My Dell just installed a new driver for the graphics card and once that was done I can only get 2 of my 3 monitors to be recognized. I tried going to the device manager and rolling back the driver to the previous version that was working without any problems but its not showing that option now. Any suggestions?
Win 10, 64 bit, CPU, 1 monitor on VGA, 2 monitors on display ports.
Your processor does support 3 monitors. How Dell has implemented this with their latest driver is a question you should ask dell.
Thanks, saw your replies. In one of them it had a link to certain configuration, would that work? or am i out of luck.
I dont know what MST is =/
MST means Multi-Stream Transport. It is a capability that allows a single DisplayPort stream (port) to support more than one connected monitor. It can be used two ways:
For either case, the limit is three monitors total; that is all that Intel HD/UHD Graphics engines can support. As well, understand that the monitors are sharing the bandwidth of the one DisplayPort channel. While this is no issue for 2K monitors, 4K monitors will have resolution and/or refresh limitations.
Now, all that said, the issue is whether the system - including its BIOS - has support for MST included. If it doesn't, this doesn't work. In the original conversation, the OP purchased a device but it didn't work. You could try doing this yourself with your system, but Dell doesn't have a great track record here.
Hope this helps,
