Windows 8.1 Can't do an "Extend Display"

  1. #31

    I forced a different Intel HD Graphics driver to load using Device Mangler. Then uninstalled the previous. Windows found the monitor. All is good. But now I have another question that I will post in another thread.

    thanks for your help

    hello all. i solved the problem in windows 8.1. on other windows your computer is left side of your 2nd device............and windows 8.1 your computer is right side of your device. if your extended device is tv, just move your mouse out of your tv right then you will see ur mouse on your computer.
