Dual Display Problems

I recently upgraded my MoBo and before I did that I was able to run dual displays, after I upgraded to the M5A97 LE R2.0 the instant I plug in a second moniter, my main moniter goes to sleep. I then switched my graphics card with an identical card and it does the same thing, I updated my drivers and that did not fix it.

Specs:
Processor: AMD FX 8320 8 core processor
16 gigs of ram
Asus M5A97 LE R2.0
Asus AMD Radeon HD 7770 2GB Ghz edition
650W PSU
Large Heatsink
well ventilated case

  1. Go in your AMD control panel and there should probably be an option for dual displays, put both displays in, and when the option is active, it should work.

    This happens outside of the OS also as in when I first boot up, I am 100% sure it has nothing to do with the driver'
  3. If both displays are connected to the graphics card, then it will have to do with the card and whether you activated it or not. Just check, I am an nVidia user and that's how it works, go in the control panel, look for displays, and activate the second display.
  4. Or maybe it has to do with your BIOS, I'll check with your motherboard.

    there is nothing directly about displays at all in my graphics control panel at all

    Well then this goes deeper than what I thought.
  7. Also when I plug the other moniter in, I unplugged it and it would not go back to normal so I was forced to hard reboot it
  8. I'm sorry but honestly I won't give you any incorrect answers, this goes beyond my knowledge. I am not too common with your motherboard or with AMD systems, so I'm sorry that I can't be of any help.

    I'll wait for the next guy
  10. It turns out that my motherboard holds my graphics card loosely and when I plugged in the display I was moving the card
