    VGA not working


    Hello, i have a custom built PC
    and an LG monitor plugged in already for a while with HDMI.
    Now i got a second monitor (Dell) with VGA cable but Windows 10 says it can't detect the second monitor

    What now?

    Thanks in advance

    Is it connected via an DVI to VGA adapter?

    I think you're on the right track.

    I looked at the specs for an MSI GTX 970. It has no VGA connector. It has two DVI ports. One is DVI-I, the other is DVI-D.

    If a DVI to VGA adapter is used, it must be plugged into the DVI-I port. (The DVI-D one does not give an analog signal.)

    Exactly, why I asked that question.

    Does the Dell not have modern connectors? I am confused why you'd want to use VGA these days.

    What is the make and model of the monitor?
