Windows 7: 2 displays, 1 no signal PLS HELP

2 displays, 1 no signal PLS HELP

Hi guys

All new here, joined up today!

I need help, I've looked around on here and am struggling to find a solution

Will try to explain...

I have ATI Radeon HD4350 512MB graphics card, it has D-Sub, DVI & HDMI sockets on rear. I have downloaded all the latest updates

I have HP 2010i LCD monitor at a resolution of 1600x900 this is connected DVI to DVI

I have a Samsung 40" 1080p LCD tv. I have this connected to my computer HDMI to HDMI

I want the computer to work on both displays... but it wont plat ball!

I cannot get a display on the tv; it works on startup but when Win7 is loaded the display is no signal, the monitor works ok

If I turn off the monitor by the power button the tv still has no display BUT if I unplug the DVI cable from the monitor the display on the TV comes to life, when I plug it back in the tv goes blank.

The GPU and Win7 both recognise both display units but only the monitor works

How do I get both monitor and TV display working??

Many thanks in advance

That card will only do 1 monitor on the DVI or HDMI and one on the VGA.
without adding more hardware, you will have to run the monitor on the VGA port and the TV on the HDMI.

One like this would do:
Newegg.com - EVGA 512-P1-N402-LR GeForce 6200 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI 2.1 Video Card

Pretty low end graphics though.

This information will be helpful as you make a decision on this:
What kind of expansion slot should you use for your video card?

But the most important info there is this:
"The best slot to use for video cards is the PCI-Express x16 slot. The next best is the AGP slot. The next best is a PCI-Express x1 slot but video cards which fit that slot are very hard to find as of late 2006. The worst choice for a video card is a PCI slot. "
You might be better off looking for a single new video card with the correct outputs for what you want to do. Or use an adapter as Zepher suggested.
