Community Article How to Daisy Chain DisplayPort Monitors — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › How to & Technical Guides › Software How to Daisy Chain DisplayPort Monitors TSAustinM admin April 2020 edited June 3 in Software This article will explain how to daisy chain multiple monitors with display port connections. Daisy chaining describes connecting devices one to another instead of each to the computer. You will need a graphics card with DisplayPort 1.2 as well as monitors with DisplayPort output. The last monitor in the chain does not need an output. On some monitors, DisplayPort 1.2 is an optional feature. If your monitor has this as an optional feature, be sure to enable it from the monitor’s on-screen menu. Refer to the monitor’s manual for instructions. Using a DisplayPort cable, connect your computer to the first monitor’s DP-in. Connect the next monitor by running a DisplayPort cable from the first monitor’s DP-out to the second monitor’s DP-in. Repeat step 4 until all monitors are connected Be sure to set your screen resolutions so as not to exceed the bandwidth of the single DisplayPort connection in use. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Paultrevor ✭ September 2020 in General Discussion We are trying to hook up 2 monitors and are using the hdmi port for the first one and cannot figure out where to plug the other in or what adapter to buy for it. Please help! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin September 2020 On the back of the computer, there are a few video ports about halfway down, horizontal. Those are the video ports on the GPU and they're what you'll want to use.  Like the example in this picture. The video card on your computer should have one HDMI and three DisplayPorts as far as I know, so if you don't have a DisplayPort monitor, you'll need an adapter to go from DisplayPort to whatever cable you have.  The ports might be covered with some kind of rubber cap, if so you can just take them out.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I was wondering about MC's Tier 2 builds - will MC update the bios for the Motherboard and Video Cards when assembling a new PC? The reason I ask is because some 3080Ti users are reporting the inability to see the BIOS on certain DisplayPort monitors without a vBios Update: https://forums.evga.com/RTX-3080-TI-FTW-ULTRA-Cant-see-BIOS-post-screen-w-DP-port-m3410892.aspx Thanks for the feedback! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TS_JosephF admin September 5 edited September 5 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/9416/question-about-tier-2-build-specifics We do not typically flash the VBIOS for GPUs. This is something that would need to be answered at the service desk in-store. It would depend on the store location and the technicians themselves 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook RJN ✭ September 6 Got it - ok, quick follow up - Will the Motherboard BIOS be updated? For example: The Asus ROG Strix X570-E Gaming ATX AM4 Motherboard supports the AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 3.7 GHz 12-Core Processor with BIOS version 2606. If the motherboard is using an older BIOS version, upgrading the BIOS will be necessary to support the CPU. Thanks again for the feedback. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin September 7 edited September 7 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/35880#Comment_35880 So with the tier 2 build, they install Windows, all drivers, and should be able to assist you with BIOS if needed.

Below are some links related to the giving you information on what parts you need for gaming pc. There is also a link dedicated to warzone and what pc parts are needed for this game. I recommend to look at the 2nd linke (pcgamer.com) and think about going with an AMD CPU build. Go with the Ryzen 5 3600, the B550, The RTX 3000 series gpu (3060, 3070 or 80), and go with 16gb of RAM if you can, depending on your budget. What is your PC build budget by the way? I've added a 3rd link to help you select your parts with MC to see your total cost. Don't forget to add your Operating System as well.

Do you need any peripherals and do you need Windows included in your budget? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Heaven ✭ March 12 I’m sorry I’m new to this whole thing. What would you mean by peripherals and windows not included. Also I have a alianware aurura r6 with a i5 I would like to increase the power and make it stronger to run 4K. What would you recommend me adding to it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 12 @Heaven just chiming in. Peripherals are items like your keyboard, mouse, external HDD, etc., but it sounds like you already have these with the Alienware r6. I'd say stick with the processor you already have in the Alienware, but maybe update your GPU to a GTX 1660 or better a RTX 2060. I believe you R6 should have 16gb of ram, you may want to upgrade the ram to 24-32gb, not needed but could help (see ram link below). Last you'll probably need to upgrade your Power Supply to 550watts.

