4 Monitors - TC-895

Would running 4 monitors on an Acer TC-895 desktop harm the computer? It has flickered 2 twice while I was in the stock markets.

    Not unless you are somehow using more power than you have available. Do you have a GPU card that connects to all four or a dock for some of them?

    No I dint think so. I use the two hdmi ports and a USB to 2 hdmi ports.

    Yeah, power won't be an issue with that setup. The flickers will need more diagnosis to figure it out...

    I've just bought a TC-895 with two HDMI ports.  I'm very surprised to see that some of you work with 4 monitors, so far I cant get my second monitor to work.  WHen going through the motions I always end up with a message like "didn't detect a second screen".  The two screens are identical.  When I plug in a screen in the lower port it works (either one of the screens) but when i connect to the upper port nothing.

    I tried in the Windows 10 pro settings, and I tried using Windows-P but nothing works. 

    Any suggestions / advice please?

    @HanSRT10 you should start your own thread for this. Let us know the full model number (TC-895-xxxx) and give us a picture of the back with both HDMI cables connected and a pointer to which is working and which isn't. I assume you have already tried swapping the cables to make sure that's not the issue?
