Messing with monitors

display settingsI bought a new , secondhand LG Cinema 3D D2542 monitor because I wanted to replace my old VGA only monitor which had served me well. I then moved the acer T230H into the second monitor position. Working on monitors is not my favourite job. The plugs and connections are down underneath at the back which is awkward to say the least. You can’t see anything easily and it’s a lot of fiddling around. I am not sure why they cannot be on the side or the back as on a TV set but there has to be a logical reason or they wouldn’t persist.

As the main monitor the acer T230H was crystal clear and very high definition. As the second monitor it is duller and this appears to be a common problem which has not been resolved. I am still working on it. There has to be a solution. With monitors there are so many things to consider.

On both the monitors I first adjusted the settings on the monitors themselves. With the LG that meant turning off all the 3D settings which were making the picture blurry. With the acer I have it set to video quality. I’d prefer a slider bar for brightness because essentially

Dual Monitorsthat is the issue.

With the acer monitor I adjusted the size of the text and apps in the display setting on Windows 10  under the settings icon in the start menu and that is such a convenient utility for the second monitor. For both the monitors I went into control panel appearance and then advanced settings and then the monitor tab to ensure they were both running at 60 Hz. The LG had set itself to 23Hz for some reason. I also adjusted the LG in the Radeon widget . I then downloaded drivers for the LG and rebooted. It was picture perfect now as a 2D monitor.

The acer is running on a DVI connection and the LG is running on HDMI. The last thing I can think of doing is swapping cables and also trying a VGA cable to the acer. It is a bit annoying I can only get it this far so I am hoping to find the solution. As it stands, though, I love my new, cool set up.
