Random Screen Blackouts When Using Dual Monitors


Recently got dell inspiron 580 with nvidia geforce 310 graphics card. When i hook up dell monitor (1600x900) to vga output, no problems. When i hook up second monitor (1280x1024) to dvi port using dvi-vga adapter, i get randomly occurring black screens, especially after playing a few minutes of flash video on a web page. Once the screens are black, the only thing i can do is force power-off and reboot.

Where do i start to diagnose what is happening? All i can find is the event viewer, which doesn't have any critical or error events except that an unexpected reboot occurred. Is there some way i can start logging or run drivers in debug, anything like that? I'd like to get some more information other than "the screens are black", because right now i don't know who i should be talking to about this problem; dell, microsoft, or nvidia.

Dual Monitors Not Working With Laptop Screen

I use dual monitors at work with my laptop using a docking station (2 free standing monitors); no problem with this at work. At home, i have 1 monitor and use my laptop screen as the 2nd monitor. It works, but then stops working whenever i shutdown my computer (the laptop screen is blank when i restart my computer). I was able to get it working again once by plugging in the monitor while the laptop was working. Now, i can't even get my laptop screen to work. I'm using a dell e6400. Thanks.

Dual Monitors Malfunction

Dual monitors, whilst using dual monitors i could not maximize the windows as shown in the task pan when i hover the cursor on it. I disconnected one monitor and the problem disappeared. I disconnected the other monitor and again the problem disappeared. I switched connection between the sockets ( i.e. Monitor to plug b and vice versa) and the problem disappeared. Any ideas how to restore to dual monitor viewing?

Dual Monitors, Trying To Get Them To Work

Me and my friend are attempting to connect two monitors to his desktop, and we have the computer connected properly, but the monitor is not receiving any kind of signal from the computer (it won't turn on, just has a black screen or says in power saver mode). The main monitor works (obviously, since l am posting this) and it connects to the nvida dvi card (a installed video card), and the second monitor is a vga. The second monitor we want to hook up we want to use on the old video card that came with the computer, and we have the ports for it.

However we cannot get it to work, and it is quite frustrating. We have tried to update the software, but we believe he may have disabled the second video card without meaning to, and we need to know several things at this point:

1. Can we use dual monitors from two different computers and use them to do different things (i.e. Use it to surf two different websites with two different keyboards/mouses, or play two different games (our intention is to play wow off the computer) in this manner)?

1a. If so, can someone please link to a site that would be easier to read and understand? (We have been to a few already posted but they are confusing or just say the same things and aren't working).
2. How would we re-enable the video card should it be turned off? Again, simple steps please.

3. Can we use the two separate video cards to run the two different items on the computer, or would they both be forced to run off the one video card?

3a. If so, is there anyone who can explain how to link one monitor to one video card and not the other?

Dual Monitors - Black Bands On One

Dual monitors, black bands on one and the other monitor is fine using nvidia scaling, i recently upgraded from vista to windows 7 x64 via a clean install. I have dual monitors that i use on a daily basis. Both of them are wide-screen format. I prefer to use 1280x1024 which is far under the native resolution of both monitors because the icons and texts are bigger and easier to read. With vista, i didn't have a problem but hopefully someone can help.

I use a geforce 8800 and i downloaded the nvidia drivers so i can access the control panel to customize. With the first monitor, it gives me options under "adjust desktop size and position" and i selected "use nvidia scaling" and everything is back to normal. However, when i click on the second display that i would like to change, instead of providing those options, it gives me an option to move the screen up down left or right.

I thought that my selecting the nvidia scaling it would go in effect for both monitors, however it only shows it for one so i figured i have to manually do it for both. The other one is 1280x1024 with black bands on the side and it is frustrating trying to troubleshoot this. Can anyone provide a solution?

Dual Monitors Problem In Win 7

I have a dell laptop. I plugged in an acer al2223w monitor by vga cord. I went to screen resolution to setup dual-screens, and the acer monitor is identified, but it is the only monitor i see. It does not show 2 screens. The acer monitor is indicating that it has no signal. When i click "detect monitor" nothing happens. It is as if i have only the acer monitor on the system, even though the acer screen is not working? Please help if you have any information. Shouldn't the laptop screen also be showing in the screen resolution setup?

Problem With Dual Monitors In Win 7

I have two lcd monitors connected to an nvidia 8800 gtx graphics card. One lcd monitor is an older and smaller 22" samsung syncmaster 225bw. The other one is a brand new 24" s2409w dell lcd monitor. I obviously want the newer dell to be the primary monitor, and extend my desktop to the samsung. However, no matter how many different ways i connect/disconnect/reconnect the two monitors, windows 7 always assigns the older samsung as the primary display.

