Windows 7 HP Pavilion DV7 w/ second monitor attached via RGB.Windows 10 upgrade wizard said everything was fine.Upgrade took >90 minutes. Second monitor no longer works on my laptop. (No monitor works - tried different cables, different monitors.)Contacted Samsung for support on monitor. Downloaded updated video driver.Rebooted.Windows 10 now won't boot. No system recovery options.
It worked fine in windows 7 but now when I choose "duplicate display" from the side menu popup the tv goes blank as if Ive unplugged the hdmi. All 3 of the remaining display options work including the extend display and tv only setting so its not a cable issue. Laptop model is XPS 17 L702X. Now when I used to do it in win 7 sometimes it wouldnt autodetect it so I would have to right click desktop, open invidia up and click rigorous display detect or something like that and then laptop screen would blink and make the beep noise like when hdmi cable got connected. Now in the invida panel it just simply wont allow mirroring, nothing happens when I right click on the display box that would normally show 1 and a smaller box would say 2. I dont get it but Id really like that feature back If its something simple I could do.
MSI R9 390 GPU AMD Catalyst version 15.7.1 Main monitor is CrossOver QHD270 via Dual Link DVI Second display is a Vizio TV via HDMI/DisplayPort
So I was messing around with a 3 display setup for the first time today, one monitor (DVI) and two TVs (one HDMI, one DisplayPort). Everything worked okay, and I could unplug one TV, but when I unplugged the second TV, my monitor went to a black screen. As soon as I plugged the TV back in, the monitor started working again. The main monitor I use every day is now completely dependent on a TV I occasionally use as a second display to be plugged in to function. When I turn on the computer with just the monitor plugged in, I can see the BIOS load up, and the first Windows 10 logo, but as soon as the password screen should be shown, the screen goes black. I tried uninstalling my graphics drivers. When the drivers were completely uninstalled, the monitor functioned normally, but as soon at AMD Catalyst Control Center was reinstalled, it went black until the TV was plugged back in. I've tried plugging the TV up through HDMI and DisplayPort, it makes no difference. Also, my monitor is listed as the main display in both CCC and Windows 10 display settings. Every once in a while when I unplug the TV, the Monitor will get darker and slowly fade to black instead of going straight to black.
I upgraded to windows 10 on my desktop pc on july 29th and haven't had any problems since. I know that upgrade/updates are forced to happen so when random issues occurred today I feel that maybe there was an update sent out? My ethernet no longer works, only to connect outside my LAN, but I can still remote desktop and access the computer so the port/cable still work and the router works for all other comps over ethernet. The internet goes in for a split second when I reset the adapter but then instantly goes out. I also noticed when launching a steam game the xbox controller no longer works to control it despite it working yesterday and the controller will control steam itself just not the games. Should I downgrade to windows 8.1 again, since I don't have internet anymore any fixes wouldn't even reach my computer?
I have and Alienware laptop which automatically updated last night. I woke up and turned it on and it tells me my PC has been updated. When it comes all the way on everything is back to normal until i go to listen to music. This is when i realized no sound is working. I plug in my headphones and sure enough, it starts to work, but when i unplug them it does not work. I've gone through all the settings and stuff and i cant figure out what the problem is.
Prior to W10 I had a network NOT using Homegroup. Network worked who needs it? Now, I see some of my devices on the network, but when I try to share files I get a window requesting user name and password. Never used passwords before. I think Homegroup is sneaking in there, but all the devices say they don't have a Homegroup but some of them say the see a Homegroup on other devices. I've disabled Homegroup on all devices tried changing advanced network settings to no avail.
My numeric keypad no longer works with the update. I had to manually remove the ELAN keyboard in order to get my letters and top row numbers working, but the keypad still isn't working. I also had to remove the touchpad software the updated with in order to get the touchpad working. How do I get the numeric keypad on the right to work again? I have an ASUS U57A.
I have 4 partitions. 1 => System Reserved 2 => Win 10 3 => Win 8.1 4 => Storage
When I try to boot into the win 8.1 it gives me an error. Even after restoring the win 8.1. partition from a Macrium image.
What gives? Two days ago I decided I wanted to shrink the win 8.1 partition.
