    Exclamation Second monitor not working on dedicated GPU

    Hi I have two VGA monitors, an Asrock G41M VS3 R2.0 mobo and my GPU is ATI PowerColor 6850 which has two DVI slots, I use adapters for both VGA monitors. If I connect any of the two monitors in the first slot they will work right away (along the plugin confirmation sound). And if I connect any of both monitors to the second slot I won't get anything, nor a signal or confirmation sound.I also tried auto detecting via Catalyst Control Center and Windows Desktop Resolution. I have the latest drivers installed.

    Please help me out!

    I found this on the Spec Description:

    Display Connectors DL-DVI-I/SL-DVI-D
    And in NewEgg:

    2 x DVI (1 Single Link, 1 Dual Link)
    Could this have anything to do with my issue?

    PowerColor support responded to the problem:

    The new AMD 6000 series support only 1 VGA signal, so it will only have 1 analog VGA signal, even if you are using VGA-DVI adapter, there will be only one monitor displaying.
    And the VGA signal connector is near the PCB one.
    Luckily my old DELL monitor has a DVI port, so I purchased a DVI Male to Male, plugged it on the second DVI port(which as support mentioned is digital only) and worked right away.
