I've just bought a stand/sit desk 70cm x 120cm which because of lack of space has to fit almost up against a wall. I need to buy a monitor arm for my 17" monitor and there's room enough for any clamp but not for overhanging arms. So I will need a model that allows the screen to be close to the back wall without any overhang. Either that or a strong monitor arm that I can clamp at the side of the desk and that will have a long reach into the middle of the desk. Any thoughts or recommendations …

I have a late 2016 MacBook Pro running the latest version of OS X Sierra 10.12.6 Ever since I got it, I've been having a problem connecting it to external displays. Firstly, there is the 32" 4K Seiki Pro, connected via a USB-C cable. Most times when the Mac goes to sleep, the display does not come back until I put the computer back to sleep and wake it up, and *then* connect the cable when it's woken. Apple Support says this is a known bug but there is not currently a fix. Then there is the LG UltraFine 5K …

Hello, I do not know a lot about computers, so I know this is a long shot. However I really need advice! I have just got a new computer tower (its second hand) and a monitor from a family member. Both monitor and tower were in full working order before I brought them home. However, I attatched my own monitor and my partner altered the resolution, this worked fine. However, when I next turned my computer on a message comes up on the computer saying `monitor is going to sleep` this happens on both monitors, and I have no idea …

Hello, I wonder how we can use lock objects between 2 different applications. In the example below we can use lock objects to let only one thread to execute the code inside the lock object at a time. This works fine within one application. Now I wonder how we can use a lock object between 2 different applications. Is there some kind of Global system lock that can be used? I have put this code as illustration of what I try to find a solution for: object lockobject = new object(); //Application 1 void thread1() { Random rnd = new …

(I’m pretty desperate to fix this thing, so I’m going to try to be as thorough as possible) Before the problem occurred (this may not be important, but just in case): I took my hard drive out to hook it up as a slave (for storage) to a different computer. A new user account was made. Initially: I hooked the hard drive back up (and the few other things I had to unhook to get to the hard drive when I was taking it out originally) to the computer it was in first. I may have switched some power supply …

The Google Glass wearable computing 'enhanced reality' project got off the ground this week at the Google I/O Developers Conference in San Francisco earlier this week. Around 6,000 developers were present to see a demonstration of the futuristic technology which integrates a small video-display suspended from the arm of the headset which is worn like a pair of spectacles. Complete with Internet connectivity, a battery in the arm and the ability to change the perspective of the video stream as you move your head, the Google Glass prototype is no heavier than a standard pair of sunglasses and just as …

The 2nd monitor on my Windows 7 laptop stopped working today. It just showed black when I started the laptop. It has previously been working fine and I have not recently made any hardware or software changes. So far I have tried: - Checking video & power cables are connected correctly - Removed the video cable & re-connect. Both monitor and laptop detect the cable removal & replacement but monitor still black. - Windows-Shift-Left Arrow and Windows-Shift-Right Arrow seem to move the active window between screens. Still can't see anything on the 2nd monitor though. - Reboot. No change. - …

Hello Community, I'm planning on buying a new computer monitor soon but I'm not sure which one I should buy. These are the two I'm trying to decide between [LG 27MP75HM](http://www.lg.com/au/it-monitors/lg-27MP75HM) or [LG 29UM65](http://www.lg.com/au/it-monitors/lg-29UM65) thing is the 27MP75HM will be good because I can fit more code on the screen but the 29UM65 will also be good because I like to multitask (however I already have dual monitors (monitor and laptop screen)). So what would be better? more code of more multitasking (again as I said I already have my laptop screen). I'm not fussed about the price just what …

Hello, I have a Macbook Pro w/ Retina display (A1502), running Win 7 on bootcamp. I also have 2 [LG 25UM64](https://www.google.com/shopping/product/264296052983113163) monitors. The optimal resolution for these monitors is 2560x1080. However, so far as I can tell I can only hit this resolution if I'm connected through HDMI, for which the MBPro only has one port. The thunderbolt ports won't go past 1920x1080, and I tried an HDMI to USB adapter without any luck. I'm wondering if there's a way to get this second monitor to go to full resolution. Hoping someone knows how. Thanks! -EF

I have a Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 HP desktop PC when I power the computer on I got Vga input: no input signal and the monitor went back to sleep. If you do you think that is a problem with the video card it is attached to the motherboard. I also don't know that much about computers so please try to keep the answer simple.

Hello everyone, I have a somewhat strange problem with my computer. Yesterday, after I did a simple reboot to change the OS, my monitor suddenly stopped getting signals from my computer. The usual first thought was "that's it, the card is gone". Except for the monitor all other parts of the computer seemed to work fine: I was able to hear the startup sound of the OS. After some searching over the internet, I tried to stop doing cold boots like an idiot, and gave my computer 30 second time for 'freeing it's electrons'. Then.... It worked again! I thought …

Hello, I've been working on some test OpenGL programs in C++ using SDL to manage sound, window management, events... etc Today I plugged in my external monitor into my laptop and found that *no* openGL program I had written would work with it plugged in, all I get is the window frame with nothing it (you can see what window is behind it). It's quite an odd problem as it works fine just using my laptop screen, any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Yesterday HP launched a handful of new consumer-class monitors dubbed the “x-Series”. So what’s the news here? Well the screens, ranging from 20 to 23 inches all share some amazing new specs. They are all about an inch thick and they all feature mercury-free light-emitting diode (LED) backlighting. LED backlighting is going to be featured in HP monitors moving forward (including the 25 and 27 inch models that will debut on December 19th). What is nice about LED backlighting is that it can achieve very high contrast ratios, great performance and do it all at nearly half the energy consumption …

Very recently, I let my laptop (HP) battery get too low, and it died on me. Usually, upon plugging in the adaptor, everything starts right back up again. However, this time, the laptop runs, but all I can see is a black screen. I can even hear the little chime when windows starts (vista), but all I can see is black. I don't think it's a backlight issue, as I the black screen still emits a sort of "glow". I know I need a new battery, but as long as it's plugged into the power supply, shouldn't it work fine? …

I have a Lacie Electron 22BlueIV monitor (CRT). Last night while I was watching a TV show on it, the screen went to black but the audio continued. I jiggled the mouse and pushed a few keys but the picture wouldn't come back. I shut the computer down and rebooted. The picture finally came back but for only a few minutes. This happened several times before I finally shut it down for the night. I did notice that the monitor was getting very hot, but I've had this device for a few years. Today it seems to be working fine, …
