    Need help with dual monitors


    Hello. I cannot get a dual monitor setup to work for the life of me. I've made a LITTLE progress though by tweaking the BIOS to load from the Mobo VGA port first on boot, but now the second monitor just stays lit up with the windows 10 logo and nothing else, while the first still works just fine. Windows will not detect the second monitor, nor will extending it on the projector settings work. The main monitor is plugged into DVI on an old ATI Radeon HD 7700 Series card. Forget the exact model and that. I believe it's an H.I.S. Radeon. But I'm going through all the options and i'm scratching my head here. help would be appreciated.

    EDIT The Radeon card I have only supports one DVI connection and one HDMI. Both monitors I have are VGA/DVI.

    I'll happily be wrong, but I don't believe you can run one from the mobo and one from the video card together.

    Disable the mobo GPU in BIOS.

    Then get an HDMI/DVI adapter so you can run the second monitor off the card with the first.

    Thanks for the response. it's actually working now from the onboard VGA slot and the DVI on the graphics. dont know what fixed it. maybe an automatic driver update somewhere who knows. but im not questioning it lol