Can do up to 3.5 ghz speeds which is fast for cpu chips still to this day.

Has your Alienware R6 drivers been updated lately? What video cable are you using, HDMI or displayport? What monitor do you have? All these things play a part into why your FPS are low.

We were able to remove the error but now have "DP NO SIGNAL" error. It's currently connected to an XBOX 1S. I've tried different HDMI, unplugging, plugging back in, etc and nothing has worked to get signal. How can I fix? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer Ian admin August 26 Accepted Answer Greetings. "DP No Signal" would mean you don't have a DisplayPort cable connected to the monitor and it's on the DisplayPort input/channel. If you are using an HDMI cable, you will want to verify the monitor is set to the HDMI Input by using the buttons found directly on the monitor to change it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers JBorka ✭ August 26 @Ian we've tried the buttons on the monitor and none of them will pull up any menu to change to HDMI. Screen just goes dark. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin August 27 edited August 27 @JBorka Discharge it and see if it'll autoscan. Turn both systems off. Unplug monitor, hold the power button on the monitor with the power cable unplugged for 30 seconds. Reconnect the monitor. Turn the PC on first, wait a few seconds, then power on the monitor. If that doesn't work, check the instructions here under "Your screen is blank after you turn on the console" - "Reset your display settings": https://support.xbox.com/en-US/help/hardware-network/display-sound/tv-or-monitor-screen-is-blank-while-connected This will put the console into low resolution mode and you can adjust from there. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JohnDaBeardWilliford Mayfield Store Associate August 31 Have you tried the monitor on a different system to make sure it isn't the issue (to make sure it isn't broken)? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

SapphireStar USA ✭ April 3 in Help Choosing Parts Building a PC for the first time, not really sure what I'm doing when it comes to picking parts I would be creating + editing, illustrations, paintings, and graphic designs with this PC. So it needs to be powerful enough to handle the Adobe collection, specifically Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. I don’t currently create or design in 3D and don’t plan on using this build for any kind of 3D modeling or rendering in the future. My budget is $1,400 USD. There’s not a lot of wiggle room there. However, I have plenty of extra keyboards, mice, and graphics tablets lying around that I won’t need to include in the budget. However, I don’t know that much about monitors, and color accuracy is a huge priority to me, so if y’all have any recommendations on those I'm interested in reading them. I put together a build in the link below, please feel free to make suggestions https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=bf2279e2-0749-4a04-85ac-95bd1d386324 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin April 3 Greetings. Looking over everything there, it does look pretty solid. It looks like you have an ATX sized case picked out and a mini-ITX motherboard, you could save yourself a good bit on that budget by swapping over to a full size board such as https://www.microcenter.com/quickViewConfigurator2020/623730/asrock-z490-pro4-intel-lga-1200-atx-motherboard Switching to a board like this wouldn't cut any features and would save you about $90. You can probably come down on the power supply wattage to something around a 650-750W supply and save some there too. You wouldn't run into issue with a supply of that wattage. Is the monitor a part of your budget? We can definitely make some suggestions on that. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SapphireStar USA ✭ April 6 Hi Ian, thanks for responding. Your recommendation sounds good, I have already updated the list to include the full-size ATX motherboard you mentioned. That's a good question about the monitor. I believe I have an older monitor in storage that I could use for the moment to not strain the current budget, but I would need to double-check before assuming that I still have it. 🤔 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 6 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/30732#Comment_30732 You're welcome! As for the monitor, for design work, I'd start by taking a look at the following: https://www.microcenter.com/product/624528/asus-proart-display-pa248qv-241-wuxga-75hz-hdmi-dp-vga-freesync-pre-calibrated-ips-led-monitor or the 27" version: https://www.microcenter.com/product/624539/asus-proart-display-pa278qv-27-wqhd-75hz-mini-displayport-hdmi-dvi-d-displayport-freesync-ips-led-monitor 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook SapphireStar USA ✭ June 15 Thank you so much for your response @Ian If something on my list is out of stock, would it be easier to wait for parts to come back into stock, or pick a new part? 🤔 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin June 15 @SapphireStar just chiming in. It depends on how soon you want the build completed. Its better to have all you parts and your system be built all under one take, instead of returning to have an out of stock item installed. If you can wait until you have all your parts, then go that direction. If can't wait, then when a part is in stock. bring your build back to the store for installation. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

