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.

I have a Dell Precision T5400 that I've had for a long time, which has been working great over the years. I recently purchased three new Dell Ultrasharp 24" U2412 monitors. When I installed one of the new monitors and plugged my system back in, I come to find out my power supply went out. So, I took my PC in to get a new power supply and at the same time I had a new graphics card put in that would support a three monitor display. The card I purchased is the following: ATI  Fire Pro card. The previous card that I was using was a NVidia GeForce GT 610 card that came with the system. The new card was installed with the new power supply and the old NVidia card was left in the system. My PC is back up and running, but I have encountered a few issues. First, my audio no longer works. In the sound playback it is showing that the audio is not plugged in, but I've checked and it is definitely plugged in. I believe that it was using the NVidia audio, but now that I have the new  video card installed that might have caused some issue and I need to go into the BIOS and switch to the onboard audio? I was reading an article about making that change. However, the problem I'm encountering is when I boot up, I no longer see the Dell logo screen or the Windows loading logo screen. My PC will start up, but the first screen that comes up is my login screen once the PC has booted up. Until that happens, the screen …

Hi all!

I have a bit of a piecemeal setup at work and I'm looking for a definitive answer regarding my setup, so hopefully someone out there can help me. In short: I want to connect 3 external monitors and close my lid. Is this possible with the following setup, and if so, how are some of the ways to accomplish it? If I need to purchase accessories, I can.

Precision 7520 - Intel HD 630 + AMD Radeon Pro WX 4130

E-Port Plus Port Replicator

2x P2417H

1x P2414H

I currently am using 2x DP out, but that leaves the third monitor unused. I've been browsing for an hour now and I'm not sure what my options are specific to me. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Hello Experts

I just purchased the Blue Ray set of BBT Seasons 1-10.  I have a Blue Ray player attached USB3.0.  I've purchased Cyberlink Power DVD 17.  Following multiple errors I get error 0110.  It says "Cyberlink PowerDVD is unable to play this media because the required HDCP could not be initiated.  Ensure your graphics card, its driver and yokur display (e.g. LCD or projector) support HDCP."  

The CyberLink Knowledge Base says "In some OEM versions, CyberLink PowerDVD cannot output Blu-ray and CPRM disc content to analog display devices due to copy protection. To play this content, you must use a display device with a DVI or HDMI input interface that supports HDCP copyright protection."

My PC is a HP EliteDesk 705G3 with Windows 10 Pro, AMD A10-9700 3.5GHz Processor and 8GB DDRH 2133 RAM.  The video card is a Radeon HD7400 Series.  The display is a Sanyo FW40D36F 40" Flat Screen LCD TV.  The PC is connected to the TV using a HDMI cable.  

The Disk set is a UK import, Region Free.  I am able to play other Blue Ray disks (Titanic, Batman, The Hobbit) successfully.

Can anyone tell me where the problem lies?

Thanks

I had a follow-up question to a my previous post.

I had contacted a Dell rep about the new 24" U2412M monitors that I looking at purchasing and mentioned the graphics cards in my previous post I was considering purchasing to support the 3 monitor display. They indicated my current system, which is a Dell Precision T5400 might not support the card due to lack of the necessary power/wattage needed for the card. The rep came back and said that the cards would be supported with the power, but said the only Dell approved card was the Dell 2 GB NVIDIA Quadro NVS 510 (4mDP) (4mDP-DP adapters), 9NPC8 ((4mDP) (4mDP-DP adapters) (QMGA3) (Kit)) . They provided a very expensive quote for that card. I checked on Amazon and found a much lower price point, which made me concerned they were blowing smoke and that any of the cards listed in my previous post would work in my existing system. I also found that the price on Amazon for the monitors I am going to buy was $50 cheaper than the quote I got from the Dell rep.

So, I'm wondering if I'm being scammed by being told that the approved card by …

I'm looking to upgrade to a new graphics card that will support three monitors. I currently have a Dell Precision T5400 with a NVidia GeForce GT 610 display adapter. I'm looking at the following graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1050 shows it will support three monitors. I wanted to ask some experts if this card would work with the Dell Precision T5400 and support the following three monitors: Dell UltraSharp 24" - U2412M.


The 3 ports are 1 DVI, 1 HDMI and 1 Display port, so am I correct that I would need three different cables to connect to the monitors? The monitors show that it has the following ports:
DVI-D, VGA, DisplayPort, so I would need one adapter that goes from HDMI to DVI or Display Port, correct? Are there any concerns about this graphics card supporting three monitors  or working in an older system like I have?


I'm planning on upgrading my system, but need to do it one piece at a time so I'm just trying to get the new monitors first.

Thanks.

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!

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 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!
