View Full Version : G55VW Muli Display Problem

07-14-2012, 09:21 AM
Hello guys,

I'm new here, I just bought a new G55VW, It is a nice laptop. However, I mostly use it for graphic work, therefore I have connected my laptop to two external monitors (ViewSonic VP2365-LED) one through VGA port, and the other one through HDMI, I noticed there are waves passing through the monitor that connected through the VGA port, I replace the cable and switch the the monitors and nothing changed. I conclude that these waves caused by VGA port, therefore ...

Q1) Is this mean the laptop is defective and I should replace it! or is it a driver issue?

Nevertheless, there is still another display port which is Mini-Display Port that I haven't tried yet. technically I should be able to connect the G55VW to 3 external monitors. Although I will need a Mini-Display port to DVI-D adapter.

G75VW-DS73 with GeForce GTX 670M displaying horizontal lines on VGA monitor. Not only annoying but gotta be bad for vision.

Are same lines appearing via HDMI port?

Unrelated question; when you connect two external displays, does laptop screen still function?

Hi KellyOfErin,

The horizontal lines on the monitor that connected through the VGA port are what I was talking about, and yes! They are very annoying (sometimes). In my experience, these lines become more visible when still images with dark pale colors attributes. However, I was planning to test my monitor on my friend G53SX laptop, just to be sure is there something wrong with all Asus laptops or just mine! And I was, also, planning to run the test on other monitor brand, maybe it is a compatibility issue!

Regarding your question, these horizontal lines donít appear when connected with HDMI, although Iím using HDMI to DVI-D brandless cable, since my monitor only has VGA and DVI-D ports.

Regarding your second question, yes, the laptop screen still functions normally. Therefore, basically, I have three monitors connected to one computer, I was planning to test eyefinity setup on a FPS game, I tested a couple of games, I couldnít run them on more than one monitor, and I guess the game itself must support this kind of resolution, as well as how much your VGA card can go!

I just read the other night, that Mini-Display port just as good as HDMI! They were invented by Apple and they support very large resolution, with very high rate of refreshing signal (frequency).

- There are some other solutions which I thought of regarding the multi-display setup, one of them is the Mini-Display port I mentioned earlier, and the other one is HDMI splitter, although Iím not sure how they will function.

Any thoughts regarding this problem? have any one tried the eyefinity setup on his Asus GXXXX laptop?
