Preferred Solution: Lenovo Split Screen Issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Lenovo Split Screen Issue

have you tried to re-install it? before installing, un-install the application or/and drivers first, re-start your computer and install it again.

How can I make it stop running every time I start up?

Answer:Lenovo Split Screen Demo

do you want split screen to start when your windows starts? if not right click on the icon and uncheck "Launch on each boot" this would also stop the splitscreen demo from starting

Hi! I recently purchased a lenovo pro 2 and I am loving it. Just one quick question, though. I know your able to have split screen (two completely separate windows on the same display, i.e have Google Chrome on the right half of the screen, and say Word on the other half of the screen). And I am not talking about Windows Snap Window feature.  I thought this was possible to do but have no clue on how to activate it. Thanks for any help in advance!

Answer:How to get split screen on Lenovo Yoga Pro 2?

split screen only works on metro apps. you need to use the snap for desktop apps. You can run Metro IE and split screen it with MS Word.

Brand: Compaq Presario
Model: V6444US
OS: XP sp3

Problem:

When the computer was turned on this morning the entire screen (from boot start) was split into tiled copies of iteslf. Even when I go into the BIOS screen, it too is split in tiled copies. When Windows boots, the entire desktop is tiled. Each tile has it's own cursor, task bar, desktop icons, and programs. All tiles work simultaneously (not individually), so when the mouse is moved, all cursors move the same direction and click the same icon in each tile; when a program is opened, it opens in all tiles. No new programs have been installed and no updates occurred since last use (the night before).

Attempted fixes:

1. simple reboot - no change
2. system restore - no change
3. updated graphics driver - not needed
4. virus scan - clean

Does anyone have any clues about how I can remove the split and make it normal again (short of complete reinstallation)? Any help is appreciated thank you.

Hi @lmlavinjr , Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums and Welcome. I have looked into your issue with your HP Split 13-g110dx x2  and the Touchpad being sensitive. Here is a document on adjusting TouchPad or ClickPad pointing sensitivities in Windows 8. At the end of the document it mentions Updating the driver. You might want to do that as well. This should resolve your crazy mouse. Please let me know how this goes. Thanks.

Does Lenovo test the drivers they release any more? I just updated the touchpad driver today and the two finger scrolling is locked to the same setting whether you pick Traditional or Standard in the setting menu. Latest Intel Graphics Driver Lenovo released causes Youtube video to freeze in Chrome and they still haven't released an update even though Intel already did. My X1 Carbon 3rd gen has screen flicker/freeze issue after waking up from sleep. I submitted a ticket a week ago and hear absolutely nothing. According to other member, even replacing motherboard doesn't fix it. I am really started to regret my purchase.

My laptop has suddenly developed a screen issue. Out of the blue one day I noticed the bottom of my screen start to fade to white up the screen. While this would happen, the screen would become unresponsive. The computer was still working behind the scenes, just the display was messing up.
Over a day or so, it stopped the fade to white issue and just started freezing up with white horizontal lines across the screen.
I can get it to work by adjusting the lid to a different angle or pressing in on the back of the lid. Once it's in a good position the computer works perfectly, I just can't adjust the screen in any way. Slight movement (from typing etc) does not make a difference, but actually moving the lid freezes is up. Otherwise the display is perfect.

Not sure if a video of the issue would help.....I will upload and edit with link in a minute.....

Question: Lenovo G500s Split

My laptop was only a few months old at the time, now its over a year old. The case split near the hinge, so now the pressure/weight from the screen is causing the case to split from the rest of the computer. Some of the screws have fallen out and are now missing. How do I replace the case or fix it? 

Answer:Lenovo G500s Split

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Sorry to hear of the problems.  Basically you have two options in repairing since the laptop is no longer under warranty.  The first would be to contact Lenovo Support regarding the repair or take it into to a local computer repair shop.  The second is to do-it-yourself if you are comfortable disassembling the laptop or know someone that is.  Used parts can be found on-line and usually eBay is a good source. 
 
You can find the phone number for Lenovo Support in your country or area by using the link below....http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/supportphonelist_alt1
 
The link below is for your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual that will explain the disassembly. When working inside your system please follow all precautions and recommendations that are noted in the manual.

