Windows 7: Trying to dual monitor / HDMI + VGA

Trying to dual monitor / HDMI + VGA

I have a Radeon XFX HD 6950 that connects (VGA Cable) to my main one, a tiny w1752 LG monitor,and it works fine. However, when I connect to my second monitor, a Samsung Syncmaster T240M using HDMI, it displays a black screen, even though it is being detected by Windows. I've tried selecting it as my main monitor, duplicating and all that but nothing changed. Any idea? Thanks.

You might try connecting only the HDMI monitor and adding the VGA monitor after.

I noticed I had an old cable connected to my second one, removed it and all it says now is "check cable signal", even though HDMI is connected. After this change I tried doing as you said but no changes from "check cable signal".

Okay, my bad, I got it solved, I had it set to PC "channel" on this secondary TV-monitor, somehow that wasn't the right channel.
A quick question then: why does my mouse sensitivity feels changed when using 2 monitors? And is there anyway I can keep a Flash player fullscreen on a secondary screen? Whenever I select something on my main it will minimize the player.
