I am trying to hook up a dual monitor setup in my home office without much luck. The computer doesnt seem to want to recognize the 2nd monitor. I have turned on BIOS dual monitor and everything and just can't seem to get the second monitor to recognize. Here is what I have:
Asus desktop pc cm1740 series
Radeon HD 6530 D (grapichs card)
Windows 7 home edition
2 AOC e2343fk monitors (both identical)
I am currently running my "main" monitor in VGA...and trying to get the second monitor to run DVI with VGA adapter.
I have tried going to the screen resolution, updating drivers, BIOS, and even a program that comes with the monitor called (AMD vision control center) Nothing seems to be detecting the second monitor.
Specs for you PC says that it has a VGA and DVI-D port. DVI-D means that you get only the digital signals there. That is the reason why your adapter doesn't work. For that it must be a DVI-I port that has the digital and analog signals.
BUT: AOC says your monitor has a DVI port. Why don't you use that?
