    2 monitor setup


    I have a vga and hdmi monitor. Windows 10 settings shows that I have 2 monitors set up, but when I try to run some programs they show up on the second monitor and not the first. Then the next problem is that the mouse cursor is still on the 1st monitor. When I try to arrange the monitors in display settings and then click identify i cannot seem to get my main display to show as 1. How do i correct this?

    :)

  2. Double Monitor Setup is not connecting

    Hi Yuri,

    To setup dual monitors, I suggest you to press Windows + P keys
    and select Extend or the required option and check for status. If you are still unable to setup dual monitor, suggest you to update the Display Adapter driver by following the steps provided below and check for status.

    • Press Windows key + X and select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapters.
    • Right click on the driver and select Update Driver Software.
    • Follow the on-screen prompts to update the driver.

    Hope this helps. Keep us posted on the status for further assistance.

  4. 2 monitor setup

    (4K DP, 1440p DP, 1200p DVI-D) Triple monitor setup; 2 monitors have the same background when background is set to slideshow shuffle

    My setup:

    • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770
    • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition, fully updated drivers
    • OS: Windows 10 Pro v1803, fully patched

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Connect the monitors as in the title
    2. Set wallpaper background to shuffle in Windows Settings

    What happens:

    2 of the monitors (always adjacent to each other) have the same background.

    What should happen:

    All 3 monitors should have different backgrounds.

    Anyone ever seen this before? Any ideas?
