    Dual Monitor Setup?


    I have a dell xps 9550 laptop that i connect to an external monitor as my primary monitor. Its syncmaster t240 hd and its 24' and 1920 x 1200 resolution. I have an old asus 24' monitor that a while back no longer worked... it stopped working and i brought it to a few repair shops and they said it no longer works.


    I recently turned it on and surprisingly works. i connected it to my laptop via hdmi to hdmi cable and it works just like it would with my samsung syncmaster.


    This is the asus 24 monitor i have that is 1920 1200 resolution.

    https://www.amazon.com/ASUS-VS24AH-P...itor+1920x1200


    I want to be able to do dual monitor. Currently my laptop screen is extended to my primary monitor and i use it for youtube etc but do everything on big screen.


    I only have one hdmi port on my dell laptop. So how do i do dual monitor setup? Also i assume i could do triple monitor setup with my laptop screen as the 3rd screen? I rarely would use that one though. I want to use 2 of these monitors i have and be able to drag things from one monitor to another.


    The other thing though i notice is when i connected hdmi to hdmi from laptop to asus, there is no sound at all. I think this possible is due to it being damaged from a while back? Again, back then monitor completely stopped working. But now it worked. How do i fix the sound if i could? If i can't fix it, could i still use it as a 2nd monitor with the samsung syncmaster monitor as my primary monitor? Also this asus monitor has like dark spots throughout the screen. I used a wet one to wipe the screen but apparently those dark marks are inside the screen it seems. I googled and apparently this is water inside that caused it? That isn't that big of an issue but there are lot of these spots. But i want to be able to use a dual monitor setup. And if the sound doesn't work on this asus monitor, would the sound work when im using a dual monitor setup where i make the samsung the primary screen?


    What do i need to buy to do this. I have one hdmi cable. I also have a vga to vga cable and hdmi to vga cable that came along with the asus monitor.


    Thanks.

    :)

    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.

    Dual Monitor Setup?

    Dual monitor, Dual mouse??

    Hello,

    Please share this information to assist you better.

    • How have you setup dual monitors?
    • Are you referring to use 2 different mouse/keyboard with the dual monitor setup?
    If yes, the mouse or keyboard may function same as one another. Since, it has to be connected to single PC/tower.

    However, setting up 2 different mouse/keyboard with the Dual- monitor setup, it may not function separately for each monitor.

    Let us know the status of the issue. We will assist you further.
