Windows 7: Second display not detected o.O

Second display not detected o.O

So, I've got my first monitor hooked up via DVI to the first port on my graphics card and my second monitor hooked up to the second port on it and it's not detecting it. The second monitor is VGA with a DVI adapter, could that be the problem or what?

Nevermind. Solved.

How did you cure the problem? Other people might need to know.

Oh, it was a stupid mistake really. I went to Control Panel > Nvidia Control Panel > Standard Settings > Enabled Multiple Displays.
