Adding a monitor RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I keep adding on monitors to my PC whenever i am given one.

    I have two connected to my GPU (R7 370)
    And 2 connected to my Mobo (On integrated graphics Intel HD 4400)

    I just got another monitor. It's a small INSIGNIA television that i have hooked up to my GPU via HDMI. (It is saying the display is named NS-19E310A13)

    The only problem is, is that my computer wont let me connect it. 
    I use DisplayFusion for my monitor configuration. So when i go in and try and connect the new monitor, it says its disabled. And when i enable it, it shuts off another monitor. It also does this for Windows 7's default display configure-er.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?

  • You probably need to check the number of monitors supported by video card.

  • Hi,

    Please ensure all device connect to discrete graphics card, i.e. R7-370 Graphics Card.

    Also, press "Windows+P" to switch monitor.

  • As far windows are concerned there are no limits, but it totally depends on your hardware.

  • 4 monitors can be connected. 

    DVI, DVI-i, Displayport, and HDMI.

    I also connected the small tv to my mobo via HDMI and it is doing the same thing: Not letting me connect it.

  • You probably need to check with hardware manufacturer, they would be able tu guide you. As far as windows 7 are concerned, there are no limitations. 

    BTW, whats the hardware make/model ?
