maybe 10ft.

Let me know.

Thanks!

Hello -

I'm looking for a projector that would fit with our conference room setup. There is a ceiling support at about 10-12 feet away from the screen and our current Viewsonic PJD 5155 cannot cover the entire screen no matter what the zoom is. It leave about 6 inches on the sides and 1 foot top/bottom. I looked at short throw but it doesn't work with our current setup. I also looked at a WXGA but I'm not sure the quality of the image would be high enough. I know it's a vague description but I was wondering if anyone has any experience with projectors and point me in the right direction.

Thank you so much!

I have a laptop docked to a docking station and it connects to two external displays. I have turned off the laptop display and am using the two external ones.

When I start a PPT presentation in presentation mode, one of the external displays disconnects and the laptop display turns on.

It stays this way even after the presentation mode is ended.

The Slidesshow monitor setting is set to Automatic, and use Presenter View is checked.
