  1. HDMI Multiple Monitors Vexation


    I am developing a multiple monitor system. My computer has a single HDMI port so I will need to purchase a splitter of some sorts. I have become lost in all the jargon, technical specifications, and the wide range of prices.


    Here is my rough outline: one to three additional monitors with each having the capability of independent rotation between Portrait and Landscape, independent zoom, and maximum resolution for fine print text.

    Thanks for any suggestions and recommendations.

    :)

  2. Multiple screens via HDMI in Windows 10 blocked

    Hi Marion,

    Thank you for getting back to us.

    I would suggest you to connect with another HDMI cable and check if the issue persists. This is to confirm if the issue is with the system or with the HDMI cable.

    If the issue is not with the cable then, suggest you to install the driver for the display in compatibility mode by following the steps below:

    • Download the setup files for the driver and save it on your local disk.
    • Right click on the setup file of the driver and select
      “Properties”.
    • Select “Compatibility” Tab.
    • Place a check mark next to“Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.
    • Let the driver install and then check thefunctionality.

    Also, refer the link below for more information:

    (Also applies to Windows 10)

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

    Second monitor not working with HDMI

    Hi,

    I have a AOC monitor hp Pavillion laptop and while trying to connect to the monitor using a HDMI cord, nothing is displayed. Comes up with a No Signal info. I have tried multiple cords : HDMI - HDMI, HDMI - DVI , HDMI - VGA, nothing works. The monitor is
    not detected. I have another laptop on Windows 7 and and if I try to connect directly with VGA - VGA, it works, but does not work with HDMI from the same laptop. Basically, it does not work with HDMI at all.

    I have updated the latest graphics card, both nVidia and Intel, but no progress.

    If I use the same laptop and connect to my hd tv using the same cord it works, but does not work with my monitor. The monitor model is AOC e2450swh. It has support for HDMI. Even if I try to use a HDMI to VGA cord, still it does not display anything.

    Any suggestions would be really helpful.

    Thanks

  4. HDMI Multiple Monitors Vexation

    Dual Monitors going from HDMI to DP

    Hello,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are unable to connect two Dell E2216H monitors to your Dell Inspiron 3668. I suggest you to remove the signal cables (HDMI, DisplayPort, or VGA) which is connected to the monitor and then switch 'ON'
    the monitor, this will start monitor self-test and will show whether your monitor is able to display.



    If there are no issues with the monitor, I suggest you to update your display drivers. Refer the article on
    Update drivers in Windows 10 for
    steps to update your display drivers. You can also download the drivers from the manufacturer’s website. Use the following link to download the
    monitor driver,
    run the setup file and follow the onscreen instruction to install the driver.



    Also, try with a different (HDMI to DisplayPort) cable to connect the second monitor and check if it works fine.



    If the issue still persists, you can refer the link on

    How to Troubleshoot Multiple Monitor Issues
    and check if that helps.



    Hope it helps,

    Sandeep Kumar M
