Does your video card support dual monitors?

According to what I can find, your GPU does supports a dual monitor setup. The GPU has 2 DVI ports and 1 S-video port.

In your post you say you have the monitor connected to the VGA port and TV connected through HDMI port....so this cant be. Are you connecting your monitor/tv to your mobo?

Some pictures of how you have your connections would seriously help out.

Sounds like it is being hooked up the integrated GPU rather than the actual GPU.

You can use two monitors/displays on that card easily as long as one of them is DVI and the other VGA or HDMI. You cannot use VGA and HDMI at the same time as they are a shared resource on the card (RAMDAC), and that is why it isn't working for you when using VGA and HDMI.

You can easily find an adapter on the internet
Newegg.com - StarTech DVI to VGA Cable Adapter - M/F

That should allow you to use a VGA and HDMI at the same time unless I am mistaken.

Sorry to say, but you are. The DVI port has to support VGA via adapter to begin with. Just using an adapter won't just make it work, for that you need a DVI to VGA converter, and those can't be had for less than $5.00 like the adapters can. Also the card has a native VGA port so it is unlikely that the DVI port also supports VGA via adapter.