I've got a Lenovo 3000 N100, it's about 2 and a half years old and I am experiencing a screen issue:When I am running on battery power, the screen flickers, then will remain dark (though you can sometimes make out shapes) for longer and longer periods. Sometimes a restart helps, sometimes it does not. Sometimes moving the mouse helps reduce the flickering, sometimes not.When plugged in, I have no issues. Once, I started getting the flickers, plugged in and they stopped and then without my realizing it, the plug came out, but there was no recurrence of the flickering.I've got one of those extended life batteries and got it less than six months ago.Anyone have any ideas ?

My laptop was plugged into my tv via HDMI. I ran a virus scan, then restarted. During the restart, I unplugged it from the tv. When the laptop booted back up, it displayed the lenovo logo, then the screen went dark. I waited a while, then tried plugging the HDMI cable back in... and windows (10) appeared as normal on the TV, but still not on the laptop screen. I am able to turn the dark screen contrast up and down with F keys, so it's not completely black.

Basically, I can use my laptop when plugged into the tv, but the laptop screen itself is black. How can I get the screen working again?

Thanks,
J
 

Answer:Lenovo G500 screen issue

Try pressing the F10 key, you should see more settings on the TV screen where can select which display is used.
If that doesn't work press and hold down the Fn (Function) key before pressing F10.

Hi Ilyasse123 ,
 
 
Welcome yo the Community Forums.
 
It would be best to isolate which part of the pc is causing this. 
Would you have a better image using a connected external monitor . 
Would same problem appear if you turn off and turn it back on using the Novo button specifically on the BIOS for the lines.

Just about 3 hours ago I got this strange problem with the touch screen feature. I've never had any problems with my laptop until now.I touch the screen to zoom in and I notice one of the touch marks stays on the upper right corner of the screen even though I didn't even touch there. Of course it's a nuisance because whenever I try to swipe up or down it would only zoom in or out. That isn't all though.I restarted the laptop to see if it changed anything and all was working fine until I touched the screen again. I was able to swipe up and down with no problems but the moment I tried to zoom in, I suddenly lost the ability to use the mousepad (or the wireless mouse I use) and the touch screen wouldn't recognize whereever I tapped.I can only see the pointer when I'm at the taskbar. I minimize Chrome from there and then I can suddenly see the pointer again. Please help Spoiler (Highlight to read)

Hi all,A few weeks ago I plugged my Lenovo B580 laptop into my new 4K screen. When I turned on my laptop, my built-in screen showed some queer colours, then went black and lastly grey. My 4K screen received signals from my laptop, but my built-in screen was just lighted up and grey. I tried unplugging the screen, but nothing happened. I rebooted my laptop without the screen plugged in. The Lenovo logo showed up fine, but then the screen turned black and then grey with no signal again. I've tried everything I know, but nothing worked. Please help!

Answer:Lenovo B580 Screen Issue

if you say the, with no other screen connected, the computer doesnt show an image is possible that Windows things that a external display is connected. Try pressing one of the Function keys, that one that have a screen icon, to change from 'PC screen only'/'Duplicate'/'Extend'/'Second screen only', try to cycle through and get to 'PC screen only'. That should solve the PC screen, and then, if you want to continue using your PC with that new screen, do the same and cycle through the option you want, try 'Extend' because the screen will represent a multi-screen desktop and the resolution of one screen will not affect the other one.

My F1-11 keys used to do normal tasks like raising or lowering volumes if I just clicked them, however now for somereason they only do those same tasks if I hold the FN command key as well.

Hi guys! I'm writing here to get some advice for a bad situation I am having with my Lenovo. It is quite 3 years old, and a few days ago a very bad problem started: in some situations, the screen starts to flicker, everything that was showing is blocked (but for example it there is a video running I can still hear it) and then it fades slowly until becoming completely white.If I press in a random point (not always the same) on the screen or on the edges of the laptop, the screen turns back how it was, and I need to press for a bit to maintain the screen how it should be. The problem could come again if for example caused by some vibrations on the table or by ajusting the incline of the screen. My idea is that the LCD is starting to "detach" (cannot come up with a different word), so sooner or later I will not be able to solve temporarily the problem by only pressing on the screen and that I will have to send it to technical support. I cannot send it right now because i need it for work.Can someone tell me if the problem is this, and eventually how much could cost to repair it?If some more info are needed to understand better, please ask!  Thank you!

