Why the second monitor’s resolution less than 1920*1080?
The resolution you can use depends on the native resolutions your monitor supports. If your second monitor with native resolution lower than 1920*1080, your display screen can only run at the native resolution or lower- assuming you have a monitor with a native resolution 1440*900, when you connect to your computer, then the maximum resolution is 1440*900.
Why does the screen display abnormally or even blank screen?
Please check the following to see if something caused this issue:
- Check if your system display adapter driver is installed properly.
- If you have DisplayLink devices installed in your system, please remove the driver from Control Panel Programs and Features since these kind of devices may influence the performance.
- If you have the USB to VGA adapter connected to a USB 3.0 Hub or docking station, connect it directly to a USB 3.0 port on your computer instead.
- Out of date USB3.0 xHCI hosts may have some compatibility issues due to the specification. It could cause either blank/blinking screen, or only low resolutions supported. Please connect the device to the latest USB 3.0 xHCI hosts.
