    Multiple Monitor Issue


    I have 4 identical monitors connected (Dell E1913). 3 of the 4 have settings:

    Desktop Resolution = 1440 x 900
    Active signal resolution = 1440 x 900
    Refresh rate (Hz) = 60 Hz
    Bit depth = 8-bit
    Color format = RBS
    Color space = Standard dynamic range (SDR)

    and yet...the 4th monitor will not allow the above settings and screen is blurry! The settings on the 4th monitor are:

    Desktop Resolution = 800 x 600
    Active signal resolution = 800 x 600
    Refresh rate (Hz) = 60 Hz
    Bit depth = 8-bit
    Color format = RBS
    Color space = Standard dynamic range (SDR)

    When I attempt to go into settings to change from 800 x 600 to 1440 x 900, the boxes are grayed out and will not allow me to change!

    Previously all four monitors worked find until the other day. Can anyone give me some tips as to how I can change the 4th monitor? Thank you in advance.

    :)

    Restore window issue in Window 10 1903 when extra Monitor

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    To have a better clarity on the issue and guide you accordingly, kindly help us with the following information:



    • Is the issue specific to DBeaver or does it happen on all the applications?


    The issue could probably be because of the secondary monitor not having its own taskbar. I suggest you to try the steps listed below and check if it works.



    • Right click the Taskbar on your primary monitor and choose Taskbar Settings.
    • Enable Show Taskbar on all the displays under
      Multiple Displays,
      and exit Settings.
    • Now, try restoring a minimized window to see if it works.


    Regards,

  4. Multiple Monitor Issue

    Issues while installing a second monitor in Windows 10

    Really? I get a canned answer and nothing else? I posted that I had tried everything that I could find posted online. I did read the post that Andre suggested multiple times prior to posting this request for help. None of it helped.

    My computer does not recognize that there is a second monitor is plugged in. The small step of changing the settings so I can put stuff on the second monitor ISN'T the issue. I am not that dumb. in the device manager there is only the single monitor listed
    at one point there was a unknown device listed but my computer did not know if it was a monitor or a printer.

    There has to be someone out there that knows how to fix this

    Please Help
