    Cannot Extend to a 3rd Monitor - Doesn't Detect the Monitor


    I have a Windows 10 64 bit system. I have a Nividia Control Panel and tried to get the monitor to detect there, but it does not. It works but it duplicates, not extends. I gather I need something called an extender rather than a splitter. But I have no clue what type of extender. If someone could guide me to the item or items I should consider purchasing to make this happen, it would be appreciated. Here's my set up in pictures. I would prefer not to have to purchase any additional equipment, so if someone could help me with a software correction that would be great.

  2. extending monitors

    Hello,

    I hope I can help you today

    solote allow two monitors but here I leave this possible solution

    Step 1

    Connect a monitor to the normal video card, using the necessary cable (DVI, VGA or HDMI). This will be the main screen, so place it directly in front of your computer's cabinet.

    Step 2

    Connect the second monitor to the alternative port of the video card, and then restart the computer. The PC will automatically detect the second monitor.

    Step 3

    Go to the "Show options" window by right clicking on the desktop, then select the "Properties" option. From there, click on the second monitor (which will appear in the drop-down menu), and then activate the "Extend my desktop on this screen" checkbox.

    Step 4

    Connect the third monitor to your original video card (if it has three outputs) or to another video card, and then restart the computer one more time.

    Step 5

    Go to the "Show options" window by right clicking on the desktop, then select the "Properties" option. From there, click on the third monitor (which will appear in the drop-down menu), and then activate the "Extend my desktop to this screen" checkbox

    regards...

    Monitor extend

    I have an issue with monitor extend. When I tried to extend the monitor, the monitor didn't react properly, it looks like the monitor is freeze but the cursor is visible and you can moving the cursor but when I tried clicking on an object on the screen
    or use right click nothing happened. Other monitor projection works, when I tried to detect monitors, system see both monitors.

    I already tried update graphics, restart notebook (DELL Latitude) but nothing happened.

    3rd monitor doesn't connect

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    To better understand your query, kindly reply to the following questions.

    1. Did you try setting up the cables again?

    2. Did you try giving the recommended resolution and check if the monitor is detected?

    I would suggest you to make sure that the monitors are connected to the correct video port.

    However, you can go to the device manager and disable the monitor which is not working.

    Follow the steps below.

    • Press Windows key + X key and click on
      Device Manager.
    • Expand the Monitors.
    • Right-click on the monitor and select Disable.
    • After sometime, try re-enabling it and check if the device gets detected.
    Hope this helps. Please respond if you have further related queries.

    Regards,