I went into display properties and clicked in the check box to make the dell the main display, and that seems to have "kind of" worked. For the most part, the dell is being used as the main display, but is still labeled as display 2. So, when i went to start windows media center, it comes up on my samsung monitor, which is my secondary(extended) monitor. My guess is, it does that because my samsung monitor is still labeled as display 1. So, i have two questions:

 1) how does windows 7 decide which monitor is display 1 and display 2? (You would think it would be by the order in which the display is connected/installed, but that is not the case).
 2) is there a way to force whoich monitor is display 1 (or 2)?

Using 2 Mice With Dual Monitors Setup

Is it possible to use 2 mice when dual monitors is setup? 2 mice with 2 cursors*premise:my partner and i have a home theater pc in the making with 2 monitors set up. We use one monitor for basic computing -web browsing, word processing, etc. The other we use for media and video streaming.

Problem: we both want to utilize the varied functions at the same, but constantly run into "sharing the mouse". We've tried setting up hot button keys on our iphones with mixed results. Solution:i think the problem would be solved simply by being able to install two mice on our system, each having its own cursor, but i cannot find a "software" solution. Question:is there anything i can do to windows 7 that will allow me to achieve two separate mice, each with its own cursor?

Screensaver Inactive Across Dual Monitors

In using dual monitors - one dvi and one vga - i cannot get the screen saver to show across both monitors using windows 7 (although this was possible in xp).

In xp, you could use dual/two monitors - one dvi and one vga - and they will both screen save; however, windows 7 will not (similar to vista). I recently installed an evaluation copy from a dvd on a dell 745 with a dvi card at work, and on a hp with vista at home, and they're both doing the same thing: the dvi will screen save but the vga will not. You can have the same machine running xp with dual monitors - one vga and one dvi - and when the screen saver clicks in xp, it the screen saver is active across both monitors but vista nor windows 7 will screen save across both monitors.

Dual Monitors - System Sees Only One

I just bought a brand new system, which has windows 7 (home premium) pre-installed. I've connected two (2) identical monitors (nec lcd72v) to a "y" connector. Both monitors display cloned screen, but it's only seeing a single monitor, not both so i can't "extend" to the second monitor. I've even tried hooking up one nec and one scepter, but get the same result. Both monitors show the same screen, but the system just will not detect the second monitor on which to "extend".

The "y"connector i'm using is a "gigaware 2 port usb-powered vga splitter" which claims to allow one to connect two (2) displays to one computer (such as a monitor, projector or tv). Note: all of the "help" refers to how to use the drop down to select the second monitor, so please be aware that the drop-down shows only the single monitor. I've tried disconnecting one monitor and re-booted. Adding the second back on as soon as the system was up. It still won't see the second device.

Dual Monitors Mouse Pointer Problem

Windows 7.nvidia geoforce 8500 gt. I have the latest nvidia drivers and control panel. I have two monitors; 1 on left, 2 on right. I have no trouble setting them up, but the indicated physical position on the computer is reversed; ie monitor 2 is on left, monitor 1 is on right. The problem is that i want the mouse pointer to move to the right to get from from 1 to 2. As it is.

If i am on monitor 1 (physically on left) i have to move my pointer to the left to get on the right monitor (monitor 2). This is opposite of what logic calls for. I have jiggled my cables every way i can think of, to no avail.

Dual Monitors With Multiple Productivity Issues

I have been in the it industry for several years. I am what people call a triple threat as i use windows, unix, and mac operating systems. For years now i have used dual monitors and have enjoyed it under all three operating systems. I loved windows and nvidia especially as there was a mode called span where the operating system would treat multiple monitors as though they were in fact one.

This allowed me several productivity gains like viewing videos across multiple monitors by saying full screen, editing images across both monitors, wallpapers that span across the entire display etc. There were hundreds of uses for this and i'd like to see an option soon that would allow me to span an application across multiple monitors.

I love the new snap feature you have given to window handling in windows 7 but again with dual monitors there is no way to snap to the middle divider. This is troublesome as i have to snap windows to the opposite end of my screens (40"+) in order to quickly compare folder list. This is also troublesome when using my laptop with an external display as i cannot snap to both sides of either the laptop or the external monitor. You can see what a loss this is when trying to compare folders quickly as outlined in your videos. I would love for you to add snaps to the middle of multiple monitors, this would save me a ton of time.

