  3. Weird question about multiple display setup
3 years ago#1
So in my room I have my pc currently hooked up to my monitor via hdmi. Since my 770 only has one hdmi I cannot use multiple displays like that. Well I also have a tv that I would like to hook the computer up to via hdmi for when I want to watch netflix/dvd/blu rays.

Now if I plug the hdmi straight into the mobo I thought I should be able to use just integrated graphics to power that which should be sufficient for what I intend to use it for. But unfortunately I am unable to get it to recognize the monitor. In the bios (msi z87) I enabled the multimonitor setup in the integrated graphics option but it has not helped.

Yes this is an odd situation but does anyone know a possible way. A fix I may just do is purchase a dvi cable to hook up the monitor so my hdmi port is free on the tv but if I don't have to that would be nice.

Any help is appreciated thanks.

You can only have either the integrated graphics or the video card working at one time. The simplest solution would be to get a DVI cable.

Even if I do not plan on using them at the same time? What I was hoping for was an easy way to switch things on the fly.

Oh if that's the case you can go in and disable your graphics card through the Nvidia control panel I think. Your integrated graphics should enable automatically.

Some motherboards DO let you use both at the same time, I am using my i5's integrated video for a 19" screen while having my main 23" plug in my GTX 560.

They need to have that LucidLogix Virtu MVP feature to work together.
