Hooking second monitor, freezes pc.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello all!

My main monitor is a dell U2311H and im trying to hook up a 17inch philips monitor.

But when i go to the resolution settings to make the second a left extension of my main, when i hit apply, the screen goes black, comes back again and then cursor, keyboard and pc, freezes and the only thing i can do is reset.

I've done this 4 times and the same thing occurs each time.

Help!

Dell is on DVI and the other one in VGA.

Don't know if this helps but, i've done this before with the exception of having windows 7 32bit (worked flawlessly) while at the moment i have the 64 edition.

Um... 2 days ago, I opened Afterburner and second monitor (the 17 inch one) started flickering. After 1 min PC just hanged. Same happened when I reinstalled the latest drivers....

Don't know what to do. But I had no issues before starting Afterburner, so i unninstalled in hope that'll fix it. Well, it didn't...

Help!
