View Full Version : ASUS G75VW 17.3" Full HD - Problems with extra screen

01-31-2013, 10:38 AM
Hey guys, this is my first post here. I've been trying to search up on my problem but cant seem to find any answer to it. I bought my G75VW 4 months ago, and lately decided to add an extra screen. The problem I am facing now is when I connect this 24'' LED screen the graphics go low and I see alot of black pixels on the extra monitor (not the laptop screen). Do anyone know what I can do to get two perfectly working screens without blurring black pixels on one of them or whats making this problem?

The reason for wanting an extra screen is to run WoW, MW3 and CS:GO on the extra screen which is 24'' and then having interwebz and other programs running on the laptop screen.

Here are my specs: GeForce GTX670 3GB,Core i7-3610QM,8GB RAM,750GB HDD, DVD±RW,BT,W7H

Thanks in advance!

What resolution are you using on the external monitor? Try increasing it.

Still got the problem, I dont know how to explain the problem properly in english, but when I connect the screen and set it up correctly like the picture one replied here + max resolution, the picture on the extra screen got like some kind of really small ''waves'' which is very disturbing while playing a game. It's not easy to see while just looking at the screen, but when you look closely you can see it very easly. Any ideas?

possible to post your montior settings and your desktop? and i'm thinking this could be problem with refresh rate. does your other monitor support higher then 60hz refresh rate?. if so look for the settings for refresh rate put both on the same level.

Desktop setting is 1920x1080 and same with the monitor. The monitor does not support higher than 60hz.

Could the problem be me using a VGA cable and not HDMI?

It could be the VGA cable not being properly shielded. Try it through HDMI.

This or it's possible you have noise in your line. Plug your monitor in a different outlet. It may be getting interference from the G75 AC adapter.

what do you mean by a different outlet? And what can I do to solve this? Really annoys me those small flashes on the screen while playing..

Did you try using an HDMI cable like taz291819 suggested?

I'm referring to a wall outlet, plug your external monitor power cord into a different socket that your Laptops AC adapter isn't plugged into, separate them from each other.

Did you by chance check to see if the connections on the back of your monitor were snug and not loose?

vga won't work on such high res, I'm not sure for the HDMI either, because : " The maximum pixel clock rate for HDMI 1.0 was 165 MHz, which was sufficient to support 1080p and WUXGA (1920×1200) at 60 Hz. HDMI 1.3 increased that to 340 MHz, which allows for higher resolution (such as WQXGA, 2560×1600) across a single digital link.An HDMI connection can either be single-link (type A/C) or dual-link (type B) and can have a video pixel rate of 25 MHz to 340 MHz (for a single-link connection) or 25 MHz to 680 MHz (for a dual-link connection). " So you should set your monitor to 60 Hz. If you have thunderbolt port /mini display it will work with that. Also what dreamonic said could be the issue.
