Plugable UGA-2K-A USB 2.0 to VGA/DVI/HDMI Adapter and Powerpoint Presenters View


I have found your product “Plugable UGA-2K-A USB 2.0 to VGA/DVI/HDMI Adapter for Multiple Monitors up to 2048×1152 / 1920×1200” and seen that there were some problems with a Quick Books software product. I have an HP Pavilion Desktop running W7 (Home 32) which has only one video card. I’d like to be able to test out a Powerpoint 2010 presentation using Presenter’s View. This facility of Powerpoint 2010 only works on PCs/Laptops where there are two video cards installed - whether or not a second monitor is actually connected and I was wondering if your product is exactly what I need to deceive W7 & Powerpoint 2010 into thinking that a second monitor is there. I have no other need for a second monitor so this is an expense that I’d only like to make if I am sure it will work! Hence this email. Thanks for your help

Hi PPowers,

Thanks for posting your question here! When you install and plug in the Plugable UGA-2K-A, Windows 7 does detect it as a separate monitor even when a physical monitor is not connected to it.

So you would be able to test out a PowerPoint 2010 presentation using Presenter’s view .

I would also like to clarify that as long as Windows Aero is enabled on the Win 7 system, no issues are seen with Quickbooks software.

Hope the above information helps! If you need any additional information, feel free to post back here or shoot us an email at We are here to help!