However, I'd recommend going with a newer generation CPU as the 2700X that you've selected will bottleneck your performance in some titles. I've made these changes to the build list above. Please let me know if you have any questions about this! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Kudasai_sama95 ✭ March 17 Would going with a Ryzen 7 3700x be a better option. I made the decision to have someone build my pc. The company doesn’t have that AMD available.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 17 @Kudasai_sama95 just chiming in. The 3700x is faster than the 2700, but not by a lot. To determine which is better for you system, either chip is great for your build.

I find it stunning how poor the options are, especially with so many folks working from home. I'm hoping for dual monitor support between a desktop and a laptop; both are Dells. I'd like 4K support; 60Hz, not 30Hz. (Admittedly I'm fairly naive on the value of the refresh rate but I believe 60Hz is important for the well being of your eyes so I'm bewildered as to why I find 30Hz units.) My work laptop has HDMI and DisplayPort, but my desktop PC only has HDMI and DVI. My main monitor has HDMI and DisplayPort but my secondary only has DVI and VGA. I could upgrade my secondary monitor but I don't want to update my desktop PC yet. ...Then again, maybe I could find an affordable video card with both ports... Since my desktop PC doesn't have DisplayPort, I presume I'm not a candidate for the TESmart KVM switch with its ridiculous redundancies. I have wasted so many hours circling back on the same models. Any chance someone out there has found some obscure model that works for them? I would be so grateful to hear from you. Thanks in advance. -Dan 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin June 8 Greetings. Which Micro Center store would you be nearest to so we can see what they may have available? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Chenyao_Xue Columbus_Bethel Store Associate June 8 I would say stick with HDMI KVM switches since you don's have any DisplayPort on your desktop, and you can easily convert HDMI to VGA or DVI with inexpensive choices. Microcenter does not carry much options for dual monitor HDMI KVM switches, so an off brand one from online might be your best option. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

I only recommend an Anti-Sag Bracket on Video Cards that are triple fan and extremely long.  Video Cards like the ASUS ROG Strix OC Edition or the EVGA FTW3.  Both are big and long cards and can sag.  Your 2060 Ventus pick is two fan and shouldn't need an Anti-Sag Bracket.   Your monitors will come with DisplayPort Cables.   For Windows, get Home unless you plan on doing business related stuff with your system.  Keyboards and Mice are pretty personal preference and there isn't like super big recommendations.   Buildwise, everything looks good, no issues with the build and it looks good!   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

