Dual Displays do not function

Hey,

I used to rock Dual monitors all the time a while back and it was easy as hell but ever since I bought a new tv and switched to w7 (same time) I cant seem to get dual monitors to work anymore.

I don't know what causes it, each screen works fine individually, and if I have my monitor plugged in and then plug in my tv and scan for new displays my tv takes over and the monitor becomes blank.
So I can't have both displays running at once anymore and it just refuses to recognise both.
I also have the newest drivers for my gpu.

My tv is hooked up with a vga cable and my monitor is hooked up via HDMI, is this the problem?


Any help would be appreciated.

I assume you have a DVi output, a VGA output, and an HDMI output. Only 2 of the three work at one time, but your HDMI output may be tied to your VGA output on your card. If your card came with a DVI/VGA adapter, try using that on your DVI port and connecting your VGA monitor that way (unless it has a DVI port) and see if that helps.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
