New to Duo monitor, need software

Q: New to Duo monitor, need software

So right now i recently got a duo monitor setup. Before I had my 2nd moitor be my TV for movie purposes. Now i have 2 actual monitors 2 19" 1440X900. So far i downloaded a program called DUo Monitor to help it basically adds a taskbar to my second monitor.

Now i want a program to help me calibrate the brightness and color to be the same on both screens. I tried doing this manually but it's taking quite a bit and i am nowhere near. One is a Gateway other is a Dell.

Also any other tips and hints of what i can do would be appreciated.

A: New to Duo monitor, need software

Hi Chris -

Have you installed the full software for your Display adapter (video card) to see what options it has? Normally this is the next step if you don't get enough choices on the context menus when you rightclick on Desktop which is where dual monitors can be quickly configured.

I just broke down and bought the HP w2207h LCD Monitor after reading so many good things about it and I am glad that I spent the money. This in my opinion is a great monitor.

My monitor came with a CD that according to the label has "monitor drivers" on it??

My question is what are "monitor drivers" and are they really necessary? I have heard of Video Card drivers and they are sort of essential but what is a monitor driver and what will it do for me? Thanks.

Yesterday I went searching for a way to make my Chromebook a monitor using an HDMI port which I found was impossible. So now I need some software to make my Chromebook a monitor just like you would with one windows computer with dual screens. I want the image to come from my windows laptop which has only a micro HDMI (I do have a converter though) to my Chromebook. Is there software to do this? Is there a way to do this with wires? The operating systems are windows 10 (where I want the image to come from) And Chrome OS.

Can you guys suggest good monitor calibration software? I would of course prefer freeware -- or else something that isn't too expensive.

Also, I know there are actually some sites that offer free calibrating guides -- basic stuff, of course -- but supposedly good enough to permit reasonably accurate colors. I've tried a few already, but none have proved sufficient.

Have you guys had any success calibrating your monitors using online utilities? If so, which one do you think is the best?

The default and "AUTO" settings on my monitor are clearly out of kilter. So I have been trying -- quite unsuccessfully -- to calibrate my monitor using both the software provided by its manufacturer and Windows' calibration utility. I always end up with images that are tinted with too much green, too much red, or too much blue.

I have a Samsung S24B300HL -- which I have running at its native resolution of 1920x1080 at 60Hz. Not the best, I know, but I think I should be able to at least get average color quality from it.

I'd like another attempt at better color quality on this monitor before I start thinking about sending it back for a replacement.

Thank you in advance for your advice.

A:Monitor calibration software?

I know you said free, but I have never had good luck going that route (except a couple of times using the Windows Media Center calibration). Your best bet is looking for people who have the same monitor as you online and seeing how they have theirs calibrated, but be prepared to do this many times as lots of people have their own preferences as well as each monitor being slightly different (even if model is the same.) I've pretty much given up and use something like this - - but not that model exactly. These things are not too expensive but make the image calibration process so much easier.

I have tried the lastest versions of Notebook Hardware Control, Speedfan, MobileMeter, Everest Home Edition, and RM Clock Utility as well as Samurai (sp?).

This is a strange issue I have not come across before. Today I was on youtube watching a video whilst on facebook on another tab (google chorme) and Java I think asked to update, during the update parts of some images of one tab were on the display of another tab and wouldn't disappear when i went between tabs.

I plugged another monitor into the vga port and when I startup on that I can choose safe mode and that monitor will run in safe mode. During normal startup the laptop crashes but if I select diagnostic startup the laptop starts up properly and even the monitor will have a display but then I select to run my startup services, the laptop booted with display so far then restarted itself and then started without a display on the original monitor again, returning to original issue of no display except through vga port and won't boot up unless in safe mode. Is this a hardware or software issue?

I have 2 internal and 3 external HDD's that I want to monitor. I have lost HDD's in the past and it has been a terrific PAIN! and while I know that monitoring software wont prevent this altogether, it could help.

I have tried a couple but for whatever reason the programs could not read the SMART data of my 2 internal drives.

Anybody have a recommendation for a good program?

A:Want recommendations for HDD monitor software

Other than SMART software included with drives, I'm not aware of any real-time hard drive monitoring software, but there may be some.

For temperatures, I use HWInfo.

For general health, I rely on SMART, Intel SSD toolbox, and occasionally Checkdisk or the drive manufacturer's own utilities. I usually use HD Tune as a benchmark when I first install a drive.

Frankly, I'm not sure how useful the monitoring tools would be in detecting an impending failure.

