Hi everyone. I just bought a 2nd monitor for school and I cannot use both at the same time. I have a Radeon 6970. I have a DVI port and a HDMI. I was using my HDMI cable when I was using only on monitor. Everything was working fine. But now, when I try to use a VGA cable in my hold monitor, it doesn t detect the cable. (Vga: No input signal, HMDI: Active) I plugged both capable in the same monitor and I m trying to switch between HDMI and VGA. I have the converter for VGA to DVI. I tried 3 cables and 2 converters and it doesn t work. I tried the same thing on my 2nd monitor, doesn t work either.

Because there's only 1 HMDI port in my video card and I want to use it on my main monitor. The one I bought today. So I want to switch to vga on my old monitor so that I can use my HDMI on my new monitor.
I use DVI, It starts has a VGA from my monitor and I use a converter for the port. Sorry if I m confusing. I m trying to switch between HDMI and DVI, but both monitor go blank when I remove the HDMI cable and try to use the DVI one.
