  1. Extended displays preventing use of VR


    My VR was detected as a display before I disabled it, however, in order to run any VR game or VR Mode within any games settings, my VR needs to be in Direct Display Mode not Extended Display Mode which it is currently locked to with no way to change it.


    Windows 10 Pro x64 by the way running on a A$3,300 custom built system.


    This is the same question as previously described with Developer Mode not having a "Force HMD Displays into Direct Display Mode" setting this time around.

  2. no audio on extended display

    We would like to know more information from your end to know what is the next possible step that we can offer for you to resolve your issue.



    • Were you able to get an audio on your extended display before? Or is this the first time that you will set up an extended display with your computer?
    • Aside from the HDMI cable, have you tried using VGA cable instead to connect to your extended display?
    • Can you verify if you have any audio on your speakers if you are not connected to the extended display?


    We look forward to your reply.

  3. no audio on extended display

    Is your computer’s Operating System updated?

    How about your Audio drivers, can you check if it is updated and can support HDMI audio output?

    If your answer to those questions are yes, then you can check these steps to setup audio for your extended display:

    • Connect your laptop to the extended display using the HDMI cable.
    • On the lower right side of your task bar, right click on the Audio icon.
    • Select Playback device
    • If you don’t see your extended display (T.V) you can right click on a blank space on the Playback tab and select Show Disabled Devices and Show Disconnected Devices.
    • One your extended display (T.V) is showing, please check if it is enable.
    • Then Select OK.

    Do a test and check if the audio is now playing on the extended display, if issue still persists, try to restart your computer without removing the HDMI for both devices.

    Let us know how it goes.

    extended display windows 10

    Hi Marg,

    It is possible that your extended display was not detected after an update due to having incompatible display drivers. To efficiently assist you, we'd like to gather more information:

    • Which build and version of Windows 10 are you using?
    • Are you getting any error messages?
    • Could you tell us what troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    We're looking forward to your response.
