VGA to HDMI for Dual Monitor

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

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.

Here's a link to an adapter I purchased

Thanks for your help

The VGA needed to be connected to the DVI-I port via a VGA/DVI-I adapter. And the DVI monitor to the HDMI port.

It will better using VGA-DVI converter than using VGA-HDMI ones.....

VGA-DVI converter usually bundled with most card, u may can get it for free from friends/family...

I don't have a open DVI port though. The only one I have is being used up by my current monitor
