Using the adapter
Once the software and hardware installation has completed,
the secondary monitor can be configured as extended
mode, mirror mode or primary display.
Extended mode
In this so-called “extended mode”, your display will be
spread over the secondary monitor(s). This mode allows
you to perform multiple tasks more effectively without
overlapping windows.

and then right-click to select <Screen Resolution>.
2. Drag the icons in the window at the top of the screen to
match the physical arrangement of primary monitor and
secondary monitor.

be identified as either "2" or “3”, depending on your
computer, although there may not be a total of 3 screens
connected.
37
3. In the Display drop-down menu, select the monitor which
has been to assigned to the secondary monitor from step
2.
3. Select <Extend these displays> in the Multiple
displays drop-down menu, and then click <Apply>.
4. Click <OK> to exit the settings screen. Once the setting

is not connected, the desktop still pans to the secondary
monitor and it’s possible that your cursor has moved to the
extended desktop so that you cannot find it on the primary
display. To solve the problem in such a case, connect the
secondary monitor to the adapter or keep moving your
mouse to try or unplug the adapter first to restore the cursor.

Windows+P> button to bring up the menu and then cycle
®

the settings (screen resolution, color quality and refresh
rate) for the secondary monitor. But you can manually
adjust the settings as required. However, the settings of the
secondary monitor are limited by that of the primary monitor.
For example, even though your secondary monitor supports
a resolution of up to 1920x1080, you can only configure it to
use 1280x1024 due to the primary monitor only supports a
resolution of up to 1280x1024.

resolution of 1920x1080, then 1920x1080 is not possible to
set even the connected adapter supports 1920x1080.
Standby and hibernate, shut
down and restart
■ When the adapter is connected to a computer and an
external monitor, if the computer goes into standby or
hibernate mode, the external monitor display goes blank.
■ When the computer returns to an active state, the external
monitor display keeps the same settings it had before the
computer went into standby or hibernate mode. However,
if the secondary monitor was set for extended mode,
windows that were previously on the external monitor
will not move back to that secondary monitor. Also, if the
secondary monitor is in extended mode and the computer
requires a login after standby or hibernate mode, the login
screen appears on the primary computer monitor, not the
external monitor.
■ If the computer is shut down, restarted and logged in,
again the secondary monitor returns to the same mode as
it was before shutdown.
49
Using dual adapters
1. Install the driver as described in the Installation and
preparation section.
2. Connect the adapters to a computer. The system
will automatically complete the installation. For more
connection details, refer to Connection section.
3. While two adapters are connected to a computer, in
most cases both adapters’ supports extended and mirror
modes.
Disconnecting the adapter
■ If the adapter is unplugged from the computer, the
secondary monitor goes blank. All windows and icons
move to the primary screen.
■ On reconnection of the adapter, the adapter returns to
the same mode as it was before disconnection. However,
windows and icons that were previously on the screen will
not be moved back.
50
Uninstall the adapter and driver
1. Open the Control Panel > Programs > Programs and
®
®
Features on Windows 7 /Windows Vista , and Add or
®
Remove Programs on Windows XP .
2. Select <ViewSpan> and click <Uninstall or Remove>.
3. Click <Yes> to confirm the removal. During the removal
process a couple of DOS windows will pop up.
4. Click <Yes> to restart your computer and then unplug the
adapter now.
51
Troubleshooting
The secondary monitor is blank
■ If the monitor power LED is green (in most cases)
▪ Wait a moment for the monitor to show the video as
sometimes it takes time for the secondary monitor to
show the video.
▪ Reboot the system to try again.
▪ Make sure the computer is not in standby or
hibernation mode, which will lead the secondary
monitor to be blank.
■ If the monitor power LED is red (in most cases)
▪ Check if the connection is properly made.
▪ Uninstall the driver, unplug the adapter and reinstall
the driver to try again.
▪ Uninstall other USB video adapter drivers, and then
®
re-install the USB 3.0 to HDMI Display Adapter's
driver.
The secondary monitor is flickering
■ In mirror mode, increase the refresh rate of the main
monitor. This will in turn increase the refresh rate of
the secondary monitor.
■ In extended mode, increase the refresh rate of the
secondary monitor.
52
Cannot play video file using Windows Media Player
on the extended monitor or abnormal by full screen
display
®
■ Upgrade it to Windows SP2.
The motion is not smooth when playing video in full
screen mode
■ Reduce the resolution of the display to 640x480 or
800x600.
■ Set the adapter to extended mode.
■ Terminate any other CPU intensive applications
running on the computer.
■ As some media players require DirectX hardware
support to correctly operate, try a different media
player which requires less DirectX support.
■ Drag the media player to the secondary screen and
close the player. Restart the player and it should open
on the secondary monitor. Now try playing the media
file again.
■ Try reducing the hardware acceleration level of the
primary display (NOT the secondary monitor) to
levels 1, 2 or 3 and restarting the media player. The
hardware acceleration can be found by right-clicking
on your desktop and click Properties > Settings >
Advanced > Troubleshoot. Some players use this
setting even when playing on a different display.
53
■ The video playback may be unusual when the
secondary monitor is mirroring the primary display
and there is another extended screen connected to
the computer. The extended screen must be disabled
before the content will be correctly cloned to the
secondary monitor.
In extended mode, the secondary monitor appears a
black border around the desktop.
■ This happens when the resolution used by the
secondary monitor is larger than the resolution used
by the primary monitor. Configure the secondary
monitor to use the same resolution as the primary
monitor.
