    Unhappy VGA out for 2nd monitor - MA785GT 5770

    This is so simple I must be wrong; I've found discussion /close/ to what I need, in threads about cross-fire, but nothing precise. I must be just wrong.

    I'm pleased as punch with my setup ... ArmA2 hi-res, FSX maxed out ...
    ... but I can't find my 2nd HDI connector. And FS w/1 is PITA.

    So I look at the VGA connector and think ... why not?
    No joy.

    Go into BIOS and toggle Surround View. (Yes, you're right, rubber-chicken voodoo.)
    No effect.

    Am I barking up the wrong tree here?

    Truth is ... with the 5770 sitting there and Catalyst running ... I can't imagine how the PC could possible respond to the hardware hanging off the VGA post. (IGP, right?)

    so ... in case this sloppy quick-fix is valid ... what am I missing?

    TIA

    That's true; you're absolutely right.
    But it's not the solution cuz that's not the problem. Please read my post. The question is about using the VGA connector.
    I added more emphasis to make it clearer. But heh I thought the Subject was pret'near clear enough.

    but I can't find my 2nd HDI connector ...
    So I look at the VGA connector and think ... why not?
    ... in case this sloppy quick-fix is valid ...
    Something I learned early on in trouble-shooting: making my favorite solution fit breaks things.

    no you were clear i just thought it would be easier that way,did you try adjusting the monitor resolution? and scanning for extra displays in ccc when you connect second monitor through vga port?

    Well yes. If I could find that danged adapter I'd use it.
    *blink*

    id you try adjusting the monitor resolution?
    We don't seem to have any sync lock here.
    The device doesn't appear. It's as though it's not connected. How can I possibly adjust resolution?

    and scanning for extra displays in ccc when you connect second monitor through vga port?
    "ccc" ...
    ... I dunno. I appreciate your time / effort, but ... is that something to do with Catalyst?
    What I see in Catalyst is exactly what I see when the device is not connected.

    You know where to look to see device setting / parameters, that stuff.
    Me too.
    No need to list them.
    I meant what I wrote.
    Really. Honest. Truly.

    I think it's basically impossible.
    That's my guess.
    I'm waiting for someone to say, "No, only GPU is accessed". That at least would be clear.

    FWIW "Surround View" is a parameter I've never before had to deal with.
    If you look to see how the system works
    Likely you will find that it doesn't.

    No, only GPU is accessed" on second card :)

    J/K, but not really. If you have Crossfire setup you can only connect devices to the first card, did you try the VGA connection on it? Or you may need a DVI to VGA adapter if you need to use a VGA connection for this second monitor

    Nothing CrossFire ... very plain-vanilla setup. No "first card" because no "second" card.
    It's either very simple or not possible.

    Or you may need a DVI to VGA adapter if you need to use a VGA connection for this second monitor
    Now see I don't understand why folk don't read what I wrote about this.
    Yes, a 2nd DVI adapter would do the trick. Which is why I wrote (repeatedly?) that I can't find it. *sigh*

    This doesn't address the issue: is the VGA/IGwhatevuh non-functional?
    If you look to see how the system works
    Likely you will find that it doesn't.

    Ahh, Sorry I guess I was sleeping!

    I thought you were having issues with Xfire/SLI

    Please give me a link to your specific graphics card, or the model #/name.

    So the issue is just that you can only use one connection of the back of your card correct, and you need to use both?

    Hey, no problem ... this gave me pretext for (finally) registering on this forum.

    I thought you were having issues with Xfire/SLI
    Nothin' so complicated.
    It's so simple nobody reads what I wrote!

    Please give me a link to your specific graphics card, or the model #/name.

    As I wrote ... honestly, I'm gettin' a little peeved here ... this just wastes your time, too ... I can't find my 2nd adapter. No, really, what part of that is confusing people?

    Gawd, I just re-read my post and now I'm feeling neurotic.
    There's a VGA connector there.

    naww ... it's simple ... it's there to be read ... black font on white background ...
    ... sorry to be peevish but this is just weird.


    Mobo and card are in Subject; Card is also in .sig, along with CPU ...
    ... I have no idea what the problem is but I can tell you I've been a system trouble-shooter for 3+ decades and this ain't how things gets done.

    I'm trying to help, but your comments are kinda cryptic and are not helping me to help you out.

    No offense meant at all, I'm just having a hard time trying to see the exact problem through your humor (Which is funny BTW).

    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 :)

    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.
