by on April 9, 2013

I just want to know, Can it harm or effect my computer by doing this?

How come I have to disconnect my second monitor for my power splitter to work? 

by on May 30, 2012

Q: I run windows 7 x64 with dual monitors. Me and my girlfriend like to watch movies in bed so I purchased a VGA splitter so that I could connect the TV to the computer.

This worked great, besides the screen being slightly darker than normal.

I then bought a powered VGA splitter to get rid of the darkness issue. Unfortunately the TV now says `No Signal`.

The strange thing is, if I disconnect the left PC monitor (the one that isn’t being split) then the TV receives signal again.

I could really do with a solution that does not mean always switching wires, my girlfriend is disabled so she can’t switch them herself.

Thanks very much.

by on December 11, 2010

Q: I’m trying to set up dual monitors for this old computer I have lying around. It’s a Compaq Presario SR1000 with a ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Graphics Card.

Can I run dual monitors? 

by on August 13, 2010

Q: System:
Gigabyte’s GA-K8N Pro-SLI Socket 939 motherboard, AMD Athlon 64X2 38+ Manchester 90nm, PNY – NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT 1GB GDDR3 PCI Express Graphics Card using HDMI out, 2 GB OCZ Dual Channel@168 MZ (2-3-2-5) ram
Monitor: LG E2340

Windows XP Pro SP3
Gaming, video editing. I know this setup maybe on the low side for this but it is sufficient for my uses at this time
Can I run dual identical monitors (both in HDMI mode) with this setup as is or
1. Do I need to add a second identical video card to enable SLI? or
2. Is the combination of video cards simply overkill and this processor will be over whelmed?
