How do i set my desktop back to a monitor?

Recommended Posts

My sister gave me a desktop computer that is already set to HDMI, so how do i reset it so that i can view it on a regular computer monitor?

What I find strange is the fact it still thinks there is something connected to HDMI. Usually Windows will auto detect and pick a source that is plugged in. So it should revert back to secondary if HDMI is set to main.


 


Somehow I find the question quite strange, care for some more details?


 


Oh unless you have something like a TV and monitor setup then reverting back is easy.


 


For Windows 7 and 8 it's something like this:


Control Panel > Display > Adjust Resolution > you get this http://puu.sh/3HfQx/22a83ed04e.png


 


Change whatever, pretty self explaintory.

Well i've tried to plug the computer to a monitor and its not detecting it, but when i plug it back in to a HDTV it detects it. Hmmm i might try plugging it on a monitor again... hopefully it'll work.


 


Thanks for the help!

Change the setting while it's plugged into the tv :\

EDIT: You should be able to have both screens connected as well.
