I recently bought a Samsung SyncMaster SA300 from one of my buddies. It only came with the VGA cord which is a problem because I don't have a VGA on my motherboard. The current graphic card I am using is a Radeon HD 6750. I bought a HDMI to VGA active adapter so that I can plug in the cable to one of my open HDMI ports. However, when I plug in the monitor both screens go black.
Is there a way to run a dual monitor set up with just one a HDMI port open? I've tried lowering the resolution but still no luck.
