I have a graphics card on this
computer and also an on-board integrated graphics (card) and now I have connected two
monitors with a graphic card and connected another monitor to the
integrated graphics card. so we have the Port over here. just
have a quick look. so we can see this is the on-board integrated (card)
connector. and lower part here we use the HDMI digital to VGA adapter, so we
connected the two monitors from the graphics card. and we connected
one monitor to the integrated graphics card. and there is
another port of the integrated (card), so that maybe we could connect four monitors with
the graphics card and integrated graphics (card).
and now the problem we have is that the only graphics card is enabled and the
integrated (graphics card) is not working. There is no display. I think we needed to do some
setup to the BiOS. so we can try that by restarting and press the F2 key to get
into the BiOS mode. now let's do that. so now let's restart the computer. let's
restart. Press the F2 key when it's restarting.
so now we are in BIOS. so in the BIOS, this is the easy mode. in the easy
mode, we can't do much in the easy mode. Let me see, this is normal, this is about the
performance, that's normal. so we need to get into the advanced mode. so this is
a Asus motherboard. we go to advanced mode.
under advanced mode, okay. now we're in the advanced mode. this is
basic information. maybe we go to advanced here. we go to Advanced tab
here, yeah system agent configuration. yes, we
have the graphics configuration and the short Cut, we have this menu as
well. and memory, we don't need to do anything about memory. this ,
Northbridge PCI Express configuration. I think in this graphics
configuration, and for the primary display, we have Auto set here. let's see
the options. okay so we have the primary display Auto, and integrated graphics
processor unit, and a PCI Express. so Auto means if the computer find the graphics
card installed to PCI E, and then the computer will use that as the primary
display. and integrated, we can make this as the primary display. and let's try
if we can enable that. so we change this primary display to integrated. now I
think we can exit. yeah we have to save the change
and the reset. yeah this is the change summary: what we're trying to change is the
primary display changed from Auto to IGPU. so that what we want to do, click yes.
now we are seeing there that monitor is having something displaying. okay that
monitor connected to the integrated (card). but it seems that these two monitors not
working at a moment. the monitor has a lock icon, that's the monitor problem, so
we're going to deal with that later on, so it is not Windows problem. yeah it
seems so this... All displaying! okay so this is the monitor, that's another monitor, this
monitor is displaying, that monitor, it seems there're going to be something coming
We have this monitor graphics, and we have the other two monitors, seems
they are all on. Maybe we are just waiting for start. so
it's a still starting. okay, so now all the three monitors seem working.
so now we have got three monitors working, that's great!
so with the three monitors you can drag different component, different window
to different monitor. let's try this web browser, still starting, so now we
have opened three browser web browser windows, so three windows we can drag
different window to all other screens. to drag, you just put your your mouse
pointer there, (click and hold) and you just drag to the right ,so you can see it's getting into
there, so this is getting into the second, so you release the mouse (button) so this display
will get there.
so let'sdrag another one.
so we have, this is the number one, number two, number three, we can arrange
it in any order. so now we drag this a second screen over to the second monitor,
so we get into the second monitor, drag the window, you can see, it's getting from
there, so we can arrange it later on. now you can, of course, you can maximize to
the full screen mode, and getting back from here
full screen mode. and this one, if you like, you can get full screen mode as well.
so that you can have three monitors display three screens of a web
browser. you can use other applications running on different monitors.
Another thing: so you can change the resolution of different screens.
and maybe the order of the screens. let's try to do that. and we just minimize this,
and then we go to the settings, so we have here, All Settings, yes it's going to
there, to the second screen, whatever. okay so we moved to the second
screen, so we have the "System Display", so we get into there. so now we have the one, two,
three, display. if we press "Identify", so that's the one, two, three. if we say (click) "Detect",
we have no more, we just have one, two, three here. and for each of these, we have
"Settings". like, we can change the resolution. so this is a recommended and
the highest, so we don't need to change that. And the Orientation: you can also change,
you can put the screen the other way, so turn it 90 degree and make it
vertical. so this is the number one. Number two: yeah number two selected, and all the
properties should be for number two. so Number two I think it is the TV,
so the recommended is this resolution. you could try the other resolutions. so the
highest resolution seems to be this.
try that. and the third one:
yeah it's the highest resolution, we are using the third one.
I think you can change to the order, that you can change the number one over there.
yeah if we press "Identify", we see that's number one, this is number three, that one is
number two. so if we want to work with the sequence, because it's number one,
three, two, so their identifications: one - three - two, so we should
make this also one - three - two.