Hi there, Alex -
Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.
 
Regarding the ghost punches/ghost touch, there were some isolated issues for that issue on some Yoga 700, in addition to that, there is also a fix for it. Please see this thread.
Can you try the following? 
 

Under theDevice Manager> Human Interface Devices, can you do a right click and disable on anything that says HID-compliant device (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). 
When finished, reboot the system and observe if you still get the same issue.

Update us how it goes.

The lightly used screen hinge on my Lenovo Y50 just broke, and like many other people, I contacted Lenovo about it. I was told it was "not really a known issue" and that they wouldn't do anything because it's no longer under warranty. I informed the person that a quick search found hundreds of reports of the exact same problem, including on the Lenovo forum, but they refused to acknowledge anything. How disappointing. I will try again to get a more honest acknowledgement of the issue. If that fails, it will certainly be the last computer I buy from Lenovo. I guess that's the only recourse we have. Just buy a different product next time and hope enough people do the same so that the company eventually changes its practices.

Hi. I have had my Lenovo p500 laptop for around a year and a half and have recently been experiencing issues with the screen going completely white. I would say I've had this issue for about a month now. It will randomly go completely white and if I shut the lid or press the power button and then turn it back on it is fine. It seems to do it when it gets really hot, so I bought a cooling mat for it and that has helped some but it is still doing it. From searching around on the internet, it seems it could also possibly be a problem with the screen or an issue with the video card. How would I go about figuring out what is causing the problem?

Since I upgraded to Windows 10 I've noticed my battery (/batteries) don't work quite the same way--it used to use the keyboard battery until it was around 2-3% and then it automatically switched primary power over to the tablet battery. However, since the update, I've noticed that it runs the keyboard battery completely down before switching over to the tablet battery, which makes the keyboard freak out and not work at all (and make a weird clicking noise)--essentially cutting the time I can use it as a laptop in half. I've tried looking through all of the battery options in the control panel, but nothing seems to relate to changing how the battery power is distributed. Is there any way to fix this (preferrably without revertig back to Windows 8.1)? (For the record, it's an HP Split X2 13t-g100 currently running Windows 10) Thanks

Hi @Aces234?,Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I came across your post about the Notebook, and wanted to assist you! I have looked into your issue about your HP Split 13t-g100 CTO x2 PC and issues with the battery. I am seeing that if you change the power plan options to balanced option in the Notebook will help. Here is a link that will help. Go into your power options.Select Balanced and click Change plan settings. Click Change advanced power settings. Then save setting changes. Default levels for Windows 10 seem to be on High Performance, which will drain the batteries. You could  try using the Windows Update Troubleshooting tool to fix any updates that have not come through for Windows 10.  Please restart the Notebook twice to make sure all update have been completed! Here is a link to help improve battery performance. Active tiles on the desktop can drain the battery.This link will help you test and calibrate the battery for you in Windows 10.Please let me know how this goes.Thanks.

Batt one drains in two hours 100 percent left on second. Keyboard stops working, usb stopps working.   Has been going on for months.  Six months ago i could get may 4-5 hours out of it not sure where the batt levels were at.  Maybe worse with Aniversry update.  Also sd card reader stopped working years ago. Read some where it is a hing problem  so i moved the base and tablet back and forth 50 times and it started working but only for  a week or so.  May a fluke.  Help any ideas out there.  David.

I have configured my ASA 5505 for SSL VPN remote access and have configured split tunneling and its working fine except for DNS resolution for the Secured Tunnel. I can ping the IP addresses of my remote network and can even use RDP to access a box, but DNS resolution will not work and I must use the IPs.

I added Split-DNS for my domain name. What else am I missing?

