If Dell Display Manager will not recognise your monitor

You may face this annoyance, Dell Display Manager does not always recognize your Dell monitor. I use this little Dell program, I really need it, and I was going mad!

As I realized problems appear when you use two or more monitors and the program is confused, or when it starts too early and the system doesn’t have enough time to give it necessary information about your monitor.

Whatever your particular case might be, you can solve the problem easily by just removing the program from the Startup folder (you can do this by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the Task Manager > Startup Tab). Then configure Windows Task Scheduler to run it with a delay of a few minutes after you have logged on.

This way you will give to the system more than enough time to inform the Dell Display Manager about the identity of your monitor(s).

    I run as admin; this disables the run at startup.

  3. Hi Adrian, as is said above in the post, you should NOT have DDM to run at startup; on the contrary, you should make a task with the Scheduler and let the Scheduler start the program a few minutes after you log into Windows. Unfortunately DDM does not include an option to disable auto startup. Just uninstall it and install it again. Upon installation it asks if you want it to run at startup. Choose NO, and after setup finishes create a task with the Scheduler as explained above.
