Windows 7: Dual Monitor. Need help. :(

Dual Monitor. Need help. :(

Hello !

I have a custom built computer, have had it for awhile. I decided to recently get a second monitor(it seems to be all the hype!) but I have been running into multiple problems.

I'm trying to run both, VGA + HDMI(VGA HDMI adapter), with AMD(ccc).
Yesterday, both were working fine.
The next day, today, I come home, turn it on, VGA screen is working, HDMI is black, until it gets to desktop, then VGA also goes black. I have to unplug, HDMI, for VGA to work.
Once I plug in HDMI and my computer detects it, they both go black again..

I know I have a custom computer, but I have tried holding down FN + every F button. I have tried restarting, unplugging both.... I have read tons of forms, but most are on laptops. I'm running out of ideas.

Please help!

so monitors have only vga connection that i could find. so you got an hdmi to vga adapter. is that the only other port on the card besides vga?

Because DVI doesn't carry sound?
