I am going to verify this information and I will be back as soon as possible.
Thank you. Looking forward to reading the results of your research.
@RJL24, the Q9550 CPU does not have integrated graphics. Are you certain that is the processor in your system? Could you please attach the DXDiag report to this thread.
"Intel Quad core 2, Quad CPU, Q9550 @2.83Ghz, 8gb ram, 64 bit."
I suspect this system does not support my Daisy chain needs.
Here is the DX diagnostic info on this system..
Thank you for your help.

Thank you for sharing this information. Based on the report you provided, this processor does not have onboard graphics so the configuration you are attempting will depend on the motherboard limitations o capabilities.
My recommendation at this point is to confirm with the motherboard manufacturer if it can support DPMST/ HBR2.
How do I find out about the motherboard and its manufacturer?
How do I confirm?

Your system is made by HP, the driver downloads for the system is here: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=4065873&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4060
However, HP does not list Windows 8.1 as a supported OS for your system. Additionally, HP list 5 possible graphics options for your system as follows:
That said, if your system did have the Intel Q43/Q45 graphics, it would not support daisy chaining of displays or have updated Intel graphics driver avail for it. Intel did not provide graphics drivers for the Q43 /Q45 graphics on Windows 8/8.1. Inbox drivers provided by Microsoft are the only available drivers for this combination.
Thanks for a great explanation.
I'm not going to worry about Daisy chaining this configuration. Too complicated.
It works fine with 2 monitors normally connected: one via USB to HDMI, and the other via dvi to dvi.
Graphics are excellent this way.
Than you again.