Hi, I have two Lenovo G480 laptops bought few months before. It has Core I3 second generation, 4 gb RAM, 500 GB HDD.  Ever since I bought the Laptop perceiving good quality of Lenovo products, I am faced with many issues. First MIC quality is horrible. Second, the Windows 7 is crashing randomly.

Friends, I have a Lenovo Idea Pad U430 Touch (WIN 8.1 64 bit) and the touch screen seem to be having an issue. I had spoken to the Lenovo Support 4 times and spent more than 10 hours on this issue so far. The bubbles appear at the top of my laptop and the mouse pointer goes haywire. This occurs when I start my laptop, for a few minutes and also intermittent - does not happen every time I start. One support person asked me to do a factory reset and I refused as I would be losing the entire set-up and have to spend more than 10 hours restoring it back. I wanted to escalate the problem and yesterday another support person has given an idea to isolate the issue by disabling the touch screen as mentioned in this thread. I just did a Google search and looks like this is a manufacturing issue based on the posts in this thread.Contents from the thread I found in the web:  So I've uploaded this video to document the problem I'm having with my Lenovo Idea pad Z400 touch screen. Every so often, the screen would just go berserk. The video show the left hand side of my laptop with all those circles popping up as if someone if touching the screen. Well, no one is touching the screen ... the laptop is doing it all by itself. And when I try to log out, I couldn't because the mouse functions have been affected ... have to shut down the laptop by pressing the power button. Very frustrating. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znItnUW8feQ&list=UUbaNFySaNij9lqkST4SdeQQ&index=3... Read more

Answer:Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch Screen Issue

I just would like to make the following suggestion in support of the recommendation to factory reset the unit: 1. Run OKR backup and do a user backup. Save it to folder in another drive to be sure. 2. Do the restore through OKR and select restore to initial backup. This will restore to factory default. 3. If your problem does not exist anymore then it could mean something is going on. And you can start deciding to whether to reinstall those third party programs or not. However, if the problem still exist run OKR restore but this time choose user backup and point to where you save the backup. This should put back the unit to the present condition with all your third party programs and files intact.

Hey guys  Quick question here: Just oppened my new Yoga 520 today and I noticed somehting strange happening on the screen. From the  3 pictures below:-1st is how the desplay looks from a front angle. The only flickering/anomalies you will notice is from the camera limitaitons on my smarthpone.-2nd picture is where the issue is clear in the picture and morso with the naked eye. These humps become very noticeble when you view the screen from a side angle.-3rd picture is just to emphasize the outline on these humps which are more visable from what can be captured on my camera. Also, these anomalies stretch on the uppers side of the screen as well. Can anyone tell me what these are? If I should worry? If they are normal or of they will get worse, and if I should take the notebook the a lenovo shop to change something on the desplay? Thank you for your time!

I bought this 21.5 inch touch-screen all-in-one computer for my kitchen counter top a few days ago from best buy.
 
Here is the link:
 
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenovo-21-5-touch-screen-all-in-one-computer-intel-pentium-4gb-memory-1t...
 
The experience has not been very good. Right after reboot, this computer gets a fantastic wifi download speed at around 40Mbps.  
 
But as time goes by, the wifi speed drops and drops and drops to something like 0.5Mbps to 5mps.
 
I tested through speedtest.net.
 
So, I often times have to reboot in order to get a better WIFI speed. But then as time goes by, the connection speed drops and drops. 
 
Please note that the same does not happen to my macbook pro at the same location, it always gets 40 to 60Mbps.
 
I've done a little research online, and some people suggest that I uninstall some Lenovo proprietary software, which I did, but it didn't help at all.
 
The network adapter is realtek 8821ae wireless lan 802.11ac pci-e nic.
 
If this is easily fixable, I'd rather keep it. Otherwise, I am returning it to Best Buy.
 
Any idea? Thanks.

My computer's screen keeps flashing off then on when I plug/unplug the power cord. This only tarted happening recently. Not sure why. The only thing that I could think of that would cause it was the windows update my computer performed last night when I shut the machine down. Otherwise, I have no idea what's going on. This computer is fairly new too. Maybe only a month old.

