i tried switching them around. now the new monitor is on and the previous 1 doesnt get detected. ive tried both ccc and windows cntrl panel 2 detect the other monitor.
this is the way i hav them setup
the benq G925HDA monitor is in top slot with a vga cable going from the monitor into a converter block into the DVI / VGA on the graphics card.
then the second monitor. AOC f22s+ conected to the bottom DVi with the original DSUB to DVI lead.
these r the specs on both if it helps.
i dont want them set as the same desktop. i want 2 use the f22s+ for games as before. then hav the benq seperate for desktop and net. not dual monitor gaming.
i hav just read a review saying that the conector is'nt for this use. it has 2 be a VGA to DVI lead. is there any truth to this
thanks 4 any help folks. much apreciated
edit: BenQ have just emailed me back saying that if i get a VGA splitter then this should sort it. i cant see this working as i want to b able 2 set the native resolutions on the monitors which are both different. where if if was to use a splitter then wouldnt i have to set it up as if it was 1 screen??
would i just be better off returning this monitor and getting 1 that has a DVI conection. then i can just conect it straight 2 the second DVi on the graphics card???
sussed it lol. my other monitor is also just analogue. so as the top slot in my GPU is the only 1 that can produce a analog/VGA signal then i will just go buy a digital monitor that will plug into the second dvi slot on the GPU.
lol yup i should of checked properly before buying. both my monitors r analog so need 2 get a digital 1
