    computer is registering 3 monitors when i have 2 - BIOS wont open on startup


    so, my display settings randomly changed by itself and cooked my display i have dual monitors. I've managed to fix that but it still says i have 3 monitors for some reason?
    some applications keep opening on the 3rd window and i have no idea how to fix this. i want to get rid of the 3rd monitor - > i was told that i the motherboard has an inbuilt graphics card that could be causing this, but when i try to open BIOS it doesnt work because my computer starts up too fast, it just exits immediately. This never happened before. I didn't update anything, i woke up one morning and it was completely **** and im super pissed off lol

    :)

  2. i have a problem to connect 2 monitors.

    Hi Ron,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    • What changes did you make in the BIOS? As making the changes in the BIOS is only recommended by Microsoft if done by the manufacturer.
    • How are you connecting to the 2nd monitor?
    I suggest you to follow the steps from this article below:

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows-8/how-connect-multiple-monitors

    [Applies to Windows 10 as well]

    Regards.

  3. access BIOS settings in Win 10

    I have an 8-year old computer running Win 10. I need to access the BIOS settings. It used to be the holding down the F2 key during startup would bring up the BIOS screen in Windows computers. But this no longer works. A web article listed a complicated
    series of steps leading to a reboot . . . but still no access to BIOS. Any suggestions?

    Win 2016 word automatically launch on Windows 10 startup

    I have tried these two options below but they did not work.Any Ideas----------------- Steps to disable startup programs in Windows 10:
    NOT IN START UP FOLDER


    1. Step 1: Click the lower-left Start button, type msconfig in the blank search box and choose msconfig to open System Configuration.
    2. Step 2: Select Startup and tap Open Task Manager.
    3. Step 3: Click a startup item and tap the bottom-right Disable button.
    I have done this in reverse and it does not work—meaning I took out word short cut

    First, create a shortcut of the Document and place it on (say, Desktop).

    Then, go to the following location:

    Your Drive:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

    Drop your Shortcut into the Startup folder. However, when you cold boot your computer, your Desktop will first show up and then a few seconds later the Doc should appear.