Hello, I have had a problem with my laptop for a while now and have only just been able to capture the issue on video. The problem started many months ago, perhaps the start of 2015. Bascially the screen flickers very badly and sometimes across the whole screen but it only happens when the main body of colour displayed is black. As you can see in the video, the second I press the windows buttton the flickering disappears. This is why I have been unsure whether or not it was my laptop hardware or software. I would appreciate it if someone knew how to fix this. Video: https://youtu.be/a3C-TzavBtg Thanks Lewis

However I have seen that lenovo energy management is going mad. It doesn't change anymore the brightness if you have the laptop plugged in or running on battery. At the same time it changes its settings by itself. Anyone else having this problem? I went back to BIOS 59 and the problem is gone.

Hello everyoneI have a problem with a second hand Lenovo C200 All in One system I've been given. My usual stick with new hardware is reinstall Windows 7, which went fine. It took me a while to find the drivers due to this site, but I did and installed them all. This also went fine. I then noticed when I came back the screen was black and wouldn't respond. I looked it up on here and found a solution suggesting the Intel Graphics update 3150 (working from memory might have the wrong number there) was causing the problem. I uninstalled this and found that it was. This is rememdied by an aparent BIOS update.Now my issue comes when finding the BIOS update for the system. It doesn't exist on this site. I've found one for the C200 thinkpad, c200 notebook, but nothing for this AiO system. If someone knows, or has a download for this from a trusted provider I'd be greatful. I'm not going to give the 2 I found a shot without clarification first... Thanks for any help.

Answer:Lenovo c200 all in one desktop windows 7 issue blank screen

hi neilodmt,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Looking at the Windows 7 Boot Process, the OS loads up the necessary dependencies, drivers, and system registry hive as soon as the Windows 7 logo appears.
 
it's possible that during the Windows Update, the system installed a display driver or an update to the system files that's causing the black screen issue. If you're able to see a display during POST / Windows Recovery then there's no need to open up the machine.
 
To isolate, can you try one of the following:
1. Boot in Safe Mode (Windows will be forced to use a generic display driver). if this works:
  a. Open Device Manager > Display Adapters > (right click) on the display device > choose Properties
  b. On the Display Properties, navigate to the Drivers Tab and click Rollback Driver then hit Apply > then Ok.
  c. Reboot the machine in normal mode and observe.
 
2. If you're using a Windows 7 Home Premium (without SP1), re-install the OS and temporarily disable Windows Update. When you get to the desktop, install Windows 7 Service pack 1. If successful, create a System Restore point and install the other updates from Windows Update.
 
 
Let me know how it goes.
 
Regards

I just started it an on the right side of the screen there are some points on the screen where the screen is brighter flickering. It looks as the screen is registering input touches, even if there are none.
 
In fact, working with the device is only possible if i'm switching thr touch device off in the Device manager in windows, otherwise the lapttop closes windows and is doing some other nonsense.
 
The same trouble comes up after upgrading on windows 10.
 
Is there anyone could help with tht issue, please?
 
Thank you very much indeed!

I am share my experience with this forum as i could not hold Lenovo support supervisor ( customer relationship). Hope some one from Lenovo customer relationship department could read it  and keep Lenovo customer happy.  We purchased our Lenovo Idea-Pad in September. In the middle of December, we experienced a screen flicking issue on the Idea-Pad. When the laptop powered up, the screen would flicker colored lines across the screen. We called the support line for help and still have not resolved our issue. For a rough summary, here are all the steps that we went through from start to end when we tried to diagnose the issue with Lenovo support: We were first told to remove the power panel and hit the power button. (To release the static power on laptop) After doing that, we were able to login to laptop, but soon saw the flickering issue again. Flickering issue is NOT related to static power residing on the battery.We called back to Lenovo support again. This time, we were told by support to download new video card software image from your website, (Although the image version on our laptop is newer than the download version) Knowing this would not fix anything, we did it anyway, and still saw the flickering.  Flickering issue is NOT caused by software drivers.So we called again. This time, the customer support asked us to restore all the software back to manufacture defaults. At this point, I highly doubted this would be a software problem, but still rel... Read more

However it may be orange because of the battery light illuminating it and it could be un lite. Fans or hardrive seem to fire up in this short time. The battery is connected and AC is plugged in as the battery doesnt last long so I mostly only use it with AC. The screen doesnt flinch in this time. Had no problems previously.

