    Default ASRock Z87 Extreme6 LGA 1150 / GTX 660Ti Dual Display...Always need both on at same time

    I have my one large monitor which is secondary that I use to watch video, it is hooked up with hdmi.
    My primary is the smaller closer one, so I use that one to surf the web, hooked up with DVI.

    As of now the closer one is only useable when the secondary is on but I would like to use my primary without the secondary sometimes.

    If I turn off the secondary the primary than shows the picture of what was on the secondary, but I don't want it to do that. I want whatever is on whatever screen to stay in that same place, not switch over to my web browsing screen.

    The secondary stays how it is when I turn off my primary.

    I didn't have this happen with my old motherboard but I did have different difficulties with that one.
    I like how this motherboard acts a little better but is there some way to fix the issue here?

    Both monitors are connected to your 660 video card, correct? I'm sure it is, just making a point.

    It's not the board that is determining what is displayed on which monitor, it is your multiple display settings for the video card.

    You can configure multiple displays two ways, with the Windows Display option in Control Panel, or the Nvidia control panel, which is also found in the Windows Control Panel. It sounds like you have not done any multi-display configuration.

    The Windows Display screen has a Change display settings option, which should show both of your monitors. You may find that you need to select which one is the primary display. The Multiple displays drop down menu will allow you to configure the secondary monitor. It sounds like it is set to "Duplicate these displays", when you want "Extend these displays".

    You may need to experiment with the settings to get the desired result.

    No. Yeah it had to do with a combination of my GTX Card and the motherboard im sure. You say i plugged the cable into my card CORRECT YES. But I plugged the card into the motherboard. I put the same build on my gigabyte motherboard i had issues with that picture not coming on sometimes I had to turn my driver off and on to make it work again bit I never had my secondary picture switching over to my primary. I still like this motherboard I'm not trashing ASRock just your reply sucks to be frank.
    Since the topic has now changed my point is different motherboards seem to act differently. As I said in my OP is my far away TV screen is hooked up as SECONDARY. Yes I know how to do all that crap already. If anyone else knows anything please feel free.

    Dear DualScreen,

    If you want to use onboard graphic and add-on VGA card at the same time, please adjust "IGPU Muti-Monitor" to [Enabled] under BIOS to try.

    Thanks!

    Have a nice day
    ASRock TSD
    Emily
