Second Display Issues

Mike Soda
 Share

For now I'm gonna have to go back to just one because what I'm experiencing is completely unusable. This is my first time trying multiple monitors so I'm extremely confused as to why it's acting this way & why it wont let me change or toggle between multiple desktops with alt tab or whatever key it should be. The grey bar on the HP S2031 is really annoying as well but I don't think it's damage to the monitor itself. Since if I bring up a window it just looks more like a slight grey tint & not dead pixels. I'm using Nvidia Display Driver 416.34.

I just unplugged it & went back to my single Acer V206HQL, everything looked okay though but I don't really know what I'm doing.

Nope I didn't touch any of that, I just want to be able to setup desktop 1 on my center Acer monitor to be primary & the HP for secondary desktop.

most of the time when I just plug in my monitors I always have to go mess with the settings to get them working right.

I just asked my friend & he said if I leave the HP on for a bit the grey part will go away. Although I still need to be able to change which monitor is 1 & 2 & set desktops up between the 2.

Okay I think I've figured it out but I'm wondering about something else now. I have my Acer V206HQL plugged in via DVI-D, while the HP S2031 is on a DVI-D to DisplayPort adapter cable. If I switched that around would there be anything to gain having that on my primary Acer display in gaming? I only ask because I think I remember reading somewhere that DP is faster than DVI-D.

when using an adapter I don't think it really matters. people use DP because you need DP for things like g sync/free sync to work.