About the Bios update do I need to install each one individually or just the last one? I just installed the last one. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin February 21 @Lui21 is your monitors still losing signal or audio when using the computer? If so, try these steps. Use the link below, download and install your chipset drivers ("intel Chipset Drivers). Just click on the down arrow and execute the installation file, follow the installation wizard instructions. Once its installed, then test your system, watch YouTube or try to get the monitors to give you no signal. Basically try to replicate your issue after the chipset driver. Don't worry about how the graphic card is performing, you are just testing how your system is functioning after the chipset driver update. Launch a game as well. :Click on System & Chipset Drivers https://www.msi.com/Motherboard/support/MEG-Z390-ACE#down-driver&Win10%2064 If you are able to replicate the issue, then try updating the bios. Read these instructions first on how to update your bios. You'll need a usb thumb drive as well. https://us.msi.com/support/technical_details/MB_BIOS_Update Once you are done reading the instructions and understand how to update your bios. then click on the down arrow for version 7B12v1A and save it to USB. Finish out the BIOS update steps from the link. After this update, test your system again. Watch Youtube, launch a game, etc., to see if these updates have fixed anything. If not comfortable with following these steps or they do not work, bring your system to the store for our techs in the store to run a diagnostic on it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I just got my 3070 Fe a day ago and I tried running Cyberpunk 2077 and for some reasons FPS dipped to 15-25 and average fps was 30-45. My CPU is Ryzen 7 1800x and I game on 1080p. Can anyone help me with Ideal settings for the game or is my Gpu faulty? Or is it bottlenecking? FYI I played on Raytracing Medium with film grain off and DLSS on Ultra Performance. Kindly Help Thank You 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin December 2020 Hello @Medish thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. Cyberpunk 2077 has known issues. Have you tried uninstalling Cyberpunk and reinstalling it from scratch? We're assuming you are connecting to your monitor with a Displayport cable. How much memory do you have installed in your system and what is your motherboard that you have? It could be Cyberpunk or your CPU is bottlenecking with the Cyberpunk settings you are playing on. The Ryzen 7 1800x may not be the best CPU for this game. A Ryzen 3 or Ryzen 5 may be a better CPU for this particular game. You also need at least, as recommended for best performance; 16 gb of RAM installed. That could play a part in any bottlenecking your system is experiencing with Cyberpunk if you have less than 16gb of RAM. Take a look at this link below as the Cyberpunk 2077 game settings. Reduce some things in the settings such as the field of view, etc. and see if the frames go up a little. If the settings changes doesn't help, then its probably the PC components in your system that's not fully supporting Cyberpunk 2077.  Link: https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/12/11/cyberpunk-2077-the-best-settings-to-improve-your-pcs-performance/  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Medish ✭ December 2020 I have 16 gigs of dual-channel memory but even with ray tracing off on medium settings preset of game I am having 45 max which also dips to 15 fps sometimes. My Mobo is Asus Strix B350 gaming F 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin December 2020 @Medish have you updated your 3070 drivers? If not try that. If you have already updated the drivers then try uninstalling the 3070 from device manager and then reboot your system so windows reinstalls it. That should reset it and then see if you are still getting low Frames. Also try lowering the crowd density to its lowest setting in cyberpunk, then test it out. Last thing, when was your motherboard purchased? The reason I asked is the Rog strix has a 08/25/2020 chipset driver update. If your board was purchased before August, 2020, you may not have the most up to date chipset driver for your motherboard. Chipset drivers help the motherboard to communicate with your hardware (ex., graphic card). Let us know the results. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook StormSniper_ ✭ December 2020 Or, is your airflow good enough? The GPU will not do well on it without airflow. I think you should have one fan blowing intake to the GPU's direction. Because of Nvidia's Blow through design, you need to have it on the top left blowing down, on the left/right blowing the air to the card, or the bottom, which is where the best airflow comes from. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

