try pressing the windows key + p and changing to extended mode, the hdmi is usually the primary monitor on a lot of cards so the vga is being disabled becasue the second monitor needs enabling in windows.

i tried making it my primary monitor then tried pluging in the vga to vga its the same, so i tried uninstalling the drivers of the sapphire hd6670 then tried pluging it,, its working that way its a duplicate. then while having 2 monitors i tried reistalling the driver when it finishes and reboot the same problem occurs no displays at all,, but you can hear the cpu reaches up to the os.

whats the problem there?? is it the drivers of vcard or the vcard itself??

if you installed catalyst control centre then you need to open catalyst control centre and enable the vga monitor.

i tried installing it, but i haven't tried enabling it, or do you mean detecting it?? but i did only install catalyst control centre when i include the amd drivers it does the same problem,, so im thinking its a software problem though i don't know any solutions for it,,

use catalyst control centre and look for the monitor options to enable the monitor.

plug both monitors to your machine and boot
you should have catalyst control center installed if not install it
open catalyst control center should look like this

under the desktop management section select creating and arranging displays
you should see both of your monitors there and what type and make they are
make sure both are enabled and if one is not right click the disabled monitor and enable it
after enabling it you should have an image on both monitors
still on the catalyst control center arrange the displays as they physically appear on your desk
right monitor should be on the right and so on
