I just updated to Windows 10 and already having problems. I have a dual monitor setup and back on windows 8, both monitors had a good display. Now on windows 10, my main monitor has a blurry or less quality compared to my second monitor. It was always fine until I switched windows.
I've been running a multi-monitor setup for a while now, with an ASUS VG248QE 144Hz monitor as my main, and one or more spare monitors as secondary displays. I've set the ASUS monitor to 144Hz without issue in the past, while the other monitors stay at 60Hz.
The other night, Windows wanted to update. I figured it was the usual patch session, so I let it do its thing. However, after restarting my computer, I noticed that my ASUS monitor would only operate at 144Hz if it was the only monitor plugged into the system. When I try to set it higher in the Nvidia control panel, it just reverts back to 60Hz after applying changes. I updated my graphics drivers (though I was only one version behind) and even sought a special ASUS driver for the monitor to resolve the issue, but nothing has worked.
Did Windows recently add a forced refresh rate sync between all monitors recently? If so, that really sucks because I only own one 144Hz monitor.
I'm trying to adjust my snap/multitasking settings to keep all of the snap settings in Windows 10 except for the ones that try to snap windows to the side of one monitor when I try to drag it to the other monitor. Is there any way to disable the snapping between the two monitors while still keeping the snap settings of dragging windows to the opposite sides/top of the screen?
I've recently setup a secondary monitor, but the mouse simply wont lock into the screen where the game is being played (total war) and if i do end up clicking somewhere on the secondary monitor the game will be minimized which is bothersome, I have tried borderless and fullscreen but in vain.
Another issue I've had is that the secondary screen (1600x900) gets some flicker/lines whenever i use vga to connect it, but it works superb with dvi, why?
Now another thing is that when i move the mouse/cursor from the top right corner of the main monitor(1920x1080) it wont switch over to the secondary one(my idea being that the res/size is different).
This is probably the most painful issue I have with Windows 10 right now (and likely previous versions as well, but I didn't have a multi-monitor setup back then).
The monitors I have are as follows: 3840x2160 (4K UHD) monitor with preferred DPI: 144 (150%)1920x1080 (Full HD) monitor with preferred DPI: 96 (100%)
Whenever one of these monitors are set as primary, all desktop applications displayed on the secondary monitor (doesn't matter which) has blurry text. Exceptions are the Windows Store Apps like Windows Store and Microsoft Edge, along with the Taskbar/Start Menu, the Taskbar/Start Menu settings screen, the Taskbar context menu, and the desktop context menu which passes the DPI test with flying colours, with crispy text on both monitors (occasionally a DPI switch bug gets in, but I can mostly ignore that). The problem is, as you can probably guess, is that >99% of the applications I use aren't Windows Store Apps.
Here are some screenshots. The "Taskbar and Start Menu Properties" text is what the text should look like while the Visual Studio 2015 text is an example of the text most desktop apps get. The blurry image is what happens when the UHD monitor is not the primary monitor. Attachment 48493Attachment 48494 Note: Both of these screenshots came from the 150% DPI monitor so it's best viewed at that (144) DPI level. The 96 DPI monitor is similarly affected.
Things I've already tried: Reinstall the graphics driver. Did this multiple times in fact for unrelated reasons.Reinstall Windows 10 (through Reset This PC recovery option). I did this for also unrelated reasons but it definitely doesn't fix this issue.Use the XP Explorer "fix". Merely worsens the problem. Adjusting Clear Type options. Alleviates the issue a bit but see next point.Disabling Clear Type on the affected monitor. The text obviously sharpens, but it's painful to read and a close inspection of the text reveals the issue isn't solved at all, only mitigated slightly.Replacing the video card. I swapped this in with my older GTX 560 Ti but it's obvious the problem remains. Both it and my current card are NVIDIAs though, so it's vaguely possible the drivers or the cards themselves are the cause. I don't have an ATI/AMD card (that still works, at least) to test the setup and every Intel iGPU I have either has only one monitor output or is incapable of handling UHD resolutions.
Things I won't try: Setting both monitors' DPI to 96. Text would become microscopic considering the UHD monitor's actual size.Use the text resizing feature instead. I'm going take a wild guess that this is not monitor-specific and would cause everything on the HD monitor to be far too large to the point that I'd rather unplug it.
Looking for multi-resolution, multi-DPI, multi-monitor setup with or without this issue? The text is painful to read on whichever is the secondary monitor right now, and is extremely apparent whenever the background is dark.
