Can't get 2nd monitor to work!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys,

Trying to set up a second monitor for my system. Not for Eye Infinity or anything, but just a little Dell 15" monitor that I can use for watching my temps, checking email and etc while gaming. The Dell is not getting a signal from my card. I have been on Google for an hour or so and still have not found a solution. I have switched out cables and checked the monitor by plugging it into my laptop and it works perfect. My card has more than enough umpf to do the job. My main monitor is connected by DVI where as the Dell is a VGA and I am using a adapter with that.

Any ideas?

Thanks!
