The card has 3 ports at the back : DVI, HDMI and DP.
I was running duel monitors on my old card that had only 2 DVI ports and the duel screens used to work and detect fine.
- my 2 monitors have only VGA outputs on the back of them and are BOTH fully HD ready (LG Flatron W2230S) -
However with my new card, I plugged my first monitor into the DVI port (like on my old card using a VGA > DVI adapter) that worked perfectly and with the second monitor i had recieved a DVI > HDMI connector.
Soo from my 2nd monitor it goes VGA > DVI > HDMI
I assumed this is the correct way to go about connecting to the HDMI port, however my second monitor doesn't seem to connect.
I have installed the latest version of ATIs CCC yet still no joy.
If any of you out there know anything about this or how to fix the issue i would be most appreciative.
Many thanks in advance, Maddsto

I'm pretty sure you can't convert the signal twice over converters. You'll need another converter, something like HDMI > VGA, or DP > VGA.
Having HDMI > DVI > VGA is too much.
oh ... DUAL ... i was expecting monitor vs monitor fight to the finish
^ is correct on your actual problem usually doubling adaptors is a bad idea
Many thanks for the replies.
So what im looking to get would be a VGA > DP adapter?