So recently I upgraded to windows 10 at the same time I got a 4k display.When I set the display scaling to 150% on my main 4k monitor and ensuring that the scaling stays at 100% on my other two 1080p monitors, the entire chrome application is blurry when viewing on the 1080 monitors, and I cannot seem to fix this. Other applications seem to be okay.
Furthermore after the scaling change, some icons on my 1080 monitor's desktop get larger, as if some scaling is applied to them. Is there any solution to this? At the moment I have had to set the scaling back to 100% on my main monitor in order to use chrome on the smaller monitors.
I am running Windows 10, and trying to calibrate my monitor which is the #1 monitor on a dual monitor setup. I am using the Spyder 4 Express for calibration.
When I put the calibration device on my #1 monitor and go through the calibration process, it saves the new profile, but the new profile does not correct the #1 monitor, it is effecting the color of the #2 monitor.
Have a user with a Sony vaio laptop, 15" screen, 1920x1080. They also plug an HDMI cable into a 23" dell widescreen monitor for a second display. This 23" monitor is also 1920x1080. They are complaining that fonts on this second monitor are blurry. They tried to live with it a week but they said can it be made clear again like it was when they had Windows 7?
Are you familiar with the possibility of fonts being blurry only on one monitor if they are both set to the native?
I'm asking them to see if they change the font dpi to 100%, logoff and on if its any better. For whatever reason that seemed to work for my laptop (another Sony Vaio), but my concern is they will be disappointed at legibility on the laptop screen (it makes everything tiny).
I've installed Win10 on secondary HDD and I kept my WIndows 7 on different HDD.How do I setup dual boot?Each time PC reboots its loading only windows 10 without any dual boot.I can change the boot order in my BIOS but it would be great if I can do it via dual boot
I was running win 7 (64bit) pleasantly but decided to install Win10, did all the needed stuff for getting dual boot setup.Win10 booted fine, when selected from dual boot menu, but I have many issues on win10, Lenovo laptop is begging for mercy on win10 for many things, my android phone gets disconnected every few seconds if I use youtube, laptop becomes sluggish. USB3 will not install, which worked in win7 earlier.
Fed up with win10, even after disabling driver signature, making sure every driver is correct which I am installing, but this laptop hates win 10 as of now.Now if I choose to run win7, lappy reboots and thats a LOOP. my win7 installation is shown in Drive letter E: while windows 10 is shown in C: What would be the safest way of Re-installating win 7 on E: without loosing the following the crappy win 10 of c:/ dual mode option on win 7 +10
What I want is to run win7 setup which has SP1 integrated and still be able to boot in win10 if I needed later.I have activation keys for both provided by my office which is based on volume licensing.
Have my new Win 10 Pro system up and running...so far so good....except for networking ? However...I forgot to keep track of my passwords/acct records...etc for a number of programs on Win 7 that I am putting back onto Win 10...passwords...registrations keys...etc
Can I restore a full Acronis tib of Win 7 Pro and do a dual boot setup with the new 10....and how ?
I know it's not kosher to have both Win 10 new and the older Win 7 on the same PC because of the clean upgrade to Win 10...but I need it a short period to get into Win 7 to recover/find my passwords and registration info for a number of Win 7 installed programs to activate on Win 10
How do I go about setting up a dual boot 'temporarily' to recover needed information for my new Win 10 Pro install?
My taskbar is out of place when I connect the second monitor. I extended the view.
It happens now and then. I think it seems to be working fine until I install the internet download manager. But again it might just be my suspicion.
Once I plug out the second monitor, the taskbar goes back to normal. This issue is the same for the wall paper. When i connect, the wall paper will look ok on the laptop but looks cut away in the second monitor. Same thing goes, once I plug out it will go back to normal.
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad Edge with an Intel I5 processor, 64 bit with no hardware upgrades (stock). I had accidentally stepped on the screen (fell off my lap and then crunch) which was mangled beyond repair, so I have been using it similar to a tower, with a VGA and/or HDMI connected monitor (my HDMI cable went bad, I picked up a new cable but hadn't hooked it up to the second monitor. I started my free upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium to 10 last night. I woke up to the black screen/mouse pointer issue which is what brought me to this thread. I tried the recommended fix:
1. Hit ctrl, type in password and enter 2. Win Key + P + Down Arrow. (Win Key + P only seems to do the same thing)
This brought up options to
1. Disconnect projector (Tried this and lost connection to the VGA even after reboot) 2. Duplicate (Screen is still black with mouse cursor, but I saw a little bit of red and blue pixels at the bottom where the task bar should be until I disconnected and re-connected the VGA, then it was back to black screen and cursor) 3. Extend (still black screen and cursor) 4. Connect Projector (still black screen and cursor)
I'm not sure what to do. I must have some OS installed, because I am able to also perform these operations from my USB Keyboard/Mouse. I'm just not sure how to get Windows back on my VGA connection (I haven't tried HDMI because I did not have it connected when I ran the update.) I thought Duplicate displays would do the trick, but apparently not. For as beat up as the laptop is on the outside, the hardware performs fine. I also have a 2nd laptop (work laptop, also a Lenovo W541) that I can use if any solution involves downloading something bootable.
