Hey guys I got a problem with my laptop.

When I try to connect a second screen and I extend them the performance goes down and the laptop start to lag.
If I duplicate the screen, there is no problem, everything goes fine.

Laptop:
MSI GE 70 2QE Apache pro.
I7 4720HQ
8Gb RAM
1 TB HDD (free 240GB)
Nvidia Geforce GTX 960M 2Gb
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

How much Vram does that occupy?

Are you sure that the memory graph there doesnt represent the ram?

I thought that the VRAM might not be sufficient since your GPU only has 2Gb.
None of these pictures show the the value i was looking for.

in GPU-Z open the sensors tab. There is a value called 'Memory Usage (Dedicated)'. Thats the occupied Vram

I saw that later, changed the pictures before.
It's 0 in both cases.

Id install the latest gpu drivers and check again. You might even need a bios update.

2GB of vram can be enough for 2 Displays but there is definetly something wrong with your system if gpu-z cant see the occupied vram

I already had the latest update for my BIOS.
But seem a little bit wierd, I have an update which on the MSI support doesnt exist.
I have E1759IMS.80C, but on the web page is just the E1759IMS.52D
Should I downgrade? or what should I do?

hey @el-cuxillito , i kinda have a similar issue to yours. (MSI GL 63 - I5 8300 - 16 ram - gtx 1060 6go)
If i choose to only put the display on the monitor, it lags. If i duplicate or extend the screens, it works fine. Although i had to check every settings in the nvidia control panel so that games dont lag. But the difference with you is that my pc has a chipset+gpu, so that it dedicates the chipset to the laptop and the gpu to the monitor. Have you checked the display preference/3d settings in the nvidia control panel ?

Ye already checked, I have everything updated or reinstalled. The only thing which I didn't try yet, it's to reinstall windows. And I don't want ATM do it. I want to install the windows 10 but I'm too lazy to make everything (make a copy of all my files, make a clean install, install all the drivers and things again, put back all my files...). XD