When stretching videos, images, applications across multiple screens in an effort to manually span an application the user experience degrades quite a lot. Under xp (nvidia span), linux, and mac spanning an application caused no degradation of speed or ui problems but under windows 7 it does. I would like to think this is because of my video card but alas i use the same card under linux and mac with no problems. I would not mind not having a span mode if i could fake it by stretching the application across the monitors, but the speed decreases so much that any productivity gain i would have made is wasted in loss of productivity.

Please allow to utilize multiple monitors without speed problems or having the ui of apps missing buttons. Please. Pretty please allow me to snap to my monitors middle edge. Please, please allow me watch videos in full screen instead of only on one monitor, and please with sugar on top allow me use wallpapers that will span my entire landscape instead of displaying the same image twice.

Dialogs Don't Appear On Old App With Dual Monitors

I've just started having a minor difficulty with my old photoshop 7 on windows 7: several of the dialogs no longer appear on screen (e.g. , The size of the image to save 1-12, lightness/darkness, and one or two others); "important" ones - like what to name the file, some add-ins & adjustments - show up just fine. It has not previously had a problem on the win7 system, so i don't presume that it is a problem with an incompatible old photoshop or necessarily with win7.

Have just added a second lg 23" dvi lcd monitor to win7 system, which is the only thing that has changed about the system since before this problem has arisen. Previously, i'd had one of the same monitor on dvi together with an older, analog flat-screen on vga as the secondary. Now, the new, second lg monitor is also on dvi, but unlike the original one, does not register on display properties as being "(digital). "I have tried switching which monitor (primary or secondary) that i display ps7 on, with no change; i have also swapped which of the monitors is primary & secondary, and also switched which ps7 displays on.

None of these combinations results in the dialog boxes showing up. The only other potential problem that i can think of at the moment is that i've added a new dvi cable that is different from the original one. The new cable is a "dual channel" (?) Dvi that has pins for all of the slots in the dvi connector, rather than only for about half of them (a "single channel?").

If anyone's familiar with what fry's electronics sells, these are $39. 95 and $29. 95 cables, respectively, the newer one by hp, the other a monster cable as i recall (like an idiot, i've thrown out the package). I'm going to mix this setup around a little bit and will post what effect, if any, changing cables and/or using only one monitor might have on this problem, but if anyone has a "fix" for it - maybe two "single channel" cables?

Windows Wont Allow Same Resolution On Dual Identical Monitors

Using nvidia geforce 250 card with dual envision monitors. Latest nvidia drivers for windows 7 64 bit. Monitor 1 shows as 'generic pnp monitor', while monitor 2 shows as 'generic non-pnp monitor'.

I can add a resolution to monitor 2 via nvidia software, but when selected, windows reverts to previous resolution. Monitor 1 sets fine at 1680 x 1050 x 60hz, while monitor 2 only goes to 1600 x 1024 x 60. The monitors are identical. This was not a problem in xp, both monitors ( and windows ) happy at 1680 x 1050 x 60hz. Any ideas? Can i disable the windows resolution setting program so that only the nvidia has control?

Win 7 Random Freezing

I have an acer aspire 6930 with intel core 2 duo (t6400 @ 2. 00 ghz), 4. 00 gb of ram, and win 7 32 bit operating system. Originally had vista on it but upgraded in jan to 7. I am also running avg antivirus on here. It was running fine until around the first of march. Then it started freezing up and you have to do a hard restart to get out of it.

It normally happens when i'm using internet explorer 8 but once it froze up a few minutes after i started it (i had no programs opened at that time). This is getting really annoying, i've tried everything i can think of and a bunch of the stuff in the forum. I play games on facebook but that's the only kind of games.

Win7 Random Shutdown

I am using win 7 ultimate 32 bit, upgraded over vista home premium 32 bit. My laptop is randomly shutting down, it never done it while i had vista installed. It is not going in to sleep mode or anything similar, as some have suggested, it completely shuts down with no warning but can be booted up straight away. The only time i can make it happen for sure is when i run the windows experience index, it gets near to the end and then shuts down. I used to be able to run the wei before so i don't know why it does it now.

Any ideas as this is really annoying me?

Pc Random Sound Failure

I bought a brand new intel core i7 860 2. 8ghz , 4gb ddr3 ram, intel whitesburg lga1156 p55, and windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Ever since i got it, the sound randomly disappears, and the only way to get the sound back is to restart the pc. Doesn't matter what im doing, be it skype, playing music, watching movies. Etc. It is also at different times, like sometimes it can take 1 minute to disappear, sometimes 2hrs. The pc has integrated sound, so no separate sound card. This had become beyond irritating i work in i. T, and have tried plenty, but nothing helps. Sound continues to randomly go off.

