IdeaCentre C5 141MB05: Setup for Triple Monitor

2021-06-09, 16:39 PM

Trying to setup a triple monitor to operate three screens independently.

I have a 2 HDMI and 1 DVI Port located near the NVIDIA Card.

Then I have another HDMI Port at the top of the computer.

 

I am able to get dual screen to operate off of the 2 HDMI but not registering the 3rd Monitor through HDMI.

 

Thoughts?

Hello @Ronin0523,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Based on the PSREF page of this machine it supports up to 2 independent displays via onboard ports (VGA and HDMI), more displays support via discrete graphics.

Depending on the GPU of the machine that's where you will find which ports your machine support.

Hope this helps.

Typically, the integrated graphics (GP) is disabled when a graphics card is installed (especially when they are gaming cards), as performance is multiple times better than the integrated GP.  If one on your monitors has DVI, I suggest you connect it via that to the graphics card.
