First of all, please include a comprehensive PC spec list when posting a problem on these forums - without it, helping can be quite difficult.

Also, please describe your issue in a coherent manner - 'connected to vga and hdmi vga is fine' really doesnt make sense.

Sorry to sound a jerk, but you gotta help us to help you! :)

Have you turned off your computer and let it reboot after you removed the VGA cable