Random Corrupt Login Error

Occasionally and more frequently, login will not work properly. I am a genuine 64-bit windows 7 user, and i love the system, but unfortunately i have been running into a recurring problem. I'm sorry that this does not have any specific error messages (i didn't think ahead, and it's not happening now), but these are the symptoms:

- On boot, i get to the login screen just fine, i enter my credentials.

- It says welcome, and then something like "loading your desktop".

- It says something about a corrupted login, then puts me into either:

- A) some weird half-breed of windows 95 and 7, where icons still resemble windows 7, but the taskbar and explorers are grey

- B) this last time, i was logged into a temporary account

- Edit: when i shut down, there is some weird audio feedback

- From then on, if try to log in, an error message about login or profile data not found.

- I usually just restore to an earlier image, and it will work fine.

Unfortunately, this has become more frequent, and i'm wondering what is the culprit. If it is impossible to grasp the situation without further information, i will try to get it. Past searches suggested it was something about the registry.

Random Bsods - Event 41, Task 63

I am experiencing intermittent bsod crashes. The crashes do not correspond to high levels of activity, high operating temperatures or any other pattern that i can perceive. If anything, they occur most frequently shortly (seconds) after bootup or while the system is idle. The system is not overclocked. I have the latest bios available from msi and the latest optical drive, ethernet, gpu, and audio drivers.

(A side note on the ethernet driver. The latest version available from realtek's website is 7. 11. 1127. 2009.microsoft update recommended an update to the driver which i installed on feb. 6. This driver version was 7. 12. 128. 2009. I have experienced bsods with both versions of the driver. Currently i'm running realtek's latest version as i'm unclear how microsoft could have a more up-to-date version than the manufacturer. )

I have already tested the ram using memtest86. I've run in excess of 16 passes without returning any errors. I've also tested the hard drive using the manufacturer's diagnostic utility and chkdsk /r /f. Hard drive checks out fine. I've stress tested the system using prime95 and seti@home and the system has not shown any tendency to crash during stress testing. I've also run system file checker. It does not return any errors.

I've posted the minidump files here: http://expedientweb.com/bsod-dump.zip

I've posted the event logs here: http://expedientweb.com/event_log.zip

The critical events (which i assume are the bsod events) all run along these lines:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Random Bsod After Upgrading To Win7

I recently upgraded from windows vista home premium to windows 7 pro and have had some problems with random bsod's. I originally installed windows 7 over windows vista and after about 48 hours i would have a bsod with them happening at random time after that point. I thought that it have have been something left behind by the vista install causing the problem, so i re-installed choosing to format the hard drive so that i would have a "clean" install. 48 hours later, bsod with a second one happening less than two hours later.

The problem has not happened while i have been using the computer, just when the computer is unused and in power saver mode (i use the high performance setting offered in windows 7 only i do not power down that hard drives, just the monitor). I thought the problem may have been caused by the motherboard(i am still not sure on this score but. ) So i went to the manufactures website, downloaded and installed the latest bios that was suppose to included windows 7. That was between the original 48 hour bsod and the second today.

I am running and asus m4a78 plus motherboard with an amd phenom 9500 processor and 4 gb ram. The only drivers that i have installed, other than the drivers supplied by the os for devices are for my video card (ati radeon 5750) and printer (hp deskjet d1660) both of which came from the manufactures websites stating that they where for windows 7(i know, can't always trust them). As i have stated, the system has not bsoded on me during use, just when the sytem is unused so it has not been a major issue to this point, but i would like to try to correct the issue before it becomes a major issue.

Random System Hangs / Freezes

I have been banging my head against the wall trying to figure this one out. I am currently running windows 7 x64. At any given moment, the system will hang. Sometimes the system will go days without any issues, sometimes it will hang several times during one day. First the screen will freeze and all open programs become unresponsive, the mouse will continue to move around the screen as normal for about thirty seconds, but this time varies.

If i am watching a video or playing music, the audio will continue without interruption for several minutes, but this time will also vary. The caps lock, scroll lock, and num lock lights will continue to work also, meaning if i press any of the affor mentioned buttons, the light turns on/off like normal. The mouse, keyboard lights, and sound usually continue to work until i click the mouse buttons several times, at which point the system becomes entirely unresponsive.

My first instinct was driver issues. Noticing that the screen froze first, i assumed that the vpu was crashing and failing to recover. After several driver updates and much online research to this end, nothing had changed. I then turned my attention to drivers in general, updating all that i could, this again yielded no results. I then updated my bios and had no luck. Assuming it was not a driver issue, i examined my hardware. I thoroughly tested my hard drives, ram, and monitored loads and temperature on the cpu, vpu, and chipset.

