View Full Version : BENQ projector & computer

11-10-2013, 10:06 AM
Hi I have a BENQ projector that I have hooked up to my desktop running Vista, it does everything I want ok but when it boots up (before it gets to Windows), nothing displays on the monitor ... that comes thru the projector. and switches from the projector to the computer when the windows logo comes up.

hope that makes sense!! is there any way to change this?? I have it setup "configured independently from eachother" but changing that setting changes nothing!

Pre-Windows startup, it will be a BIOS setting, either motherboard or GPU, for which output(s) to use when multiple are connected.

Yea, my second monitor is the first to light up on bootup. Never bothered to look at why!

If they use the same connector type just swap the cables.
You can change which is the primary display in windows if that mucks it up. Otherwise if it's different graphics cards you can pick which is primary in the BIOS.

Or just live with it, no big deal.