How can I have more than one web site (split screen) on my screen using ie10 from the metro screen.

I can do it from the desktop but I have not found a way to do it by launching ie10 from the windows 8 metro screen.

Answer:split screen using ie10 from metro screen

That's the new feature added to IE11 in Windows 8.1, I don't think we can have IE11 in Windows 8.

Hi guys, I'm having an issue when I'm in certain apps (Facebook being one) that when I click on a typing area the on-screen keyboard is actually covering that typing area and I don't get to see what I'm typing. Is anyone else having this issue?
Thanks,

I bought my Lenovo ideapad from a best buy in Canada at the end of August 2016, I have been having unprovoked screen issues so I called the Lenovo support number on July 24th, last week and explained the issue. They said my warranty was up and so I explained the situation and showed them the reciept that proved I bought it at the end of August, and so they rightly accepted that I was still applicable for the warranty. I was then told that within three business days they would send me a shipping box to send the laptop back to them in. It has been a week now and there is no sign of the box and no real update or explanation from Lenovo. When I check the status of my repair order online, it shows: Order status: New OrderOverall Status: in Progress which isn't very helpful because I have no idea if theyre still processing the shipping of the box, or if the box has been shipped and is just delayed or if there was an issue for some reason with sending it. Any explanation or insight would be greatly appreciated. Connor

I want to run dual monitors from my T530, or, better yet, from the 4337 docking station. Can I just get a USB with a split pair of VGA ends?

Answer:T530 lenovo thinkpad, need dual monitor cables/converters: just a USB to split into 2 VGAs?

Hi,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
Yes, you can. You may search for VGA splitters on ebay or amazon. But if your cable is too long, the signal quality will degrade. Alternatively, you can use the VGA port and display port for dual display purpose.
 
Best regards,
Mithun.

Question: split screen

is there a program to split the monitor in half for like two people playing on one machine

Answer:split screen

Hi cole455 and welcome to TSF !

If you want two people to play the same game against one another on a single machine I'm afraid that's only possible if the game allows it (look for a player vs player split screen option).

If you want two people to use different applications at the same time on one single computer then take a look at this thread : http://www.techsupportforum.com/f255...pu-210421.html

I found this other related article but haven't heard of any freeware for XP lately :
http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/0...ktop-software/

If you only want to share the desktop space equally between two windows then look at this article : http://www.online-tech-tips.com/comp...in-windows-xp/. The application will have to run in windowed mode.

Depending on your video card, there'll be other options to customize your desktop in the advanced display properties.

Question: Split Screen

So my Dad just got a new laptop, and it has this feature that allows you to use a second screen that you attach as a split screen (two screens displaying different things off one computer). I have also seen this on many newer model computers under the desktop settings. Can I do this on my older XP laptop? Does it pertain to just software, or hardware too? Do I just need to bite the bullet and get a new computer?

I just turned on my laptop after 5 days of not using it. It was in the same place as before, so it wasn't dropped or moved and no one has touched it. I go to turn it on and see that the screen is split vertically about 2/3 to the right and the image to the left has been duplicated. If you have seen this before or know what is the cause please help. I made a video of the computer booting up and put it on youtube. Split screen problem - YouTube


thank you for any help you can give

Answer:Help with split screen.

What is the make and model of your machine? Looks like you have a motherboard to screen cable loose. Try moving the lip up and down or moving the laptop around, if the issue goes away or worsens then that will confirm that you have a loose cable. Take it to a repair shop. If it is still under warranty call Gateway for repairs.

Are you sure you did not drop it? Does anyone else have access to your laptop?

Question: Split Screen on TV

Hi, I'm new to this forum. I need help with a split on our TV screen. We turn our system on it seems normally for 1-2 minutes, then the screen splits for another 1-2 minutes and the TV screen goes blank with lines. Does anybody have any ideas. I've hooked a DVD player direct to the TV and it works perfect so I know it's not the TV. Thanks, Tom T.
 