I've got a dual monitor PC running the now released windows 10. Everything about it went very smoothly, right up until I tried to change the background. At first both screens had the same image (that cool windows 10 logo with light beams picture). But of course that wasn't sufficient, so I changed it. I liked that windows 7 would rotate my wallpapers with pictures in my photo library. So I dug in and made the necessary changes, and.... then I hit an odd snag.
The two screens were showing different background pictures. At first it was cool! I was blown away. I never even thought about changing the wallpapers separately! But, I'm a creature of habit. And having that second monitor with a different wallpaper was getting on my nerves. Now, I know I can change both wallpapers to be the same picture. BUT, I'm greedy and want it all! I want it to also show the slideshow of all the photos.... one at a time, on both screens, at once.
On a side note, whenever I right click the desktop and ask windows to skip ahead to the next desktop background, it does one screen only. I have to do it again and then the other screen will change. If they HAVE to be separate, I'd at least like some control over them.
After upgrading to Windows 10, the "extend displays" function is not functioning well on my PC (ASUS monitors; ATI Radeon HD 2400 PRO display adapter). I have tried disconnecting & reconnecting and have tinkered with most related settings I am aware off, but all in vain.
I found a crude workaround accidentally. I restart my PC from the log in screen until the dual monitors start in the extended view (how this works!). It usually takes about two to three restarts.
I've just updated Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. It's pretty nice but I found that the text is a little blurry at some areas of the screen. Not everywhere but on some areas The resolution is 1366x768 - as it should be but I the text is blurry anyways. Here's an image:
I have a laptop. Acer e5-571g to be precise. So, i had a problem with an hdmi cable to tv - had no sound. Did a bit of research, tried some things out, nothing. Unplugged the cable and my screen icons went large, screen is blurry now. Drivers, i think, are up to date. Screen resolution is not the problem, icons are set to small. Restarted the computer too. Oh, and i have windows 10.
I was in Windows 10 setup using the Media tool. I have reached the step where it restarted then a big circle came up with three parts under saying like "Copying Files" and other two things. Then, suddenly it restarted and only a black screen was there. No cursor, sounds, screen. Now I am installing Windows 10 again but fearing the same will happen again. This is NOT a black screen at the log screen; I have not even finished the installation yet and get a black screen.
I upgraded to Windows 10. The entire screen shows up in about 75% of my monitor with the rest black. It's not that the fonts are too small, it's just that it makes my monitor look a lot smaller and I cannot seem to get it to fill up the entire monitor like Windows 8.
I have three computers wired to my D-Link DSL-504T modem/router.
Since upgrading two of my PCs to Widows 10 Pro (activated, clean install) I can no longer get reliable access to my routers configuration screen (192.168.1.1) through these PCs, although my third computer that is still running WinXP has no problem at all. Internet access on all three computers is unaffected and works perfectly.
The two W10 computers get to the router login screen, accept my username and password and then try and display the next status page whereupon the following happens:
Firefox: Stops with 'The connection was reset' error Edge and Internet Explorer: Sit waiting forever (or as long as I'm prepared to wait!) Chrome: Occasionally displays part of the status page, but mostly just sits there waiting.
The WinXP PC just sails along, displaying every page instantly and putting two fingers up to its more modern brethren!
I've reset the router and that makes no difference. I've turned off the Windows firewall and that makes no difference. It can't be my AV software (NOD32) as that is only running on one of the W10 PCs. I've flushed the DNS and tried just about everything I can think of and still the two W10 machines fail.
I am dual booting with Win7. I have not used 7 in a few months. I want to know if there is a way to delete and merge the partition that Win7 is on. Also I want to know how to get rid of the dual boot screen and just go with the reg Win10 boot screen.
Yesterday i got a second screen that is smaller than my main screen. I was playing csgo and hearing music at the same time and it was smooth. Today I got home and started to play csgo without music and csgo has like minor freezes like every 2-3 seconds it will freeze for a split second.
My PC specs are: core i5 4430 @ 3.00 Ghz 8 gigs of ram gainward geforce gtx 650
I am running csgo only on the main screen and not on both. The lags occur also on youtube.
