How to connect 3 LCD monitors to a computer

\015 I have one HANNS-G widescreen 28'' monitor; I want to connect two more 22''\015\012monitors. My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT, with two DVI and\015\012one S-video outputs. I want to be able to use the two monitors as left\015\012and right aircraft ''windows'' in MS Flight Simulator. My main monitor (28") is connected to one of the computer card's DVI outputs, leaving just one available. I can't use that one with a splitter connecting the additional two monitors, because that would give me the identical image on each of those monitors. I also don't want to use the open S-video output, either. How can I connect the main and other two monitors to DVI outputs, so I'll have different views available on each monitor? The two proposed HANNS-G 22" widescreen monitors each have a VGA and DVI input.Thanks,Doug Walsh\015

Answers :

Some cards can send 2 outputs that is split by the cable, which is connected to 2 monitors. Generally speaking though, most just split the image up

If you're not sure if your output supports multiple monitors off one output, it's almost certain it doesn't.

Alright so, i've had the same monitor for the past 4 years, no problems at all (starlogic 17" LCD) and today it decides to start turning off and on, with a very distorted computer screen when it is on. now im sure its the monitor acting up and not the computer. i've heard that LCD monitors dont go out for 20 years, and im wondering if it could be just the power supply because it turns off and on without it connected to my computer.


If you mean that it powers on and off without being connected to a computer, it could well be the power supply or the power switch. If you mean that the indicator lamp switches from amber to green without being connected to a computer, it could eith ... Star Logic Monitor
