You have to use the DVI-I port to go to the vga monitor.

If you are already using the DVI-I port for that little screen you talked about in your 1st post then you`re stuck.

I would get rid of it and just use the 2 biggest monitors you have.

It is an active converter, no need for an analog port afaik. However, this is written in amazon page description:

Use your normal micro usb cable(Not included) to charge the adapter while watching the video
Active means you need to power it, got any micro usb cables?

You are not charging it, you are powering it, the adapter needs power to work.

May I just ask, why are you using vga monitors ?

Why aren`t you using all DVI or HDMI ?

Ok i will order one of amazon cheers!

1 of my monitors is VGA, HDMI output but i'm wanting to use the VGA output to my DVI D port as it gives better resolution options.

But my other monitor is purely VGA so that needs to go into the DVI I port.

Then i have my main monitor which i have it running as DVI at the moment.

I don`t understand why you are not using this monitor and an HDMI cable setting it to it`s native resolution.

AddRAM: He has special display/s for flight sim usage. You can check the screenshot from earlier.

Searched some (not much) - active means the converter also does some signal converting. Passive just re-wires the connection. As you can see I am a bit confused with these myself

I was making a statement, not asking a question, I knew why he was doing it

Just saying, he could have all 3 up and running now.

But, do what you gotta do

How do I access my main monitor if broken in a multi-monitor setup?
I have a setup with 6 monitors. Today my main monitor broke and I couldn't find a way to shut the PC down since I couldn't access the main desktop to get to the Start menu. Is there a way to change which monitor is the main monitor without having access to the current main monitor?
