I cant use show desktop on 1 display setting without my other monitor turning off.

I have 2 monitors but different types of monitors, both work fine as "Duplicate these displays" or with eyefinity but i cant make either one of them as a primary desktop or desktop on 1 or 2 display without the other monitor going black or into sleep mode like it is not detecting the other monitor.

I have a AMD radeon 6900 series video card and my monitors are connected to the DVI port (top left looking horizontally) and HDMI port.

Thanks for your help.

    Sorry for wasting your time but i hope this helps someone else.