Answer:Split Screen on TV

What brand of TV and how are you connecting it? Is there a firmware update available for it?

I've had issues with cheaper TV's getting flaky with anything above 1366/1024x768 coming in through the VGA input. Even my Sony didn't consistently recognize HDMI from my laptop until I updated its firmware.

Question: split screen

I was wondering if there was any way possible, to hook up my old normal pc monitor and making it a slit screen? Having an editing software open in one frame, while browsing in the other. My other monitor is a acer.If so, what cables do I need other than  a usb to hdmi, do I need a special graphic card, or would that be unaccessible on a all in one desktop pc?Thank you.

Answer:split screen

L3xy Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!I read your post about your display questions and wanted to help. 1) Split screen: Win10 has a function known as Aero-Snap in which when you have a window open, then open a second window -- and drag that window to the right or left edge of the disply, it immediately splits the display into two windows, each occupying half of the screen. 2) Second monitor: This depends on the output jacks on your PC.  If it has an HDMI, DVI, or VGA jack, you can connect a video cable to that and then to a monitor.  If there is no such jack, an option is something known as a USB-to-VGA adapter in which you can plug this into a USB port and the other end into a video cable connected to your monitor. These adapters also come as USB-to-DVI, have different resolution limits, and different prices.  You should Google to see samples to check out resolution limits and prices.Good LuckI am a volunteer and I do not work for, nor do I represent, HP.========================================================================If you feel my suggestions helped you, please click the Thumbs-Up symbol to say thanks!If they helped resolve your issue, please click "Accept As Solution" to help others find similar information.

Just purchased a B520 for a new business.. Can anyone explain to be the purpose and benefit to using the split screen???I think I figured out how to use it - my question is why? Thank you,Dawn

Answer:Split Screen

Hi
Welcome to Lenovo Community
 
A split screen on a computer monitor is a useful way to work simultaneously in multiple program windows. This can benefit any user who needs to refer to one document or web page while writing in another document window. It is also helpful for users who need to copy and paste data between two documents. A split screen reduces the time and hassle of constantly switching back and forth between windows. Windows makes the split screen setup easy to use. Both screens remain active. Anyone can create and use a splits screen monitor within seconds.

My father in law had me order him an HP Split 13 x2 PC from Best Buy.  I was going to set it up for him then take it to him  when I went to St. Louis for Christmas.  I unpacked it this weekend to begin the set up and the screen will not come on.  I had it plugged into the AC adapter and tried it plugged in and on battery.  I also tried it with the keyboard and without.  There seems to be power (wifi light and caps light come on), but nothing shows up on the screen.  I've tried powering off and on with the button on the back, but I feel a slight vibration from the screen, but nothing shows up.  Can you help?

Answer:HP Split 13 x2 PC screen won't come on

Hi Eric90125,

 

I think the best thing to do would be to go to Best Buy and have them look at it. Not sure about the vibration in it.

 

Hope this goes well.

Answer:split screen

Is it a Dell 630? Actually it can be any note book made since about 2005. The video chips are installed using something called pin grid array. little balls of solder are melted at each contact on the chip. what is happening is your heatsink is clogged and has gotten so hot it has remelted those balls of solder. Go to you tube and search fo solder reflow. you may be able to fix by putting the motherboard in the oven or use a heat gun. you Will also need to clean the heatsink and silicone anpossibly the thermal pads depending on make. get those on ebay.

Question: Split Screen

Hello. I am encountering a very strange problem. My monitor on my laptop is displaying horizontal split screen, where both sections display the same thing.

I have looked everywhere in settings that I know that could possibly make it go back to normal but I can't see anything about a split screen.

Also, I am running on vga graphics instead of my graphics card because the drivers fail to work and everytime I try to update the driver I get a bsod on reboot. My graphics card is a 8600m gs.

I am thinking the graphics card is bad thats why the drivers don't seem to work. But my main problem is this split screen. Any ideas on what is causing that?

My OS is Vista Ultimate 64bit and the laptop is custom built from Cyberpower.

Answer:Split Screen

Do you get the split screen with vga.sys?
