I recently purchased an XPS 8900 computer. It came with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 graphics card. I plugged my two monitors into the card, one monitor into the DVI port, the other into the HDMI port. The image quality is terrible. I’ve tried a number of display adjustments with little to no improvement. My monitors came from my previous system, which had an AMD Radeon 5450 graphics card, and the image quality there was great. Is there some additional adjustment I’m missing?
Hi, Dan... thanks for the reply.
My 8900 only came with the top graphics card shown in the Discrete circle of your pic. That was why I had to plug one monitor into the DVI port, the other monitor into the hdmi port.
My NVidia control panel loads up fine.
It was worth a try. Sometimes it is easy just re-cabling.
What exact brand and model of monitors are you using?
What resolution are they? What refresh rate?
open NVIDIA control panel.
Display -> Change resolution
Can you verify the settings shown match the best resolution of the monitor?
If you connect just one monitor, how does it look?
I'm using a pair of Dell E2210 monitors.
I just tested pulling one monitor out, and the remaining monitor looks good.
So it would appear that the GT 730 graphics either can't handle two monitors, or can't handle two monitors when one is coming off the DVI port and the other the HDMI port.