This worked well on my W7 machine, but after transferring to a W10 machine, the display is black on DisplayPort and normal on HDMI. This is a problem because I want to add a second display that has only HDMI. Likely this is some sort of EDID issue. How do I approach this? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Comments Ian admin April 19 Hello, does the graphics card only have 1 DisplayPort slot? Have you tried a different DisplayPort cable? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 19 There are three DP and one HDMI. Card works fine with this cable and monitor in W7 machine. I tried two of the three DP outputs. On the W10 machine the display locks up to the point that I cannot use the monitor controls when the DP input is connected to the monitor. Obviously, I cannot flip back and forth between the machines in an instant. My thought is that the DP EDID is mixed up on the W10 machine, but I did not expect that the monitor would lock up. Monitor allows flipping between DP 1.1 and 1.2. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 19 edited April 19 Starting with the DP cable disconnected from the monitor, HDMI is OK. If I then insert the DP cable and select the DP input, the monitor locks up until I remove the DP connection. There is no difference if I make or break the DP connection at the computer or monitor. There is an odd W10 reaction as I make the DP connection. At this point both HDMI and DP are connected, but I am viewing HDMI. Shortly after (about a second) I make the DP connection all of the open windows are minimized. If I then remove the DP connection all of the open windows are restored. At the instant I connect DP, before the open windows are minimized, there is a flash of something (lines of white text on black) in the upper left. I don't recognize this flash. This desktop, with all windows now minimized seems stable. If I then select the DP input, the monitor is black and will not respond to controls until I disconnect one end of the DP cable, at which time the previous desktop it fully restored. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 19 edited April 19 In case you are wondering,I also powered down the monitor, connected only the DP, and restarted the monitor. I still have a black screen and locked monitor controls. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin April 19 @Builder I'd try to discharge the monitor and give the system a chance to detect it and read the EDID data. There were issues Maxwell GPU's related to DP, but I believe it only created an issue outside the OS and was relegated to DP 1.3/1.4. That's been a while and Nvidia did provide VBIOS updates to correct the issue. Please tell us more about the specs on the system, the brand and model of the card. What driver version are you running? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 19 edited April 19 It's an MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX950. W10 Pro 64bit. NVIDIA driver version 466.11 (standard) DirectX runtime 12.0 FWIW: I've been using 3840 x 2160 for several years on W7 DP and recently on W10 HDMI. This is the display's native resolution. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 19 I let the monitor sit, unpowered, not connected for about 40 minutes, then connected the DP -- black screen, no response to monitor controls. After removing the DP and inserting HDMI, response is normal. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 19 @Builder just chiming in. Are you using a custom build PC? if so what motherboard do you have? If its a pre-build pc, what is the make and model of your system (ex., Dell, HP, ASUS, etc.)? Also have you updated the GTX950 with the windows 10 driver? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 19 edited April 19 Custom build (by me) Gigabyte X570 Aorus Ultra, AMD Ryzen 7 5800X I have not specifically updated the GTX950 firmware and it does not seem that MSI provides any firmware updates. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 19 @Builder try this link below.

Another option to think about. You can always bring your system to the store and our techs there can take a look at it. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 20 @TSTDavey Your link does not lead to my card. https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us leads to a page that offers my card. I already have the suggested driver installed. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 20 @Builder not sure if you are clicking on the link I provided, but the link didn't take me to the link you provided. Can you give us a screen shot of what driver version your computer (Windows) says your GTX 950 is on? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin April 20 edited April 20 @Builder not sure how you got to the link you provided, but your card is still able to be selected and searched for off the link you somehow got to from my link. You could change the download type to Studio Driver. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 20 edited April 20 @TSTDavey Curious, your link leads here: Anyway, their site offers me inconsistent search results. Studio driver was not offered, but If I took the beta path offered sometimes I was lead to some stale drivers from 2017 and 2018, but eventually I was lead to 466.11 (Dated 4/14/2021) and this is what I have installed and it is WHQL. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 20 Yes, I borrowed a DP cable and the results are the same. It is curious that the results are slightly different if I change ports on the video card. One DP port prevents the monitor from auto sensing an input, the screen remains black. The other two ports will allow the monitor to sense the HDMI input and switch to it after a while. Remember that this card and this monitor worked flawlessly on the W7 machine. I'm still speculating that this is an EDID issue, but I have not found any resources to deal with this. It could be that I can copy a setup string from the W7 machine, but I don't know where to look. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin April 20 @Builder I would try this. Set your DP to 1.2 first. Then connect both the DP and HDMi cable to the system, it'll detect two monitors this way. Once this is done, check the Nvidia Control Panel and see if it's detected. If not, switch it to DP 1.1 and check again. if it's detected properly, it should work and you can disconnect the HDMI cable. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 20 @TSMikeW maybe we have learned something. The DP connection is recognized as existing (1 of 2), but I cannot select it. DP 1.1 or 1.2 does not seem to make any difference. Something varies and correlates with the timing of inserting cables in the display card and which port I use. The central DP seems to work best. If I briefly remove the DP connection at the display card the DP connection might be recognized as active. This is DP1.2 Some progress. I wish that I knew exactly what has changed. Unfortunately, the Samsung monitor, Screen 2, is black. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 20 @TSMikeW More progress. I'm am exploring the idea that there is an intermittent connection at the display card HDMI port. Notice that the Refresh rate is now 60Hz. I did not make any overt changes to the refresh rate. As I write, I have a desktop displayed on the Samsung. (Display 2) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin April 21 @Builder Preferably its should be 60. Display 1 is black and varying the refresh rate makes no impact on it? Does your card have 3 Display Ports and if so, have you tested multiple ports using this method? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 21 Yes, there are three DP's and the center port seems to work better. Prior to the DP coming online I could not make any changes to the 30Hz refresh rate. Now the Samsung offers 50-58-60. Since I'm not attempting to pass NTSC or PAL data through the system, I see no point for anything other than 60Hz. As of this writing, both displays are still working. I have not yet been through a sleep or power down cycle. For some reason the system is ignoring my sleep settings. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin April 22 @Builder Lets try a few commands to see what's keeping it awake. From an elevated command prompt type: powercfg -requests Let us know what that returns. Then lets generate an energy-report. powercfg -energy This will create an HTML file in System32, we'll ask you to upload this. Should tell us what is keeping the system awake. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Builder ✭ April 23 Odd response to my copy and paste from CMD and the file attach.

