Multiple screens RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I have a problem setting my multiple screens. One that i had works perfectly. My father gave me his old one and when i connect it to the video card the computer recognizes it, but the other screen wont come up it stays in power save mode. I went to screen resolution and detected the other screen my mouse cursor seems to go there but it wont work when i push the button on the screen it just says press a mouse button or any keyboard button to exit that mode but it does not work can you help please?

    P.S.

    This is my first time doing it so i might have done something wrong but i do believe that it is connected correctly i believe it has something to do with the settings.

    Thank you very much,

    Zoki

  • Hi,

    I suggest you upgrade your video adapter.  Besides, please lower your refresh rate.

    Please right-click on the desktop, and select the ScreenResolution option. (Screen Resolution->Advance Settings->Monitor->screen flesh rate)

    If the issue persists, please confirm the compatibility of the video adapter.

    Hope that helps.

    try this: right click on Desktop - Screen resolution - here you can setup your second screen.
