To use more than one display


  1. Make sure you have securely connected the additional displays you want to use to the appropriate connections on your NVIDIA-based graphics card installed on your computer.

  2. Verify that your displays are plugged in and turned on.

  3. From the NVIDIA Control Panel navigation tree pane, under Display, click Set up multiple displays to open the page.

    The box under Step 1 lists all the displays that are connected to your system, and shows to which GPU they are connected.

  4. Check or clear the check boxes to select the displays that you want to use.

    Icons in the box under Step 2 appear, corresponding to the displays you selected.

  5. Click Apply to activate the new display configuration.

    Note: If any one of your displays isn't showing an image, make sure to repeat steps 1. and 2. If that doesn't work, restart your computer and repeat the above steps.

When a display is first activated, it is set in extended mode.  Extended mode displays are identified by number in separate box icons.

To identify which display is represented by an icon, right-click the icon and then click Identify to see which display shows the same number as the icon. You can also move the mouse cursor over an icon to see more information about the display, such as manufacturer, model, connection, and resolution.