I would be grateful if anyone could recommend some other software that allows me to see what the CPU temp is.


A:Temp Monitor Software For CPU

Have a looky here pal

Speed Fan

To find your CPU's temperature sensor you can leave your system idle for a few minutes, to let temperatures drop, and then go to 100% usage for a while. The temperature that rises faster is the one you're searching for. Other available temperature readings usually come from your sensor chip itself, from the southbridge, the voltage regulator, or even from an additional probe placed under the processor. This additional temperature sensor is not necessarily a duplicate. Some CPUs are not actually able to report the internal temperature from their die. To be able to read their temperatures, an additional external sensor (thermocouple) is used. In such cases, you will see two temperatures referring to the processor. The higher of the two is from the die. As a final note, please remember that not all available temperature sensors are actually connected to something. If you happen to read unusually high or low temps, they are likely to be from a disconnected (unused) temperature sensor.

Ok, I recently purchased a used Daewoo cmc2000m monitor, and my video card is an NVIDIA geforce 6800. The problem I have been having is that when I exit from full-screen games, the monitor seems to crash. The screen becomes a pixilated, wavering, non-full screen mess, and a loud clicking sound comes from the upper rear of the monitor. When the monitor is turned off and then back on, the problem persists. When I switch to a different monitor (which works perfectly), the monitor does not work, and I get a "the monitor is working, but the computer output is outside of rendering range" message. I have to reboot the system with the old monitor plugged in for the problem to resolve itself, and everything goes back to normal when I switch cables back to the Daewoo. If I just reboot with the Daewoo plugged in, the problem continues. . . I have already replaced the monitor cable, as the old one had pins missing, but that hasn?t helped. I ran the direct draw test from dxdiag, and on the old monitor the test work ok, but on the Daewoo, the problem happens after the full screen bouncing square test. I don?t know how to fix this, please help!

We have seen a lot of bandwidth monitor software Cucusoft Netguard, Networx , Netspeed Monitor etc..

I had noticed that Cucusoft netguard and Networx are slight heavy during system startup and very slow over fetching the bandwidth.

The other one i came across is Netspeed Monitor which is a handy tool.

But it doesnt seem like they havent updated the software since long time.

The issue with this program is, its not compatible with Windows 8/8.1 , its natively supports up to Windows 7.

We can run this in an compatibility mode in no doubt. But once installed its tough to get rid off.

I have installed this program and i want to uninstall this, when i try to uninstall i get an error the uninstall directory file is missing.

I ran this uninstaller under Iobit Uninstaller i got the error , then the powerful scan was done, some entries were deleted and the program was disappeared for Control panel.

But i can still find this program can run in my system as usual without any installation file!

So i have two Questions,
What is a good alternative of this Software ?
How to remove this program completely ?

A:software to monitor processes' disk IO?

If your harddrive is churning it usually means it does a lot of Read (seek) operations, this means the drive is constantly moving to a new position on the harddisk, which causes the sound. Writing large blocks to a disk usually doesn't make a lot of sound UNLESS the disk is severely fragmented.

You would be off to a good start by monitoring Input/Output numbers in Windows Task Manager.

- In the View menu select Select Columns...

1) Regshot : 34 Kb ( ). Reports in HTML format. Enough if you just want to see the updates in the registry an on your disk.

2) Inctrl5 (no more free download from ZDNET )

Same as Regshot. By default InCtrl5 checks for the existence of several specific files. Under Windows 9x, it seeks AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS in the root directory of the boot drive, and WINSTART.BAT in the Windows folder. Under Windows NT4 or 2000, it seeks AUTOEXEC.NT and CONFIG.NT in the Windows System folder. With this feature, you will not only know that a critical file has changed, you will see the differences between the saved file and the new file.

3) Total Uninstall : has a "Undo" function and a "regedit" look to show new/modified keys. Cares for the SharedDLLs. Reports in txt format. Able to uninstall an application. Can exclude some folders (TIF, e.g.), not possible with RegShot or Inctrl5. (homepage)
I must say that some applications create keys when you use them for the first time and even later, depending on the options you use. It's maybe interesting to record the second snap... Read more

I have just accepted a new Net Admin position and need a bit of assistance. I am looking for a software utility that will perform some network monitoring on the LAN and determine where network bottlenecks occur. We are attempting to determine if our existing 100 mbps network should be converted to gigabit. Plus we want the ability to determine if network performance is decreasing after lunch time cause users are listening to streaming audio. We currently are running a SOnicWall firewall that does a fair amount of internet packet analysis and reporting. We would like to have some of that on the LAN side as well. Any help is greatly appreciated


A:Network Monitor and analysis software

start with some simple stuff, eg log analysis.

