    "I can't find my 2nd adapter" ... now c'mon, that's not cryptic.

    Can't find second adapter, explain that a bit more as I only use one. Do you mean on the back of the card, or in some software? I guess please explain in more detail with less humor :)
    I have /no idea/ how this got so complicated.
    Folk telling me to use a 2nd HDI connector. As a solution to this. After I write in plain Enligsh that I can't find it. That's in thread. That's context.

    I have 5770 (see .sig ... see Subject ... heh) and it has 2 connectors.
    /Because/ I can't find (and still cannot find) my 2nd one, I need another way to connect 2nd monitor.

    As for your 5770, I saw it in your signature, but there is several models, so that is why I asked which specifically you have.
    First, the question is: how do I enable the VGA connector on my mobo (Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H in case you were planning on asking *G*). That ... /that/ is the question.
    Second ... Radeon 5770 is insufficiently clear? given that it's entirely irrelevant?

    heh

    *scratches head again*

    heh
    If you look to see how the system works
    Likely you will find that it doesn't.

    you cant enable a second monitor from your onboard display port on the mb,you have to use either the hdmi/dvi or vga ports on the 5770,you cant use one from the mb and one from the graphics card

    Thank you. Spot on.
    Is why I wrote "either dead simple of just impossible"

    Yes.
    I hoped for diff answer, but couldn't imagine how it could serve 5770 and IGwhatchamacallit at the same time.

    Thanks for this ...
    ... now I can move on!

    the mb graphics and graphic card would conflict with each other so it has to be gpu or the mb only sorry for the confusion earlier

    Finally, the code has been cracked!

    Sorry I didn't understand what you were trying to say Ben, I was just lost in how you were replying and what you were really trying to do.

    I asked for the model # so I could check to see what connections your card has, in case it only had one type or something and you wanted to use another type.

    Model #'s on Sapphire cards look like this by the way (100283-3L, 100283L, 100283VXL, 100283VX-2L), and there is several 5770 models, so that is why I was asking to be sure.

    Now that I know what you were trying to do, Wazza is correct, you can only use either the board or the card graphic connections.

    If you do want two monitors connected though you can connect both to the rear of your graphics card if you want, did you not know this?

    Yep. Is how brain-fart works. Is why I got NORAD/SAC contract and not others.

    Sure, sure. And my 2nd daughter's had one toe longer than the rest ... dangdest tihng. And what if snow was blue?

    There is no limit to non sequitor ... is why we, professional trouble shooters, avoid them like the plague.
    So when I, fully pro, repeatedly supply sufficient and necessary data, as constrained by the case, and get bla-yada-blah, I can choose to reach for my Uzi or recall that I'm a Trotskyist. That's my choice.
    See the probability waves collapse!
    Preeeeee-xactly. Is just what we want: closure. (No "dialectical or otherwise" ... it's all dialectical.)

    Now that I know what you were trying to do
    Eeeeeexcuse me?

    Step back.

    Wazza is correct, you can only use either the board or the card graphic connections.
    Nobody asked for your 2nd opinion.

    Note the shift in tone?
    I don't doubt you're sensitive.
    I doubt your ability to focus. Don't do a job you aren't good at. That's not diss: that more than you deserve ... hard won experience. Take it or leave it. I had my time wasted here. Relate.

    Funny at times!

    I could have answered your question in the second reply of this thread, had it been clearly worded and your questions asked without all the crypticism. While that may be how you talk or write, it is very hard to understand clearly what you are asking - to someone who is not used to your style of writing things.

    And yes I get the tone, the latter comments are uncalled for, do you get mine?

    Being that I am nice, and can move on without responding in kind, I will not bring out the ban hammer.

    And in NO WAY was I trying to be condescending, only trying to help.

    /Thread locked

    Ohh, and I will take the espresso and peyote, thanks.

    That was cool and funny, and it would have been great if you kept that kind of mindset
