So I've been having a problem with this all day long. Seemingly a problem that would be easy to fix has been causing me a headache for the past couple of hours.
What I want to do:
I would like to start using my small television as a second monitor. Available to connect my television are HDMI cables only. I would like to avoid trying having to buy new cables/wires for this process if I can help it as well.
What I've done:
Problem is I have an Asus mobo which doesn't allow me to simply flip a switch and start using the second on iGPU. I need something called Lucid Logix MVP. Which needs a specific driver in order to properly work.
I have the following specs:
-I've hooked up my HDMI cord from the TV to the mobo.
-I've went into BIOS to Enable iGPU, here is the exact setting:
Advanced > System Agent Configuration > Graphics Configuration > iGPU Multi-Monitor > Enabled
-I've installed Lucid Logix MVP
Now the problem I'm having is that, according to the Lucid Logix MVP I need to have some sort of driver, one of the following:
-Intel® HD SandyBridge Graphics
-Intel® HD Ivy Bridge Graphics
And I have no idea what I'm supposed to be looking for in that regard either...
Apparently I have "Sandy Bridge 32nm Technology" already under my CPU, so I would assume I would need a Sandy Bridge Driver. And I've tried installing a few already, but they are all incompatible.
I feel at this point, that I have no idea what I am doing... I'm not particularly computer Savvy, so I'm half expecting I'm overlooking something simple or I've done something wrong.
Anyone have any experience with this? I'd love any advice you guys could give me. Hopefully I have enough information, but if you need something else feel free to ask.