You can get a good idea of usage patterns by logging NEW connections and then
sorting by destination port. You then have a map of what is happening and if you
clump the results by-hour, you see work load patterns.

Port usage implies data types (eg port 80 is obviously HTML/web stuff, port 110 or 143 is reading email, port 119 is news-groups, port 25 is email sending).

RealAudio defaults to ports 7070, 6970-7170

The advantage of analyzing your logs is no new software and you get a good
benchmark of where to investigate further.

Where to capture tcp traffic? At the company interface to the Internet (ie your external firewall) OR in the DMZ on the firewall into the Infrastructure.
This single point will benchmark both external inbound and internal outbound traffic.

i have a dell dimension 2400, and some sort of a dell flatscreen monitor. lately i have been having a problem where the screen goes black, except for a greenish flash every second or so in the lower right hand corner. at first i thought it was a simply a monitor issue, because if you physically tapped on the screen it would restart. when it restarts, it first takes you to a dell screen that says something like "DELL, image perfection", and THEN it goes back to the screen where you were. the problem seems to have gotten worse in the past month. if you allow the flashing (black) screen to stay up for a few minutes, you can still restart with a tap, but it will quickly go black again and can only be restarted by actually banging on the monitor. usually after about four restarts the monitor will stay on. the odd thing is that once it's on, the computer may be idle for hours, overnight for instance, the monitor still working with the screensaver on. but once you begin to use the computer again it will start the black/flashing thing again.

I have been having trouble with the broadband signal in my house. The router is at the front of the house in the master socket but I struggle to get a signal at the back of the house. I don't want to move the router as it is plugged in to the master socket and there is a huge difference in speed if I move it to the back.
I have had problems with the signal dropping so have tried various methods with the latest being changing the channel to one which inSSider tells me is little used by neighbours. It seems that this has improved the reliability but I would like to have better proof than gut feeling.
Please can anyone tell me if there is some software which will log the reliability of my broadband showing when the connection drops and/or maybe keep a log of the speed? I have Googled but can only find software which monitors usage which I'm not bothered about as am on unlimited.

My old monitor died the other day. *sob* It just plain stopped working, and a fellow from Compaq told me, in no uncertain terms, that I'd be best off just throwing it in the trash. Ah, well. It served me well for 10 years...

However, I have since installed a new monitor. Ol' plug-and-pray did me good, finding the driver and installing the monitor without so much as a pop or a squeak. However, since then, I've had a few issues with programs ceasing to respond when the Open/Save dialog boxes are called.

A few programs are okay (no freezing), a few are semi-okay (dialog opens but other clicking causes lockup) but most simply begin not responding as soon as Save/Open or anything similar is clicked.

Also, for many programs, I can start the program itself, but opening a document directly (which would cause the program to open) causes the program to become non-responsive.

Any ideas? I am a complete novice at all of this stuff. If it can't be fixed by glaring at it, I get lost.

A:important! questions on authencity of various HDD monitor software?

posting the name of the software would be useful.

My personal experience, is that HDDs don't have an "estimated" life. They can run for 5+ years nonstop or fail after one week. And when they fail, they can do it with little notice. Even same brand.
Normal quality ones should generally outlast the device they are in. A little percentage fails though.

The only way is to make backups of your important data, and if you can, image the system disk regularly, so if the HDD fails you can write that image on a new disk and keep living.

Hey guys,

This is something that I've just put up with in the past (many years now) but I'm not sure if it's windows or the actual software's issue.

Most of the time I use my laptop at home with a 2nd large monitor, and in that 2nd monitor I run my 3d programs/editing software etc
So most of the time on the laptop screen I just have manuals open or a browser.

However, when I use the laptop away from home, and want to use my programs, they open up as if the 2nd monitor was still plugged in. Most of the time they won't be maximised so I can just drag it over to the laptop screen, as there is usually a bit of it hanging over the laptop screen.
Lots of the programs I use have secondary floating windows but these don't get dragged over to the laptop screen, and I cannot fetch them.

How on earth can I get them back ?

I appreciate any help on this as it's something I've not found a solution for yet, so I'm wondering if it's the actual software developers thing to fix.

I have two Toshiba laptops (Qosmio X300, Satellite P100) and they are both giving me the same issue: unusually dim screens. I've tried fn buttons and BIOS settings, but none of that seems to affect the screen.

