It's been irritating me, i've been trying to fix this problem ever since i got the card.
I have a XFX Ghost Thermal HD6850 Radeon it comes with 1 DVI, 1 VGA, 1 HDMI
I have the latest driver installed. I used an converter VGA to DVI but my card doesn't seem to detect my monitor(Samsung Syncmaster S20B300) which didn't happen with my old card GeForce GTX 520 Thank you.

(**EDIT**) I'm sorry if i am not specific, I have a hard time explaining it in English :S which isn't my main language

Well looks like either the adapter or the DVI connector is not working. There are no settings to change should simply work.

While the port on the video card might look like DVI-I, there is still a chance that maybe it only really supports digital (DVI-D). I guess it could also be possible that the analog part is just broken too... or it's some other issue.

I guess just use DVI-D or HDMI for the monitor instead, and just avoid VGA altogether. That would be better than VGA anyways, since DVI-D and HDMI are digital, while VGA is analog. In fact, if you can avoid using VGA (analog) on any monitor, that would be even better.
