Multiple display(12 posts)
If you install graphics card then you can get dual display from its ports. If you want more than two displays then you need to try ATI's Eyefinity technology. Using this you can connect upto 6 displays. Have a look at the AMD Technical Article.
If your computer does not have a graphics card and you want to install a new one, make sure to upgrade the power supply depending on the power supply requirement of the graphics card.
Owen123: Thanks for the help. I got the concept of mirroring but can you elaborate what and how Extending display will do.
My computer has builtin VGA and so far I tried a PCI Video card. What happening by installing it is I can only get display through that PCI card and not able to get display through my builtin VGA. I am using Windows 7 on my PC. Kindly advise.
When you install a PCI Video card the onboard video card is disabled by default. However certain motherboards do support enabling the onboard video card along with a video card. You need to check in the BIOS, if it has the option to enable both.
Does the video card only have one connection? Most video cards today have multiple connections. You need to attach both monitors to the video card. Then check Screen Resolution settings. (Right click desktop.)
Try connecting one monitor at a time to the video ports, ie: first connect the monitor with VGA cable to the onboard video card port and then connect the other monitor to the PCI Video card port..
you need to add more detail to your question---are you mirroring? Or do u want one application to be stretched across 2,3,4 monitors (obviously that would look horrible.) Or would you just like dual screen?