I've done some research on the subject, and many people when they hear unusually dull screen right away believe that it's a broken backlight, but I'll explain why I do not think that that is the case.

I got the Qosmio about two weeks ago, in came installed with Windows Vista 64 bit.
This was not acceptable for my client so I installed windows XP on it instead.
So the thing I want to mention here is that the screen was bright while in Vista, then it was bright for about a week in XP, now it is suddenly dim, and no software seems to be able to adjust it. (I tried the Nvidia settings, Power settings, Bios Settings, FN keys) The hotkey program by toshiba is installed.

My Satellite P100 is also running Windows XP (sp2 or maybe 3) and with that one the issue is very similar. The screen is dull, it used to be bright and no software seems to be able to affect it.

Here are my serials:

A:Monitor Dim (Suspecting software, Not hardware isssue)


What happens if you would go back to the Vista (preinstalled by Toshiba)?
Did you check if the screen brightness would go back to the normal level?
I think you should do this because it?s really strange issue?

I mean the display brightness could be decreased and increased using the FN+F6 or FN+F7 buttons. The display brightness could change also if you would set another value in the Toshiba Power Saver. But as far as I know there are no Win XP drivers for Qosmio X300 and therefore you could not use the Power Saver for display brightness changing.

But there are XP drivers for Satellite P100? so maybe you would be able to use the FN key combination in order to increase the display brightness.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Probably the two best free gadgets I can think of are Speed Fan and HWMonitor. 
HWMonitor offers a very detailed over view of how your system is running.  It comes in two versions. The first installs on your computer.  The second is a portable version that can be installed on a flash drive.  The downside is that HWMonitor doesn't have a notification in the SysTray for monitoring, but it does keep track of the minimum and maximum values.
Speed Fan had similar features as HWMonitor, but offers the additional features of SysTray monitoring and the ability to change the preset thresholds for maximum warnings.  Speed Fan also has the ability to adjust fan speeds, but I'm not sure if that option is available with your computer.
Download HWMonitor here...
Speed Fan can be downloaded here.....
Please keep in mind that both these applications are dependent on your system's sensors supporting such features.  I'm not an owner of your model so I can say for sure they will work entirely as expected.

Really hope someone can help here, I hope I haven't screwed this unit too bad:

I'm a total noob when it comes to overclocking, I'd been thinking about trying it and decided to do a few preliminary things like setting up the temperature monitor etc. My setup is a second-hand ASUS P4T-M running Intel P4 1.4GHz processor with a GeForce4TI (I think it's the 4800, can't recall off the top of my head as I inherited it from a friend and didn't look too closely).

First, I upgraded the BIOS, this appeared to successful and I had already rebooted off the new version. The Asus PcProbe couldn't find the hardware monitor device, I think the P4T-M may not be very well supported board by ASUS (it's the RDRAM version, which wasn't too popular with consumers), so I had a look around for something else...

I found the "Motherboard Monitor 5" app, and since it's been around for ages I gave it a try - I seriously doubt there's a problem with this app, much more likely I've done something stupid while installing it.

So I went through the install, after which I rebooted, and there it was, my machine fails POST before even getting through the Video BIOS boot to the M'B BIOS screen, preferring just to sit there with a blank screen screaming POST fail tones at me: one long, two short (Video adaptor fail), then repeated high short tones (temperature alarm I think).

Do the reset with the jumpers I think around 20 seconds should do it depending on your board. Put the jumpers back to how they were and restart. If you get nothing try the cmos battery reset. I don't know how long your supposed to have the battery out for the bios settings to reset but thats another way of doing it.

Hi All,

I have two issues

#1. I have installed Windows vista 64bit installed on my laptop. Recently I noticed that even if my laptop is kept idle for many hours it doesn't enter into sleep mode. (Earlier it used to enter into sleep mode after 20 mins of idle time.)

I can see the hard disk light blinking continuously.

I suspect some activity is going on because of which laptop is not entering into sleep mode.

#2. Same case with my broadband. I have a broadband account and it requires a login to get connected to the internet. As a security feature, my ISP has set a idle time limit. If there is no network activity for 20 mins from my laptop, my broadband connect used to get disconnected automatically.
But recently I noticed that if my laptop is idle then even after couple of hours, my broadband is not getting disconnected. It shows some network activity is happening from my laptop.

To debug these issues, I need help from you. I need to know are there any softwares available to monitor what activity is going on on my laptop at any point which is stopping my laptop to enter into sleep mode when idle and to monitor which programming is currently using the internet connection and what data is being sent?

Just a thought. If you cannot find anything better, maybe a cheap surge protector, with the on off switch. You can put it right by the computer and then you can turn it on or off.

