I want to install a two-monitor set-up. After Windows 7 driver
install, Windows detects the new LG 2486L as 'LG 2486 (Digital) on Standard VGA Graphics Adapter'
and shows only one display icon as #1, failing to detect the older NEC display altogether, thus no option to extend the display onto a second monitor appears in, 'Change the appearance of your display'
I am running the DVI cable that came with the new LG monitor. I am using an VGA/DVI adapter to connect the older VGA monitor. I disconnected the NEC monitor and restarted the system using only the LG monitor connection and still get the same result. Monitors:
- NEW: LG 2486L (DVI Cable)
- OLD: NEC LCD 1530V (VGA Cable w/Adapter)
- Windows 7 64-bit
- Asus P7P55D
- Radeon HD 5770 (ATI)
Can anyone guide me through a correction of the errors or oversights I've made and help with the set up of these two monitors?