You'll want to display this file as a web page because file upload does not accept .html files. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin April 26 @Builder The energy report confirms there's a request made from Firefox for audio, and that is keeping the system awake. I'd task kill Firefox to confirm. Make sure the process isn't running in the background. We also see the USB inputs keeping the system awake. What happens when you put the system to sleep via the start menu? Also, what CPU do you have?

Having trouble targeting a docking station for a new home office set up. Have three laptops (all different OEMs), all with 3.0 USB and USB-C port options. Have two Asus monitors with HDMI, DVI and DisplayPort ports/options. Looking for extended monitor capability across the two monitors. Ideally, would have passthrough charging capabilities to avoid having to worry about the chargers, and an on/off toggle on the station as to avoid opening the laptop every time. Currently use HP USBC Dock G4 at work and I like that; however, all work products are HP, so compatibility is uniform and not a worry. Welcome thoughts and advice. Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answer Ian admin September 24 Accepted Answer Thank you for the information. I am not aware of any docking stations with a power / wake up button, but you could wake the PC up from sleep with a mouse etc. plugged into the docking station. I would look over the following options, they should meet your other requests with some minor differences between each model: https://www.microcenter.com/product/639565/iogear-usb-c-ultra-slim-docking-station-with-power-delivery-pass-thru-delivery https://www.microcenter.com/product/618573/manhattan-usb-c-11-in-1-triple-monitor-docking-station-with-mst https://www.microcenter.com/product/483723/iogear-compact-usb-c-docking-station-with-pd-pass-thru 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Ian admin September 23 Greetings, which Micro Center store would you be nearest to? I would just like to make sure when we are making our recommendations they have the items available. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook PoliPuter ✭ September 24 Thank you!  I'm in the Washington, DC area.  Rockville, MD or Fairfax, VA would work fine.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook PoliPuter ✭ September 25 Thank you!  Appreciate the recommendations!  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin September 27 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/36356#Comment_36356 You're welcome, please let us know if you have any other questions. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook PoliPuter ✭ September 29 Hi there. One additional question.   Picked up the Manhattan dock. But noting it has no USBC power source/adapter. On other docks, I could use my laptop charger, but that isn't an option here due to incompatible adapter connection.   Any recommendation for a USB C plug to power the dock, that won't fry laptops?   Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin October 1 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/36438#Comment_36438 Perhaps I misunderstood the specs when I was viewing this item, to clarify it's making you use the USB-C port on the docking station directly to charge? If so you should be able to use a USB-C to USB-C cable to do that. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 32 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 812 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 104 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
