AMD Radeon HD 6450 - Dual Monitors

I bought this card a while ago and installed it into my computer without any issues. Games run fine but I recently bought a new screen leaving my old one to gather dust. I decided to try dual monitoring knowing that I had 3 output slots on my graphics card. The new monitor has VGA and DVI while my old one had just VGA.

My graphics card looks like this:


It has 3 outputs, VGA, HDMI, and DVI but only the VGA works.

I have bought a DVI to VGA adapter and that didn't work.
I have bought a DVI to DVI cable and that didn't work.
I have bought a HDMI to VGA cable and that didn't work.

My new monitor with DVI to DVI had no signal. The HDMI to VGA cable and the DVI to VGA adapter with my old monitor gave no signal as well.
I came to the conclusion that the HDMI and DVI outputs are both not working. But on the support site on AMD says you could use two of the outputs at once.
Is there a place where I could enable either HDMI or DVI? I have already updated my drivers with no luck.

Can anyone fix this problem? I really hope the card is not the problem because I don't think I can return it anymore.

    CCC wouldn't even detect the second monitor.