I could not see any trends, the freezes appear to be at complete random. I do have an early amd phenom 9600 with the tlb erratum. I have tried enabling and disabling the patch in the bios
With no change. At this point i do not know what else to check. This is my most powerful pc at the moment, and i have reverted back to xp pro x86. I really like 7 over xp, but the instability in 7 makes it difficult to use for fear of data loss. Xp has no stability issues running on this same system. I have four other pc's which also have windows 7, none of them have had any issues. Some are 64-bit, some are 32-bit, all are stable.

My system specs are below: this is with the system at idle.

Motherboard: gigabyte ma790fx-ds5 motherboard - amd 790fx, socket am2+, atx, audio, pci express 2. 0, crossfirex ready, gigabit lan, s/pdif, usb 2. 0, firewire, serial ata, raid

Random Freezes With Win 7 64-bit

I use to run vista home premium x86 on a acer computer. This summer i downloaded windows 7 rc x86. A month ago i bought all new parts and since i could use 64-bit system now i installed a 64-bit windows 7. Then did the problem start. Every new and then the computer freezes, some days over 30 times. I thought it was hardware problem and tried a lot of hardware finders and nothing helped. I also installed windows 7 rc my mothers laptop (the same version i use to have that work fine) that used to run on vista home basic. But her computer didn't freeze it just got a black screen now and then.

The i started to suspect that it was because it was a beta version so when windows 7 were released i bought two of them a 32-bit and a 64-bit. But the problem didn't go away. It's still there and it's kind of frustrating and even more now when i’m trying to write a essay. I used windows upgrade advisor and it didn't see any problem with an upgrade to windows 7. What can i do?

Random Bsod, Error 0x0000001e

I keep getting the bsod on my pc. It was confined to skyrim only at the start but is now random and not always when i am playing games. The last error was when my wife was on skype. I have updated the graphic card drivers and even tried replacing the monitor as i had an error message about recalibrating the screen. As the monitor was pre windows 7 i blamed that and replaced it. It didn't work.

Random Bsods With Win 7 Professional 64-bit

I've been recently experiencing random computer lock ups and bsod's after fresh installing windows 7 professional 64-bit system. In addition, i did the fresh install twice, just to see if it was a bad install. I did not have any problems, while running the same setup under windows xp professional.

Random Bsod Crashes Due To Driver_power_state_failure

Random bsod crashes due to driver_power_state_failure when pc left alone or in sleep. I have a dell studio xps8000, core i7-860, 8gb ram, nvidia gt220, win7 home premium 64-bit oem which, more or less since new, randomly crashes about once a week if i leave it alone and powered up for several hours or put in standby first. When this happens the pc is either fully shut down (& i then boot selecting 'boot windows normally' option) or has rebooted to login screen automatically.

According to recovery boot it is a bsod, and each minidump file looks like nearly identical to this, parameter 1 always 0x00000003:

Random No Boot And Noises From Hard Drive

Last week my mobo was broken, and i must do a complete new installation (so everything) with my win7.
Yesterday i recognize that my actual hard-disc starts to make problem ( not starting while booting, sometimes hanging with unusual noises) which options i would have to do a repair, without to have a full new installation, i am tired of this. Is there someone out here, who can explain what to do, to a user, not an expert?

Desktop Icons Pixelated With Random Colors

Suddenly from one day to the other a few of my desktop icons look strange. The interesting thing is that some of the icons (like "my computer") are still fine, while others "foto's", "music", "documents" are affected.

The icons appear to have a square layer of random pixels over them. I've tried to find the issue on the net, but don't seem to find an answer. I'm running windows 7 (with all recent updates), nvidia 8800 gt (driver version 8. 15. 11. 8627)

Random Spike / Lag Online Game

I experience random lag spike when playing online game (rf online), i'm very sure this is not fps lag because my notebook can play gtaiv smoothly and this online game is kind a very old game (2001). I never get this problem when playing with xp. Some sites suggesting to turn off the multimedia scheduler, or disable auto-config on my wireless network connection, also did change the 'network performance throttling' on registry to be ffffffff. But none of them solve the problem. Last thing i did is reinstalling windows 7 and just put the necessary driver on it just for running the game, still the resource monitor displaying lag-spike on network grap.

My notebook spec:

Model g51vx-rx05 cpu intel core 2 duo p7350 2. 0ghz memory 4gb ddr2 800mhz (2x2gb)graphics nvidia geforce gtx 260m 1gb gddr3 storage 320gb 7200 rpm os windows 7 32-bit wireless intel 802. 11 a/g/n webcam 1. 3 mega pixel wired internet 10/100 ethernet, all with newest drivers from asus support page.