Do you mean show two windows open side by side on your monitor? If so, there are several ways to do it. One, you can left click on the top of a window and, while holding down the button, drag the window to the left or right side of the screen. Open another window and do the same thing to it, only drag it to the other side of the monitor.

You can also do the same with the keyboard. Click on a window anywhere, then, while holding down the windows key, press the right or left arrow key. do the same with the other window, only press the opposite arrow key.

A software solution that offers far more flexibility is Divvy. The trial version can be used indefinitely for free. When you click on the Divvy icon in the tray, it will put a grid onto the screen. You just highlight the cells in the grid where you want the window to resize and move to, then the last active window will resize and move itself on the screen where you highlighted. You can do multiple windows this way. It also works with multiple monitors by putting a grid on each monitor.

I need either a diagnostic procedure or some software that will tell me where the problem lies in a glitch in my home theater system.

I have a WD TV Live that I use as a networked media player for playing recorded video files (MPEG-2 streams, ts, tp, avi, mp4) through a HT receiver to the TV. At least once or twice during a one hour program the picture will black out momentarily and recover, or the whole thing will freeze (no response on the remote).

When it freezes it loses all network connectivity and cannot see the LAN. If I unplug the unit and it starts back up it has lost it's normal IP and has a IP instead.

To get things back up and running I will reset the router (TrendNet TEW-691GR). Once the router has rebooted I can access the LAN again and it will work fine for a while longer.

When the WD TV Live loses connectivity, all of the PC's on the wired network lose connectivity. I can't access the router through the PC to reboot it. I have to physically turn it on and off.

I have 2 PCs and the WD TV Live plugged into the router. The 4th Ethernet port is connected to an 8 port switch which is almost full. Not all the devices on the switch are on at one time.

It seems to me fairly obvious that it is the router dropping connections. But I can't completely rule out the WD TV Live because there are none of these problems using the other devices.

Before I shell out near $200 for a replacement I'd like to be sure. Would an... Read more

Samsung has MagicTune that allows you to change monitor brightness and presets. Planning on picking up a 27" monitor which will be around 2ft away from me and I don't want to get up every single time to change the settings.

What other brands of monitors that offer software control?

I?m looking for a software that monitors my computer, specally the temperture and send email alerts if there is something wrong.

Do you guys know about any software like that ?

A:software that monitor cpu temperature and send email alert

I found this but it's Intel only. Core Temp is widely used but i don't know of any way to have it fire an email. You might suggest it to the author though. The AddOns seem to be more about remote monitoring than sending an email.

I've got an LG Flatron L1900J Monitor, which I bought a couple of years ago. Since there aren't any buttons or contrlols on the device to adjust contrast, colors etc., an additional software is needed to do this, called forteManager. Because the CD shipped with the monitor got lost since a few years, I had to download it from the internet. There's the problem, because there are two versions on LG's website: 2.80 and 3.18, and for me 2.80 would be the appropriate version. When I click to download the older version, a file with a length of 0 bytes will be downloaded, and I couldn't download it from anywhere else. I also tried installing the 3.18 version,(although LG says the two versions are not compatible with each other), it runs, however, I'm not able to change any setting, all options are grayed out, only system and monitor information is shown. After googling a few hours, I succeeded to acquire version 2.62 x64 from the software's manufacturers (Portait displays, Inc.) website. It's drivers are not signed digitally, thus there was a little workaround needed to get the drivers working on Win7 due to the Digital Signature Enforcement. But it's not working: whenever I start the computer this way, a message box pops up the first time saying "Your display configuration has changed. Please reinstall forteManager." And when I start the software, there are also all options grayed out...

My former computer was running XP, and there was fortemanager running properly, bu... Read more

A:forteManager software not working with LG 1900J Monitor win7 x64

i have an LG monitor as well, and i could use forteManager on my old XP machine. once i built my new machine with Win7 x64, that program would not install on my machine either. however, if you are looking to adjust the color settings, try downloading Natural Color Load (its technically a "Sanmsung" program). I have installed this program on my machine (used to have a Samsung monitor) and it still allows you to correct gamma, etc. even though its not a Samsung monitor..

Every time that I open Reliability Monitor it shows that all my
applications have been installed that day. Select another day in the graph,
and all apps were installed that other day too. I'm not sure whats going on
here ? It doesn't seem to be causing any pain - other than I get a warning in the monitor every day in the software installs section, but its clearly not
right. Anyone got any ideas ? I'm using Vista Home Premium.
