Sapphire 6870 Dual Monitor Problem

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have 2 vga monitors, my main one in the top dvi to vga slot works no problem. I ordered a dvi-d to vga adapter for the bottom one and it fits perfectly but gives no signal.

I now understand that the bottom one does not support analogue signals, so whats the easiest way to get my second display up and running?

You can only use the top DVI as the lower is DVI-D Digital only. DVI to VGA will not work because it can not convert digital to analog. So if your monitor only has VGA input, you will need this adapter.