I made a macrium image of my Win 10 partition (because I'm not crazy) and I already had a macrium image of win 8.1. I started shrinking the 8.1 and the computer went unresponsive so I rebooted. I used EASEUS Partition Manager.
I found out later that the reason the computer halted was because the version of EASEUS I used was outdated.
I attempted to boot into 8.1 and was greeted with the error. (Will update this post presently with the picture.)
I updated EASEUS and successfully shrunk the 8.1 partition. I took that unallocated space and enlarged the WIN 10 partition. Still unable to boot into 8.1.
Used macrium to overwrite the 8.1 partition.
Computer refused to boot completely. No Win 10 or Win 8.
Macrium restored the Win 10 partition, and the Win 8.1 partition. Discovered something interesting. Macrium restored the partitions as if I had never shrunk the 8.1 partition and enlarged the Win 10 partition. Is it supposed to do that?
The touchscreen has stopped functioning since the recent Windows 10 upgrade. Everything else works great. There are no new drivers I can find yet Lenovo claims that this device is Windows 10 compatible.
I just installed Windows 10. Now my laptop monitor won't work - only the external monitor. I go to Graphic setting and click on multiple displays, but it states it doesn't see another device only the external monitor. Tried disconnecting the external monitor and rebooting, but the laptop display still doesn't turn on.
I have a two monitor set up, with my main monitor being a 27" screen and a second 22" touchscreen as a secondary monitor.
I can only get the touchscreen monitor to pick up touches if I make it my main monitor. As soon as I switch my main monitor back to my 27" monitor touches to the touchscreen monitor appear on 27" monitor.
In Outlook, I rely on the auto fill when typing an email address. usually, the name fills in after typing one or two letters. Since upgrading to windows 10, this feature no longer works. Although the list of correct email addresses appears, when I click on it, it no longer fills in the name and I have to completely retype the email address.
I'm trying out the chromecast device to hopefully eliminate having to move my laptop across the room and connect it via hdmi every night to watch movies on my tv screen. In windows 7 I could just drag the file into a new chrome page and it would open the file which could then be cast. Now when I drag a movie file into chrome it creates a download window in the bottom of chrome like any other file download, and then if I open it from that it just opens my default video player and plays the movie file. Any way to view local video files in chrome browser like you could in windows 7?
My router is supplying IPv6 to all the LAN clients in my house. In particular, IPv6 is working on my Windows 10 desktop computer, but not this laptop. This laptop is a Windows 10 Pro OS, and I don't see IPv6 connectivity when I look at the connection in the Network and Sharing Center. When I look at the network adapter (wired) properties, it shows that IPv6 is enabled in the networking software.
The laptop used to have IPv6 connectivity with Windows 10 before I installed the giant threshold 2 update last night, now IPv6 not working on the laptop.
what I can do to diagnose the problem with the laptop? I've run the Windows troubleshooters, and they don't find any problems (of course). Even my Apple and Android mobile clients have IPv6 connectivity.
After a recent Windows 10 update on my laptop and my work computer the date no longer shows on the taskbar. The clock is visible and the calendar pops up when you click on it, but no date. No settings were changed by me and everything is enabled as far as I can tell. Is this just some sort of glitch or is there something I am missing to bring the date back?
I installed W10 yesterday and now the USB ports on the right side of my laptop no longer recognize anything. I don't even get the message that the laptop knows something is plugged in. There is a USB port on the left side of the machine that is working fine, but the ones on the right are ignoring me completely.
I tried that Windows 10 registry fix, and my laptop no longer recognizes my password. It keeps saying my password is incorrect. I got the update error on both of my laptops, but I tried the registry fix on an older laptop before I tried to fix it on my main laptop. My laptop starts fine and I get to the log in screen okay, but my password is no longer being recognized as correct. Did I destroy my laptop? I followed the directions exactly.
I'm trying to just run my laptop as a desktop, as the screen hinges are faulty. Its a Lenovo Y410P. I know how to switch the display to the external monitor in the control panel settings. But I want to make it so that I can put the laptop to sleep or restart the laptop, and upon boot up have the login be displayed on the second monitor exclusively.
Currently, when the laptop is started from sleep or restarts, it will display everything only on the laptop screen. Then I have to open up the laptop, switch settings and send it to the external monitor.
Monitor is a ViewSonic VA2265smh. I'm running this via HDMI cable.
