Man Cave Setup - One PC / Two Monitors / Two Desktops

Try to connect it to the TV, it does sound like a driver issue or compatibility issue with the USB hub.

Do you some details about your PC, especially the motherboard and GPU ?

As I said above, it requires support of the DisplayPort Alt Mode (or Thunderbolt 3) which is fairly common in most types of PCs but the desktop market is lagging behind as usual and it isn't well supported there yet.

There's no USB port on that graphics card and I don't see mention of it on that motherboard. Given that the only dedicated video output is an HDMI 1.4 connection it's clear video wasn't a priority for MSI. Does your CPU have integrated graphics?

So it looks like I'll need to get a Displayport to HDMI adaptor to run from my GPU (1 x HDMI / 3x DP) to the HDMI of the Monitor (it only has VGA/DVI & HDMI)

No IGPU unfortunately

Assuming you have a spare PCIe slock, you could get a very cheap, basic GPU card, This is £14 inc delivery and has HDMI out. Should be fine for the Acer monitor.


Or £15, this has HDMI and no fan,

Might be what you need, the multi-monitor controls in windows are fairly basic
Finding this very difficult to setup (ended up using Windows 10 and extended desktop) but alot of the software I want to run on the touchscreen independent of the LG TV doesn't play nice)

Thinking it will be easier to go down this route instead
